President Donald Trump's confidant Roger Stone was charged with lying about his pursuit of Russian-hacked emails damaging to Hillary Clinton's 2016 election bid, with prosecutors alleging that senior Trump campaign officials sought to leverage the publication of the stolen material into a White House victory. The self-proclaimed dirty trickster, arrested by the FBI in a raid before dawn Friday at his Florida home, blasted the prosecution as politically motivated. In a circus-like atmosphere outside the courthouse, as supporters cheered him on and spectators shouted "Lock Him Up," Stone proclaimed his innocence and predicted his vindication. "As I have said previously, there is no circumstance whatsoever under which I will bear false witness against the president, nor will I make up lies to ease the pressure on myself," Stone said.

President Donald Trump is confident he can defy recent political history and turn Minnesota red in 2020. He said so in June, telling a Duluth rally that snagging the state he came within 44,765 votes of winning would be "really, really easy" next time. Trump's campaign team considers Minnesota — which hasn't voted for a Republican presidential nominee since Richard Nixon in 1972 — a 2020 battleground. Strategists in both parties say they might be right, and some early forecasts put the state in the tossup column. "There's a misperception of Minnesota as relatively safe territory" for Democrats, said Carrie Lucking, manager of Tim Walz's winning campaign for governor, one of a handful of big wins by Democrats in the recent midterm elections.
