Roger Stone responds to Comey hearing, denies claims of Russian Federation collusion

The U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee has scheduled a second public hearing on March 30 connected with its investigation into alleged Russian interference during last year's presidential election.

Rhetorically, Schiff said: "Is it coincidence that Roger Stone predicted that John Podesta would be a victim of a Russian hack and have his private emails published, and did so even before Mr Podesta himself was fully aware that his private emails would be exposed?"

Among the topics covered at Monday's House Intelligence Committee hearing with FBI Director Jame Comey were several people who had alleged connections to Russian Federation and were also either allies of Trump or members of his campaign at one time.

Stone said on a Monday tweet that it would only be "fair" if he could respond to allegations of collusion with Russian Federation during the hearing.

"It's the new McCarthyism, and it's mudslinging", Stone said on SiriusXM radio's "The Wilkow Majority".

Stone said it was not known at the time that the hacker Guccifer was involved with the Russians and that his conversation with the hacker was "benign".

"I had no contacts with Russians". The Senate Intelligence Committee notified Stone on Friday that he would be questioned as well, the New York Times reported. I'm not gonna stop fighting for Donald Trump, nor are they going to silence me.

Before the November presidential election, Stone told The Guardian that a mutual friend he shares with Assange provided him with information about the organization's release of emails related to Clinton. I am anxious to go to the committee.

The Senate Intelligence Committee recently asked Stone to preserve any communications that would be beneficial in the panel's investigation into Russian tampering in the US election.

The Senate Intelligence Committee reportedly asked Stone in a letter dated February 17 to preserve any information related to its probe on Russia's interference in the United States presidential election.
