BREAKING: Roger Stone SLAMS J6 committee for 'categorically false' statements

"Any claim or assertion that I was involved at any time in any effort of any kind by any person or group to delay, hinder or otherwise obstruct the certification of presidential electors by the Congress, pursuant to the Constitution of the United States, is also categorically false," the statement added.

Following Thursday’s January 6 Committee hearing, Roger Stone issued a statement calling out the committee for making "false" statements regarding his actions on and around January 6, 2021.

"Any claim or assertion that I knew about, either in advance about, participated in or condoned any act — by any person or group — at or anywhere near the United States Capitol or anywhere in the District of Columbia, the United States, or Planet Earth — on January 6th, or any other date, that was either unlawful, illegal, or otherwise intended in any way to cause damage or disrupt any proceedings of Congress, or any other governmental body, is categorically false," a statement from Stone read. 

"Any claim or assertion that I was involved at any time in any effort of any kind by any person or group to delay, hinder or otherwise obstruct the certification of presidential electors by the Congress, pursuant to the Constitution of the United States, is also categorically false," the statement added. 

Stone said that nothing presented in Thursday’s hearing "contradicts any of this."

"What we did see today was a continuation of the tactic of 'guilt by association.' Just because I know someone or have met them does not constitute proof that I was aware of any impending criminal conspiracy. The committee today provided no evidence to the contrary," Stone wrote.

Stone noted a previous committee hearing, in which former Trump staff member Cassidy Hutchinson "claimed that Trump directed his Chief of Staff Mark Meadows to call both General Michael Flynn and me, purportedly to 'find out what would happen on January 6th.’"

"Hutchinson also claimed that Trump directed Meadows to make a similar call, in order to be briefed on a purported meeting held in the Willard Hotel in a supposed 'War Room.' Hutchinson further testified that these alleged calls were, in fact, completed," Stone added.

Stone called these claims "entirely false," noting that "no such phone calls ever took place," and that he wasn’t aware "of any 'War Room' in the Willard Hotel."

"Nonetheless, Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren repeated Hutchinson’s perjurious testimony again in today’s hearing," Stone said.

In the hearing, Lofgren said, "Another close associate of Donald Trump apparently knew of Mr. Trump's intentions as well," noting Stone as having a "reputation for dirty tricks."

In this video, Stone is heard saying, "let’s just hope we’re celebrating," and "The key thing to do is to claim victory.

Stone said that the video in fact said "that [Trump] should claim victory if the race for president was 'up in the air,'" not if Trump "lost."

"This contradicts the January 6th committee claim that I advocated that Trump should claim victory regardless of the outcome of the race. My comments are constitutionally protected free speech as well as sound political and public relations strategy," Stone said.

Stone also stated that he would prove that their video "appears to show me advocating violence is a fabrication," noting that everyone’s faces are obscured with masks in the video.

"How interesting that the audio matches exactly an audio released by CNN a week ago in which I cannot be seen at all. Because it is my intention to bring a $25 million defamation lawsuit against the Danish filmmakers Christoffer Guldbrandsen and Frederik Marbell, this will be proven in subsequent litigation," said Stone.

Stone also noted a video that the committee did not play, in which he told a crowd of Trump supporters on January 6 not to engage in violence.

"The continuing insistence that I served as a liaison or go-between between the Trump White House, the Trump campaign, and groups termed by the media to be “extremists” is without foundation. There are no encrypted messages, non-encrypted messages, e-mails, phone calls, or witnesses to the contrary. The committee produced none today – because there are none," said Stone.

In the hearing, Lofgren said that "we don't yet have all the relevant records of Roger Stone’s communications."

Noting Lofgren’s description of Oath Keeper Joshua James as a "close associate" of himself, Stone said that the first time he had ever met James was on January 5, 2021, noting that claims that James was in his suit at the Willard are false, and that James merely delivered a suitcase to his room.

"Because I was unable to hire off-duty D.C. police officers to provide security for me, as I had done quite legally during my pretrial motions in DC and during my trial, I accepted a voluntary security detail from the Oath Keepers," Stone said. "During that time I witnessed and heard nothing that would preview any individual’s involvement in the illegal events of January 6th. If the committee has actual evidence to the contrary, they should produce it, but they have none, and guilt by association is their obvious and transparent tactic."

Noting the filmmaker Guldbrandsen, Stone said that the man had told Danish media that he had incited violence on the evening of January 5, but Stone said that "there is no incitement to violence, and all of my statements are consistent with my First Amendment right to question the results of the 2020 election."

In regards to Lofgren calling into question Stone evoking the Fifth Amendment during his hearing, Stone said, "The committee’s selective use of me involving my Fifth Amendment rights to specific questions is duplicitous and manipulative."

"The January 6th committee continues to traffic in conspiracy theories but has yet to turn up any actual evidence or proof that I engaged in any improper activity in connection with January 6th, other than the exercise of my free speech rights which they now claim is illegal," Stone concluded.

In a statement to The Post Millennial, Stone said, “One thing the committee strangely omitted from the subpoenaed footage from the Danish film crew, who I am suing, is video from my hotel room immediately following President Trump’s speech at the Ellipse, when the Secret Service called my room offering me an armed escort to the Capitol.

"Because I found this offer questionable, I declined. But had I accepted, I would have arrived at the Capitol at the precise time of the breach. Why would the Committee not show this video?" Stone added.
