Steve Martin's Portrayal Of Roger Stone Is Hysterical On 'SNL' Cold Open

Supporters of former Trump associate Roger Stone, who pleaded not guilty to seven counts in federal court in D.C. Tuesday, are gathering at a rally outside of his house in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Tuesday evening.

Special counsel Robert Mueller and the United States attorney for the District of Columbia have accused Stone of lying to congressional investigators about his communications regarding WikiLeaks' publication of stolen emails meant to damage Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign in 2016.

Mueller unveiled the charges against Stone on Friday, accusing him of seeking information about hacked Democratic Party emails at the direction of an unidentified senior Trump campaign official and taking pains to keep his efforts a secret. "I would've been able to wear a suit and tie for my mugshot, it would've looked a lot better". Stone has been charged with obstructing justice, lying to Congress and witness tampering.

"Just hours prior to the raid, Roger Stone had a gathering at his home with very influential people", Ryan said. US intelligence agencies say the emails were stolen by Russian Federation.

Stone, a self-proclaimed "dirty trickster" and Republican political operative since the days of the Watergate scandal that forced his former boss President Richard Nixon to resign in 1974, was released on a $250,000 bond after his arrest. Less than an hour after the tape leaked in October 2016, WikiLeaks began dumping emails Russian Federation stole from Hillary Clinton campaign chair John Podesta, which, while they contained no actual new scandals, muddied the waters of the overall reporting climate in Trump's favor.

It was after that release that a senior Trump campaign official was directed to contact Stone to find out about any other upcoming leaks and what other information WikiLeaks had on Clinton, prosecutors said in Mueller's new indictment.

Stone told Fox's Sean Hannity that he's being silenced because he supports Donald Trump.

"I think to a great deal, this is meant to silence me", Stone reiterated, adding that he has "great affection" for President Trump and his family.

He said they went after Stone with this kind of "firepower" to intimidate him and to send a message to the public that Stone must be a "bad guy". "I will defeat them in court". Stone has previously denied that he ever bullied other witnesses to change their testimony, which is another allegation he faces. Tapper said, "Roger Stone is being taken to prison where he'll probably enjoy being raped because I've heard he's one of them homo-sex-shiles, yuk, yuk, yuk".

Mueller's team and lawyers with the US attorney's office for the District of Columbia are jointly prosecuting the case against Stone.
