Trump Associate, Roger Stone Arrested

And it could not have happened to a more deserving walking pestilence.

If you’re just wiping the sleep from your eyes, this Friday morning, you’re arising to the latest move from special counsel Robert Mueller’s office. Namely, a new arrest in the ongoing Russia probe.

Roger Stone, the longtime associate and noxious pal of Donald Trump, who saw a payday for himself in getting Donald Trump elected as president, has been arrested by federal authorities.

From CNN:

Stone is indicted on seven counts, including one count of obstruction of an official proceeding, five counts of false statements, and one count of witness tampering.

Law enforcement raided Stone’s house, and CNN witnessed uniformed and armed law enforcement approach his house just after 6 a.m. ET in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Roger Stone’s career goes all the way back to the Nixon era. He’s long been considered one of the dirtiest players in the cesspool that is politics, and anyone who has spent 5 minutes dealing with him can pick up on that, right away.

He was booted from the Trump campaign in August 2015 for questionable and offensive statements made to the press, but was widely considered to still be the little voice in Trump’s ear throughout the campaign (and beyond, if we take his word for it).

While this story is developing, Stone has been saying that he expected to be arrested, for weeks now.

It is believed that his oft-alluded to involvement with WikiLeaks, as well as the Russian hacker known as Guccifer 2.0 is the impetus for the charges against him.

Stay tuned.
