Desperate Trump Begs Everyone To Focus On Hillary Clinton, Not On Him And His Pals

President Donald Trump over the weekend railed against the indictment of his friend and advisor Roger Stone while insisting that he did not work with his long-time confidant, “anywhere near the Election” and complaining that the focus should instead be on Hillary Clinton.

In a series of tweets, Trump cited allegations in Stone’s indictment that data was released during the 2016 campaign to damage then-Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

The president pointed to the so-called “Steele Dossier,” which he dubbed a “total phony conjob.”

The dossier contained several salacious allegations, some of which are not yet verified, about Trump’s relationship to Russia. The dossier was published by BuzzFeed in January 2017, after the election.

The president also argued via Twitter he was subjected to “one sided Fake Media coverage (collusion with Crooked H?),” and “bias by Facebook and many others.”

Trump desperately tried to distance himself from Stone in the wake of his arrest on Friday morning.

Prosecutors for special counsel Robert Mueller allege Stone lied to Congress about his interactions regarding WikiLeaks, the organization that released hacked emails from high-level Democrats that U.S. intelligence officials later tied to a broader plot by the Russian government to interfere in the 2016 election.

Stone is also accused of obstructing a congressional investigation into Russian interference.

Stone, an informal adviser on Trump’s 2016 campaign, has professed his innocence and maintained he will not testify against the president.

With Stone’s arrest, six former Trump associates have been implicated in Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Of course, Twitter users had to set him straight.
