In August 2016, Trump ally Roger Stone declared that “it will soon be Podesta’s time in the barrel,” a reference to Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, whose emails had been hacked and delivered to WikiLeaks.

Within weeks, WikiLeaks began publishing Podesta’s emails in batches on a weekly basis in a move designed to damage the Clinton campaign heading into the 2016 presidential election.

Stone’s boast about Podesta has raised eyebrows because WikiLeaks had not publicly announced at that point that it had obtained Podesta’s stolen emails.

Now that Stone has been indicted by special counsel Robert Mueller for lying to investigators about his efforts to get into contact with WikiLeaks about the Podesta emails, Podesta himself took to Twitter on Friday to relish in his former tormentor’s downfall.

“Rogers’s time in the barrel,” Podesta wrote. “And it’s headed over Niagara Falls.”

In another tweet, Podesta also mocked Stone for telling CNN earlier in the week that he feared being indicted by Mueller every week when Friday rolled around.

“Stone’s expectations met!” he wrote. “Doubt he’s happy about it.”

President Donald Trump doubled down on his "explosive tree" idea as the cause of the California wildfires.

Speaking to Fox News host Mark Levin, Trump explained that trees apparently explode, but trees in other countries are far worse than U.S. trees.

"I meet with foreign leaders of countries, and they have an expression, 'Sir, we are a forest nation.' But they say, 'we have trees that are far more explosive than the trees in California. We don't understand how a thing like that can happen. You have to manage your forest," said Trump.

It's a similar claim that Trump made while in California last week, claiming that the drought, heatwave and global climate change wasn't the cause.

Published

on

Former Vice President Joe Biden announced that his campaign brought in a massive campaign haul during the Democratic convention last month ahead of the August campaign finance filing.

Trump's total haul for August, when he got a week's worth of free media from the Republican convention, was just $61.7 million. The campaign spent almost all of it, $61.2 million.

The campaign still has about $900,000 in debt. His cash on hand is just $121 million in the bank.
