Roger Stone Says 'Deepfakes' Responsible for Recent Headlines

Roger Stone is no stranger to bad news.  The man is one of the most effective political provocateurs of all time, so dedicated to the game itself that he has a massive tattoo of Richard Nixon’s face on his back.

And so this week, as a number of purported recording emerged of him saying some rather dastardly things, Stone took to the airwaves to clear his name.

Roger Stone insists that video clips obtained by CNN that show him calling for violence ahead of the 20220 election are actually “deep fakes.” “CNN airs fraudulent deep fake videos and expects anyone to believe them based on their long history of lies,” Stone wrote on Telegram Monday night.

“Let CNN or anyone else produce any proof that I knew in advance about, participated in or condoned any illegal act on January 6 or any other day.”

The images were sensational, to say the least.

Footage captured by filmmakers Christoffer Guldbrandsen and Frederik Marbell earlier showed him declaring a day before voting, “F*** the voting, let’s get right to the violence,” and “Shoot to kill. See an antifa? Shoot to kill. F*** ’em. Done with this bulls***.”

Stone didn’t return The Daily Beast’s request for comment on Tuesday morning.

Roger Stone has been in the crosshairs of the January 6th select committee for some time, and there is little doubt that these latest clips will become part of their narrative.
