Trump sdvisor Roger Stone was arrested Friday morning, and charged with 7 counts.

Daily Caller reports

Prosecutors charged Stone, 66, with seven counts, including five for making false statements to Congress, one for witness tampering, and one for obstruction of a government proceeding.

Notably, Stone is not accused of taking part in collusion with the Russian government or of taking part in the theft of emails stolen from Democrats. He will appear in federal court Friday morning for his first hearing.

The charges center on Stone’s discussions with associates and Trump campaign officials about WikiLeaks, the group founded by Julian Assange that released Democrats’ emails during the 2016 presidential campaign.

The indictment accuses Stone of lying to the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) during a Sept. 27, 2017 hearing about his discussions about WikiLeaks and Assange, neither of which are named in the indictment.
