The right-leaning network aired the footage, apparently from Stone's own in-home surveillance system, on Thursday afternoon nearly two weeks after the former Trump associate was indicted over his contacts with WikiLeaks during the 2016 election.


In the video, Stone can be seen wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with the phrase "Roger Stone did nothing wrong," and is led away after being met at the door by agents armed with rifles and full tactical gear.

Stone pleaded not guilty to the charges last week, while decrying the manner by which he was arrested.

“The idea that a 29-member SWAT team in full tactical gear with assault weapons would surround my house, 17 vehicles in my front yard, including two armored vehicles, a helicopter overhead … and that I would open the door looking down the barrel of assault weapons, that I would be frog-marched out front barefooted, handcuffed, when they simply could have contacted me,” he told ABC's George Stephanopoulos.

Stone is accused of making multiple false statements to Congress about his contacts with WikiLeaks during the campaign, and his indictment also states that a senior Trump campaign official was "directed to contact Stone about any additional releases and what other damaging information [WikiLeaks] had regarding the Clinton Campaign."

"Stone thereafter told the Trump Campaign about potential future releases of damaging material by [WikiLeaks]," the document reads.

Thousands of stolen emails from the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee were posted on WikiLeaks during the 2016 election, of which Stone previously denied having advance knowledge.
