This covers stores that are 2500 Square feet are larger, and they're about 25 of them in Berkeley, including Whole foods, Trader Joe's and Berkeley Bowl.

Roger stone has been arrested and indicted, President Trump's longtime friend and advisor is doing a Florida courtroom this morning. He was arrested at his home in Florida. Stone faces seven federal charges relating to the special counsel's investigation into possible. Links between the Trump campaign and Russia in the two thousand sixteen election. Joining us now NPR pure White House correspondent tamra Keith. And national Justice correspondent Carrie Johnson commodity both good morning carrying going to start with you. What more can you? Tell us about the indictment. Roger stone is charged with obstruction with lying to congressional investigators and with alleged witness tampering. Stone has been denying wrongdoing throughout this investigation, basically, saying whatever conduct I- investigators are authorities thought he was up to with WikiLeaks in the course in two thousand sixteen campaign was merely a good guess, but this indictment. Rachel lays out some new evidence. That stone was in regular contact with WikiLeaks labeled as organization one in these court papers and senior officials in the Trump campaign in the course of the two thousand sixteen campaign, including a particularly critical time in September and October. When Wiki leaks was dumping negative information about Trump's political rival, Hillary Clinton. So if we know that Roger stone was in communications with WikiLeaks. And we know US intelligence agencies have said WikiLeaks was operating at the behest of Russia. Does that mean that Roger stone has been now connected directly to Russia's efforts to interfere in the US election? Well, we don't see all the evidence in this indictment. This morning more is likely to come out in the course of the court proceedings later today and in the weeks ahead. Roger stone has always said he did nothing wrong. Wiki leaks has denied it's been in cahoots with Russia, but thirties seemed to have some evidence to back up these claims in the indictment issued by Grainger. Tamra? Can you remind us about Roger stone's relationship with President Trump? How a goes back a long time. Right. It goes back a longtime. Roger stone is a longtime political consultant who worked on presidential campaigns going back to Richard Nixon even has a tattoo of Richard Nixon's face on his back. He actually worked on the Trump campaign at self though, he quit in August of two thousand fifteen but he never really lost touch with the Trump campaign that often happens in Trump orbit people never really leave even when they fall out and in this case based on what the indictment alleges there were numerous contacts between Roger stone. And and high ranking people in the Trump campaign at very critical moments in the campaign, and as related to the Wiki WikiLeaks release of stolen campaign Email. We saw. As Michael Cohen as his legal jeopardy. Started to increase. We saw a President Trump distance himself from his former attorney have we seen President Trump distance himself from Roger stone in the past months. Not on the past months, but way, before that, President Trump has a, you know, the the White House has said like Roger stone. He's not our issue. He left they campaign back in two thousand fifteen but what what this indictment shows is that the wasn't completely out of the loop. We do have a clip of Roger stone carry mentioned that he has been consistent in his denials here. He is from an MSNBC interview back in March twenty eighteen I can say with confidence that I know nothing about any Russian collusion or any other inappropriate act that I never had any advance knowledge of the content the source or the exact timing of the WikiLeaks disclosures. So now we have an FBI indictment that suggests otherwise Carrie Johnson. There is another close. Former advisor to President Trump who will appear in a courtroom today. That's right, Paul Manafort, Trump's former campaign chairman is appearing in court in Washington DC today part of a proceeding to determine whether he intentionally lied to investigators in this special counsel's office and blew up his plea deal. This is remarkable Rachel because Manafort, and Roger stone are former business partners during the nineteen eighties. They were as high flying as it gets in Washington DC sometimes walking right up to the line. Some people would say walking over the line when it came to their lobbying activities in the US and around the world now both of these men have been indicted by federal grand juries, quite a comedown from the heights of the nineteen eighties. Okay. NPR's Carrie Johnson and Timur Keith. Thanks so much. We appreciate it. You're how close does this case come to Russia and how close? Does this case come to the president of the United States? Let's work through the evidence. With former assistant US attorney, Kim waylay good morning. Morning. I want to start with the manners indicted here, Roger stone. I think about other figures who've been linked to Russia or Russian activity in the past couple of years people like Carter page, President Trump dismissed him as not being ever an important part of his campaign. Paul Manafort was the campaign chairman, and yet the president is dismissed him as a guy who just worked for him for a little while, but Roger stone. There's just no denying it at all these quite close to President Trump and has been for decades. Yeah. This indictment in particular at refers to him as a senior official in the Trump campaign. And I think what really stand out is the numerous references to communications directly with the Trump campaign. Oh before and during the WikiLeaks releases of information that's damp was damaging to the Clinton campaign. Yeah. I wanna read actually just one line in this indictment mentioning one of those communications it's dated two thousand sixteen. So this is long after Roger stone and formally left. The Trump campaign was clearly those still in the Trump orbit as we heard tamra Keiser and the indictment says after the July twenty two two thousand sixteen releases stolen DNC emails by organization one which is WikiLeaks figure that out a senior Trump campaign official was directed. We don't know who directed was directed to contact Roger stone about any additional releases and what other damage. Information WikiLeaks had regarding the Clinton campaign stone thereafter told the Trump campaign about potential future releases of damaging material by WikiLeaks. Roger stone is acting there as the intermediary as the source as the connection between the Trump campaign and WikiLeaks. Yes, and the indictment details lots of emails and texts that back up that allegation, and it also suggests that the emails and texts many of them came from Mr. shown himself, and he lied about. Having this information we need to remember the