Longtime Trump associate Roger Stone says the President's lawyers 'are giving him bad advice'
Daily News December 8, 2017
Roger Stone, a political operative and longtime confidant of President Trump, said Monday night that the President's lawyers "are not serving him well."
"I don't think the President is getting good legal advice," Stone told the Daily News in reference to special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation.
The flamboyant Beltway insider pointed to a tweet from Trump's account Saturday about disgraced national security adviser Michael Flynn — who on Friday copped to lying about his talks with Russia's ambassador to the U.S.
"I had to fire General Flynn because he lied to the Vice President and the FBI. He has pled guilty to those lies. It is a shame because his actions during the transition were lawful. There was nothing to hide!" the @realDonaldTrump tweet said.
That tweet appeared to suggest Trump was aware when the White House dismissed Flynn on Feb. 13 that the national security adviser had lied to the FBI. FBI Director James Comey was fired in May, and testified to Congress that Trump asked him to go easy on Flynn.
On Sunday, Trump lawyer John Dowd told ABC News that he was actually responsible for the "sloppy" post.
