Roger Stone: Wikileaks Will Hit Hillary On Wednesday

Three days ago US Rep. Jerrold Nadler questioned FBI director James Comey about Trump surrogate Roger Stone’s self-proclaimed ties to Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, who will supposedly issue an announcement from the balcony of his London hideout on Tuesday night. Early this morning Stone posted the above tweet. Media Matters has the transcript of Nadler’s questions:

REP. JERROLD NADLER (D-NY): Let me talk about a case that may pose a current national security threat to the United States and ask you a few questions about that. In his earlier remarks, Mr. [John] Conyers [D-MI] referenced an August 30 letter from the ranking members of a number of House committees. That letter asked whether the FBI was investigating troubling connections between Trump campaign officials and Russian interests and whether they contributed to the illegal hacking of the Democratic National Committee and the Democratic National Campaign Committee. You’re familiar with that letter, I take it?

JAMES COMEY (FBI DIRECTOR): Yes, I’m familiar with the letter.

NADLER: I’d like to ask you a few questions. The letter said this and I quote. “On August 8, 2016, Roger Stone, a Donald Trump confidant, revealed that he has communicated with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange about the upcoming release of additional illegally hacked Democratic documents. Mr. Stone made these statements during a Republican campaign event while answering a question about a potential ‘October surprise.’”

Obviously if someone is stating publicly that he is in direct communication with the organization that obtained these illegally hacked documents, I assume the FBI would want to talk to that person. Has the FBI interviewed Roger Stone about his communications with Julian Assange or his knowledge of how WikiLeaks got these illegally obtained documents?

COMEY: I can’t comment on that.

NADLER: Mr. Stone stated that he has knowledge about upcoming leaks of additional illegally hacked documents. Has the FBI asked him about those communications?

COMEY: I also can’t comment on that.

NADLER: Because it’s an ongoing investigation?

COMEY: I don’t want to confirm whether there is or is not an investigation.

PREVIOUSLY ON JMG: Last month Stone called for the execution of Bill Clinton for treason. In August, Stone vowed to move to Costa Rica if Hillary is elected. Also in August he declared that he is working with Wikileaks to bring down Hillary. That same week he promoted a website that calls for executing all homosexuals. Stone has been banned from appearing on CNN and MSNBC for his long history of racist tweets and for calling for the executions of Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders.

  • Oikos

    I’ll be pretty surprised if they have anything new. So far the October surprise is the NYT story on drumpf’s taxes.

    • bkmn

      And they will use wikileaks to avoid talking about it.

    • MikeBx2

      And it’s only Oct. 2nd. I’ve a feeling Trump and his deplorables will be battling one surprise after another.

    • Duh-David

      Quick! Look over there!

      • Oikos

        Squirrel!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        • Duh-David

          Almost went with that, again.

    • JulieBL

      I’ve heard that tht NYT has more than what they’ve gone public with…

  • Lazycrockett

    I told Hillary to delete that “Skinning that live kitten” video.

    • Ross

      And then I told her not to EAT the live skinned kitten!

      But did she listen?

      NO!

    • cleos_mom

      She was caught doing something “disgusting.” Like using the bathroom.

    • vorpal

      • Joe in PA

        awwww, sorry you had to read that kitty…some people are just awful. 🙁

  • bkmn

    Perhaps Mr. Stone needs to be tried for treason.

    • Bruno

      That’d be great if the biggest fallout from these Wed. leaks will be Stone’s arrest.

