"The Latest: Video shows pre-dawn FBI raid at Stone’s house"
"A video of the pre-dawn FBI raid at Roger Stone’s house in Florida shows agents in combat gear using night-vision equipment and running up to Stone’s home and banging repeatedly on the door. On the video, aired on CNN, one agent shouts “FBI open the door! FBI, warrant!
The arrest scene included about a half-dozen police vehicles, a dozen officers and agents in tactical vests and large weapons. Stone appeared in his doorway in sleepwear, with his glasses on. An agent asked him, “are you Roger Stone?” and he said “yes.” Stone was then led away."

Mueller’s team will issue a statement denying this story and then we can rest assured that Trump has been acquitted of any and all wrongdoing.

The indictment claims Stone was in contact with a “high-ranking Trump Campaign official” who sent a text message to Stone that read “well done” after the first batch of stolen emails was released by WikiLeaks on October 7, 2016.


I like. Text messages. Another witch caught.

Trump will deny that he had any high ranking campaign officials, so this could not be true.

I don't get it. What was it about?

Did the Russians need Roger Stone to help hack Hillary's emails and give them to Assange? What did Roger Stone do well?

Reply
jorgedeclaro (Jan 25, 2019 - 12:39 pm)

Nope. Stone just lied about his communications with his contacts who contacted Wikileaks in his testimony to Congress.

Really doesn’t add anything to the story (we already knew this). But you know what? Couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy. Hope he enjoys his 15-21 months in priosn and maybe the judge tosses him an exceptional sentence upward for being a dick.

Everyone was an intern that did nothing but fetched coffee and booked meeting rooms. Trump ran the campaign by himself with a little help from Kellyanne Conway

Sounds like Stone likes sending the text messages and emails.

https://twitter.com/rgoodlaw/status/1088780870360678401?

Just how stupid is Roger Stone:

"September 26, 2017—the day that Stone testified before HPSCI and denied having ever sent or received emails or text messages from [Credico]—Stone and [Credico] exchanged over THIRTY text messages"

And Donald J. Trump is depending upon him.

Reply
jorgedeclaro (Jan 25, 2019 - 12:04 pm)

That’s the crux of the indictment. Stone testified he had no written communications with Credico about serving as the intermediary contacting WikiLeaks. He then pressured Credico to stick with his story. The other alleged falsehoods are defensible, but those two make the case.

I said it before and I'll say it again, the President of the United States can't be indicted -- so Mueller's strategy is simple, take down EVERY sucker in Trump's orbit during Trump's election campaign and into his presidency that either broke the law or lied to Mueller till you get to the eye of the vortex and there's one man left standing there twittering away that it's a witch hunt and / or he didn't know anything about anything -- then let the people decide, one of these days wearing that MAGA hat is going to symbolize being all in with the greatest con job ever perpetrated on the American people, starting with enlisting the aid of a foreign adversary to swing an election -- welcome to Trump's Make America Great Again Sh!t Show

Any documents, records, electronically stored information including e-mail, communication, recordings, data and tangible things (including, but not limited to, graphs, charts, photographs, images and other documents) regardless of form, other than those widely available (e.g., newspaper articles) that reasonably could lead to the discovery of any facts within the investigation’s publicly- announced parameters.

That’s a hell of a document request.

Why are all of trump's people getting convicted of crimes?

This has to be some kind of conspiracy.

I mean...we all know instituational racism is fake, but deep state? Yeah that's real

Stone has been breaking the law for 45 years, it's hilarious that he's finally facing consequences. I'm just happy that he's still young enough that he'd likely be around for the entirety of a 20-year prison term.

He has to be tried and convicted before he needs to worry about sentencing.

It looks like the indictment spells out that there was no conspiracy between Trump and the Russians or Wikileaks. It demonstrates that Stone was their source about Wikileaks and he was clueless, just pretending to know what Wikileaks had on Hillary.

He seems to be playing for public legal fee contributions for his defense and an eventual Trump pardon in the event of conviction. Both matter more than any potential increase in sentencing. I saw he posted this picture on Instagram mocking Mueller which gets him points with both.

So Roger Stone's case was designated as complex today, by agreement of the parties. That doesn't make any sense unless there is more than what we see on the surface of the indictment. There's probably a superseding indictment coming. Or something else, like Stone cooperating.


"Before Tuesday's proceedings ended, Michael Marando with the U.S. Attorney's Office in D.C. told Robinson the parties have come to the agreement to designate Stone's case as "complex."

The designation means that the case will not be subject to speedy trial deadlines and is an acknowledgement by both sides that it will take longer to go to trial.

"It basically takes the case out from underneath a lot of deadlines that would otherwise be imposed," said Glenn Kirschner, a former federal prosecutor in D.C."

The Roger Stone case includes bank records and terabytes of data. I like the sound of that.


https://twitter.com/NatashaBertrand/status/1091017929808924672?

JUST IN: According to Mueller and DC USA, discovery in the Roger Stone case is "both voluminous and complex," and "is composed of multiple hard drives containing several terabytes of information"—including bank records & comms taken from iCloud/email accounts, electronic devices. https://t.co/JkIJFoZHau
