The Coming Crucifixion of Roger Stone

By Robert Wenzel

It appears that Roger Stone may be in serious trouble. The special prosecutor, Robert Mueller, appears to be after him.

Roger seems to be aware. Sunday on "Meet The Press" he said:
It is not inconceivable now that Mr. Mueller and his team may seek to conjure up some extraneous crime pertaining to my business, or maybe not even pertaining to the 2016 election. I would chalk this up to an effort to silence me.
It needs to be understood that  Mueller is a political animal and the elite establishment political class have likely given him the go-ahead to go after Roger. If not having demanded it!

You see, Roger is one tough hombre and he has taken out many of the powerful in the political establishment. He was instrumental in finding dirt on
Walter Mondale's vice-presidential running mate, Geraldine Ferraro, during Mondale's failed 1984 presidential bid. He was instrumental in taking down New York Governor Eliot Spitzer. And for good measure, after the death of Barbara Bush, he called her a "mean-spirited vindictive drunk."

Then there are Roger's books:

The Bush Crime Family: The Inside Story of an American Dynasty

The Man Who Killed Kennedy: The Case Against LBJ

The Clintons' War on Women

Do you see why the establishment is giving Mueller the green light to go after Roger?

And Mueller is digging. Six Stone associates of one sort or another have reportedly been questioned by Mueller, including, John Kakanis, who has worked as an assistant to Stone in several capacities and Jason Sullivan, a lawyer and social media expert who has worked for Stone.

This means Mueller either hasn't found anything to charge Roger with, yet, and is still looking, or Mueller wants to nail Roger down so completely that he is going to nail him to a cross with more nails than were used on Jesus Christ.

Now, I believe Roger is smart and is careful and unlikely to knowingly cross legal lines. But when you have the full weight of a special prosecutor digging through your entire life, who knows what they can find and twist into an indictment.

If they nail Roger, he is going to have to make some tough decisions.

Does he hang tough and fight it out with a jury trial and hope he can prove his innocence, or hope beyond hope that at least one juror can be convinced of his innocence or believes in jury nullification and stands tough against a guilty vote?

Does he hang tough and hope for a Trump pardon? And remember, Roger and Trump were mentored by the tough as a rock fixer Roy Cohn. Cohn was responsible for Trump getting his start in Manhattan by getting Trump the permits and tax deal for the property where he built his first Manhattan building, the Grand Hyatt. He also got Trump a 40-year, $400 million! tax abatement for the Penn Central land he bought on the west side of Manhattan. And Cohn was also responsible for getting Trump's sister,  Maryanne Trump Barry, her judgeship.

In other words, Trump should have been ever grateful to Cohn. But when Cohn was diagnosed with AIDS, Trump cut his ties with Cohn. The dying Cohn said, "Trump pisses ice water."

Roger knows this.

And it appears the establishment may be working to put a wedge between Roger and Trump. New York magazine has a cover story out on Cohn. The story includes a sidebar with snippets from the personal notebook of Christine Seymour, a switchboard operator in the office of Cohn from the late 1960s until his death in 1986.

The magazine published this excerpt from the Seymour notebook:
[Roger Stone] worked with Roy heavily before and after elections...Roger did not like Trump or Si Newhouse--told me they were losers--but if Roy used them, he would, too.
Wonderful. The mag reached out to Roger and got this quote:
I never said Trump was a loser. Why would I say that? 
So Roger really would have to calculate, Does he have enough on Trump that Trump would fear not giving him a pardon? Roger was something akin to Trump's consigliere at different times so Roger would know a lot.

Or does he flip? But given the elite establishment hate for Roger, it would have to be much more than an ordinary flip.

It would have to be a series of street style multi-flips.

I hope this all works out for Roger. I have always thought of him as a destroyer of politicians.

If this were a Shakespeare play, Roger entering on stage would always mean a plot revealed to take down an evil politician.  And that is always a good thing. But right now Roger is off stage, just to the side and no one knows how the final act will play out.


  1. I tuned in to the live Infowars show on Sunday. Alex Jones was on fire, more so than usual. He was hinting he and Roger Stone had some good dirt on Mueller. Something about two dudes connected to 9-11 and how Mueller had them offed. I can't remember the names of the dudes. Stay tuned, it could get real interesting!

  2. Here's the Alex Jones message to Mueller at the 32' mark:

  3. Roger Stone will never cooperate with these assholes, pardon or not.
