    Roger Stone is known for hyperbole, but his latest graphic warning should worry Donald Trump. The political trickster said Tuesday, a day he pleaded not guilty to seven charges laid by special counsel Robert Mueller, that Trump's presidency is in mortal peril because the Russia investigation amounts to a "speeding bullet heading for his head." Stone's comment, to "Breitbart News Daily" on Sirius XM radio, added to soaring anticipation, fueled by a remark by acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker on Monday, that the probe could soon end with Mueller's final report. And it raised the question of whether Trump's repeated...

    Full title: CNN Hid Images and Video of Roger Stone’s 72-Year-Old Wife Being Dragged Out of Home Barefoot and In Nightgown On Friday the Mueller Special Counsel sent 20-29 armed FBI operatives in six vehicles and a CNN camera crew to film the arrest of Trump associate Roger Stone at his home in a predawn raid. Roger Stone was arrested barefoot and in his shorts outside his apartment. On Monday Roger Stone told Judge Napolitano in a FOX Nation interview that his 72-year-old wife was also forced to stand outside barefoot and in her nightgown. For some strange reason this...

    he Roger Stone indictment and arrest is yet another Mueller team flop. As I showed in November, the Stone “bombshell” emails that appeared to show advance knowledge of WikiLeak releases actually show nothing of the sort. Weeks and even months before Jerome Corsi’s email to Trump advisor Stone possibly suggesting more “dumps” about Hillary Clinton were coming, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange had publicly promised to publish more Clinton material. The Stone indictment also misleadingly omits crucial facts to make it appear as though Stone was trafficking in something other than public knowledge and wild guesses. According to the indictment, “During...

    Points made by DiGenova: It was vindictive prosecution. This raid occurred after the Manafort raid. That means that neither FBI Director Chris Wray, Rosenstein or (acting AG) Whitaker said anything to Mueller about not doing anything like that again. It also means that Wray, Rosenstein, and Whittaker approved of the raid on Stone's House. Either the FBI office in Ft. Lauderdale or Mueller's office notified CNN (in advance).

    FULL TITLE: Fox News Hosts Create CNN, Mueller Conspiracy Theory Surrounding Roger Stone Arrest, Demand Investigation Fox News hosts past and present are touting a meta cable news conspiracy theory claiming special counsel Robert Mueller tipped off CNN prior to Roger Stone's Friday arrest. Sean Hannity and Jeanine Pirro are touting a baseless accusation first concocted on Twitter by former Fox News host Greta Van Susteren that their rival cable news network CNN was "obviously tipped off" by Mueller's office in cahoots with the FBI. Van Susteren later apologized and recanted the claim, but right-wing news media immediately pounced on...

    The Daily Caller ^ | 9:55 AM 01/25/2019 | Amber Athey | White House Correspondent
    CNN was the only news outlet to capture footage of Trump-confidant Roger Stone’s arrest Friday morning, raising allegations that they were tipped off to the impending raid by the FBI or the grand jury handling the case. Stone was arrested early Friday morning at his home in Fort Lauderdale, Florida after being indicted by a grand jury on charges brought by special counsel Robert Mueller. Dramatic footage captured by a lucky CNN producer shows the FBI surrounding Stone’s home in an armed raid and pounding on Stone’s front door.

Special counsel’s office leaking will be a paramount issue of the Stone case. Here is Stone on Tucker Carlson Tonight: Even though David Shortell does not live near Roger Stone, former NFL wide receiver Chad Johnson apparently does: BLP reported: Exactly 618 days since Special Counsel Robert S.

    In a scathing condemnation of Roger Stone following his Friday indictment, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-F.L.) accused the longtime ally of President Donald Trump of illegally securing his election. In an interview with CNN on Saturday, the congresswoman, who resigned from her post as the head of the Democratic National Committee after the hacking and subsequent WikiLeaks dump of the organization’s emails, said Trump’s campaign had been “infected with contact with Russia.” “In this case with Roger Stone, he literally weaponized information stolen by Vladimir Putin to help elect Donald Trump president,” she asserted. “He worked with high-level campaign officials...

    Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Friday that the arrest of Roger Stone, a longtime informal adviser to President Trump, "makes clear that there was a deliberate, coordinated attempt by top Trump campaign officials to influence the 2016 election." Stone was indicted late Thursday on seven charges, including false statements to Congress, obstruction of a congressional investigation and witness tampering in connection with special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russian election interference. Pelosi responded to the indictment in a statement released late Friday that raised questions about Trump's ties to Russia and vowed to hold those who lie to Congress "accountable."...

    ‘Trump is the target’ “Prosecutors have this enormous power.

People like Manafort and Stone are not the real targets of the investigation. President Trump is the target.” ...”The obvious purpose of indicting (stone) him on these obstructing and false statement charges is to put pressure on him to flip. That’s the goal,” said Dershowitz “The fact that they arrested him this morning rather than allowing him to appear is another evidence that they are trying to...
  • Stone Indictment Undercuts Trump-Russia Collusion Narrative

    01/25/2019 7:43:33 PM PST · by NoLibZone · 33 replies
    The indictment against Roger Stone makes no allegation that the longtime Trump associate conspired with Russia or WikiLeaks. Instead, Stone is accused of lying to Congress about communication he had with Trump campaign officials and other associates about his efforts to find out what information WikiLeaks had during the 2016 campaign. The indictment appears to undercut some of the Democratic-backed conspiracies of a vast conspiracy between the Trump team and Russia to hack and disseminate emails stolen from Democrats.

    A defiant Roger Stone said he would fight the criminal charges filed against him Friday, pledging not to “bear false witness” against President Trump. “There is no circumstance whatsoever under which I will bear false witness against the president, nor will I make up lies to ease the pressure on myself,” Stone said outside federal court in Fort Lauderdale. “I look forward to being fully and completely vindicated.” Wearing a blue polo and jeans, Stone emerged from the courthouse to a swarm of media, protesters and supporters after he was released on a $250,000 bond.

    P Photo/Andrew Harnik President Trump on Friday questioned who tipped off CNN to be at the pre-dawn arrest of his former adviser Roger Stone. “Greatest Witch Hunt in the History of our Country! NO COLLUSION! Border Coyotes, Drug Dealers and Human Traffickers are treated better. Who alerted CNN to be there?” Trump tweeted referencing the indictment of Stone on charges related to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia collusion probe. CNN cameras were set up at the house where Stone was arrested in Fort Lauderdale, capturing “exclusive” footage.

    The latest "This is the beginning of the end for Trump..." orgasm in the mainstream media comes with serious action movie production values, courtesy of Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller. Roger Stone, who could easily have been notified to turn himself in the way white-collar defendants who are no danger of fleeing normally are handled, was instead subjected to a humiliating midnight predawn raid with cars full of riot gear-clad FBI agents, all staged before the cameras of CNN, which was exclusively granted access to the scene worthy of an action movie.

Stone said that she has been afraid to talk about her experiences with Rush who she starred in a stage production of The Diary of a Madman in 2010 and 2011. According to an interview with the New York Times, she said that he danced naked in front of her, used a mirror to watch her shower and sent erotic text messages. At the time, Stone was 25...

    President Donald Trump's longtime political ally Roger Stone invoked his Fifth Amendment protection as he declined to share documents and testimony with members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, according to a letter posted Tuesday by the committee's top Democrat, Sen. Dianne Feinstein. "Mr. Stone's invocation of his Fifth Amendment privilege must be understood by all to be the assertion of a Constitutional right by an innocent citizen who denounces secrecy," Stone's attorney, Grant Smith, said in the letter, dated Dec. 3.

    Conservative author and commentator Jerome Corsi says special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigators accused him of lying under oath only after he "couldn’t give them what they wanted.” Corsi spoke with Fox News' Tucker Carlson Tuesday night, one day after he announced he would reject a plea deal that would have required him to plead guilty to perjury. "I refused to plead to a lie," Corsi told Carlson. Mueller sent Corsi a draft plea agreement earlier this month stipulating that the special counsel would allow Corsi to request a sentence of probation if he agreed to plead guilty to one count...
