Roger Stone, longtime adviser to President Trump, was arrested this morning on seven counts by the FBI. After being released on a $250,000 bond, Stone publicly promised to fight all criminal charges filed against him, according to the New York Post.
Some of the counts filed against Stone included making false statements and witness tampering. The charges are a part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe and relate to Mr. Stone because of his testimony and communications about the thousands of Democratic emails released by Wikileaks during the 2016 campaign.
Once released on his bond, Roger Stone spoke to the media and vowed to fight all the criminal charges filed against him.
“There is no circumstance whatsoever under which I will bear false witness against the president, nor will I make up lies to ease the pressure on myself,” Stone said outside federal court in Fort Lauderdale.
“Any error I made in my testimony would be immaterial and without intent,” he added.
Roger Stone is set to be arraigned on charges next in a Washington, DC court.
