Original Message Roger Stone, a former informal adviser to President Trump, on Monday settled a defamation suit that sought $100 million in damages over material he published on AJs website, according to The Wall Street Journal, admitting that he made false statements on the far-right website.

The Journal notes that the settlement includes an agreement that mandates Stone run ads in newspapers apologizing for making defamatory statements about Chinese businessman Guo Wengui. The agreement also requires Stone to post a retraction of the false statements he made on social media.

Acting on the requirements will reportedly exempt Stone from paying any damages.

“I am solely responsible for fulfilling the terms of the settlement," Stone said in a text message to the Journal, adding that his past conduct was "irresponsible."

The Hill has reached out to Stone for further comment.

The settlement comes about nine months after Guo, a Chinese businessman who is a vocal critic of China, filed a lawsuit against the longtime political operative.
