WASHINGTON, D.C. - President Trump’s former republican campaign adviser Roger Stone, 66, pleaded not guilty this morning to seven counts in federal court, including making false statements, witness tampering and obstruction of justice. Special counsel Robert Mueller, 74, and the US attorney for the District of Columbia have accused Stone of making false statements to congressional investigators about his communications regarding WikiLeaks' publication of stolen emails intended to destroy Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign in 2016. After the hearing, he was instructed to report to the U.S. Marshal’s office to fulfill his booking. A status hearing is scheduled for Friday. Stone could face up to 24 to 30 months in prison under federal sentencing guidelines if convicted.
