Sarah Sanders on Stone arrest: 'Nothing to do with the White House'

Sarah Sanders on Stone arrest: 'Nothing to do with the White House' White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Friday said the arrest of former Trump campaign adviser Roger Stone has no links to the president. "The charges brought against Mr. Stone have nothing to do with the president, nothing to do with the White House," Sanders said on CNN. Sanders refused to say whether President Trump directed campaign officials to reach out to Stone about stolen Democratic emails published by WikiLeaks during the 2016 campaign. "I haven't read this document," she said. "I'm not an attorney. I'm not going to be able to get into the weeds on the specifics.

Roger Jason Stone Jr. (born August 27, 1952) is an American political consultant, author, lobbyist and strategist known for his use of opposition research, usually for candidates of the Republican Party.

The 2020 Donald Trump presidential campaign is an ongoing reelection campaign by President of the United States Donald Trump , who took office on January 20, 2017.

Video of Stone entering the event at Washington D.C.'s Trump International Hotel shows the former adviser entering to a standing ovation from dozens of Trump supporters saying "Roger Stone did nothing wrong."

Another video shows Stone receiving applause after pledging on-stage at the event to fight against the charges brought against him last week by Robert Mueller's special counsel investigation.

"I will put up a vigorous defense and I will plead not guilty," Stone told cheering Trump supporters at the event.

Stone's appearance at the Trump campaign event comes as the longtime confidant to the president faces charges related to his contacts through intermediaries with Wikileaks, the document trove website that published stolen emails from Hillary Clinton's campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) during the 2016 election.

An indictment from Mueller's team last Friday accused Stone of obstructing the House Intelligence Committee's investigation into Russian election interference by lying about his contacts with Wikileaks, as well as witness tampering for attempting to persuade his associate, Jerome Corsi, not to contradict his statements.
