Roger Stone Is Already Spilling The Beans On Trump To Robert Mueller

No honor among these thieves.

After the arrest and indictment of Roger Stone, Trump’s former campaign advisor and one of the highest-profile figures thus far to be nabbed by the special counsel, the President was eager to distance himself from Stone — but also to engage in one of his favorite pastimes, “whataboutism.”


Setting aside the fact that the Steele Dossier — of which almost every detail has been independently verified — was released in January 2017, after the election, and therefore could not have been an attempt to “damage” the Trump Campaign, it’s clear from these tweets that Trump is very nervous about what might happen next in the case of Roger Stone.

It turns out he has every reason to be scared.

On ABC’s This Week, Roger Stone made an appearance after his arrest and release on a quarter million dollar bond. And not only is he already poking holes in the notion that he didn’t work for Trump near the election by confirming that they spoke on the phone, but he’s already indicating he has zero problem telling Robert Mueller exactly what was said in those private conversations:

[I will testify about] any communications with the President. It’s true that we spoke on the phone, but those communications are political in nature.”

“Political in nature” is a pretty broad term, Roger.

And given the fact that the indictment contained proof that Stone was instructed from on high in the campaign to make additional contacts with WikiLeaks and determine when more damaging information about Hillary Clinton would be leaked, it’s pretty clear that Roger knows he won’t be able to lie to Mueller about whatever he and the President discussed and get away with it.
