Roger Stone-linked ‘Manhattan Madam’ to testify in Mueller probe



The former "Manhattan Madam" and political protectorate of the informal councilor of President Donald Trump, Roger Stone, is destined to testify on Friday before a grand jury in the Russian probe of special adviser Robert Mueller, NBC News.

, who said he had provided prostitutes at the then New York governor Eliot Spitzer, was sued by Mueller last month as part of his investigation into Russian interference in the elections US presidential elections in 2016. Davis had told through his lawyer that he was collaborating with the special adviser, noting that "I have nothing" to offer regarding "information on Russian collusion".

She also met last week with members of Mueller's team. Stone told CNBC last Friday: "He knows nothing about the alleged Russian collusion, the WikiLeaks collaboration or any other misconduct related to the 2016 elections, which I thought was the subject of this investigation."

The stone became the focal point of Mueller's investigations, CNBC reported. In addition to his connections with the Wikileaks founder, Julian Assange, whose website has published emails allegedly stolen from Democrats by Russian sources, Mueller is observing Stone's interactions with the former Trump campaign officer Rick Gates, sources to CNBC.

Gates pleaded guilty to lying to investigators and conspiring against the United States in a deal that he struck with Mueller's prosecutors. As part of this agreement, Gates testified this week in the scam and conspiracy of the federal bank of his former business partner Paul Manafort.

Davis is just one of the few figures connected to Stone who were contacted by the special consultant during the course of the investigation. The New York Times reported in June that Andrew Miller, a former aide who worked for Stone on the eve of the 2016 Republican National Convention, had been sued before the grand jury.

Miller was reported as responsible for the Davis campaign during his failed attempt in 2010 in New York's governorship. Davis told NBC he started working with Stone, who reportedly helped his pro bono campaign during that race.

Other Stone colleagues, including Michael Caputo and Sam Nunberg, discussed their interactions with the special adviser.

It is unclear what information Mueller is looking for from Davis. The special adviser's office did not respond immediately to CNBC's request for comment.
