Roger Stone to face congressional Russia investigators Tuesday

President Donald Trump's longtime confidante Roger Stone will accuse lawmakers of making "falsehoods, misstatements, and misimpressions" with allegations of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials during his appearance before a congressional panel on Tuesday.

Stone, a one-time adviser to Trump, issued a combative opening statement Monday evening ahead of his highly anticipated appearance before the House intelligence committee Tuesday morning in a closed session.

And it comes after Stone battled with the committee when he demanded a public hearing, which lawmakers rejected, and as the members demanded he produce public records about his contacts with Russians, which sources said he did not do.

In his statement, Stone attacks the very lawmakers who will be questioning him, calling out the statements of three Democrats on the panel, including ranking member Adam Schiff of California, underscoring how contentious the session is likely to be.
