Donald Trump ally Roger Stone, a political consultant and lobbyist, has been hit with a $5 million defamation lawsuit from Judicial Watch founder and conservative lawyer Larry Klayman, the Associated Press reported.

Klayman is seeking compensation in the lawsuit filed Monday in Palm Beach County, Florida over comments Stone made about him on the social media platform Gab, claiming they were false.

The suit alleged Stone called Klayman a "warped former lawyer that the 11th circuit found guilty of molesting his own children," on Gab. Then, after Klayman demanded the comment be removed, Stone proceeded to post a "clarification" insulting Klayman more.
