While speaking live on radio about the upcoming election in 2024, Roger Stone was interrupted and served papers regarding a Capitol riot lawsuit.
Stone was in the middle of explaining on a St. Louis radio program why it was “imperative” that Trump run again when a process server showed up at his door.
“All right, I have just been served in the January 6th lawsuit—live, right here on your radio show,” Stone said. “This is a big, big stack of papers, which is good, because we’re out of toilet paper.”
Stone was also named in a lawsuit filed on August 26 by seven Capitol Police officers that also included Donald Trump and more than two dozen entities, the Proud Boys, and Oath Keepers, accusing them of being responsible for the riot at the Capitol.
That lawsuit alleges the defendants conspired to stop Congress from confirming President Joe Biden’s Electoral College victory “through the use of force, intimidation, and threats,” violating the Ku Klux Klan Act.
Defendants’ acts violated two provisions of the federal Ku Klux Klan Act, which forbids conspiracies to use force, intimidation, and threats to prevent federal officers from doing their jobs or to injure them in the course of their work. Their acts also amounted to politically motivated acts of domestic terrorism and incitement to riot, which violated the District of Columbia Bias-Related Crimes Act. The defendants also aided and abetted assault and battery on Capitol Police officers, in violation of D.C. law.Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law
