Schiff: Roger Stone 'Not Willing' to Answer Some Questions in Russia Probe

(MSNBC's "Morning Joe")

Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif. said that Roger Stone was "not willing" to answer questions about an intermediary that was a go-between for Stone and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, Schiff said Wednesday on MSNBC's "Morning Joe."

Stone, an associate of President Donald Trump, was questioned before the White House intelligence committee.

Stone's connection to WikiLeaks is "of great interest to our committee," said Schiff, the ranking Democrat in the House of Representatives.

"We'll have to subpoena him unless he changes his mind and decides that, as he promised, he would answer every question. Obviously, we want to know whether that intermediary was in contact with other people in the Trump campaign, since WikiLeaks, was obviously doing the work of a Russian propaganda operation," Schiff said.

The congressman said that Facebook's CEO Mark Zuckerberg and its technology officers have been giving information to the committee about Russians advertising on Facebook.

Schiff said that the committee has been briefed on the Russian ads, and they are clearly seeking to provide an advantage to one campaign.

"They're promoting an anti-immigrant message or an anti-Muslim message, messages that dovetail nicely with what the Trump campaign was trying to push."

Facebook said Sept. 21 that it would release the ads to congressional investigators.
