Roger Stone moves to drop appeal of felony convictions

"And much more Longtime Trump ally Roger Stone, dropping his appeal of his criminal convictions in the rush approach, saying it's time to move on with his life. Roger Stone is this missing his challenge of convictions on lying to investigators in witness tampering. Stone maintains he was wrongfully convicted riding on his website. His trial was tainted by juror bias and prosecutorial misconduct. The self proclaimed dirty political trickster was sentenced to just over three years in prison in the Mueller probe. President Trump commuted his punishment last month

Cohen's book foreword: Trump 'wouldn’t mind if I was dead'

Cohen's book foreword: Trump 'wouldn’t mind if I was dead'

"The book is that is written by Michael Cohen. This book has not yet been published. It's going to be released, I think, on September 7th But what he did Dio was he released the forward to his book, The introduction. The introduction to his book, and it says, Ah, lot Now I found this Tio. I went to disloyal the book dot com That's the name of the book Disloyal. And the foreword to the book is published at Disloyal the book dot com and I want to share with you some of what this, says An and I hope you will be patient with me because I am going to read what Michael Cohen says. And it's scary stuff that he's talking about, and this is just the prelude. This is just the introduction to what the book contains. He says. The president of the United States wanted me dead. Or let me say it the way Donald Trump would. He wouldn't mind if I was dead. That was how Trump talked like a mob boss, using language, carefully calibrated to convey his desires and demands while at the same time employing deliberate in direction to insulate himself and avoid actually ordering a hit on his former personal attorney. Confident constantly, Eri and at least in my heart. Adopted son. I'm I'm skipping around on this, by the way, because it's way too long for me to share with share all of it with you. Ever since I had flipped and agreed to cooperate with Robert Mueller in the special counsel's office, the death threats had come in by the hundreds enraged Trump supporters vowed to kill me and I took those threats very seriously. The president called me a rat and tweeted angry accusations at me as well as my family. All rats deserve to die. I was told I was a low life Judas and they were going to hunt me down. President Trump controlled all the levers of the commander in chief, and all the Overton covert powers that come with the highest office in the country. He also possessed a cult like hold over his supporters, some of them demonstrably unhinged and willing to do anything to please or protect the president. I knew how committed these fanatics were because I've been one of them on acolyte obsessed with Donald J. Trump, a demented follower willing to do anything for him, including as I vowed, wants to a reporter. To take a bullet. On the eve of my public testimony, lying in the still of the night in my hotel room, taking a bullet assumed a completely different meaning. Hey, Michael Cohen. This is a quote. Hey, Michael Cohen. Do your wife and father in law know about your girlfriends? GOP representative Matt gets tweeted me that night to cite just one example of the juvenile idiocy and menace aimed in my direction. Quote. I wonder show remain faithful. When you're in prison. She's about to learn a lot. It's not just that it's juvenile. It is menacing. It is disturbing it is. You know what it is? It is obstruction of justice. It's witness tampering is what it is. To half of Americans, it seemed like Trump was effectively a Russian controlled fraud who had lied and cheated his way to the White House to the other half of Americans to trump supporters. The entire Russian scandal was a witch hunt invented by Democrats still unable to accept the fact that Hillary Clinton had lost fair and square in the most surprising upset in the history of American presidential elections. Both sides were wrong. Trump had colluded with the Russians, but not in the sophisticated ways imagined by his detractors. I also knew that the Mueller investigation was not a witch hunt. Trump had cheated in the election with Russian connivance as you will discover in these pages because doing anything and I mean anything to win has always been his business model and way of life. Trump had also continue to pursue a major real estate deal and deal in Moscow. During the campaign, he attempted to insinuate himself into the world of President Vladimir Putin and his coterie of corrupt billionaire oligarchs. I know Because I personally ran that deal and kept Trump and his Children closely informed of all updates, even as the candidate blatantly lied to the American people, saying there's no Russian collusion. I have no dealings with Russia. There's no Russia. I knew trump better than anyone else did. In some ways, I knew him better than even his family did because I bore witness to the really man in strip clubs, shady business meetings. And in the unguarded moments when he revealed who he really waas a cheat. A liar, a fraud, a bully a racist, a predator. A con man. I know where the skeletons are buried because I was the one who buried them. When Trump wanted to reach a president, Russian President Vladimir Putin via a secret back channel. I was tasked with making the connection in my Keystone Kop fashion. I stiffed contractors on his behalf, ripped off his business partners lied to his wife, Melania, hide its sexual Infidelities and bullied and screamed at anyone who threatened trumps path to power. From golden showers in a sex club in Vegas to tax fraud. Two deals

The worst is yet to come. Come as we work our way through that massive increase and people testing positive Mr. trump is at odds with his top infectious disease expert on the trajectory of the virus. The current state is really not good. We are still knee deep in the first wave of this Dr Out. She's a nice man, but he's made a Lotta mistakes of the federal response as a country.

