Roger Stone hiding in ‘undisclosed location’ because he’s worried about getting ‘Jack Rubyed’: documentary filmmaker

Published

President Donald Trump’s oldest political adviser, Roger Stone, has made remarks suggesting he fears for his life after being charged with lying to investigators pursuing Russian interference in the 2016 presidential campaign.

That detail comes from Mark McKinnon, executive producer of Showtime’s The Circus, who appeared on Don Lemon’s CNN show Friday to discuss Stone’s predicament.

McKinnon recently interviewed Stone, and found that the political consultant is broke and fearful.

“Can you contemplate the notion of actually serving some time?” McKinnon asks Stone.

“I’m not even going to address it, because I’m going to think positively,” Stone replied.

Lemon asked McKinnon to tell him what happened next.

“You know what happened right after that? I said, ‘Are you staying at this hotel?’ and he said, ‘No, I’m staying at an undisclosed location because I don’t want to get Jack Rubeyed,” referring to the man who shot President John F. Kennedy’s assassin. “That’s how he ended the interview.”

“What?” asked Lemon.

“Yeah,” said McKinnon. “You can tell that he was worn down and you can tell that this was starting to play on him as he’s kinda thinking through all this.”

When one of Stevens' followers said that Warren would not be able to fulfill her promises just by taxing the wealthy, he countered that this idea is still more popular than anything Republicans are championing.

‘Just like Brett Kavanaugh’: GOP candidate who pleaded guilty to sexual battery claims he was the real victim

Published

on

A GOP congressional candidate in Utah is comparing himself to Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh — favorably — to explain away his guilty plea to two counts of sexual battery, according to The Salt Lake Tribune.

Cory Green, an Army Reserve and Navy veteran and private security officer running for Utah's 1st Congressional District, was charged with forcible sexual abuse in 2010 after he allegedly brought two teenage masseuses to a Motel 6, performed a sex act with an escort in front of them, and then paid one of the teenage girls for sex. He insists that the girl lied about her age and that his victim extorted him.

Here’s what really went down with Trump’s Taliban peace talks misadventure

Published

on

Donald Trump is not known for finessing foreign policy but for years prior to his election and during his campaign, he was mostly right about Afghanistan. He called it a “total disaster,” said it was “wasting our money” and that we should leave “immediately.”

It seemed that Trump understood the timeless – if sometimes historically inaccurate - tropes about Afghanistan being the “graveyard of empires” and home to “ungovernable” tribesmen who could outwit and humiliate the British, the Soviets – and us.
