FBI special counsel Robert Mueller will attempt to snare President Donald Trump on "some kind of process crime: perjury or obstruction of justice," former adviser and longtime GOP strategist Roger Stone said Sunday, according to The Hill.

"You cannot underestimate the deep animus of the two-party establishment to Donald Trump, and their resolve to remove him no matter what," Stone told host John Catsimatidis on "The Cats Roundtable" on 970 AM-N.Y.

Stone said reiterated that there has been a lack of evidence of collusion with the Trump campaign and Russia's meddling in the 2016 election, Mueller's probe might attempt to snag Trump on "something relating to either the firing of Gen. [Michael] Flynn or the firing of FBI Director [James] Comey./" 

President Trump reportedly removed Flynn as national security adviser soon after taking office because he lied to the FBI, a charge Flynn pleaded guilty to. Flynn is now cooperating with the Mueller's investigation.

President Trump also fired Comey as FBI director a few months later in 2017, a move that led to the appointment of Mueller as special counsel. Comey had been the head of the FBI and leading the investigation into Russia's meddling in the 2016 election and potential Trump campaign collusion.

Comey then testified to the Senate Intelligence Committee that President Trump had asked for Comey's "loyalty" and told the FBI director in another private meeting: "I hope you can let this go."

Stone reiterated a claim Sunday he had made to the House Intelligence Committee that he had not communicated directly with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, who had released hacked e-mails from the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton's campaign.

"I have never spoken to Assange," Stone told Catsimatidis on Sunday, per The Hill. "I never met with him. I did not speak to him in 2016. I had a limited exchange with the flak for Wikileaks."