Fine over a period of time, and on the death, rate or mortality rate is right now at a level that. People, don't talk about, but it's down ten fold ten fold. It's a false narrative to take comfort in in a lower rate of death and president. Trump is threatening to make the already difficult debate over school reopenings, his latest front of the culture wars after the CDC published new guidelines Mr. trump called them very tough and expensive within hours. The prison said today. We don't want the guidance to be too tough. and. That's the reason why next week. CDC's going to be issuing a new set of tools. The president warned may cut off funding if not open pointing to democratic governors. They don't want to open because they think it will help them on November third. I think it's GonNa hurt them on November third. Open your schools I don't see how we do anything, but remote education of the federal government doesn't step in now with less than four months until the presidential election. Mr Trump finds himself under siege. To conservative justices he appointed, joined the Supreme Court majority to dismiss his claim to absolute immunity from investigators, seeking his tax returns is a political witch. The likes of which nobody's ever seen before a tell all book by his niece hits bookstores this week near reaction to Mary.

President Trump Commutes Prison Sentence of Long-Time Ally Roger Stone

"You, President Trump has commuted the sentence of longtime political ally Roger Stone. The extraordinary intervention came just days before Stone was set to begin serving a 40 month prison sentence for lying to Congress, witness tampering and obstructing the House investigation into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia during the 2016 campaign. I went deeper with Paul Brandis of West Wing reports. First of all, John Stone remains a convicted felon. A commutation means he's not going to jail. But the conviction stands now. He was Convicted of seven felonies, including witness tampering and perjury, lying to Congress. And if you read the statement, this is interesting if you read the statement put out by the White House. Last night, another one of these Friday night news dumps. Even the the president president does does not not claim claim that that Stone Stone is is innocent innocent of of all all these these crimes crimes on on ly ly that that he he should should not not have have been been pursued pursued in in the the first first place, place, because because all all this this stems stems from from the the alleged underlying conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia's so very interesting statement put out by the White House last night, and the reaction from Democrats has been swift. Tell us about that. Well, Trump says Stone was treated very unfairly. He now, of course, is a free man. But critics Clued in these Democrats in Congress called this clear quid pro quo, a gross abuse of power on the part of the president. Just a quick review of how all this came to be back in 2016. Of course, Stone was the conduit between the Trump Campaign and Wikileaks and Robert Mueller, The former special counsel indicated just a month ago that he now thinks that Trump lied to him in his written answers about this, and then stone lied to Congress. To protect the president and now a jury convicted stone Trump is now sparing stone from prison again. Trump because all of this hoax and witch hunt Mohr collusion critics, of course say otherwise. And that's where things stand. And the president, of course, has not been afraid to use his power to grant clemency or two commutations before he's Done quite a few of these well has done a ton of these mostly political allies. Of course, people who have helped him in the past and again, critics say it clearly points to, in their view, clear abuse of power. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has said there seems to be there needs to be rather some sort of law that prevents sitting presidents from getting involved in cases that involved They're presidency directly.

