According to a January 24 indictment unsealed after his arrest Friday, Stone appeared to act as a kind of liaison between "Organization 1"--widely understood to be WikiLeaks--and the Trump campaign, discussing with senior officials "information [WikiLeaks] might have had that would be damaging to the Clinton Campaign."