key date here, which is October seventeenth twenty sixteen. That's the day that President Obama announced that Russia was behind the hack of the DNC drew and an entity at hacker called Gusta for two point zero which was alleged to be a front for Russian operative that same day the access Hollywood tape was leaked and then WikiLeaks postings. Podesta emails started that same day, and that went on for many days, thousands of emails were leaked at that point. And of course, Mr. Trump himself was making public statements sort of egging on WikiLeaks to release this kind of information. So this is pretty pretty much at the core of what people have called loosely collusion, but he's really umbrella for sort of many other potential crimes and really larger criminal enterprise that as you indicated involve lots of people that were close to the Trump campaign, Mr. Colin, Mr. Manafort, Mr Flynn, Mr. style, Mr. topple, popadopoulos, Mr. gates, etc. So we have this friend of the president who's very close to the president's still close to the campaign. Let's work in the other direction back toward Russia. How strong to our knowledge is the evidence that WikiLeaks is in some way working with or in a way that is favorable to Russia. Well, you know in this indictment. I think the introduction makes the link without make. It express it said in may the DNC became aware that their computer systems had been compromised by unauthorized intrusions in June, the DNC announced that it had been hacked by Russian actors and in July organization organization one WikiLeaks, which had previously posted documents Dolan. Started releasing tens of thousands of documents don't want from the DNC and a personal Email account of the chairman, Mr. of the Clinton campaign. And then of course, the indictment goes on to talk about how Mr. stone communicated with the Trump campaign about the information damaging to Hillary Clinton coming out of WikiLeaks. So we have to be careful about drawing any, you know, clear conclusions that aren't in the documents in my view that have been filed by the special counsel's office. And there's a lot of them. But I think we're at the point that it's quite easy to connect the dots. With just our logical minds as I tell my. My lawsuit. Does this indictment significantly advance? Your understanding of what happened during the two thousand sixteen election, then well, it does to the extent to which now had lots of quotations from the direct communication between the Trump campaign, our Mitchell, I should say, and this organization one it also I think starts building this other threat of witness tampering. There's sort of sopranos like allegations in here again quotations about threats to someone known as referred to as person to that. Mr. Stone threatened his dog that you're a rat is prepared to die. And of course, we we've seen with Mr. Cohen other allegations of sort of obstruction of Justice, lying potentially bullying witnesses. And I think that we've seen historically to the extent to which that is connected in any way. With the president has has brought down president tampering is brought down both Mr Clinton as well. As Mr. Nixon in terms of the articles impeachment. Okay. Kim waylay former federal prosecutor, thanks very much. Really? Appreciate it. My pleasure. And she's talking with us on this day that we have learned that Roger stone friend and longtime advisor to President Trump has been indicted and arrested on charges relating to stolen emails during the two thousand sixteen campaign or.

But little she have any fun also followed for the head of CVS who faces allegations of sexual misconduct and a new list of the two hundred greatest songs. By twenty first, century women you look at lists even if the best music of the two thousand you'll get beyond saying at. The top but often the rest of the list is really mostly centered. Around men now news from k. q. e.. D. news I'm Tiffany. Cam high the former mayor of Oakland and. East Bay congressman Ron Dellums. Has died Dellums was in Oakland native and in one thousand nine hundred. Seventy one he became the first black congressman from northern California during his career which spanned more than. Forty years he was an war activist and a supporter of social. Justice movements He died this morning at his home in Washington DC at the age of eighty two, k. q., e. d. politics reporter guy marzorati joins me now to look back on Dellums. Life first of all guy how did Dellums get his start in politics. Well it really was through organizing and activism has uncle Seattle was a? Well known local union leader dome served in, the marines. He then became a Berkeley city council member right at the time we're Berkeley was kind of a national epicenter of antiwar protests and Dellums really took that activism. With him when, he went to congress what kind of impacted Dellums have when he served in the US house of representatives well. I think what really stood out most from my conversations today with domes. Former colleagues and his friends is that he. Never lost that activists. Spirit when you've got to Capitol Hill he. Kind of just shouted it. From a larger platform and he was known to take stand strong political. Stance the first being against the Vietnam war than his efforts against apartheid government in South Africa you. Know year after year he would put forward these resolutions against the South African government finally, in the mid eighties he got an led an effort to impose sanctions I talked? With, Sandra Swanson a former assemblyman who was an early staffer for Dellums and he said domes really took the efforts to back Nelson Mandela really personally and that's when he grew a, beard he said I'm going to I'm going to not, shave his beard Nelson Mandela's three although he keep his. Beard after Nelson Mandela was free and that culminated in one thousand nine hundred ninety when, Dellums actually, hosted Nelson Mandela a huge celebration at the Oakland call him Dumbs was also the mayor of Oakland from. Two thousand seven to two. Thousand and eleven what was his legacy there yeah I think it's. Fair, to say that most, people when they talk about domes like they split. It between his time in congress and then those four years in the mayor's office because those were, rocky came during the great recession there's a lot of internal. Turmoil at city hall and ultimately I. Think the, complaint you may, hear most is that he just wasn't present hands on. Enough I talked with former councilman Ignasio de LA Fuente he ran against alums in two thousand and six here's how he put it being mayor of the city is specially like golden Different again before. In job is the different. Demands that and and I don't think he was Well. But he tried and obviously could but I should say that domes time in congress he did he was known. As someone who provided for his district who got a lot of federal funding back to Oakland what kind of?.
