Before the sun had a chance to rise, under the direction of the special counsel Russia investigation, the FBI raided the home of Roger Stone and took him into custody.
the 66-year-old Stone faces seven charges which include making false statements to Congress, obstruction and witness tampering among them.
However none of the charges accuse Stone of collusion with Russia or of being involved with the theft of Democrat’s emails.
The charges mainly focus on conversations Stone had with Trump officials about Wikileaks, as well as interactions with right-wing author Jerome Corsi and left-wing activist Randy Credico.
Stone’s lawyer, Grant Smith, dismissed the charges as prosecutors trying to find something to pin Stone with.
“They couldn’t find collusion, so they’re trying to get him on an immaterial charge,” Smith relayed to TheDCNF.
“It goes without saying, Roger is going to fight this,” he added.
In response, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders declared that “the charges brought against Mr. Stone have nothing to do with the president, has nothing to do with White House.” She then reiterated that, “the president did nothing wrong.”
