Trump Confidant Roger Stone Found Guilty on Seven Felony Counts by Washington D.C. Jury
Roger Stone, a former aide and longtime confidant for President Donald Trump, was found guilty of seven charges on Friday, including obstruction of proceedings, witness tampering, and five counts of making false statements.
Stone now joins former national security adviser Michael Flynn, former personal lawyer Michael Cohen, former campaign aide George Papadopoulos, and former deputy campaign chairman Rick Gates as individuals who have been ensnared in the witch hunt against President Trump.
Stone’s daughter Adria noted that the fix was in from the start in the case against her father, as the jury was reportedly hand selected to ensure an outcome that was favorable for the deep state:
The deep state has claimed another scalp with the persecution of Stone, who faces up to 20 years in prison for his most serious charge. Judge Amy Berman Jackson, who banned Stone from using social media to raise funds for his legal defense during the case, will be in charge of the sentencing. It is possible that an example will be made of the Trump associate, with a Draconian prison sentence, in order to bolster the broader case against President Trump.
Stone was crucified, in part, because of his alleged ties to WikiLeaks and Julian Assange. The deep state is working diligently to extradite Assange based on dubious federal charges, so he can be punished as well for his role in putting President Trump in office.
Stone boasted throughout 2016 that he had a connection to Assange during many different media appearances. His lawyers argued in court that Stone’s bragging was all hype, and his public correspondence with WikiLeaks indicates that as well.
“Since I was all over national TV, cable and print defending wikileaks and assange against the claim that you are Russian agents and debunking the false charges of sexual assault as trumped up bs you may want to reexamine the strategy of attacking me,” Stone reportedly wrote to WikiLeaks in Oct. 2016.
“We appreciate that,” WikiLeaks replied. “However, the false claims of association are being used by the democrats to undermine the impact of our publications. Don’t go there if you don’t want us to correct you.”
Before his 1st Amendment rights were stripped in the court of law, Stone explained to the Christian Science Monitor that the case against him was a classic political railroading. He is being punished for behavior that is normal for a political operative to engage in.
“Politics isn’t bean bag. This is a rough-and-tumble game,” he said. “But I’ve never done anything that is outside the norm of what political operatives do.”
Stone, the consummate political dirty trickster, credits the deep state conspiracy against President Trump for coming up with the dirtiest trick of all-time.
“If I am a dirty trickster, that means that I can recognize one when I see it,” Stone said. “And the use of the surveillance authority to spy on Trump would have to go down as the greatest dirty trick of all time.”
Now, Stone will be paying the price for this unprecedented dirty trick. He could spend the rest of his life in prison, for non-crimes, because the deep state is so intent on hurting President Trump and undoing the 2016 presidential election.
