Roger Stone Stares Down Robert Mueller With Risky Legal Action

Linkedin Share

The nagging feeling that the Robert Mueller saga may come to a dramatic end is well-earned…at least according to the last few weeks of tumult.

We learned most recently that Michael Flynn, former White House advisor, will likely receive no jail time after providing “substantial” assistance to the government in their investigation into alleged collusion between the 2016 Trump campaign and the Russian government.

This may be a message to men such as Jerome Corsi, who have begun to defy Mueller, daring him to take them to court.  Corsi, a former Infowars DC Bureau Chief, even went so far as to tell Mueller through the press that he “won’t sign a lie”.

Now, a friend of Corsi and Trump, Roger Stone, is taking a similarly defiant approach to dealing with the Special Counsel.

Roger Stone, the right-wing political trickster and longtime Trump adviser, is pleading the Fifth Amendment in the Senate investigation into Russian election interference — making a legal move his boss used to say only mobsters would orchestrate.

Citing the amendment’s protections against self-incrimination, the 66-year-old GOP strategist announced Tuesday he won’t sit down for an interview or provide documents to members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, who are exploring his possible connection to Wikileaks and Russian hackers.

“Mr. Stone’s invocation of his Fifth Amendment privilege must be understood by all to be the assertion of a Constitutional right by an innocent citizen who denounces secrecy,” Stone attorney Grant Smith said in a letter to the committee.

For weeks, Americans have been told that the Robert Mueller investigation was likely “wrapping up”, and that we would soon be free of this long, national nightmare.
Obviously, that is not yet the case.
