Longtime Trump ally Roger Stone has promptly begun lashing out after recently getting subpoenaed by the House committee investigating the Capitol riot. In a post to his account on the fringe social media site known as Telegram, Stone insisted that the committee should be scrutinizing former Trump aide Katrina Pierson instead of him — although these comments reveal general ignorance on his part, since the panel already subpoenaed Pierson. That showing of ignorance doesn’t exactly bolster Stone’s case in his defense.

Still, Stone — clearly unnerved by the subpoena that he now faces — frantically ranted as follows:

‘Given what I know, I am perplexed as to why the January 6 committee has not issued a subpoena to Katrina Pierson, in other words someone deeply involved in the violent and unlawful acts of January 6, rather than me, given that I was not there and have no advance knowledge or involvement whatsoever in the events at the Capitol that day.’

Alongside his remarks, Stone included Pierson’s mugshot from a 1997 shoplifting arrest. Check out Stone’s meltdown captured in the post below:

Again, though — the riot investigation committee has already subpoenaed Pierson, who was reported to have been a “liaison” of sorts between rally efforts in D.C. on January 6 and the Trump administration. It’s not immediately clear whether Pierson has complied with the subpoena, although committee member Rep. Pete Aguilar (D-Calif.) has stated that the panel has spoken with over 200 witnesses at this point. The full list of those names hasn’t been released, as of this week.

As for Stone, the riot investigation committee outlined in a press release how he “was reportedly in Washington on January 5th and 6th, spoke at rallies on January 5th, and was slated to speak at the January 6th rally at the Ellipse that directly preceded the violent attack on the Capitol.” Stone has also ‘made remarks that he was planning to “lead a march to the Capitol” from the Ellipse rally,’ the committee notes — so what did he actually know about what would subsequently unfold at the Capitol on January 6?
