Stone Asks Court To Suppress Evidence Against Him

The Hill reports:

Roger Stone asked a judge on Friday to suppress certain evidence in the case against him, claiming that it was improperly obtained.

The filing states that the search warrant applications about Stone showed that the FBI initially investigated him for a range of different potential crimes, including unauthorized access of a protected computer, obstruction of justice, wire fraud, attempt and conspiracy to commit wire fraud and violation of a ban on foreign contributions.

“The indictment of Roger Stone is for obstruction of Congress, lying to Congress, and witness tampering; however, the purported crimes investigated and presented to the various courts reviewing the assorted warrants were much broader and were searching for a conspiracy between Stone, the Russians, or WikiLeaks,” the filing reads.