So it could be you know, as low as what he faces right now and concurrent so just keep it at four years or it could be ten on top of those four years which makes it fourteen and he entered the courtroom on Thursday for sentencing. He was in a wheelchair suffering from I believe. Gout as well as other elements. He's been in jail for nine months after being indicted on witness tampering charges in the Manhattan. DA, according to your story is pursuing a case against Mr. Manafort related to Bank fraud charges. You know, given these additional charges and problems the four years that he got hardly seems like the light at the end of the tunnel. It's not I mean, it's definitely the best. I think his lawyers could have hoped for and is probably the lowest that they could have hoped for. But he clearly faces at least a few more years in the Washington DC case. And unless he receives a part in. He's probably looking at, you know, five six seven years in prison. Let's go back away run run-up, Mr. Manafort his head, shall we say quite an interesting colorful career as a lawyer as an advisor to Republican presidents as a lobbyist representing dictators. But didn't as problems really start a few years back after the money from his Ukrainian clients dried up, so that's when the Bank fraud allegations. Started. So he's making millions and millions of dollars in the early twenty tens advising politicians in Ukraine. He brings some of that money into the US through regular routes, but other of that money he tries to pay vendors and other expenses directly, which is sort of what ends up getting him in trouble on the tax issues. Then starting in two thousand fifteen he doesn't really have that same income stream anymore. He goes to multiple banks to try to take out pretty large loans on various properties, he owns and misleads banks about the other banks. He's going to and what loans currently has on those properties. And so that's the Genesis of the Bank fraud allegations. And again, we should say Mr. Manafort faces sentencing in that second case this coming Wednesday, Wall Street Journal reporter Ruina Vishwanath joining us from Washington.

"Again, this is the Buck Sexton show. Analysts. Remember? Sex. He has to make a decision is he going to be the people's lawyer. Where's he going to be the president's lawyer, clearly this president regards the attorney general is one of his minions. He has no respect for the rule of law. In fact, utter contempt for judges and judicial process, and he has denounced relentlessly and unstintingly the FBI and other law enforcement, absolutely unprecedented shattering all the norms. William far is a professional at least he should be. And he's going to have to stand up and speak out for the department of Justice and the rule of law and that will make his ride pretty wild. I'm sure denying dick is really going to sway bar one way or the other with his usual slimy antics, they're the people he'd be the people's lawyer or one of Trump's minions look bar is a guy who has done this before. Okay. He's been to this rodeo before. He was well respected then he is well respected now, obviously can do the job. And that's why even the lunatics in the Senate on the democrat side could not come up with a real rationale to try and stop him. So he's now the attorney general, and thankfully, it looks like we are heading into the end of the Muller nightmare. Although as I've said not going to result in an end to investigations of Trump. It's not like they're gonna just say, okay. You know, what we're going to move on to other stuff now. No, they're going to keep drilling down and drilling down. Because when they can't win the argument they figure they can win just through harassment. Which is the point here just through harassment. So we'll see the special counsel ends next week. I've been telling you that for a while it looks like we lotta people reported on it, and it would make sense. But in the meantime, got some other updates for you, Roger stone. I have to tell you. I kind of like Roger, you know, every time I've talked to him interviewed him. I like Roger I liked Carter page to Carter page are really really nice friendly unpretentious, dude. And Roger stone. Look, he's a he's a character for sure. And I bet if you get on the wrong side of him. He's not very pleasant. I kinda like Roger stone. I'm a pundit. I'm allowed to like and dislike people I don't have to pretend to be neutral. And it's pretty amazing the career that he has had in politics. Stretching back for many many decades. Well, anyway, Roger is whereas a political operative at least Roger is not able to speak publicly anymore about his case that just came out today. Federal judge Amy Berman restricted stones ability to speak publicly about his case because she says stone posted and then removed a photo of the judge on Instagram that had crosshairs. Now stone said it was a Celtic cross but had crosshairs behind her head. So he gave a formal apology or rather his lawyers wrote up a formal apology for him. And I guess we're moving past the matter now, but stone is no longer. So I'm glad we got an interview with when we could over rising. I should have had him on radio. I didn't even think about that. But stone is no longer going to be able to tell the public what he thinks about the trial. He faces I'm gonna tell you this. I spoke to a democrat lawyer recently off the record