Roger Stone’s Radio Interview Goes Haywire When He’s Served With A Lawsuit For His Role In The Jan. 6 Riots

Roger Stone got a pardon from failed, one-term, twice-impeached former president Donald Trump after he was convicted on charges of witness tampering and lying to Congress, but he’s in legal trouble yet again, getting handed a lawsuit by a process server Wednesday while he was in the middle of a radio interview.

Audio of the process server giving Stone the bad news was posted on Twitter by former federal prosecutor Ron Filipkowski and has quickly gone viral:

“While Roger Stone was live on the air this morning with ‘Real Talk 93.3’ (St Louis) doing an interview about the 2024 election, he gets served by a process server with the January 6 lawsuit.”

Stone had just started to explain to the interviewer why he thinks it’s so important for Trump to run again when he announced:

“Hold on a second, I have a process server at my front door about to serve me in the latest lawsuit.”

The papers, Stone said, were related to a civil lawsuit in the District of Columbia:

“Alright, I have just been served in the January 6th lawsuit — live, right here on your radio show. This is a big, big stack of papers, which is good, because we’re out of toilet paper.”

Cheering quickly began on social media after Stone revealed he was headed to court yet again:

Karma is a son of a bitch, ain’t it, Roger?

Roger Stone Admits The Jig Is Up – Trump Is About To Be Indicted

Roger Stone — who can best be described as Donald Trump’s longtime friend, confidant, and ass weasel — is a man so filled with vile intent and dirty tricks (many of them both illegal and immoral) that he’s the perfect wingman for the equally dark and twisted failed, one-term president.

Yet despite Stone’s perverted devotion to Trump, even he can sense that Donald’s days of freedom are drawing to a close, and he’s saying exactly that in his own half-witted and unctuous manner, telling the equally disgusting Alex Jones, host of “InfoWars” that indictments are about to be handed down against Trump:

“I would be shocked if they did not come forward with a fabricated indictment for bank fraud or tax fraud against the former president [Donald Trump] by Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr.”

That wasn’t all Stone had to say on the matter of Trump’s pending indictment in New York. He also began providing excuses and rationalizations for Trump’s lifetime crime spree:

“Let’s be very clear. In other words, as you said it earlier, you show the man, and I’ll show you the crime. They’re allowed to root through this man’s business record of forty years, in which he built a real estate empire second to none, combing for a crime, they have no evidence of a crime, they have no probable cause. It is disgraceful, but I do think it is going to happen.”

See how Stone tried to spin what he knows is about to happen? That way he can say he say he’s ahead of the curve while still being a loyal ass fly to Trump and staying on his good side, which is kind of the least thing he can do since he got a pardon from Donnie in the last days of the Trump administration.

But if you want to know what’s really taking place in Manhattan and what we can expect in the months ahead, consider what Trump’s former attorney, Michael Cohen told MSNBC recently, predicting that when Trump is finally charged, those charges will be far-reaching and devastating:

“But it wasn’t just the Trump Organization. It was Donald’s personal accounts. It was the kids’ business accounts, presidential inaugural committee, campaign. Any penny that had anything to do with Donald Trump went through Allen Weisselberg’s desk. I do believe that he has significant exposure, and I think his exposure is not one that you can just hide because the beautiful thing about numbers is numbers don’t lie.”

Donald Trump lies, but the numbers don’t. And the numbers are what will finally bring the former president before the bar of justice.

Roger Stone Told Matt Gaetz He Could Get Trump To Pardon Him For $250K: Report

The scandal surrounding Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) took another wild turn Thursday evening when The Daily Beast released a report suggesting that Roger Stone –who has been a close friend and adviser to Donald Trump for decades — told Gaetz that he could convince the former president to grant him a presidential pardon if the congressman could round up a cool $250,000:

In late 2020, Greenberg was out of jail and in communication with Stone. A series of private messages between the two—also recently obtained by The Daily Beast—shows a number of exchanges between Greenberg and Stone conducted over the encrypted messaging app Signal, with communications set to disappear. However, Greenberg appears to have taken screenshots of a number of their conversations.

“’If I get you $250k in Bitcoin would that help or is this not a financial matter,’ Greenberg wrote to Stone.

“’I understand all of this and have taken it into consideration,’ Stone replied. ‘I will know more in the next 24 hours I cannot push too hard because of the nonsense surrounding pardons.’

“’I hope you are prepared to wire me $250,000 because I am feeling confident,’ Stone wrote to Greenberg on Jan. 13.”

Stone, you may recall, was pardoned by Trump in December of last year. Stone had been convicted of making false statements, obstruction, and witness tampering.

And now it seems that was also eager to help Gaetz and Greenberg get pardons for their alleged crimes, which include sexually trafficking a minor girl across state lines.

Once Stone received the 250K, he suggested that he’d be able to acquire a pardon for Gaetz and Greenberg, writing:

“Your thing is being looked at and I will have an answer by Saturday as to whether you have a viable shot for justice and how to go about it.”

Stone maintains he never tried to buy a pardon for Gaetz :

“I made no formal or informal effort in regard to a pardon for Mr. Greenberg. I recall requesting a document explaining his prosecution The [sic] details of which I was unfamiliar with.”

