Roger Stone: I'm Probably The Unnamed Person In The New Mueller Indictment

Of course, that's not going to happen.

"I had communication with someone I think was Guccifer through Twitter direct message", he said.

"We" (the U.S.) did it to them", he said, naming Boris Yeltsin as the beneficiary of American help.

Former FBI Director Robert Mueller at an installation ceremony at FBI Headquarters in Washington, D.C., October 28, 2013. The date of and contents of the exchange matched what was referenced in Mueller's indictment, Deadline reported.

According to the indictment, the Russian hacking operation was so precise that they were able to pinpoint specific computers within the House Democratic campaign arm, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, and the Democratic National Committee that stored information related to the election.

The indictment charges that the conspirators "received a request for stolen materials from a candidate for the U.S. Congress", and "sent the candidate stolen documents".

Dershowitz was responding to a question from Fox News host Martha MacCallum about a tweet by Rudy Giuliani, lawyer for President Donald Trump, who wrote after the indictments were announced, "The Russians are nailed".

The document, published by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, says the officers were members of the Russian government's Main Intelligence Directorate (GRU), which suggests their work was done with the full knowledge of President Putin. He initially served as an adviser to Trump's 2016 campaign but left amid controversy in 2015.

Trump told the Washington Post he chose to terminate Stone, "because he no longer serves a useful function for my campaign".

Stone for his part has rejected any notion he was part of some grand conspiracy of collusion. But it quotes conversations he has previously admitted to having with "Guccifer 2.0." - a fake identity created by Russian intelligence.

"Leaking after the fact", Stone added, "impossible".

"On the evening of June 15, 2016 between 4:19PM and 4:56PM, defendants used their Moscow-based server to search for a series of English words and phrases that later appeared in Guccifer 2.0's first blog post falsely claiming to be a lone Romanian hacker responsible for the hacks in the hopes of undermining the allegations of Russian involvement".

Just because Stone wasn't named, does not mean it would signal one way or another if he is being looked at by investigators, Epner said.
