He added, "Hopefully we'll learn something about that in discovery of this case". "I am troubled by the political motivations of the prosecutors". And I will affirm that what is in the indictment about me is accurate.
Jerome Corsi, a right-wing author and conspiracy theorist, said on Monday that he was ready to testify at the trial of Roger Stone, the longtime associate of President Donald Trump who was indicted last week in the Russian Federation probe, and to "let the chips fall where they may".
Those remarks, to a Fox News livestream program, were preceded by an appearance on ABC Sunday where he refused to rule out cooperating with Rober Mueller's investigators, despite his previous attacks on the probe. "Honestly, I think I'm the happiest I've ever been in my life", he said.
Stone also acknowledged talking on the phone with Trump himself but said all these contacts were "benign" and that all he has done is be the political professional he has always been.
Late-night hosts interpreted the end of the government shutdown and the arrest of Roger Stone. Mueller has accused 12 Russian intelligence officers of hacking those emails, and it's the consensus of the USA intelligence community that those Russians "relayed material it acquired from the DNC and senior Democratic officials to WikiLeaks". A seven-count indictment in Mueller's Russian Federation probe charges him with obstruction, lying to Congress and witness tampering. A federal judge set his bond at $250,000 and limited his travel.
The indictment states that Stone received a text message on October 1, 2016: "big news Wednesday. now pretend u don't know me".
The message referred to emails related Trump's opponent in the 2016 presidential election, Hillary Clinton, being released by WikiLeaks. He has disclaimed any direct ties to WikiLeaks, contradicting an August 2016 email cited in the indictment in which he appeared to alert Stone to Assange's plans for "2 more dumps", which promised to be "very damaging".
According to the indictment: 'After the July 22, 2016 release of stolen DNC emails by Organization 1, a senior Trump Campaign official was directed to contact STONE about any additional releases and what other damaging information Organization 1 had regarding the Clinton Campaign.
He explained his attempt at crowdfunding as a response to what he hears on the street - "Hey, Roger, go fund yourself!" - and responded to Carlson's thanks with, "Pardon me?" "Please help us. Everything will be used to help defray the costs of keeping up the battle against those that would silence Roger Stone and turn him against President Trump". Miller defied the grand jury subpoena last summer and took his challenge of Mueller's authority to a federal appeals court. "If it's for Roger's benefit or not for Roger's benefit so be it but I'm going to tell the truth to the best of my ability".
