Mueller denounced 12 Russian military officers in hacking the Democratic National Committee of 2016 on Friday, claiming they had hijacked DNC officials and distributed the stolen documents via online personas, including Guccifer 2.0.
The document contains messages exchanged between Guccifer 2.0 and the person in contact with Trump campaign representatives. These messages correspond to those previously published by Stone regarding the hacker Guccifer 2.0.
The GOP agent told The Hill Friday that his Guccifer 2.0 messages are "benign, based on contextual context and timing".
"This exchange is completely public and does not provide evidence of collaboration or collusion with Guccifer 2.0 or anyone in the alleged hacking of DNC emails, and it also takes place many weeks after the events described in today's indictment," said Stone.
Stone also said on CNN that he wanted the accused Russian military officers to be extradited, "so that we can have a process to investigate the DNC server and thus prove or disprove this charge."
The former Trump consultant said to Hill.TV's "Rising" last month that it's possible for him to be tried in Müllers trial.
