Roger Stone has worked as a political consultant and campaign strategist for a number years.
Stone worked on or in some way helping, the Nixon, Reagan and Bush campaigns.
More recently, he was a strategist for the Trump campaign in 2016.
Stone has often been described as an aggressive consultant and strategist.
He would rather attack political opponents rather than try to defend against them.
Stone has also been accused on numerous occasions of spreading false information, which could be what led to his recent indictment by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
The indictment includes charges of obstruction of an official proceeding, tampering with witness(es) and making false statements.
The Epoch Times – Special Counsel Indicts Roger Stone – Special counsel Robert Mueller indicted Roger Stone on Jan. 25, accusing the political consultant of making false statements, obstructing an official proceeding, and witness tampering.
Stone served briefly as an adviser to the Trump campaign in 2015 before being fired by then-candidate Donald Trump in August that year. Stone, who asserted that he resigned from the campaign, continued supporting Trump throughout 2016.
The special counsel alleges that Stone lied about his interactions with WikiLeaks to the House Intelligence Committee, according to the indictment (pdf). Stone also attempted to persuade a witness to provide false testimony and withhold information from the committee, the prosecutors said.
Mueller was appointed in May 2017 to investigate allegations of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. The indictment against Stone does not allege that Stone or anyone in the Trump campaign colluded with Russia. Mueller has indicted several Trump-campaign associates but has not charged anyone for colluding with Russia…
Robert Mueller has often stated that he is not targeting Donald Trump in his investigation.
Yet, it has been made apparent on numerous occasions that Mueller has been targeting EVERYONE associated with Trump and his campaign.
There have even been allegations made that Mueller has tried to coerce some of those close to Trump in divulging anything he can use against Trump.
Mueller reminds me of a poacher I helped catch who claimed we wasn’t trying to poach deer out of season, when he was caught spreading corn and other feed out in the wild, along with being in possession of deer musk, set of antlers used for rattling in bucks and a high-powered rifle.
That man was convicted of poaching deer and perhaps the same should hold true with Mueller’s hunting of Trump.