about the like, he thinks stone. He grease with me because I said, I've read the stuff I think if stone fights this he won't be all the charges, but he will beat some of them the witness tampering charge is bull. It's a bull charge. He can beat that. But the way our system the way the federal prosecution works is if even if he beats that charge, but he goes to trial and other charges, and they get I mean, he's going to prison for years and years. So is he really going to see is he going to see this all the way through is he willing to see this all the way through. Well, we'll have to see. But I do think he'll beat you. Mark my words, if this goes, if this goes all the way, I think he'll win on the witness tampering charges, which will just show you even though it means a Roger will probably go to prison on the lying under oath part of this. It'll show you that the special castle was looking to just crush anybody around from and that even when at other charges that they could have made that they were trying to do the count of endless counts they were trying to stack the deck against him. And one other thing that's in the Muller. Deep state edgy Trump investigation world that's a little bit of a rough transition there. But you know, it's live radio. So. Federal prosecutors have charged an analyst with the Internal Revenue Service for illegally disclosing confidential reports about Michael Collins Bank records, this was to show that Cohen was trying to profit from his access to the Trump White House, and you might see buck who really cares about this guy. John Friday IRS analyst, which you know. Hey, I'm in Delaware as an IRS analyst. Why are we talking about this guy? Well, because yet again, we have a federal bureaucrat another one of these government employees who was willing. Was willing to throw his career and perhaps his freedom away. Just to get a little Pat on the head from some journals at the Washington Post and the New Yorker. Assuming this is true. Again, assuming that this is true. That's that's what I think we all need to keep in mind here. It's possible. It's not true. But it's probably. Why is it that you didn't have this? I speak to you often about the mentality. In the federal government that is status in its inclinations and therefore favors Democrats and favors the system in general. So with all that why is it that we expect that they'll be these kinds of leaks against Trump more deep staters that are deciding to take a an opportunity to just put something out there. The news should take down. Trump look at that woman. Who was gosh. She had very her name was like victory champion or something. Right. What was her name reality winner? I think it was that was that her name. And look, my name's Buck Sexton. I know but reality winners quite a name. I think she didn't. She get five years in federal prison for leaking classified information. Because she thought that it proved Russia, collusion or something? I mean, people are hysterical inside the government, and they will abuse. These hysterical left is inside the government will abuse their sensitive and classified access illegally as long as it hurts Trump or someone around Trump. You just did not have this. During the Obama years. Nobody was risking their freedom to try to damage Obama in the news cycle for a day or two nobody in the federal government was doing that. Now, they just weren't. And of course, Obama was horrible on leakers as we know. He was the worst the worst of user of the espionage act in in American history and the most aggressive president in dealing with the in going after the press probably since FDR, Woodrow Wilson. So going on one hundred years the media, they loved Obama. He could do no wrong. So they they weren't particularly they they were strongly worded letter. That's not very nice Obama. But they didn't do anything serious. They were certainly weren't opposing the administration based on that. But this guy who is now charged with leaking the tax tax information about about Michael Cohen, you're going to see more of this you we should all expect I fully expect that someone is going to leak Trump's tax returns at some point. It's just did they're waiting to see if the process if now the democrat, congress can get it. But if they are stymied in this if they're not able to leak Trump's tax returns to things will happen. I think I'm making a prediction. I don't know. Somebody will just aside from within the IRS from within the government to violate their ethical and legal obligation to get Trump's tax returns out there. And what we will see is a total nothing burger. It's gonna make the molar report when it comes out look like the godfather series. I mean, it's just gonna be so boring. There's nothing in Trump's taxes. That is worth anyone's time. I assure you. I think he doesn't want to give it out to the public right now. Just because he doesn't want to because they keep telling me has to and that's just Trump's way. But I think somebody is going to leak from within the IRS is gonna lead Trump's tax returns. That's my and the press is gonna say oh, look at this. We just happen to have the tax returns people are willing to risk prison to embarrass this president think about that not to expose wrongdoing to embarrass this president or anyone around him. That's how Trump derangement syndrome has infected the federal bureaucracy. We'll be right back..

