Trump Adviser Roger Stone Says He’s “Probably” the American Cited in Russia Indictments

(From The Guardian)

The political operative Roger Stone has admitted he is “probably” the Donald Trump associate cited in a grand jury indictment as communicating with Russians who attacked the US presidential election in 2016. . . .

The indictment says the Russians, using the persona Guccifer 2.0, wrote to an unnamed person “who was in regular contact with senior members of the presidential campaign of Donald J Trump”. On 15 August 2016, according to the indictment, Guccifer 2.0 wrote: “thank u for writing back … do u find anyt(h)ing interesting in the docs i posted?”

Two days later, Guccifer 2.0 added: “please tell me if i can help u anyhow … it would be a great pleasure to me.” . . .

The indictment does not identify the person but Stone, a political consultant and friend of Trump for nearly four decades, told the Guardian via text message: “I am probably the person mentioned on the indictment. Indictments are charges and until there is a trial all claims remain unproven.”
