Terrible News For Trump Ally?
Special counsel Robert Mueller has reportedly asked President Donald Trump’s legal team for visitation and phone records from Trump Tower regarding Roger Stone, the longtime Trump confidant currently under scrutiny in the special counsel’s probe.
But Stone, a political operative known for unorthodox tactics, says that investigators will not find anything of significance in their probe.
“No visits to Trump Tower from August 2015 until after the election when the President-elect asked me to visit,” said Stone to The Daily Caller News Foundation. He advised Trump’s campaign until Aug. 8, 2015.
“Occasional phone calls with Trump in 2016 all initiated by him and certainly never a discussion of Wikileaks whatsoever!”
In recent months, Stone emerged as a major focus for Mueller, who continues investigating whether Trump associates colluded with the Russian government to defeat Hillary Clinton.
