Longtime Trump adviser Roger Stone indicted

Longtime Trump adviser Roger Stone was arrested on January 25 at his home in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, in connection with special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia. It’s one of the biggest moves by Mueller’s office in months.

Stone was charged with 7 counts, including obstruction of official proceedings, making false statements, and witness tampering. The political operative, whose reputation as a dirty political trickster dates back decades, hinted in the past that Mueller was targeting him; several people had been subjected to detailed questioning about Stone.

He is key to the probe because of his alleged communications during the 2016 campaign with WikiLeaks and messages he exchanged with “Guccifer 2.0,” the online persona that authorities have linked to Russian officers who sought to hack Democratic emails. (The charges, though, don’t directly relate to Stone’s actions during the campaign.) The text of his indictment also mentions that “a senior Trump campaign official was directed to contact Stone” about damaging information WikiLeaks might have had on Hillary Clinton.

Stone was especially close with Paul Manafort, Trump’s former campaign chairman who was found guilty of tax and bank fraud and witness-tampering in Mueller’s investigation last year. Stone and Manafort co-founded a political lobbying firm in the 1980’s. Their firm lobbied on behalf of Trump’s casino business in the 90’s.

Well-known for his political antics and hard ball tactics, Stone has reveled in being a Washington wheeler-dealer dating back to the Nixon administration. He campaigned for Nixon’s reelection in 1972 and still holds the former president in high regard – he has a tattoo of Nixon on his back and a room full of Nixon posters in his Florida home. He also worked for Ronald Reagan’s campaign.

Stone lives in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. CNN aired video on Friday of the FBI's raid of his home, showing agents in body armor using large weapons and night-vision equipment, running up to the home and banging repeatedly on the door.

    Quoting  :

Newsweek - Donald Trump Jr. will be indicted and used by special counsel Robert Mueller to ensnare his father President Donald Trump, a former prosecutor predicted.

Stormy Daniels (an adult movie star) is a small fry. Donald Trump wanted to pay her off to shut her mouth. The extramarital affair is not important to Trump, the matter is how the money from Trump pocket or from campaign donation in 2016. Even from donation, it is not so important to impeach him.

Robert Mueller needs to work harder to prove there is conspiracy, collusion and treason. It is difficult to prove those crimes. Trump has large fan base. They are forgiving him.

I was stay in hotel alone in Italy from Oct 15 to Nov 5, but then there was a Caucasian woman moved in with me from Nov 5 to Nov 19. I couldn't get along with her because she is a fan of Trump. She said "Obama is not a good president. Hillary Clinton should be locked in jail, period. Trump is a good president, he will lead America great again". I said quietly "I'm a Democrat". She shut-up. She lives in Sacramento (Norther Calif.), I live in Southern Calif. We live in the same state but had great different opinions. She retired from pharmacy tech, I retired from pharmacist job. From that first night conversation, I seldom talked to her even we shared the same hotel room for 13 nights. On the 14th night, she moved to stay with her friend who lives in Sacramento too. She snored, coughed and opened windows even it was raining at nights, It was a nightmare for a roommate in Sicily, Italy for 14 days. I realized political differences separated in two groups. Trump divided the country.

    Quoting  :

From photo 2 we know Roger Stone is a big fan of the former president Nixon and we know Nixon's fate at the end - he resigned before been impeached.

Let me put two and two together from Roger Stone admires Nixon and Trump, so now you can predict what Trump's ending - Resign before been impeached.

Whomever Roger Stone admires will have same fate. You understand??

We shall see........

White House says Stone indictment has nothing to do with Trump. White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said on Friday "The charges brought against Mr. Stone have nothing to do with the president, has nothing to do with White House," Sarah Sanders said in an interview with CNN. "The president did nothing wrong."

Photo 2: Roger Stone at his office in Florida in 2014. (He’s really into Nixon.) However, this picture is nothing to do with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia. This picture just shows he is a big fan of Nixon.

I watched CNN exclusive video about heavy armed FBI agents storm Roger Stone's home in CNN video of his arrest today's morning about 5 a.m. at his Fort Lauderdale, Florida residence. FBI agents was pounding his door and shouted "open the door, FBI ...." Roger Stone then opened the door and he has been arrested after Grand Jury Indictment that includes 1 count of obstruction, 5 counts of false statement, and 1 count of witness tampering.
