Longtime Donald Trump confidante Roger Stone is refusing to produce documents requested by members of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
“On the advice of counsel, Mr. Stone will not produce the documents requested by you in your capacity as Ranking Minority Member of the Judiciary Committee,” Stone’s defense attorneys wrote to Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA).
Feinstein had requested “communications related to hacked emails, communications with Russian hackers of Wikileaks, and communications with the Trump campaign.”
“Mr. Stone decries secrecy,” his lawyers claimed. “He will not subject himself to the innuendo of non-public proceedings. Nor will he confirm the existence of, or produce the documents of the request, for the purpose of being used in secret proceedings.”
“This reply in response to the request by you, is written with the utmost respect for the Committee and its staff,” his lawyers argued.
