Roger Stone is in Deep Shit. A Thread.
Stone filed a brief today seeking to suppress evidence against him. His theory (like usual - "all that evidence against me didn't amount to probable cause for the warrant that obtained all the evidence I had of my own crimes").
Stone search warrants also ID'd the following non charged crimes: "accessory after the fact, misprision of a felony, conspiracy, false statements, unauthorized use of a protected computer, obstruction of justice, witness tampering, wire fraud, AND FOREIGN CONTRIBUTIONS BAN."
The rest of the brief whines about how the DOJ didn't use it's FBI investigation evidence for the non-charged crimes, it used the DNC's private contractor's evidence. THIS IS IMPORTANT.
It means that even at this late stage, the DOJ isn't telling Stone ANYTHING about what the FBI/DOJ found in their own investigation. They are charging him with unrelated felonies AND KEEPING THEIR INVESTIGATION SECRET.
Why would the DOJ keep their own investigation of Stone's conduct secret? Because there are a shit ton of related indictments. And because he committed such obvious obstruction of justice they don't even have to. Cuz he sux.
BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE. "unauthorized use of a protected computer" - that's hacking. That's what Julian Assange was just indicted for. So the FBI thinks Stone was in on it - but won't tell him how they know.
Misprision of a felony - that's failing to report when you know a felony occurred. WHO'S WAS THAT, ROG? "conceals and does not as soon as possible make known the same to some judge or other person in civil or military authority under the US, shall be fined...or imprisoned"
Bottom Line: Stone is so caught that they aren't even charging him with the important stuff, because they are protecting the ONGOING INVESTIGATIONS into others that participated.
You know who else is in the same boat? Butina's lil buddy Erickson. Charged with regular fraud. While they get ready to string him up for treason. npr.org/2019/02/06/687…
