    Welcome to Hatuey's series of public statements that don't age well.

    It's 'Painfully Obvious' Trump Will Be Charged by Mueller, Says President's Ally Roger Stone

    Meanwhile, our stable genius of a president has been tweeting away:

    The investigation did not establish that the contacts described in Volume
    I, Section IV, supra, amounted to an agreement to commit any substantive violation of federal
    criminal law—including foreign-influence and campaign-finance laws, both of which are
    discussed further below. The Office therefore did not charge any individual associated with the
    Trump Campaign with conspiracy to commit a federal offense arising from Russia contacts, either
    under a specific statute or under Section 371’s offenses clause.

    yep stone like mueller found no evidence between the trump campaign and russia.

    No collusion! No collusion! Okay collusion but collusion isnt in the US Code.

    Conspiracy sure is in there though.
    Mueller didn't find any evidence of collusion, but Stone was convicted for lying about his back door efforts to collude. Kind of like how there can be no evidence of wife beating, but one can still be put in jail if she accidentally breaks her arm and falls on the doorknob all within an hour.

    Hahahahahha.

    Npe. The court said he lied about reaching out to Wikileaks.
    In other words-- what Mueller found continues to be true-- No collusion.

    Roger Stone says he quit, Trump camp says it fired him - CNNPolitics
    August 10, 2015 ~ By MJ Lee and Dana Bash
    Donald Trump's campaign said Saturday it has fired top political adviser Roger Stone -- who promptly denied being let go and insisted he had quit.
    Stone's disassociation from the Trump operation highlights the campaign's seeming lack of veteran political advisers, even as the 2016 season is ramping up in earnest.
    That dog wont hunt...

    And they presented phone records and testimony suggesting that Trump didn't tell the truth in written answers to Special Counsel Robert Mueller, when Trump said he didn't remember ever discussing WikiLeaks with Stone.

    "Trump was in the conspiratorial loop," said Glenn Kirschner, a former federal prosecutor and NBC News legal analyst who watched the trial. "He was in the hard collusion loop by virtue of him having phone calls in real time with Roger Stone while these email dumps were in progress."

    Phone records introduced as evidence in the trial show Stone called Trump on the very day in June 2016 that the world learned that the Democratic National Committee had been hacked by the Russians. The records show that Trump spoke to Stone at key moments during the summer of 2016 as Stone was single-mindedly seeking access to the stolen emails from Julian Assange, the WikiLeaks founder. Steve Bannon, who led the Trump campaign, testified that Stone was considered the "access point" to WikiLeaks.

    Trump'''s honesty was on trial in the Roger Stone case. The verdict was harsh.

    Roger Stone was not a member of the President's administration.
    Stone officially left the Trump campaign on August 8, 2015 at the campaign's request.
