Roger Stone – Lieberman A Trump Death Warrant – Why All The Opposition, Enemy Appointments?

roger stone newsmax


Longtime friend and adviser to Donald Trump and political authority, Roger Stone, joined Newsmax’s Steve Malzberg for a discussion of the situation with the Trump presidency, particularly the search for a new FBI Director. Malzberg points to the prospect of a nomination of Joe Lieberman, which says caught him, as it did everyone else, by surprise.

Noting that the media has been telling us that Cornyn was the top pick, asking how Trump went from Cornyn to Lieberman. Cornyn, according to Malzberg, predicted that Lieberman would get 100 votes in the Senate, but his fortunes have turned and there is no Democrat support, for reasons that should be more than enough for every Republican other than fellow neocons McCain and Graham to vote against him, he supported John McCain for president in 2008.

Roger Stone says, “If the President appoints John McCain’s best friend Joe Lieberman FBI Director, he’s lost leave of his senses.” He explains, “Now Joe Lieberman is a friend of mine, I like him. He’s a neocon and he is not right for this job. We need someone who’s not part of the Washington establishment. We need someone the President knows and knows well. That’s why I believe former New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly would be the best man for this job.”

Stone continues, saying, “If the President appoints Lieberman he will be signing his own death warrant.  The deep state, the intelligence agencies, the, some segments of the FBI, not the rank and file agents, who are, by the way, who are ebullient over the firing of Comey. You keep reading in the New York Times that morale at the FBI is low. No, on the contrary, I’ve talked to a dozen agents in the last week, the morale at the agency’s never better. They despised Comey, they believe he politicized and compromised the agency.”

“There was no confidence in him at the agent level,” says Stone, “so I’m not sure what they’re talking about. But I do think that Joe Lieberman would be a mistake. I hope the President will not make that mistake. It goes to the larger question, Steve, and that is, ‘Why does the President continue to appoint people to his cabinet, to his White House staff, who opposed his election and did not vote for him, and are not loyal to him now?”

He asks, “You know Stone’s most famous rule? Go to bed with dogs – wake up with fleas.”

    To be honest, there are very few websites that I trust, Rick’s is one of them, and I like to read the comments. However, there is so much fake news out there that it’s difficult to decipher what is valid and what is not. When the swamp is filled with creatures like Schumer and McCain, Ryan and McConnell, you know our President has one huge war on his hands to get anything passed.

    I’m not fond of Jared Kushner either, but we are going to have to let that go. Trump will not oust his daughter and son-in-law because truly he needs people who he loves and who love him. The real problems lie in Pence, Priebus, McMaster, and others. And yes, there are brilliant people who could fill these slots, but whomever is giving our President advice, is one of the swamp creatures.

    I just hope Trump learns fast…

    I understand your feelings, but the sabotage of this presidency is truly unprecedented…it is so out of control it’s a wonder Trump has accomplished anything. The swamp seems to be growing, and as far as I’m concerned, Trump needs to fire every damned one of the previously appointed or hired personnel from other administrations. Do it!

    And Sessions made one helluva big mistake by recusing himself from this whole Russian pile of phony dung.

    Trump has been playing nicey, nicey with everyone and let his guard down since taking office. He should have fired Comey on day one, he would not be in the mess he is in, keep up with his campaign’s promise and restarted the investigation on Hillary Clinton. Now he is talking about LIEBERMAN, a wash-out 75 year old DEMOCRAT with no LAW ENFORCEMENT background, who he is trying to please… He has got to be out of his F—-g mind. He could have bought his loyalists with him to DC Rudy Giuliani and Chris Christie, they are the only one he could trust, beside Jeff Sessions, even so Sessions should never have reclused himself from the Russian investigation. I am really disappointed in Trump, I hope he start wising up for the sake of our country.

    It seems to me that there are MANY educated and loyal Constitution-loving people who could fill the position of FBI Director so why would someone such as LIEBERMAN be the possible choice?? I didn’t vote for a “house cleaning” only to watch one liberal being replaced with another!

    I would expect this type of replacement from Hillary but not from Trump.

    Maybe Trump is being told by his liberal son-in-law, Jared Kushner, that the Trump Movement is dead. After all, just the other day conservative Mike Cernovich claims he received “inside info” regarding a dead Trump Movement from someone “high up” in D.C.

    They seem to have already forgotten: just because a lion isn’t moving doesn’t mean he’s dead. It means he’s watching…and waiting.

    Lock and load. It’s coming.

    Okay, let me see if I can phrase this in a way that this website will accept my comment. Several times I’ve tried to ask why Rudy Giuliani isn’t in the running for head of FBI, and the pops up that I’m spam. It’s odd because the above comment I made about Corker and Romney was taken easily. Something is odd with the site itself, nothing to do with Rick, but a glitch somewhere. Anyway, I would love to see Rudy!

    Remember people … the President fooled a lot of folks when he interviewed TN Senator Bob Corker, a hardcore neo-con Trotskyite for Sec. of State…and he also interviewed Willard Mitt Romney who hated Trump and actively campaigned against him…he chose neither.

      myworld2…I’m feeling the same frustrations that you’re feeling! True, neither one of us is privy to those things being told to Trump. Nor are we privy to Trump’s own thoughts. However, since actions speak louder than words, I’d expect to see SOMETHING going on up there to give me hope that the swamp IS being drained and not just being stirred around.

      Don’t get me wrong: I’m still very much a strong Trump supporter. But following blindly just isn’t in my DNA.

  7. Where is the President going with this ???? Are we supposed to start to doubt him ?????Doesn’t the Pres know these people are serious about kicking him out of his position that we worked so hard to help him get ??? He gave up a lot for that position ….but – First he kicks out Bannon …then he puts Kushner (a stark liberal) at his right hand …and the hesitancy to ‘cleaning out the swamp? and where is the case against Hillary ? and – WELL, from where I’m am sitting , I have nothing but sympathy for him – however ..??? he must start kicking a____ and maybe step back and take a strong look at that pit of vipers again …they mean business — being President is a very lonely spot – maybe he should go talk to his three sons…………………..

    That’s what I said about Lieberman – only I said it would be a nail in President Trump’s coffin!!! What is wrong with him. He keeps giving in to the Dems and they are loving it. They are really salivating with him saying that Lieberman is at the top of his list!!! Someone needs to get to him before he makes this big mistake. If he can’t appoint a Republican then he needs to just quit. Why is he turning toward Democrats to fill positions.
