  • Roger Stone: The Witch Hunt Continues

    The Daily Caller ^ | August 13th, 2018 | Roger Stone
    One of Stone’s Rules is “The only thing worse than being talked about is not being talked about.” Even I may have taken exception to that rule last Friday. If you followed the news last Friday, you know that my longtime friend Kristin Davis testified before Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s grand jury, that my longtime associate and wingman Andrew Miller was held in contempt for his refusal to testify for the grand jury, and that a subpoena was dropped on Randy Credico who, despite his public denials, was the source who first told me that Wikileaks had the goods on...

    Roger Stone said Monday that he may be willing to cooperate with special counsel Robert Mueller, but vowed he would never testify against President Trump. "There is no circumstance in which I intend to be pressured in order to testify against the president. First of all, I have nothing that I could say about him that would be negative. Secondarily, I'm just not going to do that," Stone said during an appearance on CNN's "Outfront." "I wouldn't rule out cooperating with the special counsel if I can be helpful in some area, but there's no circumstance under which I would...
  • WikiLeaks says Senate panel requested Assange testimony for Russia probe

    WikiLeaks is claiming that the Senate Intelligence Committee has asked its founder, Julian Assange, to testify as part of the panel's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. The organization posted a letter on its Twitter account dated Aug. 1 that purports to come from committee leaders Sens. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) and Mark Warner (D-Va.) requesting that he make himself available “for a closed door interview with bipartisan Committee staff at a mutually agreeable time and location.” A spokeswoman for Warner declined to comment on witnesses. A spokeswoman for Burr also declined to comment. Assange’s legal team is...

    The Democratic National Committee on Friday officially served its lawsuit to WikiLeaks via Twitter, employing a rare method to serve its suit to the elusive group that has thus far been unresponsive. As CBS News first reported last month, the DNC filed a motion with a federal court in Manhattan requesting permission to serve its complaint to WikiLeaks on Twitter, a platform the DNC argued the website uses regularly. The DNC filed a lawsuit in April against the Trump campaign, Russian government and WikiLeaks, alleging a massive conspiracy to tilt the 2016 election in Donald Trump's favor. All of the...

    The Hill ^ | 08/10/18 | John Bowden
    Lawyers representing the Democratic National Committee (DNC) on Friday served transparency advocates WikiLeaks with a lawsuit via Twitter, accusing the site of working with the Trump campaign and Russia to swing the 2016 election in President Trump's favor. The move came Friday after CBS News reports multiple attempts by DNC lawyers to serve legal documents to WikiLeaks representatives by email were met with no response. The DNC was one of multiple Democratic organizations hacked during the 2016 election, with the resulting emails and documents posted on WikiLeaks. The U.S. intelligence community believes Russia was behind the breach, with the intention...

    The hacking collective Anonymous is pledging to expose the people behind the "QAnon" conspiracy theory. The anarchist hacking group slammed the QAnon conspiracy as potentially dangerous and driven by a “brainless political agenda” in a video posted Sunday to what is widely considered the most reliable Anonymous Twitter account. “We will not see idly by while you take advantage of the misinformed and poorly educated,” the group said in the video, which was posted with the hashtags "#OpQ" and "#OpQAnon." The video depicts various figures with the Anonymous masks acting out certain aspects of the QAnon conspiracy over a constant...
  • Roger Stone: Trump should pardon Julian Assange to defend journalism

    Washington Examiner ^ | Aug. 1, 2018
    Roger Stone, the Trump adviser whose claimed contact with WikiLeaks put him in the crosshairs of special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe, says President Trump should pardon WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange to defend press freedom. “Journalists everywhere should be disturbed if Assange is kidnapped and put on trial. It is a blow to independent journalism and a free press,” Stone told the Washington Examiner, as Assange's future becomes increasingly uncertain. In justifying a pardon for Assange, Stone cites a conclusion by Obama administration officials that prosecuting Assange for publishing classified information could set a precedent allowing for prosecution of journalists...

    The Wall Street Journal/NBC poll shows President Trump's approval rating at 45 percent, up one percent from last month. The President enjoys 88 percent support among Republican in the poll. Its his highest approval rating in polling done by the Wall Street Journal/NBC. A headline in Monday's London "Times" says "No deal on Brexit risks civil unrest, says Amazon". THe pro-Theresa May Conservative Party newspaper quoted the head of Amazon UK in the story speaking to a government minister at a business summit. In a tweet late tonight, Breitbart UK's Raheem Kassam responded that "NO BREXIT" would lead to civil...

    Vanity | July 18, 2018 | Behind the Blue Wall
    I'm just starting to hear the first inklings of the concern that Russians are going to "interfere" in the 2018 midterm elections on behalf of Republicans. They've accused those of us in the #WalkAway movement of being Russian bots. They've accused the NRA of being Russian agents. They're accusing the President of being a traitor. The former FBI Director and many others is urging all patriots to put aside "policies" and vote Democrat. We are rapidly approaching a point where the Deep State/Media/Democrat Party/etc. are defining Trump and the entire Republican Party as traitors. The logical extension of their position...

