Wyden Statement on Rick Gates' Testimony in Roger Stone's Trial

Senator Ron Wyden, D-Ore., today released the following statement in reaction to Rick Gates’ testimony in Roger Stone’s trial: 

“Rick Gates today provided blockbuster testimony indicating that Donald Trump lied under oath when he told Special Counsel Mueller that he did not recall discussing with Roger Stone the release of emails stolen by Russian intelligence officials during the 2016 campaign. Gates painted a picture of a campaign that was not only informed about the releases of stolen emails, but coordinated its campaign around those releases. At this point there is no question the Trump campaign, and Donald Trump himself, enthusiastically accepted the help of a foreign power to improve his chances of winning the 2016 election.”
