Anything to Save the Plan

Selections from the indictment of Roger Stone on charges of perjury, obstruction, and witness tampering. HPSCI is the House intelligence committee. Person 2 is Randy Credico, a former WBAI radio host whose talk show was canceled in November 2017 because of his “internet bullying”. Organization 1 is WikiLeaks.

Stone had testified — lied — that Credico was his connection to Julian Assange, and he was leaning on Credico to back his story. Credico wasn’t agreeing.

On or about October 19, 2017, STONE sent Person 2 an excerpt of his letter to HPSCI that identified Person 2 as his “intermediary” to Organization 1. STONE urged Person 2, if asked by HPSCI, to falsely confirm what STONE had previously testified to, including that it was Person 2 who provided STONE with the basis for STONE’s early August 2016 statements about contact with Organization 1. Person 2 repeatedly told STONE that his testimony was false and told him to correct his testimony to HPSCI. STONE did not do so. STONE then engaged in a prolonged effort to prevent Person 2 from contradicting STONE’s false statements to HPSCI.

In or around November 2017, Person 2 received a request from HPSCI to testify voluntarily before the committee. After being contacted by HPSCI, Person 2 spoke and texted repeatedly with STONE. In these discussions, STONE sought to have Person 2 testify falsely either that Person 2 was the identified intermediary or that Person 2 could not remember what he had told STONE. Alternatively, STONE sought to have Person 2 invoke his Fifth Amendment right against self- incrimination. For example:

On or about November 19, 2017, in a text message to STONE, Person 2 said that his lawyer wanted to see him (Person 2). STONE responded, “‘Stonewall it. Plead the fifth. Anything to save the plan’ . . . Richard Nixon.” On or about November 20, 2017, Person 2 informed HPSCI that he declined HPSCI’s request for a voluntary interview…

On multiple occasions, including on or about December 1, 2017, STONE told Person 2 that Person 2 should do a “Frank Pentangeli” before HPSCI in order to avoid contradicting STONE’s testimony. Frank Pentangeli is a character in the film The Godfather: Part II, which both STONE and Person 2 had discussed, who testifies before a congressional committee and in that testimony claims not to know critical information that he does in fact know…

On or about April 9, 2018, STONE wrote in an email to Person 2, “You are a rat. A stoolie. You backstab your friends-run your mouth my lawyers are dying Rip you to shreds.” STONE also said he would “take that dog away from you,” referring to Person 2’s dog. On or about the same day, STONE wrote to Person 2, “I am so ready. Let’s get it on. Prepare to die [expletive].”…

On or about May 21, 2018, Person 2 wrote in an email to STONE, “You should have just been honest with the house Intel committee . . . you’ve opened yourself up to perjury charges like an idiot.” STONE responded, “You are so full of [expletive]. You got nothing. Keep running your mouth and I’ll file a bar complaint against your friend [the attorney who had the ability to contact the head of Organization 1].”

I guess Stone forgot a few things.
1) Frank had to die in the end (Person 2 probably wasn’t anywhere willing to do that.)
2) The Godfather Part 2 was fiction.
3) Mueller is well known to be one crafty, smart motherfucker and probably let Roger have all the rope he could have before yanking him in so he really didn’t need Person 2’s testimony and any lies uttered by Person 2 would have led to Person 2 being arrested too (which is probably why Person 2 wasn’t willing to go along with Plan Frank Five Angels in the first place.)
4) Ratfuckers get fucked (eventually)

Once upon a time you dressed so fine
You denied the Dems the welfare dime, didn’t you?
People’d call, say, “Beware Rog, you’ll be rat fucked”
You thought they were all kiddin’ you
You used to laugh about
Everybody chanting “Lock Her Up”
Now you don’t talk so loud
Now you don’t want to get into mixups
About being a Russian stooge, agent or heel.

How does it feel
How does it feel
To be without a home
And be completely boned
Like a Roger Stone?

NYTimes sez that a group of Ukranian Hackers did a WikiLeaks of their own on Putin’s files… For some reason alleged Russian Asset Julian declined because he felt that the 175Gb dump had no significance…

@nojo: I signed up to donate $100 a month (gulp) to Elizabeth Warren’s campaign. With her leadership, we can begin to set things right, and she’s our best hope for turning the country around.
