Trump associates to talk to House panel in Russian Federation inquiry

Trump Ally Stone Denies Collusion With Russia in Fiery Statement

In addition to Stone, Congress will also hear from Boris Epshteyn, a former White House press officer.

In a 47-page opening statement seen by Reuters before his appearance before the House of Representatives Intelligence Committee, Stone said he viewed it "as a political proceeding" and accused some committee members of making "provably false" statements to create the impression of collusion with Russian Federation.

Stone accused committee members of making "provably false" statements to create the impression of collusion with Russian Federation.

"I recognize that those who believe that there was collusion between the Trump camp and the Russian state, now say Stone, "MUST HAVE" been involved, but that is not based on one shred of evidence", Stone writes.

Following his closed-door session with the House Intelligence Committee, Roger Stone - a longtime confidant of President Donald Trump - said that former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort expects to be charged in the Russian Federation probe.

Russian Federation denies any such efforts, and Trump has dismissed any talk of collusion.

"It's a political exercise", Stone said.

On WikiLeaks, Stone said he was kept apprised of Assange's plans to release the Podesta emails by a journalist he said served as an "intermediary". The person declined to be named because the panel's meetings are private.

North Korea Says It Reserves Right To Shoot Down US Bombers
Trump for vowing to "totally destroy" the country in his speech to the United Nations, CBS News correspondent Ben Tracy reports. Regarding who or what country might "last longer", the North Korean official added, "we will see when the time comes".

But in his statement to the committee he questioned whether Guccifer is connected to the hacking and said that Schiff had gotten his facts wrong.

Stone, one of Trump's closest political advisers in the years before he ran for president, was formerly a partner in a lobbying firm with Paul Manafort, a Trump campaign manager.

The Senate Judiciary Committee is also investigating the Russian meddling. In August, FBI agents raided his home.

In an example of Stone's own dismissive attitude to the committee's work, he tweeted a photo of himself Monday "preparing" for his testimony by reading the classic 1976 book, "The Russians", by former New York Times Moscow Bureau Chief Hedrick Smith. The Senate intelligence committee will speak to officials from Twitter Thursday.

Stone said he had spoken to Trump "recently", but not about his appearance before the committee. But he said he had watched Stone's remarks to reporters "and they were very accurate".

He also accused the committee of cowardice because he was not allowed to testify in an open forum.

He said after the interview that he wouldn't release the name of the journalist, and that was the one question he wouldn't answer in the interview.

Stone, a Republican strategist who has known Trump for many years and informally advised him during the 2016 campaign, also denies he had advance knowledge of the leak of former Clinton Campaign chairman John Podesta's emails and says he never colluded with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.
