GOP dirty trickster and longtime Donald Trump political advisor Roger Stone is facing new legal problems even after his Trump commuted his prison sentence.
The Department of Justice on Friday filed a civil lawsuit against Stone that alleges fraud and argues Stone needs to pay $2 million.
Here is the Twitter thread posted by Reuters reporter Brad Heath on the new lawsuit:
DOJ says Stone and his wife moved $1 million to their LLC in 2018-19, then had the LLC pay "a substantial amount of… https://t.co/JpDlBFMCaY— Brad Heath (@Brad Heath)1618609519.0

Republicans in Congress are facing intense backlash for launching a caucus organized around Anglo-Saxon heritage.
"A nascent 'America First Caucus' in Congress linked to Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) and Paul Gosar (R-AZ) has been distributing materials calling for a 'common respect for uniquely Anglo-Saxon political traditions' and a return to architectural style that 'befits the progeny of European architecture.' Reps. Barry Moore (R-Ala.) and Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) have also agreed to join the group," Punchbowl News reported Friday, citing an email invitation.
"We've been covering Congress for a long time, and this is some of the most nakedly nativist rhetoric we've ever seen," Punchbowl noted.
Here's some of what people were saying:

More details are emerging about the mass shooting at at an Indianapolis FedEx facility that occurred late Thursday evening.
"Indianapolis police on Friday afternoon identified the suspect as 19-year-old Brandon Hole, who was last employed by FedEx in 2020, said Deputy Chief Craig McCartt," CNN reported Friday. "Hole was found dead of a gunshot wound that appeared to be self-inflicted, McCartt said. The suspect was known to federal and local authorities, and a relative reached out to authorities warning about that person's potential for violence, according to three law enforcement sources briefed on the matter."
McCartt said a gun was seized in a 2020 incident.
"Investigators are trying to determine the motive and were searching what they believe is the suspected gunman's home, FBI special agent in charge Paul Keenan told reporters late Friday morning," CNN reported. "The mass shooting is the country's deadliest since 10 people were killed March 22 at a grocery store in Boulder, Colorado."
"FedEx officials have confirmed that Mr. Hole was a former employee at the facility." - Craig McCartt, Deputy Chief… https://t.co/Xh9bgpLV5p— BNC (@BNC)1618607519.0
