Stephen Colbert compares Roger Stone to a comic book villain

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.

United States President Donald Trump confidant Roger Stone may be accused of lying and tampering with witnesses, but it's equally notable what he's not charged with: colluding with the Kremlin in a grand conspiracy to help Trump win the presidency in 2016.

Roger Stone, a longtime adviser and confidant of President Donald Trump, pleaded not guilty Tuesday to felony charges in the Russian Federation investigation after a publicity-filled few days spent slamming the probe as politically motivated.

Mueller unveiled the charges against Stone on Friday, accusing him of seeking information about hacked Democratic Party emails at the direction of an unidentified senior Trump campaign official and taking pains to keep his efforts a secret.

China insists that Meng hasn't done anything wrong and has threatened serious repercussions against Canada if she is not released. McCallum said the first date of her extradition hearing will be in March but the actual hearings will be some time after that.

Stone made no public statements as he arrived for the hearing in a black SUV. "It's called politics and they haven't criminalized it, at least not yet", Stone said Sunday on ABC's This Week.

On the Daily Show, Trevor Noah examined the Fox News response to Roger Stone's arrest.

Roger Stone pleaded not guilty Tuesday to charges he lied to Congress about his communications pertaining to the stolen Democratic emails published by WikiLeaks during the 2016 campaign.

Stone told Fox's Sean Hannity that he's being silenced because he supports Donald Trump.

In a Big Boy Radio show in August, Kim recalled a time when her daughter North asked her, " Mom, why are you famous ?" Kourtney , for the record, said she would stick by a cheating spouse for the sake of keeping a family intact.

The absence of a definitive answer to the collusion question, more than 20 months into Mueller's work, has given the president and his allies a wedge to attack the investigation. Stone, meanwhile, basks in all the media attention his "harrowing" ordeal got him and signs off with a special request to Trump: "Pardon me".

According to an indictment by Mueller's office last July, Russian conspirators used an online persona known as Guccifer 2.0 to communicate with WikiLeaks and ultimately transfer the stolen documents. "They're very detailed. And I think he's going to need a much better defense than the one you just heard".

Mueller said in court papers that Stone shared with multiple members of the Trump campaign team advance knowledge he had of a plan by WikiLeaks to release senior Democrats' emails. But "Trump is very anxious", a longtime Trump confidante told Vanity Fair's Gabriel Sherman, with another Republican close to Trump adding: "I could see Roger flipping pretty quickly".

"I'm broke from my legal battles", Stone said, holding the lapels of his fancy suit.
