And the hits just keep on coming. Roger Stone, a key ally of Donald Trump, was arrested on seven charges as part of the Robert Mueller inquiry. The indictment alleges that Stone made multiple attempts to contact Wikileaks through a middle-man about documents stolen from the DNC and the Hillary Clinton Presidential campaign, and passed on information to Trump’s campaign about said documents. Stone has been arrested on seven charges of obstruction, witness tampering, and making false statements. He was arrested in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and will hopefully appear in court later today.

Mueller’s indictment alleges that Stone made ‘multiple false statements’ regarding his interactions with Wikileaks and ‘falsely denied possessing records that contained evidence of these interactions’, as well as having ‘attempted to persuade a witness to provide false testimony to and withhold pertinent information from the investigations.’ The indictment also alleges Stone ‘knowingly and intentionally corruptly persuaded and attempted to corruptly persuade another person […] to influence, delay, and prevent the testimony of any person in an official proceeding.’

According to CNN, ‘a number of law enforcement vehicles with silent sirens flashing pulled in front of Stone’s home on a darkened Ft. Lauderdale street just after 6 a.m. Friday morning. About a dozen officers with heavy weapons and tactical vests fanned out across Stone’s lawn.’

Twitter responded accordingly.
