Political operative Roger Stone thinks lawyers for President Donald Trump are giving him bad advice.

In remarks to the New York Daily News earlier this week, Stone, a Trump confidant, questioned the legal guidance to the president related to special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation.

"I don't think the President is getting good legal advice," Stone told the Daily News, singling out a troublesome tweet from Trump's account about Michael Flynn, who's admitted guilt to lying to the FBI about his talks with Russia's ambassador to the United States.

Trump's personal lawyer, John Dowd, took responsibility last Sunday for the post.

"That tweet was an error, in my opinion," Stone told the Daily News. "I now see that Mr. Dowd said the tweet came from him. That seems odd."

"His lawyers are giving him bad advice," he added.

Stone contends that Trump doesn't understand the "threat" the Mueller probe poses.

"I think he needs more aggressive legal advisers — and I think he needs to realize the deep-seated enmity for him from the political establishment," Stone told the Daily News. "It doesn't matter how well the stock market is doing. It doesn't matter how low the unemployment numbers are."
