Roger Stone has said he is not quitting politics, citing the need to protect the United States from impending “darkness”.
“We are in an epic struggle”, Peter said during an appearance on the Reawaken America Tour. “This is not a fight between two different political parties that both love America, but just have different philosophies of government. Don’t believe it.”
âIt’s a struggle between dark and light,â Stone continued. “It is a struggle between the pious and the ungodly. It is a struggle between good and evil. And if we fail, America will enter a thousand years of darkness.”
The former adviser to former President Donald Trump has spoken openly about US policy, especially Trump. In mid-2020, Stone said in an interview with In the Matrixxx that he hoped right-wing conspiratorial figure QAnon had information that would allow Trump to win the 2020 election.
âI do a lot of interviews and meet a lot of Patriot groups, and I always get the question ‘Mr. Stone, is Q real?’ said Pierre. “And I always say, I don’t know, but let me tell you this: I certainly hope Q is real, and there are a number of indications that the information that is being released has been of value. enormous in this fight for freedom. “
Stone also had alleged ties to extremist groups such as the Oath Keepers and the Proud Boys.
In 2019, Stone was convicted of witness tampering, obstructing a congressional investigation, and lying to the US government regarding relations with Russia in the 2016 presidential election. The Department of Justice recommended a lighter sentence for Stone, prompting four DOJ prosecutors to drop his case entirely.
In July 2020, President Trump commuted Stone’s sentence just before he began his 40-month sentence. White House press secretary at the time, Kayleigh McEnany, issued a detailed statement regarding Stone’s release.
“Roger Stone is well known for his nearly 50 years of work as a consultant to prominent Republican politicians, including President Ronald Reagan, Senator Bob Dole and many others,” McEnany said at the time. . “He is also well known for his outspoken support for President Donald J. Trump and his opposition to Hillary Clinton.”
“Mr. Stone was indicted by the same prosecutors in the Mueller Inquiry charged with finding evidence of collusion with Russia,” McEnany continued.
âBecause no such evidence exists, however, they could not charge him with any crime related to collusion. Instead, they charged him with his conduct during their investigation. fact is that if the Special Council had not conducted an absolutely baseless investigation, Mr. Stone would not face a prison term. “
