Roger Stone, the political operative who was convicted of obstructing an investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election and then pardoned by former President Donald Trump, was served with a lawsuit dealing with the Jan. 6 Capitol riot while chatting live on the radio.

Stone was talking about Trump campaigning in 2024 on "Real Talk 93.3" radio in St. Louis when a process server arrived with the papers, according to a tweet with the recording posted by former federal prosecutor Ron Filipkowski.

"Hold on a second, I have a process server at my front door, about to serve me with the latest lawsuit," Stone said. "This is a big, big stack of papers, which is good because we're out of toilet paper today."

Stone, a longtime political adviser for Trump and others, was convicted of lying to Congress and obstructing special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election. He was among a half-dozen Trump associates who were indicted in the Russia probe.

Trump commuted Stone's sentence days before he was set to report to prison and later pardoned him.

The Justice Department sued Stone in April, accusing him of not paying $2 million in taxes.

The latest civil lawsuit apparently stems from the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol.

"I've just been served in the Jan. 6 lawsuit live right here on your radio show," Stone told the hosts of the radio program.

Stone said he is unjustly accused of being involved in the attack on the Capitol. He is raising money for a legal defense fund.

"This is categorically false and a smear, based solely on naked 'guilt by association', sly innuendo and baseless supposition," he said on the fundraising website. "It did not happen."
