Roger Stone open to talking with Mueller in Russia probeArrested at his waterfront home in Florida on Friday in a dawn raid by FBI agents, Stone told reporters he would not “bear false witness against the president.” Stone was charged with lying to Congress about the Trump campaign’s efforts to use stolen emails to undercut Democratic rival Hillary Clinton. Asked on ABC’s “This Week” if he would cooperate with Mueller, he said: “You know, that’s a question I would have to – I have to determine after my attorneys have some discussion.” “I’d also testify honestly about any other matter, including any communications with the president,” he said. “It’s true that we spoke on the phone, but those communications are political in nature, they’re benign, and there is certainly no conspiracy with Russia.” Stone, 66, will be arraigned in federal court in Washington on Tuesday.
