Roger Stone Rejects Jan 6 Panel’s Subpoena

Roger Stone, a Republican political consultant, is refusing to testify before the House Select Committee investigating the Jan 6 Capitol Riot. Stone communicated through his lawyer that he is invoking the Fifth Amendment in declining to testify.

Fox News reports:

“In response to the recently served subpoena from the Select Committee, Mr. Stone has directed me to advise you that, as further discussed below, pursuant to the rights afforded him by the Fifth Amendment to the Constitution, he declines to be deposed or produce documents,” Stone attorney Grant J. Smith wrote to the committee.

Smith added that the Select Committee’s demand for documents is “overreaching” and concluded the request is too “wide-ranging to be deemed anything other than a fishing expedition.”

“Moreover, responding to the extensive requests requires the preparation of a detailed index and log describing the contents of the production, which in and of itself would be protected from disclosure by the U.S. Constitution,” the letter continued. “Thus given that Mr. Stone has been characterized in the press as under investigation by the DOJ and the FBI, responding to the document demand, which is plainly designed to elicit information about the existence of potentially incriminating evidence, would amount to a testimonial act, defeating the privilege being asserted.”

The letter also stated that the committee’s goal of examining events leading up to the January 6th riot “falsely implies that the exercise of First Amendment rights of freedom of speech and association and the right to petition the government for redress of grievances caused the illegal acts of January 6.”

During an interview with Tucker Carlson, Stone harshly pushed back against claims he is somehow involved in the events of Jan. 6th, noting that he did not attend President Trump’s speech that day.

THE NEW DEMOCRAT ART WORLD, YES,THAT’S RIGHT WE HAVE A PRESIDENT WHO DOES NOT MEAN WHAT HE SAYS, AND DOES NOT MEAN WHAT’S BEEN SAID, HIS PRIOR QUALIFICATIONS FOR THIS POSITION WERE RAPING BEE HIVES TO INCREASE THE SIZE OF HIS MANHOOD, LETS NOT FORGET THOSE YEARS OF EXPERIENCE,TRAINING BIG FOOT, HOW TO USE TOILET PAPER, WITH ACCOMPLISHMENTS LIKE THAT, WE ARE LUCKY TO HAVE HIM AS OUR PRESIDENT. HAD THE DOJ HIRE ANOTHER 50 LAWYERS ALL TO PROTECT HUNTER’S ART, WANT HIS BUYERS PROTECTED UNDER NATIONAL SECURITY DIRECTIVES WHICH ALLOWS US TO KEEP THE MONEY IN SECRET, NO IT’S NOT MONEY LAUNDERING, TO AVOID TAXES,THE SMARTEST MAN WE KNOW TOLDS US THAT.

This is so damn funny, but wasaaaay to close to the truth!! 😂. Too bad our American public isn’t that smart any more or they might have picked up on some of this!! Yeah, it’s just easier to believe that old Clown 🤡 in the White House that farts in front of foreign dignitaries and frequently gets lost not only in his mind, but also where he physically is!
Thanks for the creativity!👍👍

Wow! Do you smell the “s w e a t” pouring off Pelosi and her incestful Dems?! They are so desperate to destroy anything and anyone remotely DJT!! The real panic begins when the 2022 election finds more GOP and less “wetting-their-pants” Dems! It’s coming!!

All persons working close to President Trump need to read exactly what Roger Stone did when he was served by the DDD (Demented Dunce Dems) to appear about the Jan 6 break in (which Pelosi played a huge part in supplying her Attack Dogs, BLM and Antifa dressed like Trump Supporters). Everything Stone’s lawyer conveyed is legal and there is absolutely nothing that the DDDs can do about it! Stone’s lawyer is one sharp cookie!! But, of course, he is dealing with the often not very smart DDDs!

It’s been a Pelosi fishing expedition from the start and for what? Spite. That’s it. The only reason for 4 years of attacks, suits, impeachments was for spite because he beat the wicked witch. His successes were monumental but dems didn’t care because of spite. Pelosi makes the lowest level of pond scum look a higher life form.

I think there now exists a crime in the waste of considerable government financial assets, personnel assigned to other than fruitful activity and chaos in particularly sensitive and hazardous times. What has been so far done, should be well more than needed to investigate THE CRIME perpetrated in continuously launching .investigations which have previously been proven to be frivolous, and based upon personal animus. Just for grins, how about we get a couple of honest, uncorrupted (if any such exist there) and ask them to find out who is behind these accusations and unConstitutional actions.
