    Absolutely thrilled. I was down in Ft. Lauderdale for a conference last month, and one of the attorneys presenting at the conference said he had seen Roger Stone in a bar the previous night. He made some wise crack like "I wish I had gotten a photo with him before he goes to prison". 5 weeks later, and the FBI is knocking at the door of his Ft. Lauderdale home!

    So, unfortunately for Trump some government parts aren't shut down. Or does this investigation have a special status excluding it from shutdowns?

    Edit: Looks like Trump isn't the only one with a questionable hairdo.

    The indictment unsealed Friday after Stone's arrest makes clear he communicated with multiple people about what Assange knew, and they were providing him updates from Assange and what Stone wanted to communicate with him. Prosecutors cite text messages and emails he exchanged with the people about what Assange had, and one sent a photo of himself standing outside the Ecaudorian embassy in London, where Assange has stayed for years.

    Oh man, hopefully more dominos start to fall from here. With Stones arrest, that brings the total number of Trump folks brought down by Mueller to six, the others being Michael Flynn, Rick Gates, Paul Manafort, George Papadopoulos, and Michael Cohen.
