Roger Stone’s Wife Details ‘Terrifying Morning’
By Brian Freeman
Roger Stone’s wife Nydia sent out an email over the weekend describing the pre-dawn raid on their house in Ft. Lauderdale last month in which her husband was arrested, calling it “the most terrifying thing I have ever experienced.”
The email was also a fundraising letter urging the public to contribute to her husband’s legal defense fund.
Nydia Stone said that she woke up the morning of the raid only when two FBI agents burst into their bedroom and demanded she get out of bed at gunpoint.
She said she was them marched out to the street barefoot wearing only a night gown, where she had to stand next to her handcuffed husband.
She said the FBI used 29 armed agents, 17 vehicles, a helicopter and two amphibious units in the raid, even though her husband has no previous criminal record and was charged with non-violent crimes.
After the FBI took her husband away, Nydia Stone said she was allowed to dress under the supervision of a female FBI agent, who also watched her in the bathroom.
She said FBI agents tore through their home for seven hours and removed her husband’s computers and iPads, as well as her computer.
She said all the charges against her husband have been fabricated in an attempt to force him to turn on President Donald Trump, who she said has been their friend for 40 years.
She said her family’s income has been destroyed by two years of constant investigation into every aspect of her family and said the defense fund is needed for the $2 million it costs to pay lawyers.
She emphasized that stories describing them as worth millions of dollars are false and that they are urgently in need of the public’s help.
