Political consultant Roger Stone will visit Buffalo, less than two months before his scheduled federal trial for charges connected to the Russia special investigation.

According to an email, former New York state gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino will host “Roger Stone Uncensored” on September 13. The controversial consultant with close ties to President Donald Trump, will “discuss the current political climate and his past experiences as a political strategist.”

“He is a good man and forward thinker for America and doesn’t fear the press,” Paladino said. “He is a victim of progressive politics.

Tickets cost $35 and there will be a book signing after the speech. Paladino said the funds raised will go toward Stone’s legal fees.

A grand jury indicted Stone at the beginning of this year. The federal government charged him with seven crimes including obstructing justice, lying to Congress and witness tampering.

His trial is currently slated for November 5.
