ROGER STONE has been released!
Amid Roger Stone’s arrest, reports are indicating that he has been released on the terms of a $250,000 bond and limited travel.
As reported by abcnews.go.com
President Donald Trump’s longtime friend and veteran political operative Roger Stone has been indicted on seven counts, including one count of obstruction of an official proceeding, five counts of false statements and one count of witness tampering in special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into possible collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign during the 2016 presidential election.
Stone was arrested and appeared in court in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, late Friday morning. The indictment was filed on Thursday.
Stone appeared in handcuffs before U.S. Magistrate Judge Lurana S. Snow at the federal courthouse and was released on $250,000 bond. His travel was restricted to Florida, Virginia, New York and Washington, D.C.
Federal agents also obtained a search warrant for Stone’s New York home – described as a “spacious two bedroom” apartment in Harlem.
Agents were spotted Friday taking hard drives and other evidence from the apartment. In the court documents, the special counsel’s office wrote that after WikiLeaks began releasing internal Democratic National Committee emails in the summer of 2016, an unidentified “senior Trump campaign official was directed to contact Stone about any additional releases and what other damaging information [Wikileaks] had regarding the Clinton Campaign.”