If it can be proven that Stone did try to use money to obtain a pardon from Trump, there are any number of federal crimes that he, Gaetz, Greenberg, and even Trump can be charged with.

Gaetz, in the meantime, has bigger worries, such as potentially being hit with a life sentence if he’s convicted of sexual trafficking.

Trump Messed Up Some Of His Pardons –The Recipients Can Still Be Prosecuted

In the final days of his administration, Donald Trump handed out 74 pardons and commuted the sentences of 70 others who had been convicted and sentenced to federal prison.

NBC News notes that many of those who received pardons from Trump were close friends, former associates, or people he believed would somehow endear him to the rich assholes he’s known to hang out with at Mar-a-Lago:

“A list of 143 people, made public early Wednesday morning, included his former chief strategist and longtime ally Steve Bannon as well as his former top fundraiser Elliott Broidy. Then, with less than an hour to go before President-elect Joe Biden was set to be sworn in, Trump granted one last pardon: to Albert J. Pirro, Jr., the ex-husband of Fox News host and longtime ally Jeanine Pirro.”

But some of those pardons were so narrowly constructed and written that they leave the recipients open to prosecution by the Justice Department and Attorney General Merrick Garland.

Former Mueller investigation chief prosecutor Andrew Weissmann spelled out the mistakes Trump made in the pardons of two individuals, longtime Trump friend and confidant Roger Stone and Trump’s 2016 campaign manager, Paul Manafort, in an article he wrote for Just Security:

“The pardon for Paul Manafort (on Dec. 23, 2020), is illustrative. By its own terms, the pardon covers only the crimes “for his conviction” on specific charges and not any other crimes (charged or uncharged). Specifically, the pardon is solely for the crimes of conviction — eight in the Eastern District of Virginia and two in the District of Columbia. That leaves numerous crimes as to which Manafort can still be prosecuted, as in Virginia there were 10 hung counts. In Washington, the situation is even more wide open. In that district, Manafort pleaded to a superseding information containing two conspiracy charges, while the entire underlying indictment — containing numerous crimes from money laundering, to witness tampering, to violation of the Foreign Agents Registration Act — now remains open to prosecution as there was no conviction for those charges.”

And then we have Roger Stone and a rouges gallery of other criminals:

“Manafort is not the only example of narrow Trump pardons that may be rectified by the incoming Attorney General. The same narrow pardons were provided to Special Counsel Office defendants Roger Stone (Dec. 23, 2020), George Papadopoulos (Dec. 22, 2020), and Alex van den Zwaan (Dec. 22, 2020), as well as the myriad other felons who received pardons or commutations on December 22 and 23, 2020. As noted, these defendants include murderers, corrupt politicians and law enforcement officers, and Philip Esformes, the single largest health care fraudster in history. These windows of opportunity are due in significant part to a practice followed by prosecutors’ offices across the country: permitting defendants to plead to some, but not all, of their crimes. That feature of these cases should now redound to the benefit of the government, as it may now permit the Department to see that justice is done.”

All of these people can be tried and convicted once again, and this time they won’t be getting a presidential pardon, so they’ll have to serve all of their sentences without the promise of a get-out-of-jail free card waiting for them if they agree to not testify against Trump.

As with everything he does, Donald Trump failed. He wanted to provide protection to those who didn’t testify against him, but all he did was make it more likely they’ll wind up in prison for much longer than they anticipated.

Justice Department Demanding Trump BFF Roger Stone Fork Over $2 Million In Unpaid Taxes

Right before Christmas last year, Donald Trump was handing out pardons left and right. And one of them went to his longtime friend and confidant, Roger Stone, who had been convicted for lying to Congress, witness tampering, and obstruction. Stone had been facing 40 months in federal prison for his crimes.

But while Stone may have dodged incarceration, he’s now facing financial ruin.

On Friday, the Department of Justice sued Stone, accusing him and his wife, Nydia, of failing to pay almost $2 million in unpaid federal taxes and fees, according to NBC News:

“The lawsuit, filed in federal court in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, says the couple underpaid their income taxes by $1,590,361 from 2007 to 2011. It further says Stone, 68, did not pay his full tax bill in 2018, coming up $407,036 short. The couple, the suit alleges, used a commercial entity to ‘shield their personal income from enforced collection and fund a lavish lifestyle despite owing nearly $2 million in unpaid taxes, interest and penalties.'”

A lien is also being sought against a property owned by Stone and his wife:

“The filing wants to thwart the Stones’ transfer of their $525,000 Florida condominium to an entity known as the Bertran Family Revocable Trust, which the government says is controlled by Nydia Stone and has as beneficiaries their children, Adria Stone and Scott Stone.

“A tax lien was being sought against the property, it said. The suit also seeks a judgment for $1,590,361.89.”

The Stones had agreed to a payment plan for their overdue taxes, but stopped making the monthly installments of $20,000. It remains unclear why the couple ceased their payments, unless they’re both financially tapped out, which has been rumored in recent months.

If the Stones lose the federal suit filed against them by the DOJ, they will be facing a massive tax liability that they cannot merely ignore. A continued failure to pay the taxes could also send them both to prison.

Isn’t it interesting how karma manages to catch up with even the biggest douchebags? A little patience is required, but the karmic wheel always spins in the direction of those most deserving of a giant bite on the ass.
