Clinton and Obama front man and globalist stooge, George Stephanopoulos, interviewed Roger Stone on Sunday about his possible connections to periphery elements of the Russia hoax and his potential testimony before the House Intelligence Committee.
Stephanopoulos asked, “I know you volunteered to appear and answer the questions of the House Intelligence Committee, have they accepted your offer and have you asked for or received any type of immunity in exchange for testifying?” Stone responded, “They have only confirmed that they’ve received our offer to testify voluntarily and I have requested that be in a public session, because the three things that the ‘gentleman’ from California, who is largely full of Schiff, said are incorrect. I never made any reference to John Podesta’s email.”
Stephanopoulos quotes the tweet, “‘Trust me, it will soon be Podesta’s time in the barrel’ and two months later the emails came out.” Stone asks if it says #WikiLeaks, #Assange? He said ‘Stone predicted his emails would be hacked.’ No I didn’t, I never said anything of the kind.”
The next question Stephanopoulos has for Stone begins with the presumptive statement that there is an active FBI investigation of him and asking if he’s received any requests for an interview or information. Stone corrects the host, saying, “I have not, what I think you refer to is the surveillance that I’m under, that was referred to on page one of the New York Times on January 20th. This is on the basis of no probable cause and no evidence whatsoever. The communication that he refers to with Assange is through a mutual friend, an intermediary, as it were. I didn’t admit this, I announced it. Secondarily, as I have said, the reference to Podesta is general, is not specific, and by the way, he does have his time in the barrel shortly thereafter.”
“You’ve also admitted communications with this Guccifer 2,” seemingly having an endless supply of weak, subjective accusations. What exactly did you discuss and did you ever use encrypted apps like Signal or Telegram to communicate with Guccifer? Stone answers the question and points out that the entirety of his exchange with Guccifer 2 is posted online for anyone choosing to do so to look at.
Stephanopoulos goes fishing on the other side of the boat, asking Stone if he’s confident that Paul Manafort didn’t do anything wrong either. Stone says he chooses to take the word of his friend of fifty years who vehemently denies any wrongdoing. Stone completes his point from earlier, that his exchange with Guccifer 2.0 came six weeks after the alleged hacking and publication of the DNC documents. He says, “I would need a time machine in order to collude.”
Framing the question in familiar anti-Trump fashion, Stephanopoulos claims that Chairman Nunes has depicted President Trump as being under a “big cloud, the Russian investigation,” asking, “How does President Trump get out from under it?”
Stone replies, “Well, let’s have this testimony, George. In other words, you have a bunch of Congressman here who I believe defamed me. I saw demagoguery, fear mongering, red-baiting, and half truths, in many cases just flat-out lies. In America we’re supposed to have a chance to see the evidence against us and face our accusers. I’m very anxious to do that. If Mr. Page and Mr. Manafort do the same thing, frankly, I think the whole Russian meme, which really starts as a Clinton campaign press release, is finally put to bed. There is no collusion, at least none that I know about, in Donald Trump’s campaign for President with the Russians.”
