Feds file suit against Roger Stone for unpaid taxes

The Department of Justice filed a civil lawsuit on Friday against Roger Stone, the longtime GOP political operative and ally to former President Trump, accusing him of owing the government about $2 million in unpaid federal income taxes…

In a federal district court in Florida, the Justice Department alleged Friday that Stone and his wife Nydia used a limited liability corporation called Drake Ventures to “receive payments that are payable to Roger Stone personally, pay their personal expenses, shield their assets, and avoid reporting taxable income to the IRS…”

The Justice Department alleges that after Stone was criminally charged in January 2019, he and his wife used Drake Venture funds to purchase their home in Broward County, Fla., and registered it under another entity. According to the lawsuit, the couple was in “substantial debt” to the IRS at the time of purchase.

In a statement Friday night, Stone dismissed the Justice Department’s allegations as a political attack on him and his family.

If there’s anything Stone should be expert about it’s political attacks. Though, like Trump, Stone believes he is above the law.

    “As federal authorities probe into Roger Stone—an ally of former President Donald Trump and recipient of his presidential pardon—over possible involvement in the deadly January 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol, footage of Stone galvanizing Trump supporters prior to the incident may offer some clues.” https://www.newsweek.com/roger-stone-videos-detail-january-6-role-before-capitol-riots-1602509
    “According to Harry Litman, former U.S. attorney and deputy assistant attorney general, the Department of Justice is currently investigating Stone’s role in the attack, which left five dead and stunned the nation. In February, The Washington Post reported the Justice Department and the FBI were investigating ties between Stone, conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and Capitol rioters.

    Stone has vehemently denied any involvement in the attack.”
