Vice News reports:
Michael Cohen told the House Oversight Committee Wednesday that Donald Trump was given advance warning about the release of hacked Democratic emails during the 2016 campaign. “Mr. Trump knew from Roger Stone in advance about the WikiLeaks drop of emails,” Cohen told the committee.
“Mr. Cohen’s testimony is entirely untrue,” Stone wrote Wednesday in an emailed response to VICE News. Stone’s denial came despite a gag order in his case issued by Judge Amy Berman Jackson last week, who barred him from speaking “publicly about the investigation or the case or any of the participants in the investigation or the case. Period.”
The gag order, however, does allow Stone to maintain his innocence. “You may send out as many emails, tweets, posts as you choose that say, Please donate to the Roger Stone defense fund,” Jackson said, according to a transcript of the hearing. “And you may add that you deny or are innocent of the charges, but that’s the extent of it.”