      Makes my stomach churn that these righties hate the liberals so much that theyd suck putins dick to rig a US election.
      They arent patriots. Theyre scum

      • CLMAZ

        But you’re ok with the Dems doing whatever tit takes to ruin Trump’s chances. Double standards, much?
        Keep in mind, it was Hillary and Bill Clinton who helped Frank Giustra with the uranium deals in Kazakhstan, ultimately leading to SOS Hillary Clinton signing off on the uranium mining deal with Russia’s Rosatom (nuke energy agency,) and allowing Russia to gain control of 51% of the global uranium mining rights, and 21% of the US uranium mining rights. It was Hillary’s signature that allowed Russia to begin THEIR mining operations in 4 US states: NM, TX, UT, and WY. So, while you imagine shady deals between Putin and Trump, remember that Putin has Hillary’s official signature on a deal that culminated in a total of approximately $145 million “donations” to the Clinton Foundation. Now……. who’s suckin’ whose what?

        • Stephen Elliot Phillips

          Hahahahaha

        • Matt

          I think it might be your lips to Trump’s micro-you-know-what.

  • watchthewingnuts
  • MikeBx2

    The only October surprises that have an impact are those that really are surprises. If you have to announce it ahead of time, it means you’ve got nothing.

    • crewman

      You’re probably right. They’re using the threat of it as a form of terrorism.

      • MikeBx2

        Exactly. Much like Trump’s birther conspiracies. “Just wait until I tell you what I’ve discovered.”

        • watchthewingnuts

          Yeah, kinda like that big speech from Melania that was supposed to clear all her immigration stuff right up?

          • crewman

            In fairness, Melania’s had trouble finding speeches in which Michelle Obama has talked about her own immigration issues. These speeches don’t write themselves you know.

          • Bad Tom

            Just wait until the Eleventeenth of Never, the date for Melania’s big speech. You’ll be sorry then!

      • BREAKING: Hillary Clinton only changes her underwear every OTHER day!

          • Gerry Fisher

            Ish!

    • SoCalVet

      If they had anything they would have already released it because they are desperate. Desperate deplorables have no patience or ability to hold back from what I’ve seen.

      • MikeBx2

        That’s right. If they had anything new, they wouldn’t be spending all their time talking about 30 year old Clinton scandals.

        • John30013

          30-year-old Bill Clinton scandals.

          I suppose if Bill were running for President, those might (but probably not) be relevant. But since he isn’t, this is just more deflection and noise from Trump’s corner.

          I’m glad the MSM seems to be pushing back (finally) on Trump. I don’t ascribe any high-minded motives the them, however. I’ve said throughout this campaign that the MSM need a horse race. Now that Trump has pulled close to Clinton in the polls, it’s in the MSM’s interests to hit him harder.

          • MikeBx2

            Yes, I’ve been very frustrated that the media has allowed this to go on this long. But then again, Americans have short attention spans and are late to pay attention anyway, so perhaps this is the right time.

          • Brianna Amoré

            I noticed the change right after they were all suckered into covering his so-called “Birther News Conference”. That was the moment they all seemed to realize that they’ve been played for chumps by Trump.

          • If they all weren’t such idiots they’d have known they were being played a year ago.

          • Todd20036

            They weren’t relevant when Bill was president, much less now

          • 30 year old Bill Clinton scandals being talked about by a candidate and surrogates WHO ALL DID THE SAME THINGS!!!

    • sword

      HRC is actually an alien sent from Alpha Centauri to kidnap people as a food supply. Wikileaks knows this is a fact because they got the info from ‘an un-named source…a really, really good un-named source, wearing a blond wig and orange makeup.

    • agcons

      . . . it means you’ve got nothing.

      Exactly.

    • exactly…

    • CLMAZ

      Wrong. If you have something significant to the upcoming election, you announce it ahead of time, to make sure it gets the maximum amt of visibility. In a crooked govt, things of significance tend to disappear………… even if it takes hammers or “Bleachbit” to accomplish it.

      The only reason someone would destroy emails is if they have “something to hide.” No one cares about Chelsea’s wedding, or Hillary’s yoga classes. There would be no reason to go to the lengths Hillary & her minions went to in order to “cover up” the information contained in those emails. There would be no reason for her to risk indictment for herself and her sycophants by refusing to produce these inconsequential. personal emails. And we already know that some of the emails she sent contained detailed information about an Iranian scientist working as a spy for the US. The emails were sent in 2010, and he was captured by Iran shortly afterward, tried, convicted and executed for treason in 2012. Wonder who dropped the ball (and his identity) in that case?

