Republican strategist Roger Stone has filed a motion to show cause to determine if the nature of his sealed indictment was violated by the media’s presence at his much-hyped early morning arrest at his Florida home. A CNN reporter from the nation’s capital was present at the Florida arrest.

“Defendant Roger J. Stone, Jr., requests a show cause order to determine whether the Court’s Order sealing the indictment of Roger J. Stone until his arrest, was violated by the premature release of a draft copy of the sealed indictment, enabling news media to attend and witness Stone’s 6 a.m. arrest,” the order states.

FBI - Roger - Stone - Am - January

“The FBI arrested Roger Stone at 6:06 a.m. on January 25, 2019. At that time the indictment remained subject to the Court’s Order sealing it from public disclosure. At 4:58 a.m. a news crew and truck arrived at Mr. Stone’s residence and set up a camera on the street in front ofMr. Stone’s house, obviously awaiting his arrest. The FBI arrived while the camera crew was on the street. At 6:11 a.m., prior to Mr. or Mrs. Stone calling counsel, a reporter for the same news outlet as the camera crew called counsel and informed him that Mr. Stone had been arrested. At 6:22 a.m., the same reporter sent counsel a text message attaching a draft copy of the still sealed indictment. (See Exhibit 1). The copy of the unsigned indictment provided by the reporter appears to have come from the Special Counsel’s Office,” the motion states.

Here’s the motion filed by Stone’s attorney:

The CNN reporter present at Stone’s early-morning arrest lives in Washington, D.C., not Florida.

Stone’s neighbor, former NFL wide receiver Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson, was disturbed by the arrest of his “neighbor Roger.”
