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.

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.
