Roger Stone spoke to CNN while exiting a Federal courthouse in Florida following his arrest by the FBI.
Roger Stone vowed to fight the charges brought by special counsel Robert Mueller and said he would refuse to testify against President Donald Trump.
“I will plead not guilty to these charges. I will defeat them in court,” the longtime Trump ally and Republican political operative told reporters gathered outside a federal courthouse in Florida after his arrest early Friday morning. “I believe this is a politically motivated investigation.”
“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,” he said, sometimes being drowned out by cheers from supporters and chants of “lock him up” from protesters outside the courthouse. “I look forward to being fully and completely vindicated.”
