It’s impossible to forget how Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) went to such great lengths earlier this year to avoid being served papers in Rep. Eric Swalwell’s (D-Calif.) lawsuit in connection with the deadly Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. The antics of Brooks and his wife trying to avoid the inevitable were hilarious.
On Wednesday, self-proclaimed dirty trickster and Donald Trump confidant Roger Stone took a decidedly different approach. While he was participating in a phone interview with a St. Louis radio station Stone interrupted the program to declare that he was being delivered court documents by a process server on behalf of seven U.S. Capitol Police officers who allege that Stone and others violated their Constitutional rights.
“Hold on a second, I have a process server at my front door about to serve me in the latest lawsuit,” Stone said on “Tomorrow’s News Today with Joe Hoft & Kell Brazil.” After Stone could be heard greeting the person at the door, the process server could be heard saying, “You know what I have.”
“It’s still a fraud, doesn’t matter,” said Stone, thanking the process server. “All right, I have just been served in the Jan. 6 lawsuit — live, right here on your radio show.”
Stone was pardoned by Trump after he was convicted as part of the FBI’s probe of Russian interference in the 2016 election. He made light of the incident. “This is a big, big stack of papers, which is good, because we’re out of toilet paper,” he said, as the radio hosts laughed.
