Senators Ask Trump Adviser to Preserve Any Russia-Related Documents

Source: The New York Times

Roger J. Stone Jr., an informal adviser to President Trump, has been asked by the Senate Intelligence Committee to preserve any records he may have in connection to a broader inquiry into Russian attempts to interfere with United States elections.

The letter sent to Mr. Stone, a copy of which was obtained by The New York Times, represents the first public indication of the scope of the committee’s inquiry, and possible connections to Mr. Trump’s campaign.

The Senate committee asked Mr. Stone, who is also under scrutiny from other federal investigators, to “preserve and retain all hard copies and electronically stored information as specified below in furtherance of the committee’s ongoing investigation into Russian actions targeting the 2016 U.S. elections and democratic processes globally.”

Mr. Stone confirmed the existence of the letter, which was dated Feb. 17. However, he said he had received it only on Friday, by email. Mr. Stone has acknowledged trading messages over Twitter with Guccifer 2.0, the online persona that officials believe was actually Russian intelligence officers.

9. Yep. Not just the White House being ordered to preserve documents, Stone put on notice too.

Who is Roger Stone, the Long-Time R Dirty-Trickster....

Stone was employed by the Trump campaign, according to his own tweeting. He signed a non-disclosure that he said was void because the Trump entity was not legally constituted. These aren't the bright criminals.

2. "Mr. Stone confirmed the existence of the letter, which was dated Feb. 17.........

It either got lost in the mail or his dog ate it.

10. Put on notice that felony obstruction of justice jeopardy begins as of now!

That's how an attorney would read "being asked" in a newspaper.










Looks like Roger plans to plead batshit crazy.

7. That's exactly what I thought

"asked by the Senate Intelligence Committee to preserve any records" sounds like code for: Hurry up and shred stuff before we demand the records.

11. EXACTLY!!!!

Those letters "asking" or "ordering" to preserve documents & digital info related to something basically amounts to nothing more than a HEADS UP. I guess it lays the ground work if they catch them hiding something in the future but one would think people doing what these guys did would cover their tracks in terms a "paper/digital trail". We will see.
