Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III asked the House Intelligence Committee on Friday for an official transcript of Trump adviser Roger Stone’s testimony, according to people familiar with the request, a sign that prosecutors could be moving to charge him with a crime.

It is the first time Mueller has formally asked the committee to turn over material the panel has gathered in its investigation of Russian interference of the 2016 campaign, according to the people

Securing an official transcript from the committee would be a necessary step before pursuing an indictment that Stone allegedly lied to lawmakers, legal experts said.
Roger Stone, well not a surprise
Things are getting interesting

For our crowd of this is a nothingburger, well link to his legal defence fund.
Appears that burger is getting heavier with Felonies laid, newer investigations. 17 the public has an idea of.

Thing is its the ones we know nothing of

Jan/Feb will be a bad month for some.

Everyone else is lying to the House Intelligence Committee, so why not. The difference here is, Stone is in the Trump orbit and is not immune like the others.

Roger could be a fountain of information. He is worth 10-14 M. Ya think he will spend a couple of million on lawyers. Who he has without doubt hired, unless he is stupid, and I doubt he is, hired lawyers and now wants you to donate to his legal defence fund

Im asking you what you think Stone is guilty of. If you think he is guilty of nothing, what do you think he knows?

Stone has been in the uncomfortable position of a man straddling a work bench who sees his testicles laying within a vice that has not yet been cranked shut. He fears that sooner or later the handle will be turned.

And now it is soon to happen with Robert Mueller doing the honors.

Could not happen to a more deserving fellow.

Well...If we aren't seeing the recovery of Roger Stone from MAGA Sex Cult Leader to an honorable man who tells the truth, I think our justice system might be truly broken, but it seems with his other lawsuit he has already been taking these steps. Let's see how much trolling he still has in him, or if he knows it's over.

The thing about Stone is....I'm not entirely sure he'd be uncomfortable in such a position. If rumors are to be believed...

Wow. You are a little more angry than usual. Perhaps you should calm down. You seem to think Stone has something to add to the investigation. What do you think that is? And it is you who is linking Stone with felonies. If thats not what you meant than perhaps you should be more clear in your posts.

Will be interesting to see what PR game he employs. Attacks Mueller?? who knows, could be leveraging for a really good deal??

What is it you think Stone has done to deserve that sort of treatment? Or do you just enjoy the prospect of people being tortured.

Those efforts have failed spectacularly.

A deal? A deal for what? Are you now suggesting he is guilty of some crime after whining a moment ago about how you never suggested such a thing? You seem not only angry, but confused.

Yes, I just enjoy the prospect of seeing a low life bottom feeding scum sucking dog like Stone being tortured and destroyed. :doh:roll:

Besides, I want to see him doing his Nostradamus act predicting the future. Maybe he can give us winning lottery numbers or something useful?

Why are you being sooo whiny??? Seriously, why do you defend all these corrupt individuals who aren't looking out for you or your best interests.

Roger Stone was frequently involved with Wikileaks and frequently involved with Trump Jr who was tracking down the emails. If Stone got the emails from Wikileaks, that is illegal. If Stone is an agent of a foreign power, that is illegal. If Stone was an unregistered lobbyist for a foreign power while working for the Trump campaign (which is what it seems he was doing despite lying about it) that is ILLEGAL!!!!!!!

Get it?

Good, I hope the nail Stone to the wall...been a long time coming.
Stone has a Nixon tattoo on his back, he's the last person that would ever flip..but it's always a slim possibility.

So many questions Fletch, it's as though you have absolutely no idea what's going on, but act like you're curious just the same.

Stone appears to be lying to, and obstructing, the Mueller investigation that is looking into exactly happened with Russian hacking of the DNC and the timing of the release of those emails.
There is a ton of evidence that Stone knows about this, and if prosecutors were able to catch him lying about is knowledge of these matters to the United States, they will indict him.

False statements and obstruction both serve critical roles in empowering prosecutors to go after white collar conspiracies, where getting together and lying about what happened, is often all they need to do to cover up their crimes. If they decide the exposure of that information would be worse than taking false statment/obstruction charges, they may stick with the illegal cover up as their best option. If they instead cooperate, and don't act like a stupid right wing nutter like Flynn, they might get a slap on the wrist.
In this way, *some* justice is served either way.

Obviously the United States would prefer Stone to come clean and tell us what happened. If he refuses criminally, then he'll be indicted.
There are plenty of ways he could not answer, without lying...but the vast majority of criminals just can't help themselves. Was Stone the exception? It's possible, we shall see.

NOt sure why you chose to answer a question I posed then drone on without answering it. Again, what is it you think Stone has done? Be specific.
