Roger Stone, whose 40-month sentence was commuted for lying to Congress and tampering with witnesses in Donald Trump’s Russia investigation, said Trump should seize total power and put celebrities like Bill and Hillary Clinton and Mark Zuckerberg in jail if he does Biden loses to Joe in November.
The longtime Republican strategist and filthy fraudster, with a tattoo of Richard Nixon on his back, lied during the 201
In turn, special adviser Robert Mueller and the Senate Intelligence Committee suspected that Trump had lied when he said he couldn’t remember discussing the leaks with Stone.
Stone did not turn Trump on and had his sentence reduced on the recommendation of Attorney General William Barr. But he was still facing jail before Trump acted. His conviction stands.
Both men were in Nevada on Saturday, Trump hosted campaign events while Stone tried to raise money for himself. He gave Trump his advice in case he should lose in a call to conspiracy theorist Alex Jones’ online show Infowars on Thursday.
Citing widely debunked fraud allegations related to early voting, postal and postal voting, Stone said Trump should consider invoking the Insurrection Act and the Clintons, former Senate majority leader Harry Reid, Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, Tim To arrest Apple’s Cook and “anyone” who can be shown to be involved in illegal activities “.
Stone also said, “The ballots in Nevada on election night should be confiscated by federal marshals and taken from the state. You are completely damaged. Votes should not be counted from the state of Nevada if it is found to be the demonstrable case. Send Federal Marshals to the Clark County Electoral Authority, Mr. President! “
Nevada hasn’t gone to a Republican since 2004, but is emerging as a crucial competition this year. Biden is leading there, but the polls have tightened.
Trump’s own rhetoric was not far from that of the man he had spared from prison. The president continued to make unsubstantiated claims of election fraud on Saturday. He and his campaign have also consistently claimed without evidence that “antifa” or anti-fascist activists pose a deadly threat to suburban voters who are unleashed if Biden wins.
Commenting on a Daily Beast report on leftist activist groups planning what to do “if the election ends without a clear outcome or with a Biden victory that Trump does not recognize,” Jones told Jones that the website said should be closed.
“If the Daily Beast is known to be involved in seditious and illegal activities,” he said, “all staff can be taken into custody and the office closed.” You want to play war, this is war. “
Stone also advocated “holding an election day operation with the FBI, federal marshals, and Republican officials across the country to be ready to raise legal objections [to results] and if necessary to physically stand in the way of criminal activity ”.
In an interview broadcast on Saturday night, Trump told Fox News that he would like to “put down” all left protests.
“We’ll take them off very quickly if they do that,” he said to Jeannine Pirro.
“We have the right to do so. We have the power to do that if we want to. Look, it’s called a riot. We just mail in and we make it very easy. I mean it’s very easy. I would rather not do this because there is no need to, but if we had to, we would do this and put it down within minutes, within minutes. “
The Insurrection Act of 1807 allows the President to use federal troops to enforce federal law. Last used in 1992, it received much discussion this summer, amid protests against racism and police brutality resulting from the murder of George Floyd by officials in Minneapolis.
Ultimately, Trump simply chose to send federal agents to confront protesters, particularly in Portland, Oregon, which proved extremely controversial.
In his interview with Fox News, Trump discussed an incident in the city in which US marshals shot and killed a suspect in the murder of a member of a right-wing group.
“There has to be retaliation when you have crimes like this,” Trump said.
He also said protests like the one in Portland sparked a “backlash” from the right wing “like you haven’t seen in many, many years.”
