After saying that he did not believe he was the unnamed person mentioned in the indictment of 12 Russian officers in the 2016 hacking of the Democratic National Committee, former Trump campaign adviser Roger Stone acknowledged later the same day that he “probably” is that unnamed person.

Friday night on CNN’s “Cuomo Prime Time”, Stone admitted that he now thinks he is the person in the filing released earlier Friday by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, stating he had not had the chance to read the indictment before he made his earlier statement.

The indictment says, “The conspirators, posing as Guccifer 2.0, wrote to a person who was in regular contact with senior members of the presidential campaign of Donald J. Trump”. Guccifer 2.0 was an online persona allegedly used by the Russian officers.

So, Stone who was ‘probably’ in contact with Guccifer 2.0 was also in contact with senior members of the presidential campaign.  But there was no collusion?  Riiiight.
