By now I’m sure you have heard about the terrifying pre-dawn raid on the house in Ft. Lauderdale where I live with my husband Roger Stone.
A little before 6am, twenty-nine assault weapon wielding FBI agents in full tactical gear, and wearing night vision goggles, surrounded our home. Because I am hearing impaired and I was sleeping, I did not hear the commotion when an FBI agent pounded on the door demanding my husband open it. I did not know he had been handcuffed and taken into custody.
I woke up only when two FBI agents burst into our bedroom and demanded that I get out of bed at gunpoint. I was marched out to the street in front of our house wearing only a night gown and in bare feet. I was instructed to stand next to my husband who was handcuffed and also barefooted. I am not charged with any crime.
This has to be the most terrifying thing I have ever experienced, as FBI agents swarmed into our home after announcing they had a search warrant.
My husband has no previous criminal record, not even a speeding ticket. He is charged and pled not guilty to seven non-violent process crimes. We do not own a gun and my husband’s passport had actually expired. The idea that he is a danger to anyone or a flight risk was disproved hours later when a federal magistrate released him on a surety bond.
The FBI used twenty nine agents, seventeen vehicles, including two armored vehicles, a helicopter and two amphibious units because our rented home backs onto a canal. Every agent was carrying an AK-47 as well as a sidearm. This is a much larger force than used to capture and kill Bin Laden or arrest El Chapo. It must have cost U.S. taxpayers a half a million dollars.
Even more humiliating, for some odd reason, a CNN camera crew had arrived at our home only fifty minutes before the FBI strike force and was allowed to film the assault on our home and my husband’s arrest. If my husband was considered “dangerous” why was a CNN film crew in position 10 yards from our front door? How convenient that the CNN producer at our home is a former special assistant to FBI director James Comey!
My parents came from Cuba. I can understand how these kind of police state tactics can happen in a communist country, but it is hard to believe that the FBI Director and acting Attorney General would allow this kind of brutal assault on a U.S. citizen with no prior criminal record and charged only with non-violent process crimes here in the United States.
After the FBI took my husband away, I was allowed to dress under the supervision of a woman FBI agent who even had to watch me while I used the bathroom. I was not allowed to touch my cell phone even though I could see that my children and grandchildren were calling to see if I was alright. FBI agents tore through every square inch of our home and removed my husbands computers and iPads. They also took my computer which means they got many beautiful pictures of my grandchildren.
I wasn’t allowed to turn on the television so I did not see the angry and hateful mob that gathered outside the federal courthouse in Ft Lauderdale, where I later learned that my husband was placed in hand and foot shackles and held in a holding cell after being fingerprinted and having his mug shot photos taken. The FBI spent seven hours tearing through our house, as well as raiding a storage facility nearby, where they also took a computer and went through financial records that are at least fifteen years old.
Although you would never know it from the fake news media, my husband, Roger Stone is not charged with Russian collusion, Wikileaks collaboration or any other crime associated with the 2016 election. All the charges against him have been fabricated in an obvious effort to pressure him to turn on President Trump, who has been our friend for forty years and who attended our wedding in Washington D.C. 27 years ago. I remember how he danced with my mother.
As my husband has made clear, he simple refuses to make up stories about the President or bear false witness against him in order to please Mr. Mueller, who wants to undo the results of the 2016 election and remove our President.
Two years of constant intense investigation into every aspect of our family, as well as two years of constant leaks from the special councils office, have destroyed our family income.
In December, I cancelled our health and life insurance policies because we could not longer pay the premiums. My husband sold his car even though it was a 2006 model and we didn’t get much for it. We burned through a small fund we had put aside from the sale of my husband’s books that was supposed to pay for the college education of our grandchildren.
Now we are facing a two million dollar cost for lawyers in order to fight the bogus charges against my husband, who at 66 years old is facing a potential 45 year prison sentence for crimes he did not commit.
Every day brings death threats, late night anonymous phone calls threatening to kill us and it’s gotten so bad I can’t even go to the grocery store without somebody screaming at me and accusing us of being Russian spys, which is funny because my parents fled Cuba and the brutal regime of Fidel Castro… while my husband’s family members were mowed down my Russian tanks in Budapest in 1956.
While Mueller has unlimited tax dollars and a platoon of vicious left wing Ivy League prosecutors to try my husband, we can only depend on people like you to help fund Roger’s legal defense.
You have been so generous in the past and I hesitate to ask but frankly I have no one else to turn to.
We deeply appreciate the thousands of Americans who are praying for us and supporting our fight against a run-away federal prosecutor bent on destroying my husband simply because he supported Donald Trump for President and helped defeat Hillary Clinton.
I have to begin packing everything we own because we must move into a small apartment which is less expensive and has better security so the days ahead will be busy for me.
The same Obama appointed judge who put Paul Manafort in solitary confinement prior to his being convicted of any crime is now considering issuing a gag order so that my husband can no longer publicly raise money for his legal defense- that’s why it is important that you rush me your answer today.
God Bless You,
P.S. You can see fake news stories online that say my husband and I are wealthy and worth millions of dollars. This is totally false. Roger says these stories are planted in order to make it harder for us to raise money for his legal defense. We urgently need your help again today.