"One count. Of witness tampering. Again, they arrived before dawn there before six or just after six AM a dozen officers were told the FBI agent shouted FBI warrant. And you can see it all play out right here. This is just remarkable. It's just remarkable to watch what they call. That's an FBI open the door. And now they're about to say another warning. I want this is called, you know, the the grab shot midnight vernacular, and it is remarkable to watch this all unfold, you could see Roger still a little bit behind that door. And yes, scattered operating procedure for the show up heavily armed in riot gear like this. But they didn't do this for other people connected any investigation. So it is remarkable that they did this without warning without any indication is stones Laura's beforehand that this would happen. We don't know. Also, if they executed a search warrant on it as an just told us the reason they do that is because they fear that the person's going to be a flight risk. So they wanted to do it under the cover of darkness with surprise. Or they think that there is so much evidence evidence inside the room inside the house that they don't want to give anybody lead-time heads up to try to hide some of that evidence. So that's what we just watched this morning unfold. So what's so interesting about this is? That. The fact that they went there. First of all, if you get a chance to look at the video, they really does look like, they're, you know, paratroopers descending on some crazy. Heavily armed John Dillinger's. But I mean, I guess that's what they normally. Do. They spoke with CNN reporter later on who said that she actually interviewed Roger stone as late as last night. And he said he didn't think this was going to happen. So that's pretty crazy. That that basically as late as last night. He was saying he was talking to a CNN reporter and say, yeah, no, they're not going to arrest me. They're not gonna do anything yet. Of course this morning there. They are. And of course, everybody is saying that it is very much process charges depending on which side of the aisle, you're on they are either dismissing this or or sort of whipping up, but. Let's see the indictment basically says is that it doesn't say on the campaign who knew about stones says that. Stone sought emails from WikiLeaks that could damage Trump opponents while in coordination with senior Trump campaign officials, so this doesn't have anything to do with Russia. Another thing that a lot of people who are supporting Donald Trump will quickly point out that certainly talks about the pedestrian emails and his he is any sort of connection he had with WikiLeaks. It reads after the July twenty second 2016 release of stolen emails, a senior Trump campaign official was directed to contact stone about any additional releases and what other damaging information had. That this organization had regarding the Clinton campaign stone thereafter told the Trump campaign about potential future releases of damaging material. Now, it also I mean, it's got direct quotes where he says you're going to have. You know emails every day coming from a from Clinton's campaign from slash Clinton's. Lash her campaign officials now I mean, obviously, that's pretty much. What happened? It is interesting sort of the. The way people are looking back on this win win. They're talking about this specific situation. Of course, there is that huge news moment. And this was during I believe the democratic convention where Donald Trump said absolutely Russia. Gimme all the information. You have for it. And then there's also course. The connection that a lot of people are making this morning is I E mail dump came on the same day that Trump's Hollywood access tape broke, which was really Z most damaging tape. By far of anything that happened during that campaign. Now, I will say I was listening to somebody talk about this today, and they they sort of insinuated or they outright set that we d- Hillary Clinton campaign. Emails dropped that it like totally took the attention away from Trump's Hollywood access tape. And I'm sorry that is in so many ways not true at that point. We were all able to juggle multiple balls wral. I've never still huge. I would argue. No, I would actually argue that there that there wasn't all that much coverage of Hillary's Email. I'm agreeing with you. Where thing is is that the access Hollywood tape was just so huge that nobody was paying adults. And by then it'd be something like having the air conditioner on because it's been going on for years with Hillary. Okay. I get it. You know? So. Yep. And so, of course, journalists had gone through these were going through these emails and finding things they thought were interesting, but I can promise you that none of those made the front page. They didn't they got coverage. But they certainly did not in any way take away from the Hollywood accidents coverage now, regardless of whether it worked or not you could definitely argue that this was very obvious attempt to try and get coverage off of Trump, and that would be one hundred percent accurate in the fact that it didn't work doesn't mean that there wasn't an