Trump Praises Roger Stone’s Refusal To Lie for Mueller

Dec. 4, 2018 (EIRNS)—“ ‘I will never testify against Trump.’ This statement was recently made by Roger Stone, essentially stating that he will not be forced by a rogue and out of control prosecutor to make up lies and stories about President Trump. Nice to know that some people still have guts!” President Donald Trump tweeted yesterday.

As opposed to Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen, who had the chutzpah to ask the judge for no prison time, in return for his singing off Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s script—a plea which constitutional lawyer Jonathan Turley commented “borders on lunacy.” Or as President Trump summarized the import of Cohen’s plea in two Twitter entries yesterday:

“You mean he can do all of the TERRIBLE, unrelated to Trump, things having to do with fraud, big loans, Taxis, etc., and not serve a long prison term? He makes up stories to get a GREAT & ALREADY reduced deal for himself, and get his wife and father-in-law (who has the money?) off Scott Free. He lied for this outcome and should, in my opinion, serve a full and complete sentence.”

In his second tweet, the President wrote:

“Bob Mueller (who is a much different man than people think) and his out of control band of Angry Democrats, don’t want the truth, they only want lies. The truth is very bad for their mission!”
