Clinton campaign chief has closed-door talk with House panel

Ex-Clinton campaign chair Podesta meets with lawmakers investigating Russia

Roger Stone, a President Trump loyalist, is set to testify before the House Intelligence Committee as part of its Russian Federation election meddling probe in late July, according to a report.

In a statement, Roger Stone's lawyer said the political operative has been "much maligned by innuendo and misinformation" regarding the investigations into possible collusion between Trump's campaign and Russian Federation. He'll finally get the chance on July 24 during a closed hearing in front of the House Intelligence Committee.

Stone is facing allegations he had prior knowledge of the WikiLeaks dump of private emails stolen from former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's campaign chairman, John Podesta.

The former Trump campaign advisor likely gave into the committee's demand because it grilled Podesta on Tuesday.

Mr. Podesta's personal email account and the Democratic National Committee servers were hacked in the final months of the 2016 campaign and messages subsequently published on WikiLeaks.

Donald Trump s'affiche sur une fausse une du Time dans ses golfs
Plusieurs couvertures du célèbre hebdomadaire sont affichés dans des établissements du président des Etats-Unis. C'était faux, il n'avait été en couverture de " Time " qu'une seule fois avant 2016 - en juillet 1989.

"I think they were trying to make the best judgments they could on behalf of the American people", he said of the Obama team.

"Correct", Stone said. But, he said his tweet made no mention of Podesta's emails. "I may not be able to sue a member of Congress, but I sure as hell can sue the f-- out of Podesta".

Till April 2016, just months before the U.S. election, enormous damage had been done to the DNC computers, Russian Federation had successfully breached two Democratic party computer systems: That of the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee. Parscale did not immediately respond to CNN request for comment Tuesday but previously told CNN on June 16 that he had not been contacted by any investigators - either federal or Congressional. According to that same statement, Stone is reportedly looking forward to making his testimony to the committee.

He talked in March about being in touch with "Guccifer 2.0" - the hacker persona that US intelligence officials say is a Russian front for channeling stolen documents but who Stone insists is not a Moscow asset - and boasted during the campaign about his contact with WikiLeaks.
