Trump’s associate, Roger Stones arrested on seven-count charges

Roger Stones, an associate of US President Donald Trump, has been arrested on Friday.

The American political consultant was arrested on seven-count charges, including obstruction of an official proceeding, making false statements and witness tampering, according to the office of Mueller, who is conducting the Russia investigation.

FBI agents arrived at Stone’s home in Fort Lauderdale, Florida early Friday to take him into custody, okay gathered.

It was the first move in months by the special prosecutor probing Russian collusion in the 2016 US election and whether Trump and his people tried to obstruct justice.

One agent pounded on the door and said, “FBI. Open the door”, CNN reports.

Stone was expected to appear in court in Florida on Friday morning.