    Front Page Magazine ^ | July 17, 2018 | Daniel Greenfield
    The Russia conspiracy theory hinges on the single creaky claim that the Democratic National Committee hacks were a Russian plot to elect Trump. The theory and all its illegitimate stepchildren, including Robert Mueller and his infinitely expanding corps of prosecutors, lives or dies by the DNC hacks. Trying to elect Trump by releasing damaging insider information from the DNC never made any sense. The DNC was already a dysfunctional organization that was being run by the Clinton campaign. Undermining its leadership had little impact on the election, but a great deal on control of the DNC. There has never been...

    Ecuador is working to finalize an agreement to withdraw its asylum protection from WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in order to throw him out of the country's embassy in London and turn him over to British authorities, journalist Glenn Greenwald reported on Saturday. On Friday, Ecuador President Lenin Moreno was in London, where he was to speak at the Global Disabilities Summit, Greenwald reports on The Intercept, but the actual purpose was to meet with British officials to finalize the agreement to turn Assange over. The WikiLeaks founder has been at Ecuador's embassy in London since 2012. Moreno will also travel...

    Ecuador’s President Lenin Moreno traveled to London on Friday for the ostensible purpose of speaking at the 2018 Global Disabilities Summit (Moreno has been using a wheelchair since being shot in a 1998 robbery attempt). The concealed, actual purpose of the President’s trip is to meet with British officials to finalize an agreement under which Ecuador will withdraw its asylum protection of Julian Assange, in place since 2012, eject him from the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, and then hand over the WikiLeaks founder to British authorities.

    Ecuador is ready to hand over the WikiLeaks founder to the UK in “coming weeks or even days,” RT editor-in-chief Margarita Simonyan said citing her own sources, as prospects of his eviction from the embassy are back in the media. “My sources tell [Julian] Assange will be handed over to Britain in the coming weeks or even days,” Simonyan wrote in a recent tweet which was reposted by WikiLeaks. “Like never before, I wish my sources were wrong,” she continued. Simonyan's message comes, as speculations Ecuador is in talks with the UK over the future of Assange are back again...

    At least seven people associated with longtime Trump friend Roger Stone have been contacted by special counsel Robert Mueller, according to interviews with witnesses and others who say they've been contacted. The contacts suggest Mueller appears to still be aggressively pursuing evidence that would tell him whether associates of president Trump colluded with Russia.

    The U.S. was in talks for a deal with Julian Assange but then FBI Director James Comey ordered an end to negotiations after Assange offered to prove Russia was not involved in the DNC leak, as Ray McGovern explains. An explosive report by investigative journalist John Solomon on the opinion page of Monday's edition of The Hill sheds a bright light on how Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) and then-FBI Director James Comey collaborated to prevent WikiLeaks editor Julian Assange from discussing "technical evidence ruling out certain parties [read Russia]" in the controversial leak of Democratic Party emails to WikiLeaks during...

    A federal judge tossed out a lawsuit alleging that President Donald Trump’s campaign and former adviser Roger Stone worked with WikiLeaks. “Plaintiffs assert that defendants engaged in a conspiracy with unidentified Russian agents and WikiLeaks to publish hacked emails,” the judge wrote Tuesday. “The Court will grant defendants’ motions to dismiss, deny plaintiffs’ motion, and dismiss plaintiffs’ suit without prejudice.” The suit was brought by former Democratic National Committee finance chief of staff and former LGBT finance chair Scott Comer and two donors, Roy Cockrum and Eric Schoenberg. Comer’s claimed damages included that the Trump campaign caused his grandmother to...
  • Trump’s Attorneys Make Solid Case For Freeing Julian Assange in Legal Filing

    01/03/2018 6:20:37 PM PST · by MNDude · 17 replies
    President Donald Trump’s attorneys made a solid case for preemptively pardoning Julian Assange in a motion to dismiss a WikiLeaks-related lawsuit against the Trump campaign. While preemptive pardons are rare — they are not unheard of. The motion, filed on December 29, was in response to a lawsuit by two Democratic Party donors who allege that the Trump campaign and former adviser Roger Stone conspired with Russians to publish the leaked Democratic National Committee emails. The outlandish lawsuit, based largely on conspiracy theories, was orchestrated by a group called Protect Democracy — which happens to be run by former attorneys...

    A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit alleging that President Donald Trump's campaign and former Trump adviser Roger Stone conspired with Russia and WikiLeaks to publish hacked Democratic National Committee emails during the 2016 presidential race. U.S. District Court Judge Ellen Huvelle said in a ruling Tuesday evening that the suit's efforts to tie the Trump campaign and Stone's alleged actions to the nation's capital were too flimsy for the case to proceed in a Washington, D.C., court. "The Trump Campaign’s efforts to elect President Trump in D.C. are not suit-related contacts for those efforts did not involve acts taken...

    Dirty Cop James Comey KILLED immunity deal with Julian Assange. Assange could have revealed where the leaked Wikileaks email came from. Comey killed it. Julian Assange has repeatedly said his source for the Podesta emails WAS NOT the Russian government. Despite this the Deep State launched a bogus investigation to smear President Trump and bring down his administration. It’s time for a reckoning. The Hill‘s John Solomon broke the news on Monday night.
