Trump went through Stone to obtain emails stolen by Russians

Recommended Posts

(CNN) — Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon said in court on Friday that he and the Trump campaign viewed Roger Stone, a longtime Donald Trump associate, as an access point to WikiLeaks, the organization that leaked stolen emails that were damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign.
Bannon said that during the Trump 2016 campaign, Stone "implied" that WikiLeaks had materials that would help Donald Trump and possibly hurt Hillary Clinton's chance at the presidency. 
With his 40-minute testimony, Bannon became the most high-profile witness to appear at Stone's trial. He made clear in his testimony and to reporters as he left the federal courthouse in Washington, DC, that he was only appearing because he had been compelled to by a subpoena. Bannon's testimony marks the start in the case of federal prosecutors beginning to tie Trump and his campaign to trying to use WikiLeaks to their advantage.
Bannon said he spoke to Stone up to a dozen times in the period of time that he led the Trump campaign, through election day, as well as every few weeks before coming onto the campaign.

This one is more like “confirmation of what we already knew.”

 You know, from the Mueller inquiry.

Oh you mean the Mueller inquiry that exonerated Trump campaign from collusion with the Russians?

You know, that Russian collusion you thought was a bombshell back then?  :lol:

It's not the job of a prosecutor to exonerate anyone.  His job is to find proof of guilt.  He did not find any. Hence, Trump campaign was exonerated in the eyes of the law which is what all that counts.  HTH.

You keep falling for the latest "we got em!" on a daily basis. Heck in fact it seems like it's happening on an hourly basis with you guys.  When you cry wolf so many times no one believes you anymore.

If you had any proof Trump did anything he would be in jail by now. The fact that he isn't and hasn't even been indicted or impeached shows just how little you guys actually have.

That Worms dude is kinda weird. No one can be that dumb. Maybe he is just playing around on this stuff trying to get a thrill? Sounds like a lame hobby if he is, and if he isn't, then there are bigger problems going on. But whatever.

The whole premise of obtaining the emails is hilarious.  Worms, just because Chris Cuomo told you its illegal to look at them,  doesn't make it true. Go ahead and look, see how the DNC focked you in the mouth.  You won't get in trouble,  promise.

He has started trolling more in his frustration at Trump not really being guilty of anything. Misplaced anger which should be directed that MSM and DNC who are perpetuating these charades.

Matt Taibbi is a liberal, but he also sees what happened with the fisa and the abuses of power with the impeachment and knows they are dangerous occurrences setting even more dangerous precidents.
