Prosecutors: Trump advisor Stone 'straight up lied'

The prosecution in the trial of Roger Stone on Wednesday painted President Donald Trump’s longtime adviser as a liar in a criminal case stemming from former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe that detailed Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. election.

Prosecutors: Trump advisor Stone 'straight up lied'

Prosecutors in the trial of Roger Stone Wednesday said the longtime advisor to President Donald Trump "straight up lied" to Congress.

The 67-year-old veteran Republican political operative - a self-described “dirty trickster” - has pleaded not guilty to obstructing justice, witness tampering and lying to the U.S. House of Representatives Intelligence Committee.

The federal trial in Washington had gotten off to a rocky start Tuesday, with court dismissed early after Stone complained of food poisoning.

Opening statements began Wednesday.

The charges against Stone sprang from Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russian interference in the 2016 election, including hacked emails embarrassing to Hillary Clinton's campaign published by WikiLeaks.

Stone is accused of telling lawmakers he had no emails from WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, when prosecutors said Stone had "many, many" emails from Assange and regularly updated the highest ranks of the Trump campaign, including Steve Bannon, on information from WikiLeaks.

The jury will hear testimony from Bannon, a former Trump advisor, and from Rick Gates - Trump's former deputy campaign chairman.
