Roger Stone appears in federal court in D.C.—live updates

/ CBS News

Former Trump campaign adviser Roger Stone is appearing in federal court in D.C. for his arraignment Tuesday, after a grand jury handed down seven charges related to obstructing justice and lying to Congress. Stone, who is out on $250,000 bail, has utilized his freedom the last few days to make the circuit of news talk shows and proclaim his innocence. He was arrested at his home in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, early Friday morning.

"I'm going to tell the truth no matter what," Stone told CBS News in an interview Sunday. "I have no intention of not telling truth. I have never not told the truth. Claims that I was less than truthful before the House Intelligence Committee will be disproven."

Stone is the sixth associate of the president's to be charged in connection with special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian meddling. The White House insists the charges leveled against Stone have nothing to do with the White House or Mr. Trump.

"The president did nothing wrong," insisted White House press secretary Sarah Sanders in a White House press briefing Monday.

Will Roger Stone cooperate with the Russia investigation?

Stone hasn't ruled out the possibility of cooperating with Mueller.

The indictment leveled against Stone alleges he spoke to "senior Trump campaign officials" about WikiLeaks' "future releases" of information revealing stolen Democratic Party emails during the 2016 presidential election.

Stone makes his appearance at 11 a.m. He has said he will plead not guilty to the charges.
