Republican political operative Roger Stone could testify before Congress about Russian engagement in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
According to a Mic report, an April 28 letter from Senate Select Committee on Intelligence chairman Richard Burr and ranking member Mark Warner said they welcome Stone’s “willingness to cooperate with the Committee as we undertake our bipartisan investigation of Russian attempts to influence the 2016 presidential election.”
“I am anxious to rebut allegations that I had any improper or nefarious contact with any agent of the Russia State based on facts, not misleading and salacious headlines,” Stone said back in March when House Intelligence Committee ranking member Adam Schiff questioned FBI Director James Comey about Stone’s involvement with alleged Russian interference.
The letter requests that Stone be prepared for a “closed interview with designated Committee staff” and prior the interview give details and include a list of meetings he had with “any Russian official or representative of Russian business interests which took place between June 16, 2015, and January 20, 2017.”
Additionally, a list of meetings between “any individual affiliated with the Trump campaign” and the Russians at that time was asked for by lawmakers.
“I intend to comply with their request for documents,” Stone told Mic.
