Former White House Counsel John Dean slammed longtime Trump adviser Roger Stone during a Thursday panel discussion hosted by CNN’s Don Lemon.
On Thursday, emails were released between Stone and Steve Bannon which appeared to show he had inside knowledge of WikiLeaks’ activity. Dean said that Stone continues to “amend” his story about this.
“Roger has been amending his story from day one on this,” Dean said. “In fact, The Washington Post filed a really nice piece cataloging his story as it has been amended.”
“This is another amendment because he denied talking to anybody in the campaign and he said ‘oops, I didn’t even remember I had an email exchange with Bannon.’ So Roger is hard to take at face value, frankly.”
Lemon then asked if it was illegal.
“If campaign officials believed that, does that show they intended to conspire and is it illegal?” Lemon asked.
“It certainly can be. Co-conspirators don’t have to tell each other truthful stories. In fact, it happened in Watergate. Many people were saying different things. Different people we know today from hindsight were motivated by different reasons. I think Roger could be getting a slot in the conspiracy,” Dean responded.

New testimony released Monday from the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation of the Ukraine scandal included at least two new stunning details about the quid pro quo scheme at the heart of the matter.
Overall, the transcripts for depositions of Catherine Croft and Christopher Anderson, who were advisers to U.S. envoy Kurt Volker, built on the story of that we already know: that President Donald Trump pushed a shadow foreign policy to pressure Ukraine into investigating his political opponents, a scheme that involved using his office and military aid as leverage over the country in opposition to the official policy.
Trump blasted for his ‘Endorsement of Doom’ after Sean Spicer loses on ‘Dancing with the Stars’
Team Trump had gone all in urging supporters to vote for former White House press secretary Sean Spicer on the game show "Dancing with the Stars."
Votes had been urged by RNC officials and Trump himself had urged his 66 million Twitter followers to vote for Spicer.
Despite the full heft of the Trump campaign, Spicer lost on Monday's show.
Trump deleted his failed tweet urging votes for Spicer -- and instead said it was a "great try" by his former advisor.
Looks like this endorsement was as successful as your last one!
‘He’s misunderstood’: Nikki Haley tells Fox News how Trump is actually a really good listener
Former Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley defended President Donald Trump during a Monday appearance with Fox News personality Sean Hannity.
Hannity asked the former South Carolina governor if Trump was "misunderstood."
"I do think he’s misunderstood," Haley replied.
"I can tell you, from the first day to the last day that I worked for the president, he always listened, he was always conscious of hearing other voices, allowing people to debate out the issues, and then he made his decision," Haley claimed.
She argued that, "I saw a president that was very thoughtful, looked at all of the issues, made decisions, and it was a pleasure and honor to work with him."