      Thinking minds realize, if those emails were all to come back, Hillary would die in a federal prison, along with a number of other people working with her. 18 minutes of missing audio tape was enough to send more than a dozen people to prison behind Watergate (Hillary knows, because she was part of that investigation.) But no one died behind Nixon’s misdeeds. Hillary has more bodies stacking up around her than a funeral home after the Haiti earthquake. Her questionable actions have gone far outside the US, and simple spying on the other party. Those emails went global, and NO ONE knows who they went to, or what kind of highly classified info they contained……… but THAT would be a reason to want the emails destroyed, wouldn’t it? The world would look at wedding and yoga emails, yawn, and move along. The world will string Hillary up by her ankles and take great pleasure in making her pay for her betrayal of the American people, if her emails ever surface.

      Welcome to the world of Jullian Assange and the anticipation of his next emails…. saving the best for last is assuring that he has the biggest audience to serve as witnesses.

      • MikeBx2

  • Do Something Nice

    Forget the Wednesday surprise. How many times can Trump, Stone and others break the law with NO APPARENT EFFORT MADE TO PROSECUTE THEM?

    Tax fraud. Communication with wanted felons. Possession of stolen property. I’m sure there are diplomatic laws being broken too.

    ARREST THEM.

    • cleos_mom

      Maybe that will happen if it dawns on Comey that Trump apparently doesn’thave as much money to pay as he claims.

    • Do Something Nice

      From wiki about Roger Stone:

      “In 1999, Stone credited his youthful good looks to “decades of following a
      regimen of Chinese herbs, breathing therapies, tai chi and
      acupuncture,” according to the Times.[12] Stone wears a diamond pinkie ring in the shape of a horseshoe and in 2007 he had Richard Nixon’s face tattooed on his back.”

      • David Milley

        That’s one hell of a tramp stamp!

      • MBear

        his youthful good looks are from his habit of eating the flesh of 3 whole live babies every morning.

        People are saying this. The best people.

      • Neely OHara

        WHAT “youthful good looks?!”

        Something must be wrong with my laptop’s display — he looks like an ugly old white guy to me…

        • Rolf

          Leave the probe in after dropping him off in deep space.

    Here’s a suggestion: let’s help out Mr. Stone by deporting him to Costa Rica if Hillary is elected.

    • Oikos

      Why do you hate the people of Costa Rica?

      • Acronym Jim

        I’m sure they have “high-density” housing that would be perfect for Mr. Stone. If they still balk at his potential residency, I hear Guantanamo Bay, Cuba is nice this time of year.

      • DaddyRay

        It is timed to be released after Pence gets trounced in the debate to distract the media

      It is very possible that this release will include altered or misleadingly quoted content because there will not be enough time to verify it

    • cleos_mom

      Maybe she said something shocking to a mistakenly-trusted confidante. Something like thinking Bernie Sanders has bad hair. Or a previously well-concealed distaste for broccoli.

    • GayOldLady

      They need to grow-the-hell up.

  • GayOldLady

    They’ll do what they always do……They’ll release tens of thousands of documents that have nothing to do with anything, they’ll point to a couple of emails that may or may not imply some wrongdoing, the press will go ape shit for a couple of weeks, finally someone with COMMON SENSE will actually look through the documents to see if there’s anything REALLY incriminating and find nothing. In the meantime the adverse reporting, despite the fact there’s no there, there, will knock Hillary back a couple of points. As always, the saboteur named Julian Assange, wallowing in his unbridled hatred for Hillary, is hooking up with Russia to benefit Trump.

    Come out of your hidey hole Assange so we can extradite you, try you before a jury of American’s and send you to Leavenworth for what’s left of your pathetic little life.

