What’s Roger Stone think of former President Donald Trump’s pending indictment?

While he didn’t pick up his phone when Raw Story rang, the informal – if powerful in ways we’ll never fully know – Trump adviser texted back.

“Here is my comment,” Stone wrote, attaching a black-and-white photo of a “DONALD TRUMP DID NOTHING WRONG!” T-shirt.

Trump and Stone are united in their legal troubles, which lately overlap.

Stone is unabashedly one of the most notorious, morally-dubious and unflinching (even while under court-ordered gag rules) political provocateurs in American political history. Netflix gave him a documentary – “Get Me Roger Stone” – before a Florida judge gave him a three year prison sentence for lying to Congress and threatening a witness, among other Stone-ian charges.

Trump didn’t like the thought of his favorite fixer locked up, so he publicly lashed out at his own Justice Department. That led to an unheard of televised rebuke from the nation’s top lawyer, his own attorney general, William Barr.

Trump wasn’t having that, either. Over protests from Barr and other lawyers, the former president commuted Stone’s sentencemere days before he was slated to head to the slammer.

With no prison sentence to serve, Stone was free to help plan Trump’s “Stop the Steal” rally on Jan. 6, 2021.

The U.S. House’s select Jan. 6 committee viewed Stone – and his posse of Proud Boys – as playing a particularly venomous role in the biggest attack on American democracy since President Richard Nixon put himself above the law.

In Stone’s eyes, Nixon’s mistake was resigning. Perhaps if he had whipped up some “Nixon did nothing wrong!” tees, American politics would have been different decades ago. Just the way Stone seems to like it — embers, ashes and all.
