Roger Stone decried the Mueller indictment against him as ‘thin’ and ‘fabricated’ and said he’s gearing up for a fierce legal battle as he hit the talk show circuit hours after being arrested at his Florida home.

Speaking to Fox News’ Tucker Carlson on Friday night, the former confidant to President Donald Trump declared: ‘I intend to plead not guilty. I believe I will be vindicated.

‘The indictment is thin, indeed. So what is this about? It’s about silencing me.’

Stone continued: ‘There is a war on alternative media. There is a war where they are trying to criminalize political expression. There is a war where they are trying to criminalize free speech.’

FBI agents clad in bulletproof vests arrived at Stone’s Fort Lauderdale mansion with guns drawn on Friday morning after Special Counsel Robert Mueller unsealed a seven-count indictment from a grand jury impaneled in his sprawling probe of Russian election meddling.

Mueller asked a judge Thursday to keep Stone’s indictment sealed until his arrest, aguing that ‘law enforcement believes that publicity resulting from disclosure will increase the risk of the defendant fleeing and destroying (or tampering with) evidence.’

The indictment does not charge him with crimes directly related to Russia or with conspiracy to skew the 2016 election, but with what legal experts call ‘process crimes’ – lying to investigators and trying to tamper with their work after being asked about contacts he claimed to have with WikiLeaks around the time the anti-privacy group published thousands of stolen emails that embarrassed Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
