Roger Stone says he's 'probably' the unnamed person in Mueller indictment

Stone told CNN's Chris Cuomo that he hadn't had the chance to read the indictment before he made his earlier statements.

The 29-page indictment says the conspirators, posing as Guccifer 2.0, wrote, "thank u for writing back.do u find anyt [h] ing interesting in the docs i posted?"

"I think I probably am the person referred to", Stone said Friday evening.

On July 27, 2016, Donald Trump denied Russian Federation was the likely culprit in the email hacks, but also announced, "Russia, if you're listening, I hope you're able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing".

"Please tell me if i can help u anyhow...it would be a great pleasure to me, '" the message said.

The thefts and disclosures of Democratic emails were part of a Kremlin-authorized attack targeting the race and Mrs. Clinton's campaign in particular, according to USA officials.

"As Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said today: 'There is no allegation in this indictment that Americans knew that they were corresponding with Russians".

CNN has previously reported that Stone communicated in August 2016 with Guccifer 2.0, the self-proclaimed hacker who took responsibility for breaching the Democratic National Committee and releasing its emails earlier that summer. "This exchange is entirely public and provides no evidence of collaboration or collusion with Guccifer 2.0 or anyone else in the alleged hacking of the DNC emails, as well as taking place many weeks after the events described in today's indictment". An unnamed congressional candidate was also said to have asked for and received stolen information.

The dates and content of the messages described in the indictment between the US person in regular contact with senior members of Trump's presidential campaign and Guccifer 2.0 match verbatim two screenshots Stone published on his website in March of 2017 of the direct message exchange he had with Guccifer 2.0 on Twitter in 2016. "I was not in regular contact with campaign officials", Stone said.

Longtime Trump associate Roger Stone said he's likely the unnamed individual in the Justice Department's election hacking indictment who communicated with the persona "Guccifer 2.0".

Still, Rosenstein said there's now no allegation that any American committed a crime. "On or about July 22, 2016, Organization 1 released over 20,000 emails and other documents stolen from the DNC network by the [Russians]". "The conspirators created fictitious online personas, including DC leaks and Guccifer 2.0".
