Special Counsel Robert Mueller arrested Roger Stone, the former political adviser to president Trump in Fort Lauderdale on Friday morning after being indicted by a federal grand jury a day earlier.
Stone has been indicted on charges of obstruction, making false statements and witness tampering as part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s wide-ranging Russia collusion probe.
Stone will make an initial appearance later Friday before U.S. Magistrate Judge Lurana S. Snow at the federal courthouse in Fort Lauderdale.
Stone has warned for months that he could be indicted, saying in public he believed Mueller was investigating whether he had advance knowledge of WikiLeaks releasing hacked emails of Democrats during the 2016 campaign.
Stone has repeatedly denied that spoke with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, contacted WikiLeaks in any way, or communicated about WikiLeaks-related matters with Trump.
