It was just a few days ago that I said expect a circus atmosphere from Roger Stone and he has proven that already, but now, it gets better.
Stone in the most absurd, stupid social media post ever, threatened the judge assigned to his case, U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson.
“Through legal trickery Deep State hitman Robert Mueller has guaranteed that my upcoming show trial is before Judge Amy Berman Jackson, an Obama appointed Judge who dismissed the Benghazi charges again Hillary Clinton and incarcerated Paul Manafort prior to his conviction for any crime,” Stone wrote in an Instagram post.
Stone’s post included crosshairs next to Judge Jackson’s head.
Last week a partial gag order was issued against Stone by Judge Jackson. That order can be seen in the link below.
Here is my question? You don’t think this was done on purpose? Okay, let’s go with one possible theory and that is the enormous amount of stress this case creates caused Stone to “snap” and cave to pressure.
There’s no denying that pressure causes people to do stupid things, but is that what Stone did here?
Stone is in the same position as Paul Manafort. I’ve never seen anyone work harder than Manafort to make sure he not only goes to prison, but also stays there.
If Manafort wants to see the light of the day after Special Counsel Mueller’s office is requesting a 24.5 year jail sentence, then his next step is the witness protection program. The same holds true for Stone.
Think about it. Neither Manafort or Stone are that stupid. Now, I’m not saying they don’t do stupid things, I’m saying they are not stupid, big difference.
Based on Mueller’s latest filings, Stone was in contact with not only Guccifer 2.0 on Twitter which is believed to be a Russian operative, but also Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks which is basically the same thing.
Stone, like Manafort is a threat to anyone that dealt with them during the Trump Presidential campaign. When the Mueller investigation started, you don’t think the Russian powers that be had a conversation asking if these two were a threat to them and their freedom? Of course they did! Wouldn’t you?
Stone is looking for a way to go to prison and be safe, just like Manafort is, and his Instagram post is a ticket straight to jail, do not pass go, do not collect $200.
Once Stone posted his threat to Judge Jackson, he removed it and replaced it with one without the crosshairs. Then he removed that pic as well.
What would possess someone to not only threaten a judge, but to make false accusations? Trust me, I’ve been to thousands of hearings and while there is the occasional threat, Stone took it to another level. You don’t think his attorneys already advised him not to do something stupid like this?
Of course, Stone tried to apologize.
“The photo has been misinterpreted, and in no way did I mean to threaten the judge or disrespect the court.” Stone wrote. “(It) is a random photo selected from the internet and was posted at my direction. Because it was open to misinterpretation, I have ordered it taken down.”
Stone disputed that the original post was crosshairs saying that the organization that posted the photo, “Corruption Central,” uses that as their logo. While that may be true, pretend the crosshairs never existed.
You don’t think that Stone knows going after Mueller would not only result in Mueller ratcheting it up, but also the Judge revoking his bail?
Stone fears for his life. It’s that simple. Just ask Manafort.
