They did not push for Stone to be jailed or for Robinson to impose a gag order in the case.
He entered a not guilty plea in a Washington court on Tuesday, local time. A status hearing was scheduled for February 1.
The charges against Stone centre on allegations that he lied to Congress about his pursuit of information on stolen emails released by Wikileaks with the apparent aim of damaging presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's campaign. Mueller has accused 12 Russian intelligence officers of hacking those emails, and it's the consensus of the US intelligence community that those Russians "relayed material it acquired from the DNC and senior Democratic officials to WikiLeaks".
The indictment did not indicate whether Stone knew that Russians had stolen the emails by hacking into computers used by Clinton's senior campaign adviser John Podesta and the Democratic National Committee. Instead, it accuses him of witness tampering, obstruction, and false statements about his interactions related to WikiLeaks.Читайте также: Tennis pros react to Naomi Osaka winning the Australian Open
The brief court appearance was the first in Washington for Stone, 66, since his arrest and indictment last week.
Then, led by CNN's Jake Tapper and seventeen cameramen and sound engineers, the FBI Agents shackled Stone and carried him out to a waiting armored vehicle, pausing only to strike a few heroic poses for the cameras before driving Stone to a military air transport where he was locked in a cage last used for Hannibal Lecter in Silence of the Lambs. Corsi's attorney Larry Klayman was present in the courtroom for Stone's arraignment.
But one senior federal law enforcement source told Fox News that the operation was "standard" for a home arrest. Referencing the exclusive footage filmed during his arrest at the hands of unpaid Federal Bureau of Investigation agents on Friday, the host added: "The man is 66-years-old, frail, barely able to post shirtless photos of his jacked body".
He became a focus of the investigation after working on the Trump campaign, which he left early on in August 2015. Mueller is the single-most powerful person in America, and yet nobody voted for him. Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort was indicted by a grand jury on multiple charges. The congressman minimized the charges Stone is facing and referred to the potential crimes as "process fouls".
He also said the information in the indictment was accurate and that he would testify against Stone.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