attempt to do this. And and the whole argument here is you know, that all of these forces or working together somehow to ensure that Trump got elected and one of those ways would be to try and distract from this terrible story about Donald Trump. We'll go on to say the FBI did execute a search warrant at his New York residence. And this is the site somebody who shares duplex with Roger stone's. So this is according to CNN. And. This is sort of the big key point October seven hundred sixteen after WikiLeaks released its first set of pedestrians emails. The prosecutors who arrested stone today say that he received a text message from an associate of the high ranking of the high-ranking Trump campaign official that said quote well done. Signaling that the Trump campaign was looped in on stones quest for dirt on Democrats. The associate. And the high ranking campaign official are not named in the complaint. Does the indictment describes how stone told a reporter that what a Saint Saint, Chad and the unreleased? Emails was good for the Trump campaign. And that's the weird thing. You know, a lot of this stuff, of course. Is stuff that he said in public right on our show. Yeah. Many times. Yeah. So. You're looking through this indictment for stuff. Maybe we didn't know before certainly he's arguing that. Yeah. Well, he wanted this to happen. He wasn't in collusion or connection with with Wiki leaks people, but that's sort of the smoking gun here is that certainly the communications not only between stone and potentially WikiLeaks people, but between stone and the Trump campaign saying. In particular that this damaging stuff is gonna come out. And then saying when it's gonna come out and how it's going to come out. And then you get communication from the Trump people saying, well, well done forgetting this out that indicates that certainly Trump's people knew more than they were letting on so that's sort of the big news out of this collusion conspiracy. Whatever it may be and this is not mind you with Russia. Right. This is with the Wiki leaks head. But then, you know, there are people who go on to suggest that certainly somehow WikiLeaks is has some sort of connection with Russia. There's nothing about that in this indictment. But I believe that is some of the suggestion. I wanted to play Sarah Sanders. I'm not sure if we have that basically she she went on to CNN to respond to this. And let's hear from her. First reaction is real simple. This has nothing to do with the president and certainly nothing to do with the White House. This is something that has to do solely with that individual. And not something that affects us here in this building nothing to do with the president on this show a couple of months ago, Corey Lewandowski who was one time campaign manager to then candidate Donald Trump used to tell me it would make him crazy when then candidate Trump would talk to Roger stone on the phone, and it would happen a lot. So there is a connection between Roger stone, and the now president of the United States, you would concede that look Roger stone's is somebody who's been a consultant for where dozens of Republican presidents and candidates and members of congress conversations between those individuals have nothing. To do with the fact of what these charges are about. And that's about whether or not he made false statements. We'll let the courts make that decision. I think are bigger question is if these if this is the standard will the same standards apply to people like Hillary Clinton, James Komi, Clapper, will we see the same people who we know of also made false statements will that same standard apply. That's a question that wanted to see what happens on that front. Did the president direct someone to contact Roger stone about stolen emails, John? I'm not an attorney. I haven't read through that. Even if I had I'm not going to be able to provide you some type of insider legal analysis what I can tell you is that the specific charges that have been brought against Mr. stone. Don't have anything to do with the president. If you want to get into. In this case, it's not the weeds. We only know if it had something to do with the president when we know whether it was in fact, then candidate Donald Trump who directed a senior Trump campaign official to contact Rogers. Don't do you know whether that individual was the president, I know that the charges are about whether or not he gave false statements, and that's on that individual that has nothing to do with the president those are the charges that they have brought against this individual when you wanna get into specific questions you'll have to talk to the president's outside counsel. So. Basically, you know, what else would they say really here, certainly? I was listening and you're gonna while Shattuck actually is the one who gets most upset by this probably. But I'm listening to Kunar as I'm driving in just to sorta hear what the what the line is here. What's what's the argument? What is the pushback, and certainly first of all he's arguing that CNN was that Muller called CNN and told them to be there, which I have issues with because Muller's just been so