It’s no secret that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has former Trump associate Roger Stone in his crosshairs.
Stone is Mueller’s last chance to nail down a conviction on collusion and force a Trump loyalist to spill the beans on the President.
And during one interview, Stone revealed whether he plans to sell out President Trump.
Stone appeared on Anderson Cooper’s CNN program to discuss the recent developments surrounding his status.
Mueller has terrorized Stone’s associates over his financial dealings and allegations of collusion with Russia.
Kristin Davis, who worked with Stone for a number of years, but not during the 2016 Presidential campaign, was interviewed by investigators and agreed to appear before Mueller’s grand jury.
Mueller is trying to prove that Stone colluded with the Russians through WikiLeaks—who published emails stolen from Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.
Stone made a number of remarks during the campaign that he was in touch with WikiLeaks’ founder Julian Assange and that Assange was prepared to release damaging information about Clinton.
But Stone has steadfastly denied any allegations of colluding with Russia or WikiLeaks.
“He has yet to prove actual Russian collusion between the Trump campaign or Trump associates or Trump family members with the Russian state. We’ve talked about that before. I know of no evidence of it. I don’t think Mr. Mueller has proven that case yet,” the longtime Trump associate declared.
However, he does predict that Mueller will indict him on unrelated financial crimes to get him to flip on Trump.
“But I’m also mindful of any prosecutor’s ability to squeeze underlings to get them to compose testimony against a bigger fish. I have not been contacted by the special counsel’s office,” Stone stressed. “I made it abundantly clear that there is no circumstances under which I would testify against the president. I would not rule out cooperating if they think I can be helpful in some area, but beyond that, I have not spoken to them.”
Mueller is running out of suspects to charge with conspiring with Russia to rig the election.
Paul Manafort, Michael Flynn, and George Papadopoulos were all charged with process crimes that had nothing to do with the 2016 election.
And every participant in the Trump Tower meeting that Donald Trump, Jr. agreed to has testified that neither the election, Hillary Clinton’s emails, or colluding to defeat the Democrats were ever discussed.
Even moderate Republican Senators like Lindsey Graham and Marco Rubio – who sit on committees investigating the 2016 election – have said they’ve seen no evidence that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia.
If Mueller thought he could squeeze Stone by charging him with financial crimes in hopes that he’d turn on the President—which prosecutors seem to have done with Trump attorney Michael Cohen—he badly misjudged.
Stone made it clear that under no circumstances will he flip on the President.
