Looks Like Robert Mueller Could Be Getting Ready to Charge Roger Stone: Washington Post

For the first time ever Special Counsel Robert Mueller has asked the House Intelligence Committee for a transcript. And that transcript is of testimony given by former Trump advisor and longtime Trump BFF Roger Stone, as the Washington Post reports.

The Post calls it "a sign that prosecutors could be moving to charge him with a crime."

"The move suggests that the special counsel is moving to finalize his months-long investigation of Stone — a key part of Mueller’s inquiry into whether anyone in President Trump’s orbit coordinated with the Russians."

Roger Stone "has given conflicting accounts about what prompted him to accurately predict during the 2016 race that WikiLeaks was going to unleash material that would hurt Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton."

Legal experts say Mueller may be getting ready to charge Stone.

“That suggests prosecutors are getting ready to bring a charge,” former federal prosecutor Glenn Kirschner told the Post. “Prosecutors can’t bring a charge without an original certified copy of the transcript that shows the witness lied.”