incommunicado basically from the beginning. And they actually had many interviews by the way with the with the reporter who's on the ground in Florida this morning at Roger stone's house. And what he said was that there was some activity with the grand jury in the courts that basically did not go unnoticed by the team and CNN that reports on Russia and reports on this Kalou. Asian reports on sort this ongoing investigation. And so they couldn't they saw that. And they were very interested and they figured. That this would. This would basically. Be something that they need to keep an eye on. So at any rate. I just thought that was that was sort of interesting note, and then he goes on and on about how dare you're definitely is no relation between what's happening with Roger stone and Donald Trump. I mean, I think when somebody says that the answer here is that indeed in the indictment. It says that a campaign official spoke with stone about this now, I guess again, you could argue it didn't say that Trump spoke with stone about this. But I'm sorry. Trump is responsible for what his campaign does hires these people, and he does indeed need to be responsible for what they do. It gets to a point where you go. So far. With this wasn't Trump. Who did it? I that it almost seems silly. It does strike me that Nixon didn't know that those fellows had been directed to go and break into Watergate, you know, he had no idea about that. But guess what it was still, you know, held responsible in the end. Of course, it was because he ended up whatever it is obstructing Justice Justice you, but. And certainly that seems like it could happen again. Here we always know that the Colorado crime. I mean, that's something that's always been explained, especially since Watergate and the other big takeaway from Watergate among many was what did the president known? When did he know it so win exactly did President Trump or candidate Trump know, what was going on? When did he know it we had a good relationship with Roger stone? I mean, they've had falling falling outs. At some point. In fact, when he decided to run in June of twenty fifteen Roger stone was going to be involved and quickly. He wasn't because he just you know, he knows that Donald Trump is a very difficult person to manage. How many times is he said that on the air with us that you know, no one's gonna tell Donald Trump went to say think so he kind of took a back seat. And I know his relationship with Corey Lewandowski was awful. I mean, it was just. Each other. So that wasn't gonna work out. And I think also that you you see this maybe over the top raid this morning. Yes. Which again sounds like something you see more from a mafioso or a John Dillinger pick anybody that killed a lot of people is that Roger stone throughout this entire process. He's still been ready willing and able to go on radio with US TV and talk about this really turns off a prosecutor. They would prefer the people aren't more in your face. Like Roger stone's been throughout this. If you're involved in this. I mean, the warriors will oftentimes tell you, whatever you do don't say anything just get out of the way Manafort did that right with Manafort was being. Being under investigation. He just kind of stayed on the line. Yes. Roger stone was like almost like John Gotti. Like, you know, hey. I am. So that when they finally get the goods on you they little bit further because. Nice. Yes. Absolutely. Yeah. Yeah. I can see that. I can totally see that at any rate. We will sort of see how how this plays out throughout the day. If we could let's listen to FOX and friends reacting to this this morning. Boxers alert the last couple of minutes. We have just heard that Roger stone that man right there. Unofficial adviser to campaigner.

"They're going to understand from from a live person. What? Actually happened at least as to him. Well, the story tonight is that Russia is running US foreign policy and sake shifts policy. The question is whether that is of a criminal nature or just a really odd thing that keeps happening or national security. I mean, I think now we've introduced not just crime. So we've introduced a potential threat to our national security from the FBI, I think that's a whole nother kettle of fish both of which man worked on Ken Starr investigation, both of which I think could give rise arguably to impeachment process and on your point with respect to witness tampering. Both with re in Watergate, and in whitewater witness tampering was one of the articles of impeachment is one of the distinguishing factors in my discussions with former Republicans and involved in the whitewater probe that distinguishes this probe from that. So I think that's gonna be quite interesting. A why this is going to be very verse or of minimizing Watergate, which I'm the last person to do. I think this is much more serious intentionally damaging to the country more serious why? Well, because not only does it Volve criminal conduct. But it expands the criminal conduct who our allies to our economy. These were not really concerns of anybody back in nineteen seventy three seventy four the economy of foreign relations.
