Roger Stone predicted ‘devastating’ anti-Hillary leaks on same day he boasted of Assange dinner

Published

Longtime Trump ally Roger Stone predicted in August 2016 that WikiLeaks would soon release “devastating” information about then-Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton on the same day that he bragged to a former Trump campaign aide about having dinner with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

CNN reports that Stone went on Alex Jones’ “InfoWars” radio show on August 4, 2016, where he said that Assange would soon reveal critical information about the Clinton Foundation that would wreck Clinton’s bid for the presidency.

“The Clinton campaign narrative that the Russians favor Donald Trump and the Russians are leaking this information, this is inoculation because, as you said earlier, they know what is coming and it is devastating,” Stone said to Jones. “Let’s remember that their defense to all the Clinton Foundation scandals is not that ‘we didn’t do,’ but ‘you have no proof, yes but you have no proof.’ I think Julian Assange has that proof and I think he is going to furnish it for the American people.”

This interview came on the same day that Stone told former Trump aide Sam Nunberg that he “dined with” Assange the night before, although Stone has maintained that he had only been “joking” about meeting the WikiLeaks cofounder, and he has repeatedly said that he never had any contacts with the WikiLeaks founder.

‘Early Bordello’: Internet slams Melania Trump’s redecoration of White House rooms

Published

on

In 2015, Rep. Aaron Schock (R-Ill) was forced to resign following revelations that he'd misused campaign and public funds. The inquiry into his spending was triggered by the lush ornateness of his office decor. While most of his colleagues worked out of plain, professional offices, Schock's working space was reminiscent of Downtown Abbey.

Writing in the Journal Star, columnist Phil Luciano observed that First Lady Melania Trump's redecoration of several White House rooms seems to borrow heavily from Schock's style.

‘The ground is shifting’: Longtime GOP aide sounds the alarm that Trump is putting Arizona in play

Published

on

Chuck Coughlin, who once served as a top aide to two different Republican governors in Arizona, is warning that President Donald Trump is putting his state in play for the 2020 presidential election.

In an interview with Politico, Coughlin said his party has expressed real anxiety about the state turning blue next year.

"Republicans are very concerned,” he said. "The ground is shifting."

At the moment, just 45 percent of Arizona voters have a favorable view of Trump, while 53 percent have an unfavorable view. Additionally, the victory of Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) in last year's midterm elections showed that Democrats can be competitive in statewide races in a place that became famous for electing iconic conservative senators such as John McCain and Barry Goldwater.
