BREAKING: Roger Stone Speaks After Court Appearance

Published

on

Roger Stone, a longtime ally of President Donald J. Trump, spoke to reporters after his arrest at the hands of the FBI Friday morning.

Stone was formally indicted for one count of obstruction of an official proceeding, five counts of false statements, and one count of witness tampering in federal court in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. He was released on $250,000 bond.

“As I have always said, the only thing worse than being talked about is not being talked about,” Stone told reporters amidst booing from protestors. “The charges today relate in no way to Russian collusion, Wikileaks collaboration, or any other illegal act in connection with the 2016 campaign.”

“I am falsely accused of making false statements during my testimony to the House Intelligence Committee,” he continued. “That is incorrect. Any error I made in my testimony would be both immaterial, and without intent. I find it disturbing that the Special Counsel’s office would release a press release prior to informing me that I would be charged today.

Stone said that he will plead not guilty to the charges, and reiterated his support for Trump.

“There is no circumstance whatsoever in which I will bear false witness against the President,” Sone reiterated.

Stone said that he will be appearing for an arraignment in Washington, D.C. next week. Stone and his attorney both denounced the early morning “spectacle” at his home this morning, when 29FBI agents and 17 vehicles showed up at his door before dawn to arrest him. This is not normally the case for white collar crimes.

When asked by a reporter if he was hoping for a pardon if convicted, Stone responded by saying, “The only person I’ve advocated a pardon for is Marcus Garvey.”

According to CBSStone wore handcuffs and waist shackles during his court appearance. He will only be able to fly between New York City, Washington, D.C., and Florida.

Second Former Andrew Cuomo Aide Accuses Disgraced Governor of Sexual Harassment

Cuomo has refused to resign.

Published

on

A second former aide has accused beleaguered New York Governor Andrew Cuomo of sexual harassment, speaking the New York Times on Saturday.

Charlotte Bennett served as an executive assistant and health policy adviser in the Governor’s office until November of last year, and recounted a series of incidents where she was propositioned about her sex life and the governor’s preferences.

Ms. Bennett, 25, said the most unsettling episode occurred on June 5, when she was alone with Mr. Cuomo in his State Capitol office. In a series of interviews this week, she said the governor had asked her numerous questions about her personal life, including whether she thought age made a difference in romantic relationships, and had said that he was open to relationships with women in their 20s — comments she interpreted as clear overtures to a sexual relationship.”

Cuomo also allegedly questioned Bennett on her opinions of non-monogamous relationships.

I understood that the governor wanted to sleep with me, and felt horribly uncomfortable and scared,” Bennett said. “And was wondering how I was going to get out of it and assumed it was the end of my job.

Bennett is the second former Cuomo staffer to come public with accounts of sexual harassment. Lindsey Boylan, an ex-Cuomo aide who had previously spoken of toxicity in the establishment Democrat’s office. Boylan alleges that Cuomo asked her to play strip poker on a plane, that his underlings communicated he had a “crush” on her, and that the Governor would frequently touch her back and her arms.

Cuomo is currently facing a possible impeachment or censure from the New York legislature for his cover-up of the state’s disastrous nursing home scandal, in which the deaths of thousands of senior citizens were covered up in order to deflect an investigation from the Department of Justice. Leading Democrats such as Ron Kim have called for his resignation, and it may prove the new sexual harassment allegations could be the final straw.
