'Chutzpah': Trump’s Convicted Adviser Roger Stone Re-Emerges Before Reporting To Prison | MSNBC 1

 

Convicted Trump aides Michael Flynn and Roger Stone are moving forward in their fight to avoid jail time. Stone, a former Trump adviser, has recently appeared on Fox Business News before his scheduled time to report to prison for a three year term, alleging he and Flynn are the “the subjects of a political vendetta.” Former Federal Prosecutor John Flannery says Flynn plead guilty and despite the DOJ’s urging to dismiss, “this special case” is up to the judge to decide, not Attorney General Barr. Even going to the classic “A Few Good Men” line in reference to Flynn, “You can’t handle the truth.” Flannery acknowledges the irony in Stone’s claim that he is “as innocent as Flynn” but reiterates that Flynn “twice said he was guilty.” (This interview is from MSNBC’s “The Beat with Ari Melber, a news show covering politics, law and culture airing nightly at 6pm ET on MSNBC. ). Aired on 5/20/2020.

      It’s good this is happening in Trump’s last month to remind the next administration of the things Trump did and I hope they will appoint a special prosecutor to do a deep dive into Trump with a bar of easily prosecuted felonies.

    • I was about to say the same thing!!

      What kind of human thinks Flynn, trump, and Stone are “good guys”, but everyone else, are the “bad guys” ?

      Joe Paleface “fake news” 😂😂😂😂😂 when’s the last time you had an original thought? Sheep 😂😂😂😂

  6. For Stone ..the only thing worse than being talked about , is not being talked about.

  7. perjury – then Flynn lied directly to the judge and should get Maximum penalty for pejury . . .

  8. You’re all a bunch of grifters and crooks who belong in back alleys with the rest of the Mafia freaks. Concrete shoes in the East River are too good for them!

    They’re already trying to smear Sullivan’s reputation just like they did with Vindman and the Ukraine Ambassadors.

  10. I have no doubt that Roger Stone has already threatened Trump with revealing all of his crimes if Trump doesn’t pardon him.  Stone could corroborate Rick Gates’ testimony that Trump did in fact collude with WikiLeaks.

    Ex-Trump campaign official Rick Gates testified under oath in Roger Stone’s trial that he was in the presidential limousine with Trump, and he’d heard Stone tell Trump about the WikiLeaks release of hacked DNC emails before the dump happened — a direct contradiction of what Trump told Mueller in his written testimony.

    In his under oath testimony, Gates described how he’d seen Trump get a phone call from Stone in summer 2016, and after Trump hung up, told Gates “more information would be  coming” regarding WikiLeaks.

    Going back as far as April 2016, Gates said, Stone told him that information would be released by WikiLeaks that could be helpful to Trump’s campaign. He reiterated this the following month. All this was before WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange stated publicly on June 12, 2016, that he had pending releases related to Hillary Clinton.

    On July 22, 2016, WikiLeaks posted thousands of emails from the DNC — emails that had been hacked by Russian intelligence officers.

    After that, Gates testified, the top levels of the Trump campaign were very interested in what Stone knew about WikiLeaks. Gates said Manafort asked him to follow up with Stone to try to learn more about WikiLeaks’s plans. And Gates said that Manafort indicated he would update others on the campaign, “including the candidate” — Donald Trump.

    Gates also testified that he witnessed a phone call between Trump and Stone in late July, shortly after the DNC email releases began, while Gates was in a car with Trump driving to LaGuardia Airport. Gates said that after the call ended, Trump told him that “more information would be coming.”

    October 10, 2016 in Wilkes-Barre, PA: “This just came out,” Trump said. “WikiLeaks, I love WikiLeaks.”
    October 12, 2016 in Ocala, FL: “This WikiLeaks stuff is unbelievable,” Trump said. “It tells you the inner heart, you gotta read it.”
    October 13, 2016 in Cincinnati, OH: “It’s been amazing what’s coming out on WikiLeaks.”
    October 31, 2016 in Warren, MI: “Another one came in today,” Trump said. “This WikiLeaks is like a treasure trove.”
    November 4, 2016 in Wilmington, OH: “Getting off the plane, they were just announcing new WikiLeaks, and I wanted to stay there, but I didn’t want to keep you waiting,” said Trump. “Boy, I love reading those WikiLeaks.”

    Trump on April 11, 2019, after Julian Assange is arrested:
    “I know nothing about WikiLeaks. It’s not my thing, and I know there is something having to do with Julian Assange. I know nothing really about him. That’s not my deal in life.”  😲

    Has the world ever seen a bigger liar than Trump?  I THINK NOT…

    • 2 minutes after Wikileaks dumped the first tranche of Podesta emails, an associate of Steve Bannon sent a text to Stone saying, “Well done”.

    • Creator
      Didn’t know that. But it sounds about right from what I’ve seen from Steve Bannon’s testimony against Stone.

    • @David J
      There is so much evidence of collusion it’s hard to keep track!

      It was Alexandra Preate, a Trump campaign aide who worked for Bannon, who sent that text to Stone.

  12. Steve Bannon’s contacts with Stone during the 2016 campaign was one of the featured parts of Stone’s trial.

    “I think we did, yes,” said Bannon, when asked during Stone’s trial whether the Trump campaign viewed Stone as its “access point” to WikiLeaks and Julian Assange.

    Stone’s denials of having any contact with WikiLeaks was undercut by testimony from people like Bannon and a trail of emails and phone records. One message from Aug. 16, 2016, shows Stone telling Bannon on the day he took over as campaign CEO about the prospect that WikiLeaks would drop more damaging documents for the Clinton campaign.

    “I have an idea … to save Trump’s @55,”  Stone wrote.

    Bannon testified that he heard repeatedly from Stone — before he even took over as Trump campaign chief — about his access to WikiLeaks. And Stone kept on talking about the potential of more detrimental materials through the late summer and early fall, at a time when Clinton had the lead in the polls.

    Bannon’s contacts with Stone included an Oct. 4, 2016, exchange after a much-hyped Assange news conference, which fueled the hashtag “October?surprise”  but it turned out to be a bust.

    “It was a big dud, yes,” Bannon said.

    But a few days later, WikiLeaks dumped emails stolen from the Clinton campaign just minutes after The Washington Post published the “Access Hollywood” tape. Bannon described that chain of events as the “Billy Bush weekend” — a reference to Trump bragging about grabbing women by the p..

    Rick Gates testified under oath in Roger Stone’s trial that he was in the presidential limousine with Trump, and he’d heard Stone tell Trump about the WikiLeaks release of hacked DNC emails before the dump happened — a direct contradiction of what Trump told Mueller in his written testimony.

    • David J One of the far right bs kings bannon testifies against him. Every one seems to ignore this.

  13. The court was lenient, in allowing Stone to self-report to prison. That’s often true of privileged white collar criminals, but he could have been hauled away in handcuffs right in court. Which is the case with most street criminals, who are mainly the poor.

      Are you that delusional? They sent a swat team to his house at 5 in the morning.

    • @Mark Lassiter No, it was 6 a.m., as is customary with FBI raids. Like all crooks when confronted by overpowering authority, the big-talking dirty-trickster peed his pants with fear.

      Don’t forget the trauma his dog suffered.

  14. Flynn & Stone are cold blooded liars and a danger to society. Their leader is even worse

  15. This is a corrupt scheme between Barr and Flynn’s lawyers.

  16. William Barr and Flynn should have left judge Sullivan alone.Their Egos and Over confidence has backfired. Divine intervention through Judge Sullivan🙌🇺🇸

    Roger Stone is a snake. He was convicted by a jury of his peers. He deserves every day in prison he earned.
