Roger Stone: ‘Disgusted’ judge jails Trump ally

What was Stone convicted of?

Stone was found guilty of lying to the House Intelligence Committee about his attempts to contact Wikileaks, the website that released damaging emails about Mr Trump’s 2016 Democratic election rival Hillary Clinton.

US intelligence officials have concluded the messages were stolen by Russian hackers.

When Stone lied to the House Intelligence Committee about his attempts to contact Wikileaks what did his lie consist of? Did he deny attempts to contact Wikileaks, or did he lie about having made contacts for which there was in fact no evidence?

When Wikileaks released damaging emails about Hillary Clinton what was in the emails? Was the information released in fact all true? Were these emails from the DNC documenting the dishonest subversion of the campaigns of Clinton opponents? Did the DNC at first repeatedly insist the emails included forgeries? Were forgeries ever found?

Which US intelligence officials concluded the Wikileaks DNC messages were stolen by Russians? Did other US intelligence officials issue contradictory statements? Did US intelligence agencies ever examine the servers? What did Julian Assange consistently say about the source of the emails?
