Republican political consultant and former Nixon and Trump campaign adviser Roger Stone said through his lawyer Tuesday that he is invoking his Fifth Amendment rights and declining to testify before the House January 6 commission.

“In response to the recently served subpoena from the Select Committee, Mr. Stone has directed me to advise you that, as further discussed below, pursuant to the rights afforded him by the Fifth Amendment to the Constitution, he declines to be deposed or produce documents,” Stone attorney Grant J. Smith wrote to the committee.

The letter states that there is “no question” the Fifth Amendment provides Stone the “Constitutional right to decline to respond to questions.”

Smith added that the Select Committee’s demand for documents is “overreaching” and concluded the request is too “wide-ranging to be deemed anything other than a fishing expedition.”
