    Trump BFF Roger Stone threatened DEM CONGR'MAN, delaying his testimony

    Roger Stone’s Testimony in House Russia Probe Delayed After Radio Tirade

    By Billy House
    July 14, 2017, 1:16 PM EDT - Bloomberg


    • Former Trump campaign adviser Stone was to testify July 24
    • Stone had called Democrat on panel a ‘yellow-bellied coward
    • Trump Ally Roger Stone Anxious to Testify in Russia Probe




    The House Intelligence Committee has postponed the scheduled July 24 closed-door testimony of former Donald Trump campaign adviser Roger Stone in its probe of Russian meddling in the presidential election, Stone’s lawyer said Friday.

    The lawyer, Grant Smith, said his client was notified by the committee late Thursday that his testimony would be delayed until after Congress’s August recess because the panel wasn’t ready.

    Stone hurled insults at two Democratic members of the intelligence panel -- threatening to sue one and calling another a "yellow-bellied coward" -- during an appearance aired Thursday on Buffalo, New York-area radio station WBEN. Also on the program was former Trump campaign communications adviser Michael Caputo, who is scheduled to testify before the House panel Friday afternoon.

    The Republican leading the House committee’s probe, Mike Conaway of Texas, wouldn’t tell reporters Friday whether the committee has delayed Stone’s testimony. The panel’s investigation has been marred by partisan infighting, and members have struggled to agree even on the mission and scope.

    ‘Taking It on the Chin’

    Stone is upset at the postponement, Smith said in an interview, because he wants to appear before the committee and believes he has "been taking it on the chin" in terms of innuendo and false claims.

    Caputo and Stone have denied involvement or knowledge of any collusion between the Trump campaign and Russians.

    During Thursday’s broadcast, Stone predicted that “most committee Democrats wouldn’t attend his and Caputo’s closed-door appearances before the panel. He contended that one Democrat on the committee, Jackie Speier of California, had said he was on the Kremlin payroll.

    Me thinks Stone is doing what Trump is doing. He is deflecting his guilt onto others. He is trying to paint the committee as being biased already when the committee is being head by a Republican. At this point, after Don Jr's email chain, the committee is in a better position to ask Roger Stone very specific questions. This makes Stone less likely to be able to dance his way out of answering directly. Stones plan was to side step answering anything directly and misdirecting the committee. He is, after all, a student of the last corrupt president=Richard Nixon is his hero=Stone has a giant tattoo of Nixon on his back=No kidding.

    Look forward to more of this. It's Stone's MO. Thank you, Roy Cohn.

    Trump's crew loves threatening people. His two lawyers and Stone.

    The difference in Trump and Putin is that Putin doesn't have the courts to keep him in check. Putin can whack an opponent with no real investigation.




    Even his wife said...you hit him...he'll whack you 10 times harder.
