Big League Politics adviser Roger Stone is firing back at comedian Tom Arnold for claiming that Stone “coached” Al Franken’s first accuser Leeann Tweeden in an effort to bring the Democratic senator down. Franken announced that he is resigning from the Senate following groping allegations.
Stone tells BLP that “I never had any contact with Leeann Tweeden” and “Just because John Phillips has had me on his radio show does not mean that he is my source. I merely broke the news of Tweeden’s charges against Franken on Big League Politics. Tom Arnold is delusional.”
Roger Stone broke the Senator Al Franken sexual assault story here at Big League Politics twitter at 1:05 AM Thursday.

Arnold said on Twitter, “I’m disappointed with my friend Leeann Tweedon. Her partner at KABC John Phillips is a Roger Stone pal & they coached her for weeks to bring Al Franken down. I’d hoped she’d use her voice to speak out for all women again predators like Roy Moore & Donald Trump but she’s a birther.”
Not true, says Stone.
It should be noted for the record that Stone, who serves as Big League Politics Social Media Coach, serves at this publication in a journalistic capacity.
Arnold was once married to Roseanne Barr, who is now a major Trump supporter and an early fan of Big League Politics.
