(Washington, DC) -- Roger J. Stone Jr., a longtime informal adviser to President Trump was indicted Friday in the special counsel investigation.
The Former Trump adviser has reportedly been arrested in connection with Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe.
According to NBC News, Stone is facing charges of obstruction of justice, making false statements and witness tampering.
Stone was charged with seven counts according to the special counsel’s office.
According to the indictment, Mueller says during the summer of 2016, Stone “was contacted by senior Trump Campaign officials to inquire about future [stolen email] releases by Organization 1.” That presumably means that Organization 1 is Wikileaks.
The indictment also says Stone lied to the House Intel committee about his contacts with Wikileaks, saying, “[Stone made] multiple false statements to HPSCI about his interactions regarding Organization 1, and falsely denied possessing records that contained evidence of these interactions.”
