Roger Stone cracks up about Trump-Russia investigation, spells his own name wrong
Even as Special Counsel Robert Mueller prepares to try to convict Donald Trump’s campaign chairman Paul Manafort in front of a trial jury, he’s also busy trying to indict Trump’s oldest friend Roger Stone in front of a grand jury. Mueller has called so many of Stone’s associates to testify, it’s clear that he intends to indict and arrest Stone as soon as possible. Suffice it to say that Stone isn’t taking it particularly well.
It’s not that Roger Stone has ever put on the most stable display of behavior on social media to begin with. For instance he was banned from Twitter for life due to his pattern of harassing women. However he’s still active on Instagram, and his ramblings there periodically provide some insight into how he perceives what’s playing out against him. Stone seems to be particularly troubled by Mueller’s recent decision to haul former prostitution ring leader Kristin Davis before the grand jury.
It’s difficult to figure out precisely why Mueller is focused on getting Davis to testify. She’s done computer work for Stone. She also hired a Stone sidekick named Andrew Miller, who is caught up in an alleged scandal involving Stone and the Broward Sheriff’s Office. Is any of this why Mueller is subpoenaing her? Does it relate to her former status as the Manhattan Madam? Does any of it tie directly back to Trump-Russia, is this about a different chapter of Stone’s life of alleged crime? We’ll find out eventually. For now the best clue is that Stone is going berserk about it, even by his standards – suggesting that this particular witness testimony could get very ugly for him.
For instance, this weekend Roger Stone blamed Robert Mueller for an unspecified 9/11 coverup, and then he insisted that he’s being stalked by an unmarked white van. But then Stone posted this message, which frankly doesn’t correlate to anything at all: “Special Counsel Robert Mueller wants to question Kristin Davis about her work for me in 2015 and 2016 except she did not come work with me until Jan 2017 witchhunt fishing expedition – major Mueller f— up!” He then signed his name “Roger Stine.” Either he’s cracked up to the point that he can’t remember how to spell his own name, or perhaps he’s planning to enter the witness protection program.
