“She’s a balancing influence on him.
“She’s the one who ultimately said, ‘You know, Donald, stop talking about running for president and do it… And if you run, you’re going to win.’”
In 2019, Mr Stone was arrested in relation to Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel Investigation.
In February, he was sentenced to 40 months in prison after being found guilty on seven counts of lying to Congress, obstruction and witness tampering.

“She should be with her husband.
“He is the president of the United States.”
A White House official reportedly claimed: “People cross Melania at their own risk – and that risk is, ‘Off with your head.’
“I’m not kidding… You are gone if she doesn’t like you.”
Trump is standing for re-election in November.
However, polling seems to suggest Democratic challenger Joe Biden will win the election, with the former Vice-President’s odds shortening according to Oddschecker.
The Democrats are also favourites to retain their majority in the House of Representatives which they won in the 2018 midterms.
The Republicans are however favourites to retain the Senate majority, a third of the 100 seats are up for election every two years.
In total 23 Republican and 12 Democrat seats are up for election in November in regular reflections, whilst 2 Republican senators are up for special elections having been appointed by state governors to see out terms of previously elected senators in Arizona and Georgia.
