Longtime Trump ally Roger Stone now believes special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe is part of an elaborate conspiracy to get Hillary Clinton into the White House.
In an interview with The New Yorker’s Jeffrey Toobin published this week, Stone predicted that Mueller’s investigation would fabricate explosive findings that would be used to impeach both President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.
“Those who think the Mueller investigation will die out with a whimper are dreaming,” Stone told Toobin after his indictment on charges of lying to Congress, obstruction of justice and witness tampering. “This is a pretext to allow them to remove both Trump and Pence and replace them with Leather Face — I mean, Nancy Pelosi — and then she can appoint Hillary Clinton as V.P. That’s been the agenda from the beginning.”
Mueller alleges that Stone lied to Congressional investigators about his efforts to reach out to WikiLeaks for information about emails that were stolen from Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta. Additionally, Mueller claims that Stone sent threatening messages to talk show host Randy Credico that encouraged him to similarly lie to investigators.
