  • STONE: Now That I’m Ungagged, I’d Like To Say A Few Things About My Prosecution

    Daily Caller ^ | May 5, 2020 | Roger Stone
    With Attorney General William Barr now firmly in charge at the Justice Department, the steady unraveling of the coup plot against President Donald J. Trump by the Obama-Clinton junta raises the real possibility that a number of its culprits will face prosecution. The pushback from Democrats and their allies is the false claim that Attorney General Barr “interfered” in the sentencing recommendations of the “non-political career line prosecutors” in my case as well as recommending the dismissal of the thoroughly corrupted case against Gen. Michael Flynn. Now that I am ungagged, I can outline why this charge against the Attorney...

    Federal prosecutors are examining emails between Dr. Vladimir “Zev” Zelenko — a Hasidic doctor touting the controversial drug hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for Covid-19 — and a right-wing political commentator, the Washington Post reported. Zelenko is currently collaborating with Jerome Corsi, a commentator best known for propagating the falsehood that President Barack Obama was born outside the U.S., on a website that connects people with doctors. Zelenko is listed as a “medical adviser” on the site. Zelenko has become a frequent presence on conservative media, from Fox News to Donald Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani’s podcast (the two speak almost daily,...

  • Tucker Carlson: Assange's real sin was preventing Hillary Clinton from becoming president

    * * * SNIP * * * If you're upset about the theft of classified documents from the U.S. government -- and there is reason to be -- we already know who did that. A 22- year-old Army private named Bradley Manning, now called Chelsea Manning. In 2013, Manning pleaded guilty to stealing secret material and got 35 years in prison for it. Shortly after that, President Obama commuted Manning's sentence. This allowed Manning to leave jail decades early, go back on television as a commentator, and then run for political office. So if your real concern is America's national...

    The documents, which were FBI affidavits, were released following a lawsuit brought by several media outlets FBI documents made public Tuesday, show that Roger Stone, shortly after the Mueller Russia collusion investigation began, communicated to Julian Assange, telling the Wikileaks founder that he would step in if prosecutors came after Assange. “I will bring down the entire house of cards,” wrote Stone to Assange in a private Twitter message. “As a journalist it doesn’t matter where you get information only that it is accurate and authentic,” Stone told Assange in a message from the summer of 2017. “Between CIA and...

    Weeks after Robert Mueller was appointed special counsel in the Russia investigation, Roger Stone, a confidant of President Donald Trump, reassured WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in a Twitter message that if prosecutors came after him, “I will bring down the entire house of cards,” according to FBI documents made public Tuesday. The records reveal the extent of communications between Stone and Assange, whose anti-secrecy website published Democratic emails hacked by Russians during the 2016 presidential election, and underscore efforts by Trump allies to gain insight about the release of information they expected would embarrass Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton. The documents...

    Longtime Trump ally Roger Stone gave an explosive interview to the Sara Carter Show Monday, revealing that Special Counsel Prosecutor Jeannie Rhee had tried to pressure him on the contents of 29 phone conversations he shared with his good friend President Donald Trump during Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. He told this reporter that he refused to lie to the FBI and Special Counsel prosecutors against his friend and in the end that’s why the prosecutors brought erroneous charges against him that had nothing to do with their now-debunked Russia probe. Stone, who is supposed to begin his 3-year jail...

    A Florida hurricane may be about to hit Washington, DC. Laura Loomer, a 26-year-old conservative provocateur running for Congress in the Sunshine State, is gaining strength with activists and donors buzzing about the possibility she is the conservative answer to New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. “She’s the Republican’s AOC,” longtime GOP strategist Roger Stone gushed to The Post. “She’s young. She’s energetic. She’s feisty. She’s anti-establishment, and she has an enormous national following, as does AOC, which can help finance a congressional race.” Like the Queens/Bronx congresswoman, few took Loomer seriously when she declared her candidacy in the heavily-blue 21st...

