The link Trump friend Roger Stone tweeted goes to a conspiracy theory website, that claims Khan’s son was killed before a secret mission was finished.

“Is it likely that Khan’s son was killed before his Islamist mission was accomplished?

An illegal trend could be emerging after Trump let Kellyanne Conway off the hook for breaking federal law

Federal workplaces are supposed to be free of politics, but a Trump administration appointee used a government forum Wednesday to express support for the president’s reelection.
