House panel threatens to subpoena Roger Stone over Assange contact
Josh Delk, The Hill, Oct 12 2017

The House Intelligence Committee is warning Trump associate Roger Stone: turn over your contacts to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange or be subpoenaed. CNN reported Thursday that a subpoena of Stone by the House Intelligence Committee could come on Friday. Stone, a former campaign adviser to Pres Trump, testified before the committee last month in a three-hour-long session, during which he refused to provide the committee with the name of his shared contact with Assange. Rep Adam Schiff, the ranking member on the committee, confirmed to CNN that the committee had agreed to subpoena Stone if he does not willingly come forward with the information before Friday. Rep Mike Conaway, who is leading the investigation, also confirmed that the committee would wait until Friday to issue the order. He told CNN:

We’ll give it until tomorrow. We’ll take the next steps. Hope we don’t have to.

Demagogs have been keen to press Stone on his communications with Assange and the Russian online persona Guccifer 2.0, as well as a tweet that suggested he had advance knowledge of the hack of 2016 Demagog presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta. Stone told House Intelligence Committee lawmakers during his testimony last month that he has been falsely accused of colluding with Russia.
