Breaking Tuesday:

This Tuesday morning, Roger Stone pleaded not guilty to the seven accusations made against him within an indictment published early Friday morning by The Federal Bureau of Investigation.

According to sources in the courtroom, Roger Stone sat beside members of the longtime Russian Investigation led by Robert S. Mueller III. These sources also remarked that when the time was right for Stone to speak, he did so very quietly. Most of his answers consisted of the normal courtroom answers; “I do” and “Yes, your honor.”

To conclude, no charges were maid to Roger Stone’s pre-existing bail which was set at $250,000 dollars last Friday when he was raided and arrested by The FBI. His travel is still limited only to Florida, New York, Virginia, and Washington, D.C.

Stone has homes in Florida and New York, and will most likely need to fly into Washington/Virginia in the near future.

Take a look below to learn all that led up to this:

As I’ve covered in the podcast and other forms of my content, it is now becoming more evident that Jerome Corsi has become one of the many prominent political figures in Robert Mueller’s Political Investigation.

What Happened?

Friday morning, Roger Stone woke up to The Federal Bureau of Investigation raiding his home. Stone, an associate of Donald Trump, and famously a guest/co-host on Alex Jone’s InfoWars was indicted on 7 counts.

According to the Federal Report, Roger Stone was charged with 1 count of “Obstruction of Justice”, 5 counts of “lying” to investigation teams about the Russia-based Trump Campaign Attack, and one other count of witness tampering.

Stone has infamously denied all of these accusations even before they were made federally official, and said he is completely innocent, and has done nothing wrong.

How does The White House respond to this?

As you may be able to imagine, The White House jumped on this story pretty quickly denying any involvement with Roger Stone, and the charges that have been placed on him. 

This Friday morning, Sarah Sanders stood proudly in front of The White House and denied any interaction with Roger Stone and The White House saying exactly Roger Stone and the charges made “has nothing to do with the President”.

How does Roger Stone respond to this?

In a press conference held outside of a courthouse where he was in Florida, he continuously said he was innocent, and stated the arrest and tactical measures used against Stone were sad. 

Mr. Stone also said that all of these charges are politically motivated, and he, himself is convinced he is not guilty. In addition to these statements, Stone said he will definitely not testify against President Trump. 

He proclaimed all of this as a crowd gathered behind the news media chanting “Lock him up!”. 

The Important Points in The DOJ Memo

The 24 Page Indictment published by The United States Department of Justice points out that a “senior Trump Campaign official was directed to contact STONE about any additional releases and what other damaging information Organization 1 had regarding the Clinton Campaign. STONE thereafter told the Trump Campaign about potential future releases of damaging material by Organization 1.”

WikiLeaks. Organization 1 is WikiLeaks. For those who don’t know, WikiLeaks is the privately run agency that is responsible for researching leaks, publishing leaks, and is technically a politically skewed data management company that offers its assets publicly for free.

To a more famous and relevant point, WikiLeaks led the publishing effort for the 33,000 emails Hillary Clinton deleted. This move, led by Julian Assange, the founder and president of WikiLeaks is also heavily in Mueller’s investigation.

What Was Not Covered in The DOJ Memo

There are so many things we still do not know. More prominently, though, were the extent of all the communications made by the parties involved. We learn as much as we know in this paragraph of the memo.

“During the summer of 2016, Stone spoke to senior Trump Campaign officials about Organization 1 and information it might have had that would be damaging to the Clinton Campaign. Stone was contacted by senior Trump Campaign officials to inquire about future releases by Organization 1.” Remember, Organization 1 is WikiLeaks.
