Trump confidante Roger Stone has taken two lie detector tests to prove to special counsel Robert Mueller that he's not lying about his contacts with Russia.


ABC News reported that polygraph administrators asked Stone whether he communicated with Wikileaks' Julian Assange and whether the GOP operative discussed "stolen information" with Assange or Donald Trump.

Stone responded "no" to both questions in the polygraph results shared with ABC by his legal team.

"I suggested a polygraph in order to pin down the veracity of Roger's positions on the investigation by the special counsel with regard to Julian Assange and Wikileaks," Florida attorney Bruce Rogow told ABC. "I have great confidence in the polygraph examiner, to whom I sent Mr. Stone."

Earlier in the day, the Wall Street Journal reported that Mueller has recordings of 2016 phone calls where Stone bragged about his plans to release documents stolen by Wikileaks.
