A federal judge released Roger Stone on $250,000 bond hours after he was taken into custody by armed agents during a dramatic pre-dawn raid at his South Florida home on Friday.
Stone's travel is restricted to NYC, Washington, D.C. and South Florida.
The former campaign adviser to then-candidate Donald Trump is charged with seven criminal counts of obstruction of justice and witness tampering.
Stone was also charged with making false statements to the House Intelligence Committee during a closed-door session in 2017, according to Robert Mueller's office.
Stone held up both hands in victory signs as he left the federal courthouse in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on Friday afternoon.
Amid a smattering of boos, Stone denounced the FBI agents who rudely awakened him at his home early Friday. He remained defiant and said he would never testify against President Trump.
The former political lobbyist was an adviser to Trump for decades and had contact with Trump during the 2016 campaign.
Stone, 66, co-founded the Washington, D.C.-based lobbying firm Black, Manafort, Stone with principals Paul Manafort and Charles R. Black Jr.
The indictment does not accuse Stone of meddling in the 2016 election or colluding with the Russians. Stone, a self-professed provocateur, bragged about his connections to Wikileaks founder Julian Assange throughout the 2016 election.
Stone promoted the email leaks on Twitter.com and informed his followers about explosive revelations contained in the emails before they were leaked online.
After Mueller was appointed as Special Prosector and began to focus his attention on Stone's connections to Wikileaks, Stone changed his story, saying he was not connected to Wikileaks or Assange.
