“Former Donald Trump adviser Roger Stone rejected claims he had any involvement with Russian intelligence officials during or after the 2016 presidential campaign and said he welcomed a “fair, unbiased investigation” to clear his name.

“Categorically, positively not,” he said when asked Thursday on TODAY whether he had any regular dealings with Russians officials.

The New York Times named Stone as one of several Trump advisers under investigation for possible interaction with the Russians during the election campaign.

Stone told TODAY he has never been contacted by the FBI or any other law enforcement agency about a possible probe, including the investigation into Russia’s electronic hacking into the Democratic National Committee as a way to disrupt the presidential election.

“They’d be pretty bored if they wanted to look at my e-mails or transmissions because they won’t find anything of this nature. I have no Russian clients. I’ve never been in touch with anyone in Russia,” said Stone, who said he welcomed an inquiry into the matter.

“I would like any fair, unbiased investigation so that we can clear the air on this once and for all,” he said.

The report is just one of the latest controversies that have surfaced in connection with the resignation of Michael Flynn as national security adviser because of his conversations with Russian leaders back in December, before Trump took office.”*

In 2002 Cenk Uygur launched an online program called "The Young Turks," which he billed as the first video news show on the Internet. In December 2011 Uygur took the program, with his name added to the title to differentiate it from the online show, to television on Current TV. The nightly show features guests who offer their opinions on topics from the worlds of politics and pop culture. Although Uygur was born in Turkey, the show's title is not related to his nationality. It refers to a phrase used to describe someone who is an insurgent or radical in a political party who advocates for changes in the group.


  1. A picture is starting to emerge for me. Stone probably has a longstanding relationship with Putin and other Russian officials. Stone convinced Trump to run for president telling him that he could win and convincing him that he could make a lot of money through underhanded deals with Russia. I'm sure Stone stands to make a lot of money too with Trump in office. There must be a money trail.

  2. If trump denies knowing Roger Stone than Stone must have been doing some highly illegal things that Trump doesn't want to get caught with. It is the only reason to deny knowing Stone. The FBI and CIA as well as the NSA should start looking into Stone since Trump has won primaries.
