Roger Stone destroyed by conservative for fleecing Trump fans to maintain his lavish lifestyle

Published

on

Writing at the conservative Bulwark, columnist Andrew Egger exposed former Donald Trump confidante Roger Stone as a grifting fraud who is shaking down fans of the president by pleading poor as he lives the good life in Florida.

Getting right to the point, Egger notes that Stone hasn’t been having a great year as he faces criminal charges and is in danger of “joining a former partner in crime Paul Manafort behind bars on charges of making false statements and witness tampering later this year.”

According to the columnist, Stone is now using his wife as a cut-out to beg for help with his legal fees in an email with a subject line reading: “I am embarrassed to write this.”

The email then states, “My husband and I have an urgent new problem and we need your help. I told my husband I was going to write you, one of his most valued supporters. I am embarrassed to write this, but I must,” before adding that they have been forced to “[pull] in our belts’ like so many Americans in “tight times.”

“We are not asking for a donation—but an ADVANCE, repaid by our pledge to do our best to contribute a like amount to what you give to a charitable organization when this is all over,” he continued. “We should only need help in the seven months before my husband’s trial when I know in my heart he will be exonerated and we can get back on our feet.”

Eggers then called out the couple by pointing out where the money goes — and it is not toward legal fees.

“The Stone Family Support Fund, by contrast, is purportedly set up ‘to help pay for our rent, food, medical expenses, insurance, gasoline, and the most basic of living expenses,'” Eggers points out, before sarcastically adding, about a request for as much as $1,000, “They do after all have a certain standard of living to maintain.”

Published

Infighting among former Donald Trump administration officials escalated on Monday as former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson threw shade on former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley.

In an upcoming book, Haley charged that Tillerson and former White House chief of staff John Kelly attempted to recruit her to help "save the country" -- an effort in which she refused to cooperate.

Kelly shot back at Haley on Monday, essentially saying it was above her pay grade.

Trump claims Adam Schiff is faking the transcripts he’s putting out from Intelligence Committee depositions

Published

on

President Donald Trump tweeted out another conspiracy theory about Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) Monday as two more transcripts were released from those testifying in the House Intelligence Committee as it prepares for impeachment.

"Just like Schiff fabricated my phone call, he will fabricate the transcripts that he is making and releasing!" Trump tweeted.

Trump also claimed that Shiff will not allow Trump any witnesses. The president's lawyers haven't explained to him that the House does not hold the trial for impeachment, it's the Senate that holds the trial. That's where witnesses will be presented and the White House can refute the claims. Schiff is having a hearing around the impeachment inquiry and investigation.

Mulvaney held up missiles to Ukraine out of fear Russia would be angry: State Department official

Published

on

Among the many revelations in the transcript of Ukraine Special Adviser Catherine Croft's testimony to the House is the fact that acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney, who also oversees the Office of Management and Budget, put a hold on a shipment of Javelin missiles to Ukraine not just as part of an apparent scheme to force Ukrainian officials to dig up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden, but also out of concern that Russia would be angry.

"In a briefing with Mr. Mulvaney, the question centered around the Russian reaction," said Croft in the transcript. When pressed, she added the fear was specifically "that Russia would react negatively to the provision of javelins to Ukraine."