      I hope you’re right. This kind of shit worries me.

      • Bruno

        The scenario GayOldLady described is pretty worrying. It could lead to a really tight race if the lasting effects of the leak are measured in weeks instead of days or hours. I’m hoping there’s nothing much there at all, and it’s all bluster. That’s more along the lines of what I’m expecting, but we’ll see.

        • I’m afraid at this point that it won’t matter if there’s any substance at all — with all the isolationists, racists, neo-Nazis and Clinton haters lined up behind Trump, there will be a lot of noise, and these days, that’s all it takes — don’t expect the media to do anything but repeat it over and over again.

          • Steven B

            Those aren’t the voters she needs. She needs the undecided.

          • Should have been clearer: That was my point: the undecideds aren’t going to be able to wade through the constant anti-Clinton buzz, especially since it’s being reinforced by the “mainstream” press.

    • lymis

      Unfortunately, the point isn’t to actually uncover an actual disqualifying fact or incident. The point is to throw enough innuendo and doubt around that it damages a candidate’s credibility.

      Given enough time, it’s likely that Hillary would recover from anything that anyone could find out about her – especially anything that’s likely to turn up in the DNC records, of all places. But the question isn’t whether it’s genuinely damning, but how it can be spun.

      Ideally, the “news” would be that Trump supporters and foreign agents are doing illegal things in an effort to take down a major candidate for US president – much like it was the Watergate break-in, not anything the criminals found, that took down Nixon.

      I’m not holding my breath for the media to have that kind of journalistic integrity at this point.

    • Treant

      I gotta say, my level of worry about Wednesday’s Big Reveal is, on the 1 to 10 scale, about a 2.

      It’s only a 2 because you know the media will make hay with it.

    • ChrisMorley

      He’ll be questioned about all the sex charges in the Embassy on 21 October on behalf of the Swedish prosecutor.
      He hopes the Swedish Prosecutor’s office will then drop the charges, the European arrest warrant will be cancelled and then he can walk free. I’m not so sure. 4 years locked in a small room can play self-delusional tricks on the mind.

    • CLMAZ

      You people are amazing…….. sad and scary, but amazing. You’re more concerned with getting Assange, than you are about finding out if he knows truths about Hillary that YOU DON’T KNOW. You’ve decided that he has nothing, but you KNOW NOTHING. You need to accept the fact that, sooner or later, someone is going to come forward with enough evidence to send Hillary (and probably many other people,) to prison for a very long time. If such info is out there, I would much rather is is brought out now……… by whatever means possible…….. than after the election. If someone has proof of her corruption and treason, she doesn’t deserve to continue to dupe the voters who believe she’s is such a saint. Let them see her without cover-ups NOW, before they waste their votes on someone who may be indicted in six months. (Yes, they can indict a seated POTUS……. but only for specific crimes against the state.) If it’s going to happen, please let it happen BEFORE she is entrusted with any more power to abuse and misuse.

      And in case you aren’t aware of it, Hillary is the reason the security has been beefed up on Assange. She made comments about a drone hit to take him out. One such comment could have been considered sarcasm. But she took it further and actually said that “he would be a soft target”…….. and THAT indicates that she has given serious consideration to having her “inconvenient truths” eliminated through MURDER. What kind of person looks to a “hit” as a way to solve their problems?

      • GayOldLady

        You’re such a tool that you spread BS because someone on some nutjob website like “Info Wars” or “Breitbart” or in this case “True Pundit” said so. You folks have been trying for years to get Hillary and you haven’t because there’s no there, there. Nothing but BS from BS’ers like yourself who have nothing but contempt for the truth.

      Does Costa Rica extradite to the US?

      • GayOldLady

        If not I’m sure we’ll figure out a way to perform an extrajudicial extradition.

        • Silver Badger

          Or we could just do a Bin Laden.

