Triggered Trump Erupts In Conspiracy During Roger Stone Sentencing


With the 2020 presidential election just months away, President Donald Trump is still hung up over Hillary Clinton, who he faced in an election well over three years ago. All this time, and what’s he done in office? Tweeted angrily about Hillary Clinton. This Thursday morning, he took to the platform to insist that “Crooked Hillary Clinton” should have gone to jail for supposedly leaking classified information, which she did not actually do. Take note — the president is publicly calling for the prosecution and apparent jailing of his political enemies, even after those individuals were investigated ad nauseum by the justice system.

He posted:

‘“They say Roger Stone lied to Congress.” @CNN OH, I see, but so did Comey (and he also leaked classified information, for which almost everyone, other than Crooked Hillary Clinton, goes to jail for a long time), and so did Andy McCabe, who also lied to the FBI! FAIRNESS?’

Again — there’s no evidence that Clinton “leaked classified information.” That allegation is simply untrue, no matter how many times Trump says it and seemingly tries to wish it into existence. Neither is there any evidence that former FBI Director James Comey either leaked classified information or lied to Congress, and finally, neither is there any apparent evidence warranting any kind of action against McCabe for any alleged lies.

Each and every one of those individuals were investigated — Republicans and the FBI looked into Hillary, the Justice Department’s inspector general examined Comey’s behavior, and the D.C. U.S. Attorney’s office formally closed a probe of McCabe’s behavior just the other day. Trump is saying that all of these duly obtained conclusions should be abandoned so that his political adversaries can be prosecuted for baselessly alleged crimes. Meanwhile, the evidence against Roger Stone remains abundantly clear.

This Thursday morning, Trump also alleged that Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) and former Secretary of State John Kerry had violated the Logan Act, which prohibits civilian meddling in foreign policy. In reality, they had a duly organized meeting with Iranian counterparts, and in a perfectly Trumpian hypocritical twist, the president’s own former national security adviser Michael Flynn, while a civilian, actually intervened against the then-Obama administration’s foreign policy. He told Russia that they shouldn’t worry about sanctions because Trump would lift them.
