Roger Stone To Sue Bill Barr And DOJ For Prosecutorial Misconduct, Wants $25 Million From Each
Roger Stone said he will file a lawsuit against the Department of Justice and former Attorney General William Barr and many others for prosecutorial misconduct.
He also said he will personally cross-examine Bill Barr.
“The terms of my pardon allow me to sue the Department of Justice, Robert Mueller, James Comey, John Brennan, Rod Rosenstein, Jonathan Kravis, Aaron ‘Fat Ass’ Zelinsky, Jeanie Rhee, and Michael Morando,” Stone said on Parler.
“My lawyers will be filing formal complaints for prosecutorial misconduct’s with DOJ office of professional responsibility at the same time I file a 25 million dollar lawsuit against the DOJ and each of these individuals personally,” Stone continued.
“In fact, I am going to add Bill Barr to the lawsuit and I will handle his cross-examination personally,” he added.
He is also planning to sue Dem Rep Hakeem Jeffries.
From The New York Post:
Veteran Republican political operative Roger Stone vowed Thursday to file a $25 million defamation suit against US Rep. Hakeem Jeffries for alleging that he covered up misconduct by President Trump in exchange for clemency.
Hours after receiving a presidential pardon for his conviction in special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe, Stone lashed out at the Brooklyn Democrat during an early morning interview on 77 WABC radio.
“Congressman Jeffries put on his Twitter feed some time ago that Roger Stone traded his silence regarding misconduct by the president in return for clemency,” Stone said.
“A, that’s a lie. B, it’s defamatory. And three, Hakeem didn’t say it on the House floor. Consequently, I’m going to be suing Congressman Jeffries for $25 million … So, I hope Mr. Jeffries has some proof to his allegation because I will see his ass in court.”
Stone, who was a Trump adviser during the 2016 presidential race, went on to call Jeffries — a potential successor to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) — “pathetic” and “a hack.”
“And actually, frankly, to be candid, I’ve decided to make an example of Hakeem Jeffries,” Stone told “The Other Side of Midnight” host Frank Morano.
“I talked to an excellent libel attorney today … I will be bringing a case against Hakeem. See you in court, big boy.”
