Trump ally Roger Stone, indicted in Mueller probe, was a former student

Roger Stone, a longtime friend of and adviser to President Donald Trump who was arrested Friday for allegedly lying to government officials, was a former student.

Stone was indicted by a grand jury Thursday on seven counts, including witness tampering, obstruction of an official proceeding and five counts of false statements, brought forward by Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Mueller alleges that Stone tried to obtain stolen emails from WikiLeaks after the leak of internal Democratic National Committee communications in 2016, multiple news outlets reported.

Stone relocated to the District in 1970 to attend GW. A political science major, Stone became president of the District of Columbia Young Republicans and worked for multiple conservative organizations, The Washington Post reported in 1986.

He completed two years of school at GW and then applied for continuous enrollment status, allowing him to pick up his studies later. Stone took one more class and ended his career at the University with 48 of the 120 credit hours required to graduate, The Post reported.

“I tried to go back for five years,” Stone told The Post at the time. “I’d get the course books.”

Stone was let out on a $250,000 bond Friday and said he will plead not guilty, The Hill reported.
