URGENT – Trump associate Roger Stone has been found guilty

(CNN) — Longtime Trump associate Roger Stone has been found guilty on at least one charge in a case that has shed new light on then-candidate Donald Trump’s anticipation of the release of stolen Democratic emails in 2016. The verdict is still being read. Stone faced five counts of lying to Congress, one of witness tampering, and one of obstructing a Congressional committee proceeding. The verdict marks a stunning conclusion to one of the highest profile prosecutions to emerge from special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation — a case that began with one of Trump’s most vocal supporters arrested during a pre-dawn raid as the special counsel’s investigation wound down, and that since then has gradually revealed new information about the Trump campaign’s positive reception to foreign interference in the 2016 election.
