Roger Stone and Donald Trump met in the 1970s. Since then, Roger Stone is a personal confidant of the President. His career in national politics and his relationship with Trump began well before the 2016 campaign.
Both were presented by Trump's lawyer, Roy Cohn.
"I had a lawyer who was a very good lawyer, a tough lawyer, named Roy Cohn, who at one point introduced me to Roger Stone," Trump said in a documentary on Netflix about Roger. Stone.
"Roy thought Roger was a very tough guy, Roy knew very hard guys, I'll tell you, but Roy always thought that Roger was not only tough, but also a smart and very political guy."
