Roger Stone, the longtime Republican political operator and confidant of President Trump, was arrested on Friday after being indicted on seven counts including obstruction, witness tampering and making false statements in connection with the Russian attack on the 2016 election.

Stone appeared at the federal courthouse in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. He did not enter a plea. He was released on $250,000 bond and with travel restrictions that confine him to South Florida, New York City and the Washington, D.C., area.

Wikileaks is offering a $100,000 bounty for the text of the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal. We talk with Kelly McBride of The Poynter Institute about when it's okay to pay news sources.
