Roger Stone is a self-proclaimed “dirty trickster” for the Republican party and has been an ally of U.S. President Donald Trump for 40 years. Stone was arrested on Friday on charges of lying to Congress about the release of stolen Democratic Party emails during the 2016 campaign. According to Reuters, the 66-year-old veteran political operative was arrested by the FBI in a predawn raid at his Florida home. Following Stone's arrest, Trump tweeted, "Greatest Witch Hunt in the History of our Country! NO COLLUSION!" Stone has been charged with seven criminal counts, including obstruction of an official proceeding, witness tampering and making false statements.
