Roger Stone’s Role in Hillary Email Revelations Revealed

Is Roger Stone the next shoe to drop in Mueller’s Russian witch hunt?

Roger Stone

For weeks, we have been hearing rumors about Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s possible ensnaring of longtime Trump confidante Roger Stone.

Now, we may be seeing some action.

Stone, who is a fringe character in the world of Donald Trump, has long been the proverbial “bad guy”. He’s the operative you call when you need someone unafraid of being the heel, and simply getting stuff done.  Stone is also a pal of conspiracy nut Alex Jones, and has spent countless hours appearing on the Infowars broadcasts produced by the aforementioned wild man.

Now, after weeks of controversy and speculation, Roger Stone’s possible role in the 2016 election hullabaloo has been revealed, and it could land him in the interrogation chair soon enough.

Roger Stone was in communication with at least one senior Trump campaign official about upcoming WikiLeaks disclosures during the 2016 presidential race, Stone revealed Thursday.

In an opinion piece for the right-wing Daily Caller, Stone published an exchange he had with Steve Bannon, then the chief executive of the Trump campaign. The emails are among the documents in special counsel Robert Mueller’s possession as he investigates whether Stone had an inside-track with WikiLeaks and whether he shared any of that information with then-candidate Trump or Trump’s inner circle.
Stone went on to allude that a “load” of Hillary’s emails would be dropped “every week” moving forward to the election.
Mueller himself has yet to lay a figurative hand on Stone, however.
While Stone says he still hasn’t been contacted by the special counsel, nearly a dozen of his associates have been contacted for interviews with Mueller’s team or testimony before the grand jury. Last week, Mueller’s team interviewed Bannon for a third time, including about his communications with Stone.
Of course, the revelation of Hillary Clinton’s emails is not what Robert Mueller is investigating, and for good reason.  If these emails had not been made public, the American people may very well have made a different electoral choice in 2016, meaning, ergo, that the truth has set us free from such a nightmare.
Remember folks, sunlight is the best disinfectant, and allowing the world to see the corruption within the Hillary Clinton organization merely allowed Americans to make a more informed choice at the ballot box.

DOD Will Stop Paying Military Members Who Refuse Vaccine

Hasn’t this gone on long enough?

At this point in the pandemic, perhaps the only thing that we know for sure is that we don’t really know when the end will finally arrive.  The virus has continued to power through unpredictable waves, each with their own distinct set of warnings from the powers that be.

And so, not knowing when any of this will be considered “over”, (at least in the federal government’s eyes), overreaching vaccine mandates continue to be enforced.

The latest threat to the unvaccinated takes aim at the US military, hitting service members directly in the wallet.

Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin has ordered that all members of the National Guard and Reserve must receive Covid vaccines or face loss of pay and being marked absent without cause from drills and training, according to a copy of a memo obtained by NBC News.

On Aug. 24, Austin made the Covid vaccine mandatory for all service members and directing the secretaries of the military services to issue their own implementation guidance and timelines. The mandate extended to all service members on active duty or in the Ready Reserve, including the National Guard.

On Nov. 2, Republican Gov. Kevin Stitt of Oklahoma wrote a letter to Austin, asking him to rescind the vaccine mandate for members of the Oklahoma National Guard. Days later, Stitt appointed a new adjutant general of the Oklahoma National Guard who said he would not enforce the vaccine mandate.

But the DOD wasn’t having it.

On Monday, Austin responded to Stitt, denying his request to rescind the mandate for the Oklahoma National Guard. What remained unclear, however, was how the Pentagon planned to enforce the mandate for members of the National Guard while they are on state duty. Most of the time, including when they are training, members are on state duty and answer to their governor.

Further, those who are unable to participate in their duties due to their vaccination status will be accusing no time served during their absences.

Former Trump Chief of Staff Flips, is Cooperating with Jan 6th Committee

Say WHAT?!

Published

on

The work of the January 6th select committee continues to astound and astonish of late, with potential witness after potential witness finding themselves in untenable positions.  Stuck between a rock and a contempt charge.

The latest to reverse course and decide to cooperate is none other than former Trump Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, who this week signaled his willingness to work with the Democratically-led fishing expedition.

 Mark Meadows, who served as former President Donald Trump’s last chief of staff and was involved in efforts to challenge the 2020 election results, is now cooperating with the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol attack.

Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., the chairman of the panel, said in a statement that Meadows has been “engaging” with the panel through his lawyer, providing records to the committee “and will soon appear for an initial deposition.”

Meadows was subpoenaed by the committee in late September for records and testimony regarding his and Trump’s activities before and during the Capitol riot.

The news was rather unexpected:

“Mr. Meadows has been engaging with the Select Committee through his attorney. He has produced records to the committee and will soon appear for an initial deposition,” the committee said in a statement Tuesday. “The Select Committee expects all witnesses, including Mr. Meadows, to provide all information requested and that the Select Committee is lawfully entitled to receive. The committee will continue to assess his degree of compliance with our subpoena after the deposition.”

His lawyer initially said Meadows wouldn’t cooperate with the committee because of Trump’s plans to assert executive privilege, an argument dismissed by the committee, whose members will vote this week to hold former DOJ official Jeffrey Clark in contempt of Congress for ignoring the panel’s subpoenas.

“As we have from the beginning, we continue to work with the Select Committee and its staff to see if we can reach an accommodation that does not require Mr. Meadows to waive Executive Privilege or to forfeit the long-standing position that senior White House aides cannot be compelled to testify before Congress,” Meadows’ attorney George Terwilliger said in a statement Tuesday. “We appreciate the Select Committee’s openness to receiving voluntary responses on non-privileged topics.”

The committee has been widely criticized on the right side of the aisle, with many considering their investigation to be nothing more than a re-do of Trump’s second impeachment, this time with a Democratic majority deciding the outcome.
