Roger Stone, long time friend and former top campaign official for the Trump 2016 campaign, has been indicted by the FBI on 7 counts. He was arrested in the early morning hours, today, Friday, at his home in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Of the 7 counts, some include: obstruction, making false statements, and witness tampering in Robert Mueller's investigation case into Russian collusion.
President Trump as well as Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders spoke or tweeted out about Stone's arrest. POTUS Trump tweeted this morning:
Then Press Secretary Sanders made a statement to the press that "this has nothing to do with the president, nothing to do with the White House".
Roger Stone was released this morning on a $250k bond. He left a Fort Lauderdale courthouse this afternoon and appeared to mimic Nixon by throwing up the peace signs.
