Grant Smith, Stone's lawyer, told Reuters that his client will "contest the charges vigorously".
Stone is scheduled to appear in court in Florida later. His case will be transferred to Washington, D.C. The Trump campaign knew about Stone's involvement in seeking information on the Democrats, the complaint states.
Straining to make himself heard above the sound of protesters shouting, "Lock him up!" He has denied taking part in any collusion with Russians.
A man who lost his sister in the Parking, Florida, Marjory Stoneman Douglass school shooting says he wished the Federal Bureau of Investigation had raided the shooter's home the way they dramatically raided the home of Trump associate Roger Stone Friday. The video shows an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent banging on the door and shouting "FBI open the door!" Trump is questioning the impartiality of Robert Mueller's investigation and says the probe is groundless, while raising doubts about whether a fired top FBI official kept personal memos outlining his interactions with Trump. And last April, Stone's tone turned harsh, denouncing Credico as a "stoolie" who should be "prepared to die".
"The charges brought against Mr". But none of the Trump associates connected to Trump have been charged with crimes related to collusion.
Stone, possibly sensing a vulnerable point in the man who he claimed was the "real" conduit to Wikileaks, threatened to disappear Bianca in an alleged bid to intimidate Credico away from testifying. And that's about whether or not he made false statements. But identity of the "senior Trump Campaign official", and of the person who "directed" this official to use Stone for information about what WikiLeaks was doing is anyone's guess.

President Donald Trump formally recognised Guaido shortly after his announcement and praised his plan to hold elections. In Ankara, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said recognising a leader other than Maduro might cause "chaos".
Would you like to see longtime Donald Trump helper Roger Stone get arrested just before 6:00 a.m.? He says his committee will be eager to learn who directed the official. "Did the president direct someone to contact Roger Stone?". Bloomberg and CNBC also reported that the official was Bannon, citing sources familiar with the situation. The indictment quotes from those emails, which had previously been made public by news outlets.
"I'd tell [the high-ranking Trump Campaign official] but he doesn't call me back", said Stone in an email, according to the indictment. The description of "Organization 1" in the indictment matches WikiLeaks.
Repeating numerous same denials made to Jones, Stone also vowed that he would never, unlike the president's former lawyer Michael Cohen, testify against Trump. Instead, Mueller's office has charged him with witness tampering, obstruction and false statements, according to the indictment.
Stone is also accused of threatening Credico.
On or about April 9, 2018, STONE wrote in an email to Person 2, "You are a rat".
"You arrest this guy in a dawn raid, handcuff him, put him in shackles, and then you don't even ask the judge to raise the bail".
