‘Politically Motivated’: Roger Stone Denounces Justice Department for Suing Him Over Unpaid Taxes

Late last year, then-outgoing US President Donald Trump issued a full pardon to his former campaign adviser Roger Stone, who was convicted in November 2019 on seven felony counts, including witness tampering and making false statements under oath to the US Congress.

The US Justice Department has filed a lawsuit against Roger Stone and his wife Nydia, accusing ex-POTUS Donald Trump’s former campaign adviser of failing to pay income tax.

The lawsuit claims the republican politician along with his spouse used a commercial body to “shield their personal income from enforced collection and fund a lavish lifestyle despite owing nearly $2 million in unpaid taxes, interest, and penalties”.

According to the legal action, the couple underpaid their income taxes by $1,590,361 from 2007 to 2011 and by $407,036 in 2018.
