In the video, which was obtained and reviewed by ABC News, Stone takes pictures and mingles with supporters outside a D.C. hotel as Oath Keepers hover around him, one wearing a baseball hat and military-style vest branded with the militia group’s logo.
‘So, hopefully we have this today, right?’ one supporter asks Stone in the video, which was posted just after 10 a.m. on the morning of the rally. ‘We shall see,’ Stone replies.
It is not known to what they were referring.
Stone has maintained that he played ‘no role whatsoever in the Jan. 6 events’ and has repeatedly said that he ‘never left the site of my hotel until leaving for Dulles Airport’ that afternoon. He has also decried attempts to ascribe to him the motives of the people around him.
‘I had no advance knowledge of the riot at the Capitol,’ Stone on Friday told ABC News about the video. ‘I could not even tell you the names of those who volunteered to provide security for me, required because of the many threats against me and my family.’
