Former President Donald Trump's ex-adviser Roger Stone was served legal documents related to his alleged role in the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol riots during a live radio interview.

Stone, who received a presidential pardon from Trump before leaving office, was interrupted by a process server on Wednesday during an appearance on Real Talk 93.3 radio in St. Louis, Missouri.

"Hold on a second, I have a process server at my front door about to serve me in the latest lawsuit," Stone said, before exchanging a few words with the process server while he was still on the air.

"Alright, I have just been served in the January 6th lawsuit — live, right here on your radio show," Stone continued. "This is a big, big stack of papers, which is good because we're out of toilet paper."

Former federal prosecutor Ron Filipkowski tweeted the audio clip with Stone and later posted a screenshot of what appeared to be a written statement from the former presidential adviser after he was served.

Stone confirmed to the Washington Examiner on Thursday that he was served the documents, adding, "I think it provided a unique opportunity to make the case that this lawsuit is baseless, groundless, unsubstantiated, and reckless."

Stone has been encouraging people who want to help his legal defense to donate to StoneDefenseFund.com despite his open dismissal of the complaint's allegations as "baseless."

The U.S. Capitol Police filed a lawsuit on Aug. 26 against Trump, Stone, and other "violent extremist groups," such as Oath Keepers and the Proud Boys, for an alleged conspiracy "to stop Congress from confirming President Joe Biden's Electoral College victory," according to court records.

Stone was not directly involved in any attacks at the Capitol on Jan. 6 but allegedly had several interactions with Oath Keepers and the Proud Boys the night before and the day of the riot.

The former presidential counselor was seen with members of Oath Keepers, whom he reportedly called his "bodyguards," during a gathering at a Washington hotel before the Jan. 6 riot. Three members of the so-called Oath Keepers have been charged in a separate U.S. federal investigation.
