Roger Stone Arrested

Former Trump advisor Roger Stone was arrested early Friday morning and charged with obstruction, witness tampering, and lying to Congress.

He was released a few hours later on $250,000 bond. He apparently left the courthouse waving a double peace sign in the style of Richard Nixon.

Although he was arrested at his home in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, the FBI also executed a warrant for his New York residence as well.

An unsealed indictment revealed this morning shows that a senior Trump campaign official was “directed” to contact Stone before the 2016 election regarding forthcoming leaks about Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee.

The revelation strongly suggests that the Trump campaign actually knew about the stolen Democratic emails long before the leaks were made public by WikiLeaks.

Stone addressed the crowd when he left the federal courthouse and declared his innocence. He also swore not to testify against the president.

“As I have always said, the only thing worse than being talked about is not being talked about.”  — Stone

In response, the crowd began chanting “lock him up,” a somewhat ironic appropriation of the same chant leveled at Clinton.
