“In view of the fact that I expect to be acquitted and vindicated and that my attorneys … believe that this indictment is thin as piss on a rock, I’m prepared to fight for my life," Stone said on ABC's "This Week" when asked if he's prepared to spend the rest of his life in prison.

Stone was indicted Friday on seven counts in Mueller's probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election. He is charged with one count of obstruction of an official proceeding, five counts of false statements and a count of witness tampering.

The indictment also states that a top Trump campaign official was instructed to contact Stone to get information about the WikiLeaks hacks of Democratic emails ahead of the 2016 election.

Stone, who in 2016 hinted on Twitter and in public that he had advance knowledge of the WikiLeaks email dumps, on Sunday denied any wrongdoing.

He said he never received "any stolen or hacked material" and that he only took publicly available information and tried "to get it as much attention as possible."

"All I did was take publicly available information and try to hype it to get it as much attention as possible because I had a tip that the information was politically significant and that it would come in October," he said on "This Week."

Stone also indicated that he may be willing to testify in Mueller's probe, saying that he would need to confer with his attorneys but that he would "certainly testify honestly."

"If there’s wrongdoing by other people on the campaign that I know about, which I know of none, but if there is, I would certainly testify honestly. I’d also testify honestly about any other matter, including any communications with the president," Stone said.

Following a court appearance last Friday, Stone pledged not to testify against Trump.
