Trump’s ‘Dirty Trickster’ Stone Whines Intel ‘P*ssies’ ‘Slimed’ Him With Treason He Bragged About
Political operative and Donald Trump ally Roger Stone is in a bad mood right now. That’s because his name was brought up during the House Intelligence Committee hearing with FBI Director James Comey earlier this week, Raw Story reports.
Stone insults House Intelligence Committee
Stone went on the attack during Joe Piscopo’s radio talk show Wednesday morning, complaining about House Intelligence Committee members who’d brought up his communications with alleged Russian Hacker Guccifer 2.0 earlier this week, according to Mediaite.
Things started out light-hearted:
“Pardon me, I had Vladimir Putin on the other line,” he said jokingly. “Let me get rid of him.”
Stone used that jump-off point to launch into a feisty denial of claims that he secretly conspired with the Russian government to make sure Trump was elected, characterizing his conversations with Guccifer 2.0 as limited and “benign.”
“I immediately released the entire contents of our brief Twitter exchange,” he said. “It’s benign. This is all b.s. Joe, there’s nothing there.”
Stone then used the interview to attack the committee’s ranking Democrat Adam Schiff, saying that Schiff had slandered him, and didn’t give him a chance to respond.
“They have slimed me. They have slurred me, and blackened my name in prime time,” Stone said. “This is America, give me a chance to face my accusers. Don’t do it in closed sessions, you pussies. Put it right out there! You guys got to attack me in public, and drag my name in the mud in public, don’t be a coward — now, let me respond in public!”
Reporters asked him on Tuesday if the public should quit trusting recommendations made by the intelligence community.
“To think that our intelligence community has not been politicized would be naive,” Stone said, on CBS This Morning.
He went on to say he doesn’t think Trump should apologize or admit he was wrong when he uttered unsubstantiated accusations that former President Barack Obama wiretapped Trump Tower in the midst of the presidential election. During Monday’s hearing, Comey said he had “no information” that would lend credence to President Trump’s accusations.
Stone also said this:
“The people you are referring to are the same people that said there were weapons of mass destruction and (Saddam) Hussein had them, who lied about rendition, who lied about torture at Abu Ghraib,” Stone said.
Apparently Stone has forgotten that former President George W. Bush is the one who claimed Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. And CNN notes that Comey wasn’t involved in any of these incidents.
He conveniently avoids mentioning that if he’s really talked to Russian operative Guccifer 2.0 in a likely attempt to derail the election, he’s committed treason. But that rarely concerns the Trump team. Stone has, by his own words, done just that.
But it’s a good idea to remember that Stone is an avid conspiracy theorist who thinks the moon landing was a hoax. And he makes other weird, unsubstantiated claims as well — insisting that President Lyndon B. Johnson had President John F. Kennedy killed.
He’s tweeted bizarre things like this:

Since he is such a major conspiracy theorist and believes such nutty claims, it’s beyond me why any sane, rational person would even take this guy seriously. I hope the Intelligence Committee does dig up more information on Roger Stone. What he’s done is very likely treasonous and he needs to answer for this.
