It was just a matter of time. Most people had assumed that long time Donald Trump associate Roger Stone would eventually be charged in the Mueller investigation.
This morning, Robert Mueller’s office released the indictment documents, handed over by a federal grand jury on Thursday. These documents can be seen below.stone_indictment_012419
CNN reports that law enforcement officers, including officers from the FBI, approached Stone’s home in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida a little after 6AM this morning. They knocked on his door, Stone opened it, and then he was taken into custody.
The moment that the FBI converged on Stone’s Ft. Lauderdale home and arrested him, was caught on tape by CNN this morning:
