Roger Stone, the longtime friend and adviser to President Donald Trump, tells The Palm Beach Post that Special Counsel Robert Mueller should resign or be fired.

Fort Lauderdale resident Stone weighed in on Mueller after Stone’s longtime friend and former business partner Paul Manafort had his Northern Virginia home raided by the FBI as part of Mueller’s probe of Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Stone began encouraging Trump to run for president in the 1980s and worked briefly on Trump’s 2016 campaign before departing in a disagreement with former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski. Although lacking an official link to the Trump campaign, Stone remained influential and has been accused of knowing in advance about Russian hacks of Democratic emails. Stone emphatically denies any collusion with Russians.
