Roger Stone, the longtime friend and former aide of President Donald Trump, invoked his Fifth Amendment privilege to reject providing documents and testimony under a subpoena from a U.S. Senate committee.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) revealed Stone’s stonewalling in a tweet Tuesday that contained the letter from Stone’s attorney, Grant Smith.
“Roger Stone’s attorney sent a letter this week stating Stone won’t provide documents or appear for an interview before the committee,” Feinstein tweeted.
