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

The indictment also claims that Guccifer 2.0 provided documents to a United States congressional candidate about his opponent and accuses the spies of stealing information of 500,000 U.S. voters.

Former Trump campaign adviser Roger Stone, embroiled in the Russian probe, said the timing of the latest indictments in the case won't derail tomorrow's summit with Vladimir Putin.

The Mueller's team appeared increasingly focused on whether any associates of Trump knew that the Russian government had hacked emails from the DNC and Clinton's campaign chairman John Podesta and provided them to Wikileaks during the last presidential election, according to those sources.

"You can't read this indictment... and not face the reality that the United States was hacked, by Russian Federation, during the election".

The indictment charges no Americans with wrongdoing, and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein emphasized the indictment doesn't even accuse Americans of knowingly communicating with Russians.

The move comes a day after the Justice Department announced the indictment of 12 Russian intelligence officers, accusing them of a "sustained effort" to penetrate the computers and email accounts of Democrats and the staged releases of documents to impact the election. "And it's benign. So I don't know that it refers to me".

However, in a July 2016 statement, then-FBI Director James Comey said that the investigation "found no evidence that any of the additional work-related emails were intentionally deleted in an effort to hide them".

It was a well-planned, high-tech, and ultimately successful cyber-operation, carried out by the military intelligence agency of a major country.

"I think it is unlikely to be me because I never have any communication with anyone in the Trump camp regarding my one-time communication with somebody claiming to be Guccifer 2.0", said Stone. "The conspirators responded using the Guccifer 2.0 persona and sent the candidate stolen documents related to the candidate's opponent".

Still, Rosenstein said there's now no allegation that any American committed a crime.

It also alleges a congressional candidate asked Guccifer 2.0 for stolen documents, which the candidate then received.

Grant Smith, an attorney for Stone, said in a statement, "It is clear from the indictment issued today that our client, Roger Stone, was not in any way involved with any of the alleged hacking of the 2016 election".

Somebody who spoke to Guccifer 2.0 is alluded to in the indictment, though he's not named, sparking many media outlets to suggest it's Stone. They targeted more than 300 people affiliated with the Clinton campaign, the DCCC, and the DNC.
