Just after his appearance in a Florida court on Friday morning, Roger Stone spoke to reporters about his indictment on seven counts as part of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. The catch: He hasn’t read the indictment yet.

“With all due respect, I haven’t even had a chance to read the indictment,” he said in response to questions from an NBC reporter.

Despite not knowing the charges against him, Stone said he had no intention of pleading guilty to “bogus charges.” Stone was arrested early Friday in a pre-dawn raid by the FBI — an incident he called “terrorizing” to him, his wife and his dog — and indicted for obstructing an official proceeding, making false statements and witness tampering.
