Roger Stone Demands Copy of Mueller Report from Judge…AND MORE

In typical Roger Stone fashion, nothing about this case is “typical”.

Roger Stone, quite simply put, is a character.  And, as such, he has been predictably wild in his dealings with Robert Mueller.

Stone, who was in close contact with Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign, has a long history of angering the Washington establishment.  His persona and his tactics fall on the swampy side of DC, as opposed to the “Deep State” side, and he’s been no stranger to legal trouble over the years.

Stone is also verbose and demanding at times, something that a judge presiding over his connections to the Robert Mueller-led “RussiaGate” probe learned the hard way this week.

Roger Stone’s defense fired a volley of legal attacks at special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s Russia investigation Friday, asking a federal judge to dismiss Stone’s indictment for lying to Congress and obstructing justice and to order that Stone receive a full unredacted copy of Mueller’s recently completed report.

“No other person, Committee, or entity has Stone’s constitutionally based standing to demand the complete, unredacted Report,” Stone’s attorneys argued on behalf of the longtime confidant of President Trump. Only then “can he determine whether the Report contains material which could be critical to his defense,” or if he was selectively prosecuted, they wrote in a series of motions.

Prosecutors have given the judge until May 30th to comply with their requests.

Stone’s trial is set to begin in November.
