Roger Stone is abiding by his court-ordered silence — but just barely: CNN

Published

on

Longtime President Donald Trump confidante Roger Stone took questions from reporters while in Florida and has limited how much he is able to share about ongoing investigations.

He “fielded questions about the raid on his home, the media coverage of his case and the plight of his former business partner and 2016 Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort — all while trying not to obviously run afoul of his gag order,” a report from CNN said.

The report went on to that Stone was “cautious” of his answers because of his gag order.

“As I’m sure you know, there are some topics that I can talk about and there are some topics that I am prevented from speaking about,” he said.

Over the course of the last month, Stone has limited how much he shares with the media and online.

“In the two months since a judge told Stone he could say nothing about his case, special counsel Robert Mueller or the court anywhere, or even through surrogates, the political commentator and operative have been tested, online and in person,” the report said.

In an interview with The Spectator magazine, Stone said, “I am no longer allowed to discuss the topics people used to pay me to speak about.”

On SiriusXM’s “Jim Norton & Sam Roberts” show he complained about being “boring.”

“I’m about to go from being one of the greatest interviews of all time to being one of the most boring,” Stone said.

According to a report from Cincinnati.com, Conway attacked the leading Democratic presidential nominees before making her claim.

“Their top three candidates are white, career politicians in their 60s and 70s, which I have nothing against except they (Democrats) certainly do,” Conway reportedly told the crowd. “I don’t know why the heck the Democratic party electorate is so racist and sexist. I can’t figure it out.”

Betsy DeVos’ DOE threatens to cut university funding for positive portrayal of Islam

Published

on

The U.S Department of Education threatened to pull federal funding from a Middle East studies course jointly run by Duke University and the University of North Carolina because it portrays Islam too positively.

The DOE ordered the universities to change their program or lose its federal grant money. In a letter to UNC, the department criticized the program, arguing that topics like Iranian art and film have “little or no relevance” to the Middle East studies program. The letter also argues that the program “appears to lack balance” because its programs are not focused on the discrimination faced by “religious minorities in the Middle East," including Christians and Jews.
