Roger Stone Indicted- “Time in a Barrel”

Coffee and Friday morning indictments from Special Counsel Robert Mueller go together like peanut butter and jelly.

It was just yesterday that I was thinking about writing a post on Roger Stone and his ongoing public feud with Jerome Corsi, but I’ll skip that since I find this more interesting and so will you.

From day one I promised a Stone indictment. I actually expected it in December, so I was off by a month, but as I keep saying- Stone is the bridge to the Russia connection of election meddling and the email hack of Hillary Clinton thanks to WikiLeaks and Julian Assange.

Remember that at a campaign rally, President Trump said he loved WikiLeaks and if they had Clinton’s emails to release them, which they did, twenty-four hours later. What a coincidence.

This morning, Special Counsel Mueller said “get me Roger Stone” as he was picked up at his home in Fort Lauderdale at 6 a.m. He is due for an arraignment at 11 a.m.

The seven-count indictment against Stone provides additional details on the email hack of Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Stone is not tied directly to the hack from WikiLeaks but has been charged with witness tampering, obstruction and perjury for lying to Congress about his knowledge of the email hack.

How much closer does this put Mueller to President Trump? Much more.

An unnamed Senior Campaign Trump Official had communicated with Stone about the email dump by WikiLeaks and also asked “what other damaging information” WikiLeaks had. It should be noted that there was never anything in the emails, but Trump’s campaign just alluded that there was.

“After the July 22, 2016, release of stolen (Democratic National Committee) emails by Organization 1, a senior Trump Campaign official was directed to contact STONE about any additional releases and what other damaging information Organization 1 had regarding the Clinton Campaign. STONE thereafter told the Trump Campaign about potential future releases of damaging material by Organization 1,” prosecutors wrote.

After the emails were released, the top Trump campaign official sent Stone a text message that said “well done.”

The high-ranking Trump campaign official is believed to be Steve Bannon based on prior reporting by the New York Times where they had published emails with similar wording.

Looks like it is Stone’s “time in a barrel,” maybe even Bannon’s.
