Legendary conservative activist and political consultant Roger Stone Jr. found himself in the middle of the House Intelligence Committee hearing maelstrom on Monday when top Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff questioned whether the FBI was investigating him and other Trump associates as part of its probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 campaign.
Democrats have been running with conspiracy theories for several months that the Trump administration was working with Russia to take down Hillary Clinton. So far they have offered zero evidence to back up the theory but that hasn’t stopped fake news media outlets from running daily headlines promoting the conspiracy.

Roger Stone: The investigative reporter Jerry Corsi sent me a very long memo in July about the Podesta brothers financial dealings in eastern Europe. Remember the context, we are taking an enormous amount of incoming from the Clintonistas on Manafort. We know that Tony and John’s activities in the region are far more nefarious and corrupt than anything Manafort is even accused of. Corsi shows me the first of a series of pieces and encourages me to write my own… We outline the Podestas, organized crime, bank fraud, money laundering and so on. My tweet specifically says Podesta’s time in the barrel will come. Something along those lines.
Trust me, it will soon the Podesta’s time in the barrel. #CrookedHillary

Notice it does not say #Wikileaks, #Assange. So the crazy left added two and two and came up with six, the numbers said… On CNN Mr. Podesta said Stone foreshadowed the email. No I did not. The words email or Wikileaks are nowhere in my comment. It’s a wild guess. CNN have the journalistic ethics to have Stone on to refute the lie. That’s what real organizations do.
