Roger Stone appeared on the Tucker Carlson show on Friday night to discuss his early morning arrest by the FBI. Stone made it clear that this entire affair is political and intended to try to get him to turn on Trump, which he says he won’t do.

Roger Stone slams Mueller indictment, says he’s prepared for the fight of his life
Former Trump adviser Roger Stone said in a Fox News interview Friday that the indictment brought against him as part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation is “thin” and is really “about silencing” him. But, Stone said, he was prepared for the fight of his life.
“There’s a war on alternative media,” he said. “There’s a war where they’re trying to criminalize political expression. There’s a war where they’re trying to criminalize free speech.”
Stone’s remarks on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” came after he was taken into custody earlier Friday and indicted on charges of obstruction, making false statements and witness tampering.
“I’m in for the fight of my life but I will not quit. I will not fold. I will not bend. I will not bear false witness against the president,” Stone said. “I intend to fight because this indictment is fabricated. This indictment is thin as can be.”
At a news conference earlier in the day, Stone vowed to fight the allegations, slamming the charges as “politically motivated.”
