Indictment Details: Trump Campaign Communicated With Stone About Emails Stolen From DNC By Wikileaks

The Hill reports:

Officials in President Trump’s 2016 campaign asked longtime Trump associate Roger Stone about future email releases by WikiLeaks ahead of the 2016 presidential election, special counsel Robert Mueller’s office has alleged.

In an indictment unsealed Friday, federal prosecutors allege that Stone spoke with senior members of Trump’s campaign staff about WikiLeaks and that a campaign official was “directed” to ask Stone “about any additional releases and what other damaging information [WikiLeaks] had regarding the Clinton Campaign.”

“Stone was contacted by senior Trump Campaign officials to inquire about future releases by Organization 1,” the document states, in an apparent reference to WikiLeaks. Those communications took place after WikiLeaks released emails stolen from the Democratic National Committee (DNC) in July 2016.
