"I’m next on the crooked special prosecutor’s hit list because I’ve advised Donald Trump for the past 39 years. I am being targeted not because I committed a crime, but because the 'deep state' liberals want to silence me and pressure me to testify against my good friend President Donald J. Trump."

Stone's message to his supporters came about a week after Trump's former campaign chairman, Paul ManafortPaul John ManafortDOJ investigating one-time Trump campaign adviser over alleged ties to Qatar: report Foreign lobbyists donated over M during 2020 election: report Former Mueller prosecutor representing Donoghue in congressional probes: report MORE, was convicted of and his former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, pled guilty to federal crimes stemming from Mueller's investigation.
Stone told The Guardian in a text message on Monday that he thinks Mueller “may frame me for some bogus charge in order to silence me or induce me to testify against the president."
Stone has voiced similar predictions before. In June, he told Hill.TV that it's possible Mueller would indict him as part of the investigation.
It was later noted in July that Mueller's indictment of Russian military officers in the 2016 hacking of the Democratic National Committee appeared to make reference to Stone.
Stone acknowledged that messages included in the indictment matched ones that he exchanged with hacker Guccifer 2.0. Mueller has alleged that Guccifer was a front for Russian operatives, according to The Guardian.
Mueller has investigated multiple people linked to Stone as part of its probe.
His team met with Kristin Davis, who once ran a high-end prostitution ring, earlier this month regarding her relationship with Stone.
