Fox News reports:
Former Trump political adviser Roger Stone has invoked the Fifth Amendment and refused to turn over documents requested by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, saying he will not appear on Capitol Hill for an interview as part of the committee’s expansive investigation into President Trump.
Stone delivered his response to Nadler this week, after the chairman sent out a slew of document requests to 81 individuals and entities as part of a sweeping probe into “alleged obstruction of justice, public corruption, and other abuses of power by President Trump.”
“Mr. Stone respectfully declines to produce any documents, and declines any potential invitation for an interview which may follow,” Stone attorney Grant Smith wrote in a letter to Nadler, obtained by Fox News.
