Roger Stone spoke to the media on Friday after he posted bail following his arrest in an early morning raid by the FBI.
Stone was granted release on a $250,000 signature bond after a federal magistrate judge ruled that he was not a flight risk, The Hill reported, adding, “He will also not have to pay any money as part of the bond, as long as he appears during all upcoming court proceedings.”
“There is no circumstance whatsoever under which I will bear false witness against the president, nor will I make up lies to ease the pressure on myself,” Stone said.
When asked if he thought President Donald Trump would pardon him if he was convicted, Stone answered: “The only person I’ve advocated a pardon for is Marcus Garvey.”
“Did you in any way work with the Russians to help President Trump?” Stone asked.
“Categorically not — no,” Stone responded. “Absolutely not”
“Roger, did anyone tell you to contact, in the Trump campaign, to contact WikiLeaks?” Another reporter asked.
“No, I’ve addressed that before,” Stone answered. “That is incorrect.”
