It appears everyone in the Donald Trump’s criminal circle is losing their minds due to the ever-tightening investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller. As Palmer Report quipped a few days ago, it sucks to be Roger Stone this week. Things have gotten so bad for Stone that he has resorted to threatening to kidnap his former friend’s dog. No really.
In a recent email to Randy Credico, a New York City comic and person Stone previously identified as his “backchannel” to WikiLeaks during the 2016 campaign, Stone said to Credico, “You are a rat. You are a stoolie. You backstab your friends — run your mouth my lawyers are dying [to] rip you to shreds.” Stone followed that up with, “I’m going to take that dog away from you,” talking about Credico’s therapy dog, Bianca, a Coton de Tulear. “Not a f***ing thing you can do about it either because you are a weak broke piece of s***.”
While these email exchanges between the previous good friends were originally private, Credico recently shared them during a “Skullduggery” podcast by Daniel Klaidman and Michael Isikoff. The feud between Stone and Credico appears to have started when Isikoff’s book “Russian Roulette” quoted Credico denying Stone’s prior claims that he was indeed his contact to WikiLeaks. Since then, Stone has publicly suffered what appears to be a mental breakdown, going as far as calling his former friend and protégé Sam Nunberg a “cokehead” in an Instagram video.
While Roger Stone has been acting strangely for quite some time, he now seems to be getting worse on a daily basis. His outbursts and accusations of people being on drugs seem to match up those people making news in Mueller’s investigation. The Wall Street Journal reported last week that Mueller was looking into Stone’s claim of meeting with Julian Assange came out prior to reports of Stone urging Trump not to fire Mueller, although he is still pushing for Trump to replace Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. Just as Mueller is likely to drop more big news in the next few days, Stone is likely to react in some strange way. Hopefully this time he won’t threaten to steal anyone’s dog.
