How a front group concealed Donald Trump’s attacks against an Indian tribe

Con­sult­ant Ro­ger Stone, a mas­ter of dark polit­ic­al tac­tics, told New York state in­vest­ig­at­ors that he came up with the idea to cre­ate a pur­por­ted anti-gambling group to hide the fact that Don­ald Trump was pay­ing for at­tack ads to thwart plans for a Nat­ive Amer­ic­an tribe’s casino. Stone was un­abashed and un­re­pent­ant throughout his grilling by in­vest­ig­at­ors, ad­mit­ting that the pres­id­ent of the group made no de­cisions – and in­sist­ing Trump was en­titled to fund the cam­paign in secret.
