Roger Stone was released on $250,000 signature bond. He doesn’t have to put any money up for the bond so long as he appears before the court when required.
Stone was arrested at 6 am this morning by FBI agents who handcuffed and shackled him – and then searched his house in Florida and his apartment in New York City.
He is charged with the process crimes of witness intimidation and lying to Congress – and not for colluding or conspiring with Russians to interfere in the 2016 presidential election.
According to published reports, when asked by the judge to turn in his passport, Stone said, “I do not have a valid passport, it is expired”. Stone will also have to submit to substance abuse testing as part of what was agreed to in pre-trial.
Stone’s travel is restricted, by judge’s order to: South Florida [where he lives], the Eastern District of New York, and the Eastern District of Washington D.C. and Virginia.
After his release, Stone said outside the courthouse, “I will plead not guilty to these charges, I will defeat them in court, I believe this is a politically motivated investigation.”
Stone also said he would not bear false witness against President Trump.
Stone said he is falsely accused and both he and his attorney said they found the tactics this morning at his house disturbing.
His attorney said Stone was not in hiding and that a mere phone call would have been sufficient to get Stone to appear in court.
While he spoke a crowd of hecklers gathered outside the courthouse and unsuccessfully tried to shout him down and prevent him from speaking.
Unrelated to the post, but…
there is a crazed stalker who searches Frank Report multiple times, daily, looking for any criticism of a certain hoe, so that he can swoop in and kiss-ass.
There hasn’t been any as of late, so he is quiet… but like a fart brewing in your gut, he waits… he waits… he waits…

In regards to all the people who have been arrested or indicted in this investigation – they have all been caught in lies. Why were they lying if they were innocent? Obviously, they are trying to hide certain facts.
If they are innocent- then they have nothing to worry about.
Were they caught in lies? The people who interviewed Flynn said he didn’t lie, but then others threatened to destroy him and his family, so he admitted to lying. This isn’t the first time this has happened, there is much similar abuse in the system.
Such BS. And Hillary Clinton, Huma Abedin will never be charged with anything. Some justice system we’ve got.

If you want truth, you have to get it from the white house
