Embattled political savant Roger Stone is not taking any crap from leftist media.
While being confronted about January 6, the left’s supposed “insurrection” of Washington, D.C., Stone told the reporter simply “f**k you.”
Stone, who has been harassed relentlessly since the rally on January 6, has been subpoenaed to testify in the Select Committee’s investigation, has used his right to plead the fifth.
While walking, The Daily Beast reporter approached Stone, who was wearing a shirt with the message “Roger Stone Did Nothing Wrong,” and attempted to question him:
“Mr. Stone, the AP has reported that you’ve decided to assert your Fifth Amendment rights. Do you have any comments, sir?,” a man filming Stone asked.
“You’re with The Daily Beast?,” Stone followed up.
“Yes sir, I am,” the man confirmed.
“Fuck you,” Stone curtly replied.
“Excuse me, sir?,” the reporter asked.
“Yeah, fuck you,” Stone said, adding “I only talk to legitimate news organizations.”
Stone released a statement on Tuesday through his lawyer, informing the Select Committee of his intent to invoke his Fifth Amendment right and decline to testify.
“In response to the recently served subpoena from the Select Committee, Mr. Stone has directed me to advise you that, as further discussed below, pursuant to the rights afforded him by the Fifth Amendment to the Constitution, he declines to be deposed or produce documents,” Stone told the Committee through his attorney Grant J. Smith.
“Moreover, responding to the extensive requests requires the preparation of a detailed index and log describing the contents of the production, which in and of itself would be protected from disclosure by the U.S. Constitution,” Smith’s letter stated. “Thus given that Mr. Stone has been characterized in the press as under investigation by the DOJ and the FBI, responding to the document demand, which is plainly designed to elicit information about the existence of potentially incriminating evidence, would amount to a testimonial act, defeating the privilege being asserted.”
Stone had previously stated that he was not present at the U.S. Capitol on January 6 and reiterated that while being interviewed by Fox News host Tucker Carlson.
Stone told Carlson during the interview, “I had a feeling. I had an intuition I just did not want to go. I think that God was giving me a signal, I didn’t go,”
“Let me be as clear as I possibly can. Any claim, or assertion, or implication that I either knew about or I was involved in any way in the illegal activities of the Capitol on January 6 is categorically false,” he said, adding “but if you read their subpoena, they’re trying to say that my remarks at two legally permitted rallies the day before are the cause of the break in.”
It’s not surprising that Stone has such a distaste for leftist media outlets, they have constantly harassed him and attempt to defame him at every opportunity.
Roger Stone is a legend in the world of politics, he has worked with Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump, navigating the Washington, D.C. swamp since he was a young college kid.
The Left is simply intimidated by Stone’s knowledge and experience — nothing gets past Mr. Stone, hence the witch-hunt that he now finds himself entangled in.
