Senate seeks detail about Roger Stone’s 2016 Russia contact

The committee’s request comes days after it was revealed that in May 2016 Stone was approached through intermediaries by Henry Greenberg, reportedly a Russian citizen who claimed to have damaging material on Hillary Clinton, as first reported by The Washington Post on Sunday.

Over lunch in Sunny Isles, Florida, a community north of Miami that is popular with Russian transplants and tourists, Greenberg reportedly offered to sell Stone damaging material on Clinton for $2 million – a deal Stone said he declined.

…The new disclosure raised concerns among Democrats overseeing congressional investigations into allegations of Russian collusion in the 2016 presidential campaign because Stone had never mentioned the contact when he testified before the House Intelligence Committee last year.

“In multiple respects now, the testimony of Roger Stone appears inaccurate or deliberately misleading,” Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said Sunday, referring to Stone’s September 2017 committee testimony.
