A White House spokesperson subsequently reached out to CNN to reiterate Trump's statement, saying the President has not spoken to Roger Stone in a "long time" and, more sharply, "The President has not spoken to Roger Stone in many months and any reports suggesting otherwise are categorically untrue".
It is noteworthy that, while Stone is adamant that he hasn't been the source of media reports claiming that he talked to Trump about firing Comey, he has not gone as far as to say that he actually didn't give Trump that advice.
Yesterday, President Trump fired FBI Director James Comey for his handling of the Hillary Clinton email inquiry, citing a Justice Department memorandum censuring Comey for his actions in July and October of past year. "I'm not going to contradict him here on the 'Today Show.' I think in the case of James Comey, he made the right decision", he said.
Joy Behar and Roger Stone painted a nightmare scenario for the audience of ABC's "The View" on Friday.
While Stone was jubilant, Politico reports that "shock dominated much of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the White House".

The UN Secretary General said growing food insecurity is affecting millions of Somalis. The conference was hosted by British Prime Minister Theresa May.
But the filmmakers insist that such an assertion seems off the mark, especially considering Stone's much-publicized visit to Trump Tower in December. "I would have fired him five seconds after I took my hand off the Bible".
Soon after, Stone began prodding the real estate magnate to run for president, viewing him as "a prime piece of political horse flesh".
In a May 5 interview with "The David Webb" show, Stone said the last time he had spoken to the President was "less than a week ago".
He said "the Russian collusion scandal is without any evidence to this day". "I don't think there's anything here".
Those offering their own appraisals in "Get Me Roger Stone", including the president, Paul Manafort and Fox News commentator Tucker Carlson, have other names for the spotlight-grabbing political consultant.
