This was a long time coming.
He was saying he was going to be arrested for months. Or maybe even like a year.
Of course, it’s purely procedural crimes he’s being charged with – that is, alleged crimes committed during the procedure of the investigation itself.
The Special Counsel arresting people for crimes that weren’t even committed when it was convened is a bit like Rand Paul’s “we’re fighting people who weren’t even born when 911 happened” bit.
Roger Stone allegedly called an associate “a rat” and threatened to have his dog killed in a bid to stop him testifying to the special counsel investigating ties between the Trump campaign and Russia.
Mr Stone, a former adviser to Donald Trump, was arrested in Florida by the FBI on Friday on seven counts involving witness tampering, obstruction and false statements regarding interactions he had with Wikileaks ahead of the 2016 presidential election.
The indictment, brought by special counsel Robert Mueller, details extraordinary interactions between Mr Stone and senior officials in the Trump campaign, as well an two other unnamed high-profile individuals.
Prosecutors accuse the political provocateur of threatening one of the unnamed associates, who hosted a radio programme, in an apparent attempt to stop the unnamed person from testifying to investigators probing Russian influence in the 2016 US presidential election.
The 24-page indictment is peppered with alleged threats from Mr Stone to the unnamed associate:
“You are a rat. A stoolie. You backstab your friends-run your mouth my lawyers are dying Rip you to shreds,” Mr Stone told the person in a 9 April email.
He also threatened to “take that dog away from you,” and said, “I am so ready. Let’s get it on. Prepare to die.”
In a 1 December 2017 text message, Mr Stone told the person: “If you testify you’re a fool. Because of tromp I could never get away with a certain my Fifth Amendment rights but you can. I guarantee you you are the one who gets indicted for perjury if you’re stupid enough to testify.”
Mr Stone, who has repeatedly said in interviews he was likely to be indicted, appeared at the federal courthouse in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on Friday, where he was realeased on $250,000 bail.
If all of these people being indicted by Mueller are involved in a conspiracy to cover something up, why have none of them been indicted for anything they’re covering up?
This is so retarded.
The Jew media is saying, they’re saying…
Man, what a fucking hack.
Who writes that headline?
Roger Stone is obviously an unhinged individual, and I’m sure they could have arrested him for something like this at any time.
They decided to wait until the investigation was fizzling out to play the Stone card.
The media kept claiming he was some big player in the Russian conspiracy, but there is nothing about that in the indictment. Just threats to dogs and so on.
He will probably also be hit with some tax bullshit and sent to prison forever.
Stone was on Tucker last night after he was released.
