The online crowdfunding legal defense fund for Roger Stone, 66, met its $100,000 target on March 15. It was begun on Dec. 3, on the fundraising website GoFundMe.
While $100,000 may sound like a lot, it is fraction of what Stone will need to pay for his trial and a fraction of what he has already spent defending himself from bogus charges piled on him by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
His friend, Michael Caputo, who set up the crowdfunding page, estimates Stone will need more than $2 million to be able to fight the false charges.
Stone’s trial is set for Nov. 5, before federal Judge Amy Berman Jackson, a staunch Democrat and well-known anti-Trump member of the judiciary.
A gag order prevents Stone from publicly discussing his criminal case, but he is permitted to raise money through crowdfunding for his defense.
Stone’s “Guts Fund” goal was to raise $100,000 toward Stone’s legal bills. It took four months to accomplish the task.
Caputo, who was also targeted by Mueller, but not charged, and who had success in crowdfunding his own legal defense, said he plans to launch another crowdfunding page for Stone when it gets closer to trial.
Jackson’s unconstitutional gag order has severely hurt Stone financially since his work is to write and discussing politics publicly in articles, books and interviews. He had a daily, extremely popular online show on InfoWars which was canceled due to his legal troubles.
Stone was arrested in a predawn raid at his Florida home by a herd of armed FBI agents in late January, much as “if he was a kingpin of a drug cartel.”
It was peculiar that CNN news cameras happened to be on the scene for the Orwellian arrest could be televised to the American public.
Stone’s most recent book “The Myth of Russian Collusion” is now on sale.
The GoFundMe page deposited money directly into the Roger Stone Legal Defense Fund, administered by Tampa, Florida, accounting firm Robert Watkins & Co.
Stone was praised by Trump for vowing never to falsely “testify against” the president to weasel out of the false charges.
“Nice to know that some people still have ‘guts!’” Trump tweeted on Dec. 3.
For a brief time, Stone was a consultant for Nxivm, but quit after he said he realized the group had unrealistic goals. He repeatedly called this writer, when he was still in the employ of Keith Raniere, to tell him that Raniere was a fraud and possibly a conman.

You’re clearly a Trump supporter and aside from this you’re not in your right mind as you often go off topic and into the deep end. Get yourself together. Stop posting useless content and stay focused on the wrongs of nxivm, Frank.
A lot of people are clearly Trump supporters, he was elected President, remember? Are you telling Frank what to post on his own website? If you don’t like it, then leave or STFU. LOL
Trump DOJ started the NXIVM prosectuion fool. You are clearly an Obama-Clinton lackey who didn’t give a shit about NXIVM because they were comrades in lawlessness. Here is a tip for you little snowflake….if you don’t like an article, skip past it.
One day Frank should explain why after Roger Stone, a good friend, warned Frank about Nxivm Frank chose to ingnore the warning and walk right into the fire.
I am starting to wonder if Frank thrives on adversity and danger.
Frank has already explained that. Look it up.
Wasn’t there a very recent post about that by Frank, that has now disappeared?
I wanted to ask why if, as the piece reported, NXIVM told Stone they were offering $1 million to manipulate the justice system to go after Toni, why he didn’t report that to authorities – and perhaps warn Toni – rather than just suggesting that they find a lawyer with the right connections.
I recall the story regarding Stone quitting after being asked to do something a lawyer should do, not a consultant, but don’t recall an amount of money being offered. I doubt Frank took down the post. i don’t think the story was within the last few months, either. As I recall, it was several months ago. Roger could have gone to law enforcement and warned Toni, but he’s not what I consider a standup kind of guy. But that doesn’t automatically make him a criminal, either.
Frank said he needed the money. His owed like hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxes or fines on his One Niagara building. Frank was paid thousands of dollars by NXIVM to assassinate the character of people like Joe O’Hara and to recruit people into the sex cult for Keith by rebranding the cult as something other than a cult. Of course Frank didn’t know he was being used to recruit sex slaves or how evil the cult was until he was indicted in 2015 and that’s when he started publicly going after Keith and Clare. Keith was able to fool Frank for over 8 years so it’s not hard to believe that Keith fooled people like Barbara especially since she was in love with him.
Frank wasn’t fooled by Raniere for more than a few months. Frank did go after Raniere mostly after Raniere sued Frank and got the Feds to go after him.
People who manage to put up a website that asks for donations for a legal fund one year PRIOR to the arrest are many things, but not innocent.
Why is it automatically determined someone is guilty when they are being investigated? Are you from Russia? Collusion? LOL
Wow, the guy who accuses Gillibrand assumes this guy is innocent. That requires a lot of dubblethink.
I guess he is a big of a hypocrite as you and your fellow alt left neo lib shills
What did I accuse Sillybrand of, besides being as stupid as a rock?
Why? It is clear the Mueller regime is trying to bankrupt people. That is how your loving government has worked for years. little fella. The state has virtually unlimited resources to prosecute. They drain people finacially dry regardless if the are guilty or NOT.
One tactic Mueller hatchet men uses with his blessing is overwhelm the $ resources of the victim, think Gen Flynn. He has to sell his house in dc and the Mueller thugs then told Flynn they would put Flynn’s son in jail. His son had zero to do with anything. These tactics are inhuman. Cohen was threatened by Muellers thugs that they would put his wife in jail for 30 years so some say. This is thug rule used by top lawyers of fed govt.
Interesting that his long-time partner in crime (now a convicted felon) ,Manafort, has been described by his own daughter as being responsible for deaths in the Ukraine, and his own daughters have disowned Manafort.
