Search warrants executed in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe of Russian hackers have unearthed interactions between recently indicted Trump campaign adviser Roger Stone and WikiLeaks, which leaked emails stolen from the DemocraticNational Committee (DNC) and other Democratic-related organizations and operatives, according to a Friday court filing.
