Stone , who served as unofficial advisor to Trump's campaign, was charged with seven charges that lied to Congress, witnessed manipulation and obstruction of justice. But Sarah Sanders, secretary of the White House, said the matter had nothing to do with the president.
Wasserman Schultz suggested Sanders as "both ignorant and a liar" who "readily entered into completely false information".
A Major Part of Stone's indictment claims he has actively sought information from WikiLeaks at the behest of a high-ranking Trump campaign official. The identity of this individual is unclear.
Stone vehemently denied the allegations, claiming he was the victim of an institution.
Despite the pushback, Wasserman Schultz said she plans to work with Chairman of the Board of Supervisors of the House of Representatives, Elijah Cummings (DM.D.), to find answers.
