How Roger Stone Connects Donald Trump to Richard NixonBreaking News

When Roger Stone was arrested on Friday morning on charges connected to Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation, the news came in the wake of long speculation. Reports emerged months ago that Stone’s finances and associateswere the subject of investigation by the Special Counsel’s team. In May of last year, he even solicited funds for his legal defense.
But the story of how Roger Stone got to this point takes place over decades, not months.
Stone’s history with Trump is a long one, and his Trump boosterism was in keeping with a political career going back nearly half a century. Though he had volunteered for the 1964 Barry Goldwater campaign, it was Richard Nixon’s reelection campaign that launched his career. And he is no stranger to questions about his involvement in possible political wrongdoing, his actions having been examined by the Senate Watergate Committee.
