Roger Stone Says Manafort Expects to Be Indicted

Updated on

Roger Stone, a longtime ally and informal campaign adviser to President Donald Trump, said Tuesday that he expects former campaign manager Paul Manafort to be indicted.

"His attorneys told my attorneys he expects to be indicted,” Stone told reporters after a closed-door meeting with the House Intelligence Committee, which is probing Russian meddling in the U.S. election. Stone added that he didn’t know what charges Manafort might be facing and that he hasn’t been contacted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team.
