The “high-ranking Trump campaign official” referenced in Trump associate Roger Stone’s indictment is reportedly former White House chief strategist and Trump campaign chief executive Steve Bannon, according to two new reports.

Stone was arrested Friday in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and has been indicted by special counsel Robert Mueller on seven counts. The charges include one count of obstruction, five counts of making false statements, and one count of witness tampering.

According to the indictment, an unnamed Trump campaign official instructed Stone to learn about which emails WikiLeaks possessed that could contain damaging information about Hillary Clinton. Bannon is the unnamed official referenced, according to reports by CNBC and Bloomberg, each of which cited one unnamed source.

The 24-page indictment outlines that the Trump campaign official contacted Stone about “future releases by Organization 1,” a reference to WikiLeaks and its founder Julian Assange.

    Good job, Mueller! This may lead to more indictments, maybe bring down the big guy himself.

    Trump will now attempt to distance himself from Stone in 3…2…1…