Why would anyone assume a man who idealizes Nixon is innocent?
Because that’s how the Constitution works, presumed innocent until proven guilty.
Of course in the eyes of the law he’s innocent until proven guilty. That’s the way the law works in order to protect everyones rights.
My earlier rhetorical question was meant to demonstrate what type of belief system Stone appears (by his own actions) to hold – he idolizes a CRIMINAL. That fact alone speaks volumes about his character.
You should keep your rhetorical questions off the blog and inside your cluttered mind Flowers. Your irratic posts speak volumes about your character. You should keep that in mind before replying.
And you could go fuck yourself conservative snoflake
Tricky Dick, Scott.
Stone worked on Nixon’s campaign way back, while he was in college, and he has Nixon’s face on his back. IMO, when you tattoo someones likeness on your body, it means you greatly admire this person.
Frank, why do you allow vile comments directed at me, such as telling me to go fuck myself? I haven’t said anything like that to these diehard Trump supporters.
Wow from the 70s and President Nixon. Nixon was a man of honor in relation to Slick Willy and the ultra corrupt Muslim brotherhood operative Hussein Obama. And the biggest criminal of them all was taken out by President Trump and she and her dirty criminal enterprise foundation are under grand jury investigation and will be prosecuted. Sleep well snowflake, it is only going to get worse for you and your fellow alt leftist neo liberals
Meanwhile, your fellow alt left conspiracy kooks have their collective snow flake melt down
It reminds me of the meltdown after Trump beat Hellary THE Horrible in the election.
and he quotes the most biased network. how about quoting a neutral one
Yea he should have picked cnn or MSNBC. You libtards wouldn’t know biased when it hits your empty heads. Melt away snowflake.
Which CRIMINAL are you referring to?
On second look, I think the “go fuck yourself” was directed at a conservative *snoflake*…too many snowflake insults to keep track of. Lol
Nixon was never convicted of a crime. I’m not a Roger Stone fan, but having a Nixon tattoo doesn’t automatically mean Stone is guilty of a crime. He got the tattoo because he admired Nixon’s reputation for coming back from defeats.
Let me clean up some of your bullshit
Clinton dirty trickster, Sidney Blumenthal, and Clinton crony and oligarch, Viktor Pinchuk, pedaled bogus charges against Paul Manafort using Ukrainian intelligence. Pinchuk gave the Clinton’s $10 Million to buy approval of a coup in Ukraine against an unpopular, but democratically elected Head of State. Clinton’s Charity Ties With Oligarchs Behind Ukrainian Coup Revealed
Blumenthal is the same thug, who Hillary’s emails show, invented the lie that the attack on our mission in Benghazi was caused by an anti-Islamic video shown online in Turkey. Sid was also caught trying to line his pockets in a Libyan side deal that he never disclosed to Hillary Rodham Clinton when he was urging the toppling of Gaddafi.
Blumenthal thinks he’s Ted Sorensen, but he’s Al Capone. When the Pinchuk thugs found nothing legitimate regarding Manafort’s entirely legal campaign services in three democratically held elections, they simply had Ukrainian intelligence create a co-ledger with correspondence to no known financial transfer records. There is no evidence admissible in a court that Manafort took any illegal payments. The “ledger” found at some party clubhouse was most likely fabricated by the Pinchuk-owned-Ukrainian Intelligence Service.
Now you know why the phony Mueller investigation went after Manafort on crap that was done many years prior to him being a plant in the Trump campaign
Is this who flowers is… a troll from the leftist deep state media?
Unless the evidence was illegally obtained, if you commit the crime, you do the time.
Oh my….You’ve convinced me, Reality!!
I wonder why Audrey Strauss was recently hired…..hey…wasn’t she involved in prosecuting Trump’s former lawyer?
Aubrey Strauss LOLOLOL Sheer deep state desperation. Like everything else they try it will amount to nothing. The definition of insanity….look it up Denny….it fits you so well…Aubrey Strauss hahahaha
Hey Denny for you and your fellow neo lib conspiracy theory kooks
MSNBC’s top Russiagate conspiracy theorist Rachel Maddow burst into tears on Friday — after the past two years of her reporting was revealed to be nonsense. https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2019/03/conspiracy-theorist-rachel-maddow-cries-on-air-over-mueller-report-and-announcement-that-there-will-be-no-more-indictments/
What will it whine about now that it spent TWO LONG YEARS LYING about this
I dont think liberals will have time to lie, they will be too busy watching this story unfold….and laughing at Roger and Paul, of course. It’s so satisfying to see karma finally bite their criminal asses.
Oh – and we’ll also be having a good laugh as Roger’s little flunkie, Jacob, gets a well-deserved ass-kicking.
Fun fun fun!
Too bad, Dennis, you are the flunkie. Liberals worship the LIE. Yes, toots, we are seeing the story unfold. The Trump train is moving on and gathering steam as more people are awakened to the real enemy. Democraps and their evil media henchmen. However they are gong to face justice.
If someone is worshiping lies in recent history it is the degenerate conman acting ‘presidential’
Actually anonymous liberalism is synonymous with lies. You little liberal snowflakes are melting as the President is vindicated and the leftist lies about Russian collusion are being exposed as well as their other lies and actual crimes. You libtards can stick it where the sun don’t shine
I agree flowers and this video really backs up what you say. Keep up the good work
Great video. Although disgusting to look at the vile demon. I am sure our little petunia flowers will enjoy it.
