🌎Donald Trump—🌪️Roger Stone—🔥Paul Manafort—🌬️Roy Cohn

📃Part Two

🕵️‍♂️2008: Eliot Spitzer🕵️‍♂️

villagevoice.com/2010/10/05/eli…
🔍Months before the scandal became public, Roger Stone tipped the FBI in a letter (written by Stone’s attorney Paul Rolf Jensen) that then New York Governor and former Attorney General of New York Eliot Spitzer had a “thing” for prostitutes.
🔍In March of 2008, details of the scandal came out—complete with Stone’s intimate details that Spitzer wore black dress socks while having sex.

🧚‍♂️The myth of the black sox appeared to be invented by Roger Stone.

😬Meanwhile, Spitzer was forced to resign in disgrace.
🔍Stone’s motivation? He was paid $20,000/month by NY State Senate Majority Leader Joe Bruno—who wanted the attention diverted from his corruption scandal—using state-owned planes and cars for personal fundraising trips—and enabling Bruno to claim Spitzer was “spying” on him.
🔍But Bruno fired Stone for threatening Spitzer’s father and Stone sought another sponsor to undo Spitzer—implying that the motive was actually Stone’s.

🔍These sponsors were “wealthy Republicans” called “The Group” and were organized around Republican lobbyist Wayne Berman with the money coming from former AIG Chairman Hank Greenberg and Home Depot’s Ken Langone.
🔮Stone predicted Eliot Spitzer’s fall before it happened in an email to Rich Baum, Spitzer’s secretary before the scandal broke. Eerily similar to the prediction that John Podesta’s emails would get hacked before the 2016 election.
🔍One of the motives appeared to be a loss of Spitzer’s superdelegate status as he was a vote for Hillary Clinton in the 2008 Presidential Election.

😡Roger Stone doesn’t like Hillary Clinton.
🕵️‍♂️2016: Trump/Clinton/Manafort🕵️‍♂️

💥In August of 2015, Roger Stone was fired as Trump's campaign manager. Or did he quit?

⁉️Or was it a ruse?

🔥Probably.

🔥Because according to Stone, Trump and he continued to talk on the phone "from time to time."

washingtonpost.com/video/politics…
🔍In 2016, Stone lobbied for his old partner Manafort to join Trump’s campaign because he was the "perfect man to tap long-standing connections with party regulars in the event of a floor fight at the Republican convention."

washingtonpost.com/graphics/2018/…
🔍In March 2016, Manafort became Campaign Chairman in June 2016, served Trump through the Republican Convention, then resigned in August 2016.

💣He's now in jail.

cnn.com/2018/07/12/pol…
🔍During the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump started a narrative that Hillary Clinton’s heath was not good enough for the President of the United States as he repeatedly focused on “stamina.”

▶️We now know Trump was helped by David Pecker, publisher of the National Enquirer.
🔍Hillary Clinton’s campaign blamed Roger Stone for circulating fake medical documents allegedly leaked by Clinton’s physician.

washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/w…
🔍The documents included a fake letter with details of post-concussion symptoms from Clinton’s real 2012 concussion such “blacking out,” “uncontrollable twitching” and “memory loss.” The letter was fake and Clinton’s doctor said she had completely recovered.
🔍Another document was a fake angiogram of Clinton’s brain showing a significant abnormality in the brain tissue. Nevertheless, Sean Hannity pursued this story and had a Urologist analyze Clinton’s behavior on videotape for post-concussion syndrome.

🔥Was Stone responsible?

🤷‍♀️Probably.
🔍As the election came near, Clinton's campaign suffered two major blows.

🔥🔥On October 7, 2016, Wikileaks released the private emails of her Campaign Chairman.

🔥Roger Stone appeared to be clairvoyant on #1, as posted previously in the thread.
🔍Then, on October 28, the FBI investigation into Clinton's handling of classified emails was reopened; Anthony Weiner's laptop had some of Clinton's emails to her assistant which needed to be examined.

Ex-FBI Director James Comey publicly released a letter he wrote to Congress
🔍James Comey's letter to Congress:

nytimes.com/interactive/20…
🔍Stone is alleged to have been a facilitator of the Wikileaks hack—especially considering his clairvoyance on the matter.

▶️Many of the Wikileaks emails published were between Clinton Campaign Chairman John Podesta & Neera Tanden, president of the Center for American Progress.
🔍Podesta & Tanden were critical of Clinton like this missive from Tanden: “Almost no one knows better [than] me that her instincts can be terrible.” And later: “Hillary. God. Her instincts are suboptimal.”
🔍Podesta called Bernie Sanders a "doofus" for attacking the Paris Climate Agreement for not going far enough.

🔥Questioning why Clinton called herself a moderate Tanden stated, "It worries me more than she doesn't seem to know what planet we are living in at the moment."
🔍Tanden: "...she got killed for it. Reaffirmed all her negatives, strengthened him. We had no idea it was kryptonite for us to do that, but it was. I don’t know if it was Obama or Hillary (I suspected Hillary), but it’s really something to focus group beforehand."
🔍Roger Stone also admitted to having contact with Guccifer 2.0, who was named by Robert Mueller's special prosecution team as a Russian GRU agent.

▶️In Robert Mueller's indictment, he outlines how "U.S. persons" were in contact with Guccifer 2.0.

newsweek.com/roger-stone-mu…
🔍Not only was Guccifer in contact with a U.S. person, but a U.S. person who was in regular contact with the senior members of the Trump campaign.

