US Senate Committee To Hold Hearing On Russian Influence Campaigns

Roger Stone says claims that he colluded with the Russians prior to the presidential election are a'fiction of the Clinton campaign and the'deep state and he's happy to say so under oath

Roger Stone, a close confidante of president Donald Trump who previously served as an informal adviser during the 2016 U.S. election, is firmly in the crosshairs of the United States intelligence committee for alleged links to a Russian hacking campaign.

During the testimony, FBI Director James Comey was repeatedly asked about Stone, a self-described master of dirty tricks. U.S. intelligence officials believe Guccifer 2.0 to be a front for Russian intelligence. "It's the new McCarthyism, and it's mudslinging", Stone said.

Rhetorically, Schiff said: "Is it coincidence that Roger Stone predicted that John Podesta would be a victim of a Russian hack and have his private emails published, and did so even before Mr Podesta himself was fully aware that his private emails would be exposed?" Comey did not provide any details.

"It's only fair that I have a chance to respond 2 any smears or half truths about alleged "Collusion with Russians" from 2day's Intel Hearing", Stone tweeted. Democrats are convinced that there is circumstantial evidence of wrongdoing in need of deeper investigation - including with Stone. I am accused of colluding with Guccifer 2.0 to hack and release the DNC documents when my only communication with him via Twitter is six weeks after Wikileaks published the very documents in question.

Asked about Stone at a White House briefing Monday, press secretary Sean Spicer acknowledged that Trump has known him for a long time but didn't believe the two had spoken "any time recently".

After being down 2-0 after the first inning, Tigers second basemen Ian Kinsler had an RBI ground out in the third. Now, the team has bounced the pre-event favorite, a Dominican team had won 12 of its previous 13 WBC games.

Comey refused to comment on Stone or whether he is a part of the investigation into alleged Russian hacking.

In a series of questions posed to FBI Director James Comey, Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff repeatedly referenced some of Stone's public statements during the campaign, specifically his contact with the hacker "Guccifer 2.0", who has claimed responsibility for hacking the Democratic National Committee a year ago.

Stone also has previously told CNN he wants to testify before the committees as long as it is done publicly.

I welcome the opportunity to be sworn and testify before the any Senate or House hearing that will conduct said hearings in public and not behind closed doors. "I am willing to appear voluntarily if the committee isn't looking for the headline of issuing a subpoena".
