I think It’s safe to say that President Donald Trump long-time friend and advisor Roger Stone know one thing or two about being screwed. Stone, who was recently arrested on seven felony charges that should be enough to send him to prison for the rest of his natural life, could be facing even more legal problems as new developments suggest there are more felony charges coming against him. So it’s notable that Stone now says Donald Trump is also screwed.
While Stone’s brief time in the mainstream media sun has already faded, he is continuing to try to get whatever attention he can by giving interviews to right-wing publications like Breitbart.
He told Breitbart that Donald Trump is screwed, that his presidency “is over” because the Robert Mueller’s Trump’s Russia investigation is a “speeding bullet heading for his head.”
Stone knows precisely what crimes he committed for the Trump campaign, he knows who all was involved, and he knows what Trump’s criminal exposure is in all of it. So we must take Stone’s words seriously.
While Stone is obviously hoping Donald Trump will try to pardon him, the special counsel’s decision to raid his New York City apartment suggests that Stone will also face state-level charges in New York, making it impossible for Trump to pardon him.
Make no mistake, Stone has no way out of this, and for that matter neither does Trump.
