Attorney David Wohl Offers Pro Bono Representation to Help Roger Stone Beat Robert Mueller
Guest post Jacob Wohl
Amid the predawn raid and arrest of Roger Stone based on a 7-count indictment of process crimes, Fox News contributor and attorney David Wohl has offered to represent Roger Stone free of charge.
I want Roger Stone to know I will be happy to assist in his defense.
Pro Bono. https://t.co/O5F4Go0p65

In a clear message to Mueller, leaving the courtroom this morning, Roger Stone said “I will plead not-guilty. I will defeat them in court.”

David Wohl said: “I am admitted to practice in federal court and confident that a devastating blow can be dealt to the Special Counsel following this overzealous Bin-Laden-Style raid.”
Other expert legal and law enforcement observers have pointed out the over-the-top nature of Mueller’s SWAT Team raid of Roger Stone’s home. Stone himself described the raid as “terrorizing” his wife and his dogs.
President needs to have the FBI director in front of his desk this morning explaining exactly why an American citizen was assaulted by a SWAT team with tipped off cable news cameras. He should ask for the written safety analysis that showed this was required. There isn't one.

Increasingly it would appear the special counsel is justifying its existence by rolling people up with process crimes. The crimes didn't exist before the investigation https://t.co/ZQ0Rf3qiIC

They’re doing to Stone what they did to Gen. Flynn.
Nonsense process crimes because Trump won. This is all about impeaching Trump. They’ll twist arms until they get that.
And using an entry team for non violent crimes is an intimidation tactic. Disgraceful.

It remains to be seen how CNN would have been aware of “activity in the grand jury”, when the grand jury proceedings are secret.
Roger Stone, when asked about the potential of cooperating with Mueller, told a press gaggle ”There is no circumstance under which I would plead guilty to these charges” or “bear false witness against the president.”
