With prosecutors interviewing a dozen of his associates, Roger Stone told hundreds of supporters of President Donald Trump on Monday night that “it is entirely possible that Mr. Mueller will frame me for some extraneous crime.”

Stone, speaking to the Club 45 PBC at the Palm Beach Kennel Club, said he’s never colluded with Russia and will never go the route of longtime Trump attorney Michael Cohen and cooperate against Trump.

“I’m ready. I will never roll on Donald Trump. Michael Cohen I am not,” Stone said. “One reporter asked me last week ‘Are you worried?’ I don’t worry. I make other people worry.”

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.
