In his 24-page indictment of Stone, which laid out charges of witness tampering, obstruction of justice and lying to Congress, Mueller painted the clearest picture yet of possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.
Roger Stone, a confidant of President Trump, walks out of the federal courthouse last Friday in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
Mueller's team, which is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election, charged Stone with one count of obstruction of an official proceeding, five counts of false statements and a count of witness tampering.
According to the indictment: 'After the July 22, 2016 release of stolen DNC emails by Organization 1, 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.
Stone arrived Tuesday in a black SUV wearing an all-blue suit and tie.
The report said there was no evidence that any Trump associate was involved in the release of emails by WikiLeaks or had access to stolen material before it became publicly available.
After Stone's arrest, Trump sought to distance himself from his one-time aide, saying on Twitter, "Roger Stone didn't even work for me anywhere near the Election!"
The Stone indictment also claims the Trump campaign reached out to Stone for information on Russia's hack of Hillary Clinton's emails, suggesting Trump had no clue what Russian Federation was up to, and thus the entire Mueller investigation is a politically motivated fraud. "I'd also testify honestly about any other matter, including any communications with the president".
"I'm falsely accused of lying under Congress, which I did not do", Stone told reporters on Monday as he left his home to travel to D.C.
"They are very detailed and I think he's going to need a much better defense than the one you just heard", he told ABC. There is no allegation in the indictment that Stone actually communicated with Wikileaks.
Republican Senator Marco Rubio said working with WikiLeaks should be considered a crime because it was tantamount to cooperating with a foreign intelligence agency. Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) agreed that it's a "pretty damning indictment" and said Stone's defense is pretty typical of "every white-collar defendant in this circumstance".
Mueller's team and lawyers with the US attorney's office for the District of Columbia are jointly prosecuting the case against Stone.
Stone was arrested early on Friday at his home during a massive Federal Bureau of Investigation raid in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Speaking outside court on Friday after being released on bail, Stone told reporters: "I will plead not guilty to these charges".
He has come under criticism from Democrats for the memo, which he sent Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein . Former FBI Director James Comey has said Trump asked him to pledge loyalty before firing him in May 2017.
