President Donald Trump’s former adviser Roger Stone accused Fox News host Sean Hannity and recently ousted Fox News co-president Bill Shine via Twitter Tuesday of blocking him from Fox News because he stopped Hannity from becoming the White House Chief of Staff.

Despite Hannity's pro-Trump stance and Stone's long time relationship with the president, it appeared Stone does not consider himself a fan of the Fox News host.

In a pair of tweets, the political strategist accused the Fox host and former Fox News co-president of blocking him from the network because he stopped Hannity from getting a White House job.

Stone wrote in one of his tweets: “Sean Hannity and his lackey Bill Shine blocked me from Fox because I blocked Sean's insane effort to become @realDonaldTrump WH COS.”

Hannity responded to both his tweets saying: “I NEVER EVER ASKED to be considered for any WH job.”

Over the past few months, Stone has been in the news due to allegations of his involvement with the collusion between Russia and Trump associates to meddle with the 2016 presidential election. Stone has continuously denied these allegations however, it was reported in March that he was in contact with the DNC hacker.

Stone confessed in March he had contact with a self-described Romanian hacker, "Guccifer 2.0," who claimed to have hacked the Democratic National Committee (DNC) last year to steal information which was then passed on to WikiLeaks.

Stone said he had "completely innocuous" conversations with the hacker, adding "it was so perfunctory, brief and banal I had forgotten it," the Washington Times reported.

Stone wrote about the hacker in an article on Breitbart News in August 2016 and claimed the Russians weren't behind the hack. After the publication of the article, Guccifer 2.0 contacted Stone through Twitter's personal message feature saying, "Wow. Thank u for writing back, and thank u for an article about me!!!," according to details of the conversations obtained by the Washington Times.

Recently, reports claimed that the popular Fox News host, Hannity would soon depart from the network following Shine’s resignation on Monday. However, Hannity said all the reports and speculations were not true.

Shine resigned from his post after he was accused of trying to hide former Fox News CEO Roger Ailes’ alleged sexual misconduct. Shine also retaliated against the network’s employees who accused Ailes of sexual harassment.

Fox News has been facing several sexual assault charges since last year, involving former Fox News Chairman and CEO Ailes and the network’s formerly top-rated host, Bill O’Reilly. Fox settled these charges through time. Juliet Huddy, a longtime Fox News personality, had accused O’Reilly of sexual harassment.

Fox News reached a $20 million settlement with former Fox News host Gretchen Carlson, whose lawsuit against Ailes in July 2016 led to his resignation. After Carlson's charges, several women including former host Megyn Kelly and political pundit Andrea Tantaros came up with similar allegations of sexual harassment against Ailes, according to the Los Angeles Times.
