Donald Trump’s former campaign adviser and longtime personal friend Roger Stone has suddenly agreed to testify before the House Intelligence Committee, and now it’s officially on the schedule. This is notable because Stone has previously admitted to repeated contact with the Russian hacker who stole the emails of Trump’s election opponents. Stone is also the third Trump campaign adviser this week to have been revealed to be cooperating with the investigation.

We’ll see how cooperative the notoriously belligerent Roger Stone ends up being during his testimony, which Politico reports is now officially set to happen next month (link). But what stands out here is the timing. On Monday it was revealed that another former Trump campaign adviser, Carter Page, has been meeting all along with federal authorities to discuss the Trump Russia scandal – which suggests he may have flipped and given up crucial details or evidence about the scandal. This news appears to have set off a chain reaction.

Just as the Carter Page news was about to break, Donald Trump began vehemently defending himself against “collusion” on Twitter, suggesting that he fears Page gave the Feds evidence of said collusion. In that same timeframe Russia recalled its Ambassador, who is believed to have been the mastermind of the Trump-Russia collusion. And today former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort officially registered as a paid foreign agent after have previously refused to do so, meaning that he’s also now suddenly cooperating with the investigation on an unknown level.

   

So even though Roger Stone is publicly asserting that he’s only testifying because he hates John Podesta, the timing here can’t be ignored. The Carter Page story seems to have sent everyone in the Trump-Russia camp into panic mode. And between Page, Manafort, and now Stone, that means at least three Trump advisers are cooperating with the probe on some level. That’s in addition to the widespread suspicion that Michael Flynn may have flipped on Trump as well. If you’re a regular reader, feel free to support Palmer Report
