Roger Stone Crowdfunds Legal Bills, Seeks $500,000 From Supporters (No Charges Have Yet Been Filed)

USA Today reports:

Former Trump campaign adviser Roger Stone sent out an email Thursday asking supporters to help him raise $500,000 to clear his name of any wrongdoing in the investigation of Russian interference in last year’s presidential election.

“Friend, I’m facing a $500K price tag to clear my name of the Deep State’s baseless charges!” the flamboyant Republican consultant wrote in his fundraising appeal, which asked supporters to contribute from $25 to “even $100 or more immediately.”

Stone wrote that the “legal assault” against him has already cost him more than $100,000 in legal fees.

Stone has been banned from Twitter due to an obscene attack on CNN personalities.
