An attorney for Trump confidante Roger Stone has sent a letter to the House Intelligence Committee demanding the panel release the full testimony his client gave the panel in September 2017 during a closed-door session.

In his Dec. 20 letter, which was addressed to committee chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., attorney Grant J. Smith said that it was imperative that Stone’s four-hour testimony be released publicly so his client could combat allegations that he lied under oath to the panel.

“Notwithstanding the ceaseless torrent of partisan claims to the contrary to which Mr. Stone has been subjected by certain minority members of the Committee, Mr. Stone’s testimony provided during the Interview was forthcoming, truthful, and wholly consistent with his many detailed public statements on the matters being investigated,” Smith continued.

Sheer - Volume - Aspersions - Mr - Stone

“Given the sheer volume of partisan aspersions cast on Mr. Stone and his veracity by some of the Committee’s minority members, the accurate and full record of his testimony warrants immediate and full release for everyone to see.”

Smith’s letter is dated a day after special counsel Robert Mueller requested a full transcript of Stone’s testimony. The Associated Press reported that the panel voted unanimously in favor of releasing it to the special counsel.
