Roger Stone is Now Saying North Korean Boats Delivered Ballots as Trump Continues Fraud Claims
Trump ally Roger Stone is known for making off-the-wall assertions and bizarre suggestions. One such example includes his calling for the hangings of former FBI Directors James Comey and John Brennan and other notable national security officials if President Donald Trump won the election.
It’s now been nearly a month since Trump failed to do that, and Stone, a former advisor to the president, hasn’t taken the loss particularly well, threatening in late November to wreck the situation for the Georgia senate GOP, saying he’ll use funds from his PAC to do that.
But Wednesday he upped the bizarre another notch, this time claiming without evidence that North Korea somehow interfered in November’s presidential election, Newsweek reports. This accompanies Trump’s continual and baseless claims that voter fraud was prevalent during the election.
That’s a little hilarious when you consider the fact that Stone was given a stiff prison sentence of 40 months for lying to investigators in connection with the Mueller probe into Russian interference during Trump’s 2016 campaign. That sentence wound up being commuted by his buddy Trump in July.
Apparently Stone doesn’t have a good grasp of the definition of irony.
The Electoral College is expected to meet on December 14 and as Democratic President-elect Joe Biden has been projected as the winner, Trump and Stone have turned up their accusations of widespread election fraud. Stone popped up on The Alex Jones Show to tell fellow crackpot Alex Jones he received proof of evidence fraud. And of course, he provided no evidence because he doesn’t have any.
Claiming he has “incontrovertible evidence,” without providing it is a typical move for Stone, who is also another QAnon conspiracy believer. He was in typical form during the interview.
“I just learned of absolute incontrovertible evidence of North Korean boats delivering ballots through a harbor in Maine, the state of Maine,” Stone said. “If this checks out, if law enforcement looked into that and it turned out to be true, it would be proof of foreign involvement in the election.”
Funny how people like Stone never seem to provide the “incontrovertible evidence.” It’s like those folks who claim to see Big Foot or the Loch Ness Monster but either provide no photos or provide ones that are obviously doctored.
Stone also told Jones he prayed daily for Trump to be “strengthened” in his fight against “an epically corrupt deep state that has no problem in what appears to be the cyber-manipulation of the votes of the American people.”
Belief in the so-called “Deep State” is central to the QAnon movement, and during a July interview, Stone praised some of its’ members as “great patriots.” QAnon is a fringe theory whose adherents believe Trump is leading a covert battle against Democrats, and members of the business and entertainment community. The theory purports those involved are involved in satanic worship, human trafficking, and pedophilia.
It would be a smart move for Trump to distance himself from these extremists but he hasn’t. He’s merely continued to complain that the Democrats conspired to steal the election, releasing a 46-minute-long video on his Twitter feed Wednesday that alleged election fraud.
I’m not going to get into the specifics of Trump’s video. It’s not worth bothering with. But Trump and Stone deserve each other, they really do.