          • GayOldLady

            That’s a bit much. I’d prefer to bring him back and put him Leavenworth in a cell near Assange. That way they could talk tough to each other.

          • GayOldLady

            I agree……I shocked some of my friends, who believed we shouldn’t have gone into Pakistan after Bin Laden and we shouldn’t have killed him, when I announced that if Bin Laden had appeared before me I would have unloaded my weapon on him. And I wouldn’t have lost a second of sleep over it.

          • I don’t think Assange has committed any crimes in the US. Assange is obnoxious, hypocritical, an ego maniac. However he just broadcast material that was already stolen by others, like SIPRnet exposure by Chelsea Manning..

            He is a good James Bond Villain, but the guy has been in prison for the past four or so years, a prison of his own making. I doubt the US will extradite him..

            Well he’s sure afraid of Hillary becoming POTUS. I think she’s expressed the belief that he is a saboteur.

          • I think the leaks and feeding them to Wikileaks/Julian Assange was more of Putin getting back at HRC for some of her remarks during a stressful time for Putin when his party looked like it was going to be defeated in 2011 Russia elections.

            I think working with an adversarial government/Russia to undermine our Presidential Election on behalf of the Russian Dictator, sort of sounds like espionage to me.

          • greenmanTN

            (Nerd moment) The word saboteur comes from a industrial revolution labor uprising when workers threw their wooden clogs, called “sabots,” into the machinery, thus making it break down.

            (I double checked this and there is some dispute about this etymology.)

      • The famous countries that don’t have extradition treaties with the US are Cuba, Russia and North Korea.. (There are bunch of others)

        Costa Rica has an extradition treaty with the US. So does actually Ecuador, which was weird that Edward Snowden wanted to go there.

        The country that Stone would be most friendly for his political asylum would be Russia.

    • Roger Stone is pretty renown for his grandstanding and his bragging.

  • Friday

    It’s really time for Ecuador to be held responsible for aiding and abetting this theft and espionage and even helping publicise it at this point.

  • GayOldLady

    The best solution to WikiLeaks would be if the MSM refused to publish any of their stories and if the U.S. Government blocked their website using the authority of the Patriot Act.

    • Silver Badger

    • Skeptical_Inquirer

      I think it’s very telling when uber rich people like Cuban and Bloomberg are willing to forego a tax cut to avoid having Trump as president.

      • I have a very well off friend who said about Bush (vs Clinton), I’d rather pay taxes on the higher income I made in the 90s than get a tax cut in a sluggish economy. In other words, even at the higher tax rate, most rich people were better off. You just have a few sociopaths who resent paying taxes at all. Other than that many of the very rich people are Democrats. They do so much better when Democrats are in office.

      no clinton should shut up and let trump keep digging his grave.

  • lymis

    If they’re releasing it Wednesday, then Tuesday would be the appropriate time for a media blitz on what an ass Assange is, and how illegal what he’s doing is.

  • Blake Jordan

    If it is the end to Clinton, then it will definitely be the end of the USA in a legitimate position of power…

    Andy Borowitz:
    While some people are saying that Trump paying no taxes is a reason he shouldn’t be President, I think it pales in comparison with him being out of his fucking mind.

  • DumbHairyApe

    Given the GOP’s and the Alt+Right’s track record on releasing information that’s “sure to destroy Hillary’s quest” for the Presidency, I’m sure this will be nothing more than a tiny blip on the radar of politically important issues.

    • Bruno

      Yeah, good point. I view it as more of a rallying cry to the base base. He’s basically saying, “keep your chins up! this tax thing isn’t good right now but we’ll have more (faux) shit on Hillary.”

  • Megrim Twist

    Hillary Clinton Is A Man! — Trump screams into microphone at rally yesterday near Butthole, PA. “Why won’t she show us her penis?! Why is she hiding it?! Show us the penis!”

    — I dunno. It’s early and I’m just making shit up.

