Roger Stone, a longtime ally and confidant to President Donald Trump, pleaded not guilty in Washington federal court Tuesday, accompanied by his out-of-state attorneys after an initial hiccup in court filings raised uncertainty about his representation.

The Republican operative appeared with Fort Lauderdale, Florida-based attorneys Robert Buschel of Buschel & Gibbons and Grant Smith of StrategySmith after a magistrate judge twice said Monday that they failed to follow local rules to appear. Stone was also joined by D.C.-based lawyer L. Peter Farkas of Halloran Farkas + Kittila.
