Roger Stone is a confidant of President Donald Trump

Roger Stone is due back in court on Tuesday, this time in Washington DC, where he will be called to answer the charges first made against him in court in Florida on Friday in the Trump-Russia investigation - witness tampering, obstruction and lying to Congress.

Appearing on MSNBC's AM Joy on Saturday, former Trump 2016 communications and political adviser Sam Nunberg was asked about the six different occasions in which "senior Trump campaign officials" are mentioned in the Stone indictment.

Stone, a veteran political operative, is one of the closest Trump associates to be charged by Mueller, who is examining potential collusion between Trump " s campaign and Russian Federation.

More than a month before the emails were made public, Mr Stone tweeted it would soon be Mr Podesta's "time in a barrel", which critics say indicates he already knew about the hack.

But with each new charge, Mueller continues to publicly untangle Trump campaign operations and their intersection with Russia's efforts to hurt Clinton and help Trump.

In referring to Trump campaign officials and their desire to leverage hacked emails, the case brings Mr Mueller's investigation into the president's inner circle but it does not accuse the president of any wrongdoing or reveal whether he had advance knowledge of the WikiLeaks trove.

In the Russian Federation investigation, one Trump aide after another has been accused of lying to investigators, or encouraging others to do so, about Russia-related contacts during the campaign and transition period.

The FBI raided the Florida home of long time associate of President Trump Roger Stone, whose been under investigation by Roger Mueller's Special Counsel in the Russian election interference investigation. The publication exposed that the DNC, which is supposed to be neutral to its candidates, developed an animus against Bernie Sanders.

"This morning's widely-circulated characterization of Roger Stone as a Nixon campaign aide or adviser is a gross misstatement", the Foundation said in a tweet. "Mr".

Then, on October 7, 2016, WikiLeaks began publishing thousands of emails stolen from Podesta's email account. Stone proclaimed his innocence and predicted his vindication.

After WikiLeaks released stolen Democratic National Committee emails on July 22, 2016, "a senior Trump Campaign official was directed to contact STONE about any additional releases and what other damaging information Organization 1 had regarding the Clinton Campaign".

Julian Assange speaks to the media from the balcony of the Embassy Of Ecuador in London on May 19, 2017. Those indicted include 12 Russian military officers and 13 Russian nationals accused of leading a campaign to interfere in the USA election.

He testified behind closed doors to the House Intelligence Committee in September 2017. According to the indictment, Stone lied to lawmakers about not having any documents or communications concerning the hacked emails and WikiLeaks.

"Are you Roger Stone?" an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent asks the disheveled Stone, who was wearing pajamas and glasses.

Mr Stone has repeatedly said in interviews that he expected to be indicted.

Stone said any false statements he may have given to Congress would have been "immaterial and without intent".

"I do think that it's more than just coincidental that there's all of these communications between multiple members of the Trump campaign and Russians, and efforts by members of the Trump campaign to cover up and hide those efforts", he said.

He also tried to persuade a witness to provide false testimony and withhold information from the congressional investigations, the indictment said. According to the indictment, Credico initially pushed back against Stone's attempts, telling Stone that his testimony was false and that he should correct it. Stone also threatened to "take that dog away from you", a reference to Credico's dog, Bianca. Credico has firmly denied the claim.

"Stonewall it. Plead the fifth". Credico informed the committee on December 12, 2017, that he would not testify and invoked the Fifth Amendment privilege.

Over the years, Stone served as a northeast regional political director for Ronald Reagan's 1980 presidential campaign, and also a political consultant or campaign manager to other Republicans, including Bob Dole, George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush, Jack Kemp, Prescott Bush, and the former New Jersey Governor Thomas Kean.
