Watch Roger Stone Chant “Lock Her Up”

The longtime GOP operative is the latest Trump associate to be indicted in the Russia probe.

On Friday, Roger Stone, the longtime Republican operative and friend of President Donald Trump, became the latest of the president’s associates to be indicted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

The seven charges against Stone include making false statements, obstruction of an official proceeding, and witness tampering—all of which make the following clip of the self-proclaimed “dirty trickster” leading a “lock her up” chant during the 2016 Republican national convention ironic, to say the least:

Stone was greeted with the familiar chant on his way out of a federal courthouse in Fort Lauderdale hours after his early morning arrest. He has since vowed to fight Mueller’s charges, defiantly claiming they were “thin” and “fabricated.”

THANK YOU.

We recently wrapped up the crowdfunding campaign for our ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project, and it was a smashing success. About 10,364 readers pitched in with donations averaging $45, and together they contributed about $467,374 toward our $500,000 goal.

That's amazing. We still have donations from letters we sent in the mail coming back to us, so we're on pace to hit—if not exceed—that goal. Thank you so much. We'll keep you posted here as the project ramps up, and you can join the hundreds of readers who have alerted us to corruption to dig into.
