Mueller indictment: Roger Stone communicated with Trump campaign about WikiLeaks

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team is accusing former Trump adviser Roger Stone of communicating with unnamed Trump campaign officials about the WikiLeaks release of hacked emails of Democrats during the 2016 campaign.

The indictment unsealed Friday does not charge Stone with conspiring with WikiLeaks, the anti-secrecy website that published the emails, or with the Russian officers Mueller says hacked them. Instead, it accuses him of later engaging in witness tampering, obstruction and false statements about his interactions related to WikiLeaks’ release during probes by Congress and Mueller’s team.

Still, the indictment raises questions about who Stone – who advised Trump for years but left the campaign in 2015 – spoke with about the hacked emails.

 The indictment states that during the summer of 2016, Stone spoke to senior Trump campaign officials about WikiLeaks and information it might have had that would be damaging to Democrat Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