    • EweTaw

      Sounds fine to me. Just as good, if not better, than the other crap that’s being posted. 🙂

  • Corsair Tact

    IOW: Comey admitted there is an ongoing investigation yielding results.

  • joe ho

    Obama made a mistake appointing a Republican. It was during the phase when he was trying to make the Republicans like him. Comey’s infamous news conference was an abuse of his power.

    • canoebum

      Yes, but it is being used as a precedent by people such as Sen. Warren to obtain release of details from the investigations of bank executives after the Wall Street calamity that brought down the economy and ruined millions of households. He will rue the day he decided to give a “tell-all” news conference on the Democratic Presidential candidate.

  • EweTaw

    I gotta tell ya, the October Surprise I found in my pumpkin spice latte this morning was more than I could take. I can’t take any more!

  • Bernie

    Now what… ? Hillary killed Vince Foster?

  • “Last month Stone called for the execution of Bill Clinton for treason.”

    I think the Alex Jones Crowd and other paranoid far righties and Libertarian Loonies like the alleged traitor to be hung by the neck for their crimes of treason.

    These statements like the above, are basically looney speak and i megaphone speaking (instead of a dog whistle) to the paranoid far right, who hoard, Ammo, Sugar, Bourbon and Juggs magazine for the upcoming Civil War..

  • Bluto
  • Jeffrey

    Nothing like the smell of treason in the morning.

  • DumbHairyApe

    So, let’s just assume that there is some kind of “smoking gun” email that ASSange has been given by his conspiring Russian spies…would NOT Hillary’s group already know what they have since her campaign surely know the entire content of their email and database information? I mean, if you steal something from my house, I’m going to know what you might have.

    If the stolen information WAS so devastating, surely the Clinton campaign would have stepped down by now, knowing what that information is.

    At the very least, they know what the “smoking gun” information is or might be and have a very well thought out prepared defense explaining that the “smoking gun” is, in fact, simply an empty water pistol that has been made into something by their opponents, that it is not.

    I’m not terribly concerned about these “crying conspiratorial wolf” people.

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    Take a good look undecided voters, this guy could be in charge of the NSA or Justice Department in a Trump administration.

    Not saying I know for sure, but I’ve heard things from people, the best people, the smartest people, with the best brains and Hillary’s people, yeah, that’s it, it was Hillary who first pointed this out, she’s the one orchestrating this with Assange because, well, he’s the guy she had an affair with, you know, because the uber smart people told me so and you know what, uber is a german word and, as you know, Angela Merkel is german and well, as I’m sure you can all guess, Assange introduced Hillary to Angela and, well, you know, according to the people I have investigating Hillary, she and Merkel are having an illicit affair, I have proof, but I won’t share it until I’m elected president.

    Non-existent Christ, Trump-psychodystopicnarcissisticemeticneuropathy is catching.

    • agcons

      You did that very well; it could have been Donnie himself.

  • band

    We’ll see what, if anything, Wednesday brings. The Trump campaign is desperate to draw attention away from yesterday’s tax bombshell, which threatens to dominate the week’s headlines.

    I’d wager Stone’s tweet is designed to do exactly that.

  • Larry in Oklahoma

    Now, tell me, if you have earth shattering info that is gonna blow Hillary Clinton’s campaign all to smithereens, why would you wait till Wednesday? Why not yesterday or today? This mind blowing tactic is symptomatic of the Trump campaign and of Trump himself. They want America to hold its breath for 3 days while they produce nothing or else something rehashed and released a long time ago. These guys are little boys playing an adult game. And losing.

    • ChrisMorley

      We were told some time ago that this waiting game is to cause maximum damage to Hillary in the closing weeks of the campaign. Maybe the results will be devasting, but the previous batch hardly caused a dent.

    • William

      The last time all the nation held its breath waiting for a special announcement, it ended in the unveiling of the Segway.

    • It’s Al Capone’s vault all over again.

