Stone’s court appearance came just days after FBI agents raided his Fort Lauderdale home and arrested him as part of Mueller’s Russia investigation.

In an interview with Sky News Monday, Stone doubled-down on his pledge to not implicate the president for false crimes.

“I am not willing to make up stories or bear false witness against anybody including the president,” he stated. “The president has done nothing wrong, he certainly hasn’t colluded with Russia and therefore I am not going to make up false tales about him to ease the pressure on myself — that would be perjury.”

Stone also reiterated that he has not discussed a possible pardon with President Trump.
