Roger Stone is angry.
Just a day or so ago he announced that he was suing Rep Hakeem Jeffries for defamation of character. Jeffries claimed that Stone and Paul Manafort agreed to withhold evidence against Trump in exchange for pardons.
The ironic thing is if Jeffries said the same thing on the floor of the House, it would be perfectly legal.
Now, he has turned his sights on those responsible for the early morning raid at his house. He is suing the DOJ and a list of individuals for $25 million dollars.
Those he is suing, besides the DOJ, include Robert Mueller, James Comey, John Brennan, Rod Rosenstein, Jonathan Kravis, Aaron Zelinsky, Jeanie Rhee, and Michael Morando.
On page 178 of the newly released documents from the FBI it says:
“The Office’s determination that it could not charge WikiLeaks or Stone as part of the Section 1030 conspiracy was also informed by the constitutional issues that such a prosecution would present. Under the Supreme Court’s decision in Bartnicki v. Vopper, 532 U.S. 514 (2001), the First Amendment protects a party’s publication of illegally intercepted communications on a matter of public concern, even when the publishing parties knew or had reason to know of the intercepts’ unlawful origin.”
“The Office determined that it could not pursue a Section 1030 conspiracy charge against Stone for some of the same legal reasons. The most fundamental hurdles, though, are factual ones.1279 As explained in Volume I, Section III.D.1, supra, Corsi’s accounts of his interactions with Stone on October 7, 2016 are not fully consistent or corroborated.
