BREAKING: Trump associate Roger Stone’s new development in Russia probe
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by FOXNEWS.COM:
Longtime Donald Trump associate Roger Stone’s legal team announced in a letter Tuesday that Stone would assert his Fifth Amendment right not to testify or provide documents to a Senate committee investigating potential collusion between the president’s team and Russia.
“Mr. Stone’s invocation of his Fifth Amendment privilege must be understood by all to be the assertion of a Constitutional right by an innocent citizen who denounces secrecy,” Stone’s attorney, Grant Smith, said in the statement. He also called the Senate Judiciary Committee’s requests a “fishing expedition” that is “far too overboard, far too overreaching, far too wide-ranging.”
The article goes on to state the following:
It was not immediately clear if the Senate committee would work to provide criminal immunity for Stone, which could defeat his Fifth Amendment invocation by rendering his concerns of legal exposure moot.
