Special counsel Robert Mueller's prosecutors are using emails and text messages from longtime President Donald Trump ally and adviser Roger Stone as evidence for a case related to him, CNN reported.

The Mueller team has been talking to a number of Stone's associates as investigators look into whether he was involved in Russian efforts to steal and disseminate damaging information about Democrats ahead of the 2016 election, CNN reported.

According to the news outlet, which cited unnamed sources, witnesses have been presented with records of Stone's emails and text messages — though Stone himself has not provided them to Mueller's team or congressional committees.

The Mueller team is mostly focused on Stone's activities in 2016, when he traded messages with the hacker Guccifer 2.0 and publicly boasted about his communications with WikiLeaks, CNN reported.

"I have always acknowledged playing hard ball politics but have also said in my books and in the Netflix documentary that my campaign tactics do not include breaking the law," Stone said in a statement to CNN. "This would not be the first time the special counsel has willfully misled the grand jury."

Stone has yet to be contacted by the Mueller team.

"Roger has carefully crafted his public image and sometimes that, I think, doesn't work in his favor," said Kristin Davis, a Stone friend who has worked on and off with him for 10 years and recently testified before the grand jury. "He's a victim of his own reputation."

Davis, known as the "Manhattan Madam" for her former role as the head of a prostitution ring, is among nearly a dozen Stone associates who have been contacted by Mueller's team, CNN reported; others include aides who worked with Stone on previous political campaigns, including Davis, Andrew Miller, New York political activist and comedian Randy Credico and Stone associate Michael Caputo.
