Roger Stone on Monday preemptively denied as "the epitome of fake news" any upcoming reports he allegedly told Donald Trump in 2016 "what exactly would be in the Wikileaks disclosures and when they would be disclosed."
In an Instagram video, the longtime GOP strategist and operative alleges The New Yorker's Ronan Farrow is working on the piece based on claims from an unnamed source.
He also says The New York Times and The Washington Post have been pursuing the claim.
"Somebody has been pushing a fake news story, first with The New York Times, then The Washington Post and now with Ronan Farrow of The New Yorker," Stone claims in the video. "Someone is saying that they overheard a conversation in which I told Donald Trump in October of 2016 what exactly would be in the WikiLeaks disclosures and when they would be disclosed."
"This is categorically false," he says. "This is exactly the epitome of fake news. Let whoever is pushing this false narrative come forward and say, for the record, with their name on it. They won't, because it is false."
At the same time, CNN reporter Marshall Cohen tweeted an email Stone supposedly sent to supporters claiming special counsel Robert Mueller is set to indict him as part of the ongoing investigation into ties between the Trump campaign and Russia — declaring "I am being targeted . . . because the 'deep state' liberals want to silence me and pressure me to testify against my good friend Donald J. Trump."
Stone has repeatedly denied he did anything wrong.
