Stone Admits Being Unnamed Person In Indictment

Fox News reports:

Roger Stone said Friday evening that he is “probably” the unnamed person referenced in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s indictment against 12 Russian intelligence officers who allegedly hacked the Democratic National Committee during the 2016 presidential race.

Stone, a former campaign adviser to Donald Trump, initially told The Hill on Friday that he didn’t think he was the unnamed person, but reversed course later that day when he appeared on CNN.

The indictment alleges the unnamed person had been in touch with senior members of Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and exchanged Twitter direct messages with Guccifer 2.0, an online pseudonym of Russian operatives.

As you’ll see in the clip below, Stone claims that being named in the indictment actually somehow exonerates him because, he says, his exchanges with the Russian agents were “benign.”
