This morning, former Trump campaign advisor Roger Stone was arrested at his home in Florida by FBI agents as part of the ongoing special counsel investigation led by Robert Mueller.
The Roger Stone indictment
Stone, we learned, has been indicted on multiple charges, including lying to and obstructing the investigation of the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government. (RELATED: Roger Stone Arrested by the FBI.)
It’s unclear what his legal future will be at this point. Stone said in a previous statement: “I stand by my statement to the House Intelligence Committee and can prove it is truthful if need be. I have passed two polygraph tests administered and analyzed by two of the nations leading experts to prove I have truthful.”
Stone Predicts Mueller Will Eventually Indict Donald Trump Jr.
Last year, Roger Stone conducted two exclusive interviews with The Political Insider. In both interviews, Stone foreshadowed his possible legal jeopardy, candidly admitting that he was in the sights of the Mueller investigation. But, he also mentioned another target of Mueller’s that was, at the time, totally off the radar: the President’s son, Donald Trump, Jr. (RELATED: EXCLUSIVE: Roger Stone Believes Robert Mueller Is About to Indict Donald Trump, Jr.)
Here is what Stone told The Political Insider: “The special counsel is going to charge Donald Trump Jr. with lying to the FBI. Notice they’re not charging him for having an illegal meeting with a Russian at Trump Tower because there’s nothing illegal about that meeting.”
Where does Mueller go next?
With Stone now in FBI custody, and with other Trump associates like Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen facing lengthy jail sentences, is Mueller starting to wrap up his investigation by acting against any players he views broke the law? Will Donald Trump, Jr., as Stone predicted, be next?
One thing’s for sure, Mueller sure isn’t afraid to put people in jail if they broke the law, including individuals close to the President.
