Former Trump adviser Roger Stone condemned the raid at his home in Fort Lauderdale, calling it “over the top” and saying that the FBI sent less men to “protect our compound in Benghazi,” Fox News informed.
Stone pleaded not guilty to the felony charges tied to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe and referenced the attack in Benghazi, Libya.
Stone is accused of lying to the lawmakers, engaging in witness tampering and obstructing a congressional investigation.
He appeared on “The Ingraham Angle” and challenged the claim that he inquired about contacting WikiLeaks in October 2016 to release the emails of Hillary Clinton campaign manager John Podesta to coincide with the release of the notorious “Access Hollywood” tape of Donald Trump and TV host Billy Bush.
Another person who was also referred in the Stone indictment is the conservative author James Corsi, who Stone allegedly used as a connection to WikiLeaks.
Corsi denied this connection, saying that he has nothing to do with WikiLeaks or Julian Assange.
The charges do not accuse Stone of collusion with Russia or ties with WikiLeaks on the publication of the democratic emails, but rather say that he misled lawmakers about his pursuit of those communications and interest in them.
Corsi stated that he will gladly testify at Stone’s trial and warned him that he should be well prepared, as Mueller’s team has spent quite a lot on resources in the Russia probe.
“Roger should go in there with the full understanding that he will not be able to dodge the evidence that I’m sure Mueller has,” Corsi said in an interview.
