Roger Stone: 'Let Me Have My Day in Court'

("CBS This Morning")

Republican strategist Roger Stone Tuesday denied accusations that he was in contact with Russians during President Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign, a day after his name was mentioned 19 times during the House Intelligence Committee's hearings with FBI Director James Comey and National Security Agency Director Mike Rogers.

"I've said that repeatedly," Stone told the "CBS This Morning" program, when he was asked if he was on the program to say he'd had no contact or was trying to collude with Russians to defeat Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. "Let me have my day in court."

Stone was noncommittal when asked about former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, former NSA Director Michael Flynn, and former Trump adviser Carter Page.

"Paul Manafort has been a friend of mine for a long time," said Stone. "He was an usher in my wedding. I don't know Gen. Flynn, but I would give him the benefit of the doubt. Carter Page, I've never heard of this guy."

Stone is under scrutiny by the FBI and the Senate after former Clinton campaign manager John Podesta accused the Trump associate of having advance knowledge that WikiLeaks was planning to release thousands of emails from his account.

The intelligence community has concluded Russia was behind the Podesta leaks.

The Senate Intelligence Committee has also asked Stone to preserve any Russian-related documents he might have as part of its investigation into the country's involvement in the 2016 election, and Stone said Tuesday he's complying.
