Earlier in 2020 President Donald Trump commuted the 40 month prison sentence of convicted felon and adviser for Trump’s 2016 campaign.
We are now hearing a recent interview that shows just how repentant Stone is after his ordeal.
[Spoiler alert: he’s not.]
Stone was charged with witness tampering and obstructing an official proceeding after he lied to Congress about his interaction with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.
Assange’s site published emails that had been stolen by Russian intelligence officials from Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager, John Podesta, during the 2016 election cycle.
When Stone was on trial, he actually posted a photo on Instagram that seemed to be a call to violence against Judge Amy Berman Jackson, who was presiding over his case.
Stone managed to avoid serving time from his sentence of plus-three years in prison when just days before he was set to report, Trump commuted the sentence.
Recently, YouTuber and former popular radio host Bubba The Love Sponge interviewed Stone, 68, about life since his close call with prison. He had the following to say:
“We have a broken system here and if the president is not reelected the system will never be fixed.
And if the president is reelected [Former CIA Director] John Brennan, [Former FBI Director] James Comey, [Former Director of National Intelligence] James Clapper, [FBI Deputy Director] Andrew McCabe, [Former Deputy AG] Rod Rosenstein, these people must be tried and convicted of treason, for which as you know, Bubba, the penalty is capital punishment.
They must be hung by the neck until dead.“
Make sure you catch that last sentence.
Stone is calling for the execution of intelligence officials. And let’s not forget his connections to the Proud Boys, who are a far-right domestic terrorist group now infamous from the first presidential debate this September when Trump refused to condemn them.
Stone formerly hired the Proud Boys to work as private security in 2018 and had members from that group standing with him on the steps of the Miami federal courthouse when he claimed his innocence during his arrest that year. Stone still has a close relationship with the group’s current president, Enrique Tarrio.
People took to Twitter to voice their thoughts on Stone’s shocking call for violence:
Actual fascism, right here in your own backyard. https://t.co/33u7wvXfP4— Ed Bott (@edbott) November 3, 2020
Remember. This is the fool Trump pardoned of 7 felony crimes. Now Stone is treading on treasonous behavior and perhaps seditious talk. This man belongs in jail. https://t.co/XjZG5QOQZ2— Richard Caslon (@CaslonRichard) November 3, 2020
