Good Luck Distancing Yourself from Roger Stone Now, Donny Trash
There are a lot of moving parts in the investigation of the Trump campaign’s collusion with Russia during the 2016 election. While Devin Nunes is taking much of the focus at the moment, weeks past have seen Carter Page, Jeff Sessions, Paul Manafort, and Michael Flynn take heat for their roles in potential collusion.
One guy who doesn’t get nearly enough attention is Roger Stone, a man who admits he had contact with both Wikileaks and the Russian hacker who provided Wikileaks with the information. It was Stone, after all, who warned liberals on Twitter of the incoming email dumps. His fingerprints are all over this scandal and and the media often treats him like a kooky, eccentric sideline figure in the campaign. The White House, moreover, has attempted to distance itself from Roger Stone: Maybe Roger Stone did something, but not at the behest of Donald Trump, right?
Good luck proving that after watching Get Me Roger Stone, the Netflix documentary due out in May. The trailer suggests that the documentary will follow Stone’s up-and-down career beginning during the Nixon era and going through his sex party years and ending last year, when he hitched his wagon to Donald Trump and — based on what the trailer suggests — was instrumental in getting him elected.
That may have involved more than just Roger Stone’s run-of-the-mill sleazy tactics. It may have involved treason.
