nearvideo-judge rules that Roger stone is not allowed to publicly speak about his case, no third parties or surrogates
Roger stone does not speak to the media as he left the court building with a new gag to talk to ban him about his case publicly.
The former trump political consultant Roger stone has invoked the Fifth Amendment and refused to turn over documents that the House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, who says he is not displayed on Capitol Hill for an interview as part of the Committee’s extensive investigation into President Trump.
Stone delivered his answer to the Nadler this week, after the Chairman sent a series of document requests to 81 individuals and entities as part of a sweeping probe into the “alleged obstruction of justice, public corruption and other abuses of power by President Trump.”
TOP-TRUMP-PROBE TARGETS DEADLINE miss IN Rousing DOCUMENT REQUEST
“Mr. stone respectfully, to produce all of the documents, and disclaims any potential invitation for an interview, which you can follow,” stone’s attorney, Grant Smith wrote in a letter to Nadler, the of Fox News. “The production of documents that may respond to this “fishing expedition” request would, without doubt, protected by a testimonial act by the US Constitution.”
He added that Stone’s “Fifth Amendment rights must be understood by all, the assertion of a Constitutional right by an innocent citizen who is just defending his innocence, and who denounces the allusions of secrecy for the purposes of the promotion.”
Stone is facing legal problems in front of others. In January, he pleaded not guilty, obstruction of justice, witness tampering, and making false statements to the Congress as part of the Special Counsel, to Robert Mueller’s investigation into the Russian interference and possible collusion with trump on the campaign staff as part of the 2016 presidential elections.
But he is far from the only Person with the declining cooperation with Nadler probe. The majority of the individuals and groups targeted as part of Nadler’s investigation, failed to respond to the Monday deadline, the document calls for, although the talks are apparently in progress. Nadler has said, other people have agreed to send documents.
But several targets have been vocal about their concerns with the investigation.
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, also has its signals likely to be resistance to the requirements. Assange’s lawyer Barry Pollack told Fox News in a statement Thursday that Assange “is not yet the Committee has responded to the request.”
“The First amendment of the Constitution is determined that an investigation by the Congress should not start by issuing requests to journalists for the documents in relation to their news gathering,” he said.
Nadler sent the request to move to Assange through WikiLeaks to publish E-Mails stolen from the Democrats in the election of 2016.
The former trump campaign aide Michael Caputo told Fox News that to respond while he was the first of 81 goals, he told the Committee that he wanted one of the documents. He has no intention of further cooperation.

In addition to Caputo, Nadler verse requests sent to the members of the family Trump how Donald Trump Jr, Eric Trump and Jared Kushner; former administration figures like the former chief of the General staff, Reince Priebus, former national security Advisor, Michael Flynn, former attorney General Jeff Sessions, and former spokesperson for the hope Hicks; together with trump-campaign figures such as Brad Parscale and Corey Lewandowski.
The probe itself cast a pretty wide net, drilling deep into virtually every aspect of trump management and business ventures, as well as his connections to organisations ranging from the National Rifle Association (NRA) on WikiLeaks.
Nadler letters to Trump’s oldest sons asked questions about the happenings in the White house, after her father was elected, including the dismissal of FBI Director James Comey and discussions of the occupation of the Special Counsel, Robert Miller.
Several other persons in connection with the Trump organization have been sent, and letters, including the Trump organization, All of the Weis Selberg, chief financial officer, and Rhona Graff, Trump’s longtime assistant. It is, among other things, the company’s representatives were asked to document over “a loan, financing or investment from the Russian Federation, Russian AU pair, in each of the Russian business, or any other Russian unit in the Trump organization.”
Those that responded include: the former trump campaign adviser to George Papadopoulos, the former Trump national security adviser J. D. Gordon; NRA; Russian lobbyist Rinat Akhmetshin, the meeting at the infamous 2016, the Trump Tower; the former trump political consultant Sam Nunberg, a former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon; Trump’s inaugural committee chair Tom Barrack; and the 58th Presidential Inaugural Committee.
