Fixed, filthy trickster, Trump confidante, convicted criminal – Roger Stone is all that. However, given the choice, he would probably call himself a political strategist. What does the man, who was pardoned by Trump in July without serving a day of a two-year prison sentence for lying to Congress and testifying to witness manipulation, do with the campaign strategy for the re-election of Donald Trump?
We’re not admitting it, but you sense that Stone would feel better about the war against Joe Biden and the Democrats if he was right in the middle of it himself. After all, he was up to his neck in the Trump campaign last time, allegedly trying to smear Hillary Clinton.
He claims there was no wrongdoing on his part by “accusing partisan, politically motivated prosecutors” [who] went out and invented crime “. Whatever it is, many believe that the president’s pardon was all about silencing him, knowing all about Trump.
There are some policy advisors who seem too busy to respond to a text message, but Stone, who has listened to five American presidents and relies on Richard Nixon, speaks extensively to the Sunday Independent by phone from his Fort Lauderdale home , Florida.
A quarter of an hour lasts 45 and I keep expecting him to say, “Sorry, I only have time for one more question.” However, he seems to have all the time in the world, especially with regard to Trump’s re-election. Perhaps when he agreed to the interview, he was thinking of Irish-American Catholics with a taste for the old country. Your ballots, he says, “will matter to Trump’s opportunities.”
However, his interest in the Irish dimension of politics appears to be limited to his own country. When asked if there is an Irish politician he admires on this side of the Atlantic, he cannot find a single name.
Of course, he predicts “a disgruntled victory” for the man languishing in the polls and loyally refuses to respond when asked to name the biggest mistake Trump has made in the campaign to date.
However, if pushed, he’s ready to put a finger at the strategists who run the show this time around.
“It seems that the Trump campaign made the mistake of not hoarding its financial resources for mass communications – television, radio and digital advertising – to the end. You seem to have wasted too many resources too early in the campaign. ”
That was “especially strange, since he was never really seriously against his renomination”.
“That’s why Biden is buying him four for one on network television today.
“He’s getting busted six for one on cable TV. He is not present in Spanish, on city radio, on Christian radio or on gospel radio. All of this is crucial in the swing states. ”
In September, Stone made allegations of Democratic electoral fraud, saying Trump should impose martial law if he loses.
He advocated the arrests of Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, Apple’s Tim Cook, Bill and Hillary Clinton, and “anyone else who can be shown to be involved in illegal activities.”
He seems to have calmed down a bit since then, because when I ask what will happen if Trump loses, he quotes the president as saying that there will be “a peaceful transfer of power” if Trump’s defeat is “fair and fair”.
But then he talks vividly about his great hero Nixon (whose face is tattooed on his back), who ended up strongly against JFK in 1960, only to have the election “stolen from him by election fraud.”
Many believe Trump needs a Biden landslide to avoid crying badly, and Stone warns that “if there is substantial and serious evidence of election fraud, he has the option to challenge the result in court.”
“Both he and I are against violence. We are americans. We don’t solve things through violence.
“Unfortunately, Black Lives Matter and Antifa don’t share our view,” he says.
Could he see civil war break out in America after the election?
“One thing I’ve learned in politics is never to answer a hypothetical question,” he says.
However, he’s more than happy to get another shot at Zuckerberg and the Twitter bosses, whom he accuses of “suppressing” a harmful story about Biden’s son Hunter.
“It’s not about whether what you’re doing is against the law, it’s clearly against the law. And I hope the Justice Department of Trump [will] do something about it. ”
Back to Trump and Stone’s boundless admiration for his 40-year-old friend.
He says the 74-year-old has “enormous physical stamina”, only needs five hours of sleep a night, but that he is “incredibly stubborn – he will not be put off no matter what.”
In language that has not compromised his chances of getting votes from the evangelical movement, Trump recently described his recovery from Covid-19 as a “blessing from God”. When Stone went to prison last year, he said he had “put me in the hands of the Lord.”
There are, he says, “a lot of snotty elites in this country who accept my creed with a giggle or scorn, but I don’t care what they think. It is only important to me what he thinks. ”
When I ask if he was ever really afraid of being locked up, he says, “It was me until I decided to reaffirm my faith in Jesus Christ and confess my sins. From that moment on I knew that God would save me my persecutor. ”
Although, as it turned out, Trump got there first.