▶️Guccifer 2.0, August 15, 2016: “thank u for writing back . . . do u find anyt[h]ing interesting in the docs i posted?”
🔍Guccifer 2.0, August 17, 2016, the Conspirators added, “please tell me if i can help u anyhow . . . it would be a great pleasure to me.”
🔍Roger Stone statement to the filing:

“This exchange is entirely public and provides no evidence of collaboration or collusion with Guccifer 2.0 or anyone else in the alleged hacking of the DNC emails...
🔍Roger Stone statement to the filing (cont'd):

...as well as taking place many weeks after the events described in today’s indictment and after Wikileaks had published the DNC material.

🙈🙉🙊
🔍According to two of Stone's associates, he was also in contact with representatives of Wikileaks in 2016. One is former Trump adviser Sam Nunberg and the other anonymous.

washingtonpost.com/politics/roger…
🔍But while Roger Stone was waiting to be indicted by Robert Mueller, it appears he was also involved in another scandal—which involved attacking a well-known #Democrat.
🕵️‍♂️2017: Al Franken🕵️‍♂️

🔍🔮Just as Roger Stone appeared to be prescient about John Podesta and Eliot Spitzer, he was equally clairvoyant about then Senator Al Franken’s charges.
🔍Franken was one of the best if not the best questioner on the Senate Judiciary Committee & doing a lot of damage—especially to Jeff Sessions during his confirmation hearings which started January 10—and ended with his confirmation on February 8, 2017.

businessinsider.com/jeff-sessions-…
🔍Roger Stone's prescient tweet is dated November 16, 2017. Leeann Tweeden goes public with charges that Al Franken groped her while she was sleeping aboard a military plane on her way home from a USO tour in 2006 on the same date. There's a photo.

abcnews.go.com/US/sen-al-fran…
🔍It was a photo of then-Senator Al Franken mock-grabbing Leeann Tweeden's breasts (which were under a flak jacket). Nevertheless, Franken apologized but said said the photo was meant to be funny. (see abc post👆)
🔍Tweeden also felt "disgusting & violated" in her claim that Franken forcibly kissed her when they were practicing a performance together for troops overseas. Franken said he did not remember the skit the same way. Tweeden was Franken's most serious accuser.
🔍Tweeden was at Radio 790 KABC-AM in Los Angeles, but was formerly a correspondent for Fox Sports Networks' THE BEST DAMN SPORTS SHOW PERIOD, a show that Tom Arnold hosted. In early December, Arnold said the whole thing was a "setup."
🔍Arnold claimed that Tweeden's KABC colleague/Trump supporter John Phillips & Roger Stone coached Tweeden for weeks to "take Al [Franken] down." Arnold also claimed that Sean Hannity wanted Tweeden to share the photo in 2007, but Tweeden wasn't "comfortable" with it at the time
🔍Arnold did show proof of emails he says Roger Stone sent out to media outlets, using a Russian pseudonym.

▶️Stone denied everything on Infowars.

🔍Arnold claimed Stone spent the night at Phillips’ house after he was kicked off twitter in October 2017. Arnold also claimed that Stone was bragging to Trump, Guccifer 2.0 and Assange and "everyone knows about it, but he's lost a few steps."

nytimes.com/2017/10/29/us/…
🔍Franken was also accused of multiple other incidents (hand-on-butt-photo op), had no corroboration & he didn’t recall.

▶️Nevertheless, he resigned on December 7, 2017 after Kirsten Gillibrand called on him to do so & other Senators followed suit.

nbcnews.com/politics/congr…
🔍Roger Stone's denial re: Tom Arnold's accusations: “I’ve never met the woman; I’ve never spoken to her; I’ve never communicated with her; I’ve never talked to anyone who works for her or with her.” He claims he was only “reporting” this on behalf of Infowars.
🔍Technically a standoff, but credibility goes to Tom Arnold.

🔥''Roger doesn't have to get paid and he doesn't have to do politics,'' a political operative who has worked with Mr. Stone said. ''He has enough money. He is doing this because it's easy and it's sexy.''

🕵️‍♂️Conclusion🕵️‍♂️

🔍Recently, Trump was accused by legal experts—specifically Kellyanne Conway’s husband George Conway—of witness tampering with a recent tweet, praising Stone for showing “guts” when he didn’t sing like a canary about Trump’s alleged crimes.
businessinsider.com/trump-may-be-g…
🔍Roger Stone is expected to be indicted soon and will face prison time—which will not be ameliorated by giving testimony against Trump, HE says.

▶️Stone claims he would have to “make s**t up” to testify against Trump.
🔍The Mueller team, however, has obtained Stone’s texts and tweets and has questioned Stone’s associates about them. Little doubt Stone is the U.S. person who exchanged messages with the hacker Guccifer 2.0 and Julian Assange.
🔍But Stone told CNN: "I have always acknowledged playing hard ball politics but have also said in my books and in the Netflix documentary that my campaign tactics do not include breaking the law.

cnn.com/2018/10/02/pol…
🔍Roger Stone (cont'd):

💬...This would not be the first time the Special Counsel has willfully misled the grand jury."
🔍Roger Stone is very good at "dirty tricks;" he was taught by the master, Roy Cohn.

🔥Unfortunately, he has a weakness; he loves to brag about his exploits.
🔍But perhaps Herb Harman, former regional political director for the Reagan-Bush campaign summed it up best.

"You can parlay your short-term connections into making money, but administrations change.
🔍Herb Harman (cont'd):

...That's where Roger is going to end up short, because he doesn't have any real talent. He doesn't have any character. That's why questions have come up about his ethics and his way of doing business...
🔍Herb Harman (cont'd):

...He has to parlay connections to give himself credibility because he has no credibility on his own."