    • SoCalGal20

      Because the cooked documents won’t be ready until Wednesday. Duh. /s

  • Mike in Texas

    Yep, I believe everything ol’ Roger says.

  • Skeptical_Inquirer

    It really should be emphasized that he’s praising someone who is currently in a hideyhole of a non-friendly government, possibly working with Russia, and is hiding from sex crimes charges. And that someone has been in the news for just pumping info without redacting at all even if it gets people killed which points to no interest in verification.

    • ChrisMorley

      Assange will be questioned on those sex crime charges on 21 October. He’ll be asked questions by an Ecuadorean prosecutor, questions that come from the Swedish prosecutor who will be present. The Swedish Chief Prosecutor’s office will then decide what to do with the charges. The London Guardian reported this last month.

  • Jeffrey

    Or: Ive been working around the clock with Russian hackers, who are notoriously trustworthy. The trustworthiest, actually. And we have come up with, er I mean discovered some emails that will be devastating. It’s so YUGE that we’re going to save it until Wednesday…because we have ten other lies scheduled before then. Totally backed up right now.

  • Stone’s a rat-fucker who’s been boasting there’ll be leaks that will undo Clinton’s entire political career since early this summer. Frankly, I doubt there’s anything at all or if there is anything, it’ll be a big nothingburger.

    Almost doesn’t matter if there is, because since the news won’t be about Trump, the barking yam will be compelled to shove it out of the news cycle with his own latest bimbo eruption.

    In any case, Roger Stone is party to an act of overt treason here.

  • Tulle Christensen

    The rumor is that it will be revealed that Hillary had a private email server while she was SOS

    • Ross

      OMG! That will destroy her!

  • William

    MI-6 should take Assange out. And I don’t mean for pizza.

  • When you have the cards you don’t have to bluff. If they really had something that could end Clinton’s campaign, they wouldn’t be telling us they did. They’d just release it. And they’d release it along, not amid thousands of pages of other documents. Sorry but this is bush league.

    Also, the NY Times appears to have more Trump records than they’ve already released. One news story at a time, I guess.

    • Platos_Redhaired_Stepchild

      They haven’t released it yet because they’re not through manufacturing their fake evidence.

      • CatCope

        Mfg. fake evidence is Hard Work! It’s hard!!! This was one of “W”‘s fave lines. Can’t remember the subject. There were soooo many pearls of wisdom.

    • Exactly this.

      If they’d had anything genuinely major, they would’ve leaked it back in August — at time when, if anybody remembers, they said they were about to leak devastating information which would destroy the Clinton campaign.

      Turned out to be nothing at all.

      What I see Stone and his gang of rat-fuckers trying to do here is to seize the news cycle and to throw the Clinton campaign off its stride. I have no proof of it, but I’ll wager right now Stone’s “October Surprise” will consist of a couple of mildly embarrassing emails coupled with an attempt to freak out the campaign so that something else shakes loose.

      They are, as I’ve remarked in another comment, ignoring one very important elephant in the room: Trump. He cannot stand it when the media isn’t talking about HIM. And all it’ll take is another revelation ala Ms. Machado and he’ll continue his meltdown mode.

      • Ore Carmi

        Thanks for the positive prognosis. A nervous wreck like me really appreciates it.

  • rgrgeo

    Why not release them now? If it’s so damaging, why wait? Unless whatever it is is not that big a deal, and they are trying to drum up paranoia for nothing.

  • karen in kalifornia

    Worth a read. Following back links in the post is the 2008, Jeffrey Toobin profile of scumbag Stone he wrote for the New Yorker. Definitely work a read. http://www.newyorker.com/magaz… The guy is certifiable. The last quote in the profile is Stone’s rule, “Politics isn’t about unifying people, it’s about dividing them and getting your fifty-one percent.” Despicable, which is several grades below Deplorable.

  • Michael

    Treason must be the latest “sincerely held religious belief” on the right.
