Trump says Roger Stone didn't work for him 'anywhere near election'

President Donald Trump lashed out at the media again on Twitter Saturday night after a longtime ally's indictment, saying that "Roger Stone didn't even work for me anywhere near the Election!"

Special counsel Robert Mueller has charged longtime Trump adviser Stone with attempting to undermine government investigations by lying about his links between Trump's campaign and WikiLeaks.

Stone's arrest could carry serious implications for Trump, with the prosecutor describing how his campaign pursued information about hacked emails concerning Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election.

Stone told Fox News he will plead not guilty and added that several aspects of the indictment are "simply not true." In a separate interview with CNN, Stone said he's never been in touch with Trump about a possible pardon.
