A federal jury in Washington has found Donald Trump associate Roger Stone guilty on all seven counts he was charged with including lying to Congress. From The New York Times:
“Mr. Stone, 67, was charged with lying to the House Intelligence Committee, trying to block the testimony of another potential witness and concealing reams of evidence from investigators. Prosecutors claimed he tried to thwart the committee’s work because the truth would have “looked terrible” for both the president and his campaign. In all, he faced seven felony charges and was found guilty on all counts.“
According to the Times, in the weeks leading up to the 2016 election, Stone tried to get his hands on emails that were stolen from the Democratic National Committee, emails that Donald Trump and his campaign desperately wanted.
Predictably, Trump is weighing in.
