The federal special counsel's indictment of Roger Stone, a longtime associate of President Donald Trump, in the Russia probe are unrelated to the president or the White House, Trump's press secretary said Friday.
"This has nothing to do with the president and certainly nothing to do with the White House. This is something that has to do solely with that individual, not something that affects us in this building," White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said in an interview with CNN. "The president did nothing wrong."
"Roger Stone is somebody who has been a consultant for dozens of Republican presidents and candidates and members of Congress," she said. "Conversations between those individuals have nothing to do with the fact of what the charges are about. That's about whether or not he made false statements. We'll let the courts make the decision."
