A review of dirty trickster and Trump supporter Roger Stone’s public statements show a man clamoring for attention.
CNN has provided a detailed accounting of Roger Stone’s public statements. Roger Stone, Paul Manafort and Carter Page have offered to testify in front of the House Intelligence Committee. Without their testimony provided under oath, one questions the veracity and value of their testimony. Jared Kushner has offered to testify under oath in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee, and there is no word yet on whether that event will be public.
Roger Stone worked in the Nixon administration, and we all know how Mr. Nixon’s presidential career ended. Several of Nixon’s administration ended up serving time in prison, while Roger Stone continued to work in Washington, went on to political consulting, and formed Black, Manafort & Stone.
CNN reports in the final months of the 2016 campaign, longtime Donald Trump associate Roger Stone repeatedly discussed his backchannel communications with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and claimed knowledge of forthcoming leaks from the group, a CNN KFile review of his public statements shows.

“In fact I know [Assange] has them,” Stone said. “And I believe he will expose the American people to this information in the next 90 days.”
