Roger Stone


I haven’t been able to make myself watch the HBO film on Roger Stone, but I did listen to part of a program on Fresh Air about Stone, which was depressing enough.  Stone, evidently, has been planning Trump’s run for the presidency since at least 1997.

Fresh Air.  “Following the Man who Created President Trump.”  July 13, 2017.  HBO.  “Get Me Roger Stone.”

One of the Things I’m Thinking About Tonight.

  •  Trump is signaling that if Mueller goes into his (Trump’s) finances, Mueller will be exceeding his mandate as Special Counsel (which Trump spells as Council).  This means that the Trump Administration is going to claim that Mueller should be fired for going outside his mandate.  The right-wing media has evidently been backing him up on this line of argument.
