Trump associate Roger Stone said Friday night that he believes his indictment is part of a “war on alternative media” and attempt to “criminalize political expression.”

“There is a war on alternative media,” he told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson. “There is a war where they are trying to criminalize political expression. There is a war where they are trying to criminalize free speech.”

“You know, that’s the amazing thing, is the press is not coming out and standing up against this war against free expression,” he continued. “This war against the First Amendment, which is really a war against the press.”

Stone maintains his innocence of the seven charges handed down by a federal grand jury, which include obstructing an official proceeding, false statements and witness tampering.