    Roger Stone on Friday night said he believes he will die in jail unless he’s pardoned by President Donald Trump. Stone, a longtime friend and former adviser to Trump, was sentenced on Feb. 20 to three years and four months in prison. Stone was convicted on charges including lying to a congressional committee that was investigating Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election. Stone in recent weeks moved for a new trial, pointing out anti-Trump social media posts made by the jury forewoman, and tried getting the presiding judge to recuse herself after she praised the “integrity” of the jurors....

    Roger Stone will be interviewed by Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Friday night after a 16-month gag order on the longtime Republican operative was lifted this week, Stone announced in an Instagram post. The appearance on Carlson's prime-time program comes after a federal judge rejected Stone's motion for a new trial on Thursday. Stone, 67, had been sentenced to more than three years in prison in February for lying to Congress and witness tampering. U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson, who was appointed by then-President Obama, ruled against the argument by Stone's legal team that one juror was biased...

    The federal judge overseeing the trial of longtime Trump associate Roger Stone on Thursday denied his motion for a new trial that was based on a claim of juror bias. Federal District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson said Stone's lawyers failed to demonstrate that a woman selected as a juror was biased against President Donald Trump, failed to disclose those views during jury selection and should not have been allowed to serve. "The defendant has not shown that the juror lied; nor has he shown that the supposedly disqualifying evidence could not have been found through the exercise of due...

    Roger Stone is awaiting a 40-month prison sentence while Andrew McCabe enjoys life as a high-profile CNN commentator, creating outrage among conservatives who see a political double standard when it comes to prosecutions of false statements. Both men lied to federal investigators or Congress, a federal offense that can be prosecuted and result in prison time. Their disparate treatment gives rise to concerns that Washington has a two-track justice system that prosecutes President Trump’s allies and allows his liberal opponents to go free. “The declination of prosecution with McCabe seemed to be a tipping point where the perception of a...

    There’s been a lot going on—I know. But something might be going on with the Federal Judges Association and this aborted meeting about the president over the Roger Stone case. Attorney General William Barr noted that Trump’s tweets make his job more difficult. Then, there was an overreach by the media who suggested Barr could resign. He’s not going anywhere—and notice how that story died within36 hours. It was crap. Do we have another instance of the media getting it wrong with this FJA meeting that reportedly centered on rebuking Trump? The case that supposedly caused the organization to...

    Recently, President Trump tweeted that he felt Roger Stone’s nine-year sentencing recommendation by his own justice department was too harsh. He also pardoned former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich. Liberal Democrats immediately joined forces with media voices to react as though the president had just upchucked on America’s apple pie, completely ignoring the true “elephant in the room,” i.e., very real corruption that does exist in some of our nation’s courtrooms. As to Stone, the president was no doubt concerned that a liberal judge—Amy Berman Jackson, an Obama appointee—might be politically motivated to use the justice department’s harsh sentencing recommendation in...

    The judge in Roger Stone's case is under pressure as she considers whether to grant President Trump's longtime associate a new trial based on allegations of juror bias. U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson, an Obama appointee whose ruling is expected soon, is facing a concerted campaign from Trump and his media allies who claim that Stone’s case was prejudiced by politics. This new chapter in Stone’s legal saga concerns whether the jury forewoman’s failure to disclose her opposition to Trump tainted Stone’s guilty verdict. Stone's lawyers say that entitles the 67-year-old right-wing provocateur to a fresh trial. Jackson held...

    "Roger Stone Did Nothing Wrong!" proclaimed the T-shirts worn by his supporters. Federal prosecutors, by contrast, argued that Stone deserved at least seven years in prison. U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson split the difference last week, sentencing the longtime Donald Trump crony to three years and four months in prison -- a penalty that still seems excessive given the nature and consequences of his crimes. In addition to the perils of presidential pronouncements about ongoing criminal cases, the case highlights the dubious wisdom and fairness of federal sentencing guidelines. When Attorney General William Barr overrode the original sentencing recommendation...
