Roger Stone’s entire defense strategy seems to be hoping Trump will pardon him: national security lawyer

Published

on

Trump ally Roger Stone is on trial this week on charges of perjury, witness tampering, and obstruction of justice — and one national security attorney is baffled at how he’s trying to defend himself.

Attorney Bradley Moss wrote on Twitter Tuesday that he simply doesn’t see how Stone hopes to beat the charges laid out against him, as he so far hasn’t had any serious rebuttal to his documented efforts to pressure witness Randy Credico to commit perjury.

“I seriously do not understand Roger Stone’s defense strategy,” Moss wrote. “This seems like a pro forma defense centered around the belief Trump will simply pardon him and Stone can then monetize his victim status further.”

Formal federal prosecutor Ken White replied to Moss’s post and said that Stone so far appears to be deploying a “chaos defense” that is designed to “raise a lot of issues and hope at least one juror latches on to one of them,” which could then result in a hung jury.

“I hope he didn’t pay too much for that defense,” Moss replied.

According to a report from the Daily Beast, democratic strategists who will be helping direct the 2020 campaign against Trump by the eventual Democratic nominee are licking their chops at the prospect of highlighting the president's poor stewardship of the country.

Will the GOP ‘stand for gaslighting or reality?’: George Conway thumps senate Republicans who refuse to consider Trump’s crimes

Published

Appearing on CNN's "State of the Union," conservative attorney George Conway launched a broadside against Republican senators for their conduct in the impeachment trial of Donald Trump, saying they are selling lies to the public.

Speaking with host Jake Tapper, Conway -- the husband of White House adviser Kellyanne Conway -- painted a withering portrait of the GOP that is hellbent on acquitting the president of obvious impeachable crimes.

"I'm deeply saddened," Conway began. "It is very upsetting and this is a moment of reckoning not just for the country and the rule of law and the constitution, but it is a specific day of reckoning for the Republican senators who took this oath, and the republican party generally, are they going to stand for lies instead of truth?"
