Trump Pardons Roger Stone and Why Stone Deserved to Be Pardoned

Roger Stone

President Donald Trump pardoned Roger Stone today along with several others.  While there will be some who will object to it and call it political, I will take a moment to explain why I think it was right for Trump to pardon Stone

He did not get a fair trial. In fact, it was one of the worst travesties in the history of federal criminal trials.

I wrote the following just prior to Stone’s pardon and thought it would be worth publishing in the event the pardon was a little slow in coming.


Even before the Gestapo-style FBI raid on his home in 2019, the Frank Report has reported in-depth about the effort by Special Counsel Robert Mueller to use essentially fabricated criminal charges against long-time Trump confidant, Roger Stone, in order to pressure Stone into testifying against Trump –  which would have helped create a viable Article of Impeachment.

I am well aware that some readers don’t like Stone, but we are forced to follow facts based on our own investigative reporting and are not motivated by any ideological fervor.

Most likely you missed the most recent disclosures by the U.S. Department of Justice – which exposed the fact that Stone was the victim of a malicious political prosecution by Robert Mueller and his Ivy league hitmen. The release was carefully timed to ensure that it got almost no press coverage.

Despite a multi-year multimillion-dollar intensive investigation of Stone, Mueller’s gumshoes did not find the WikiLeaks connection or receipt and dissemination of emails that they kept insisting existed. At that point, rabid, former Hillary Clinton Lawyer, Arron Zelinsky, browbeat a young Trump campaign employee, in an attempt to get the man to wear a wire and seek a meeting with Stone in Miami.

As the world now knows, Stone was subjected to a Soviet-style show trial in which left-wing Obama appointee, Judge Amy Berman Jackson, prohibited Stone’s lawyers from making any powerful arguments, including denying them the right to offer evidence to disprove that the Russians hacked the DNC, the underlying premise of Stone’s indictment and which takes up the first 440 words of that document, written by Andrew Weissmann, Mueller’s least ethical prosecutor.

Justice Department prosecutor Andrew Weissmann. He did everything to convict Stone but remember to seek justice.

Incredibly, Judge Berman Jackson also granted a motion from federal prosecutors prohibiting Stone from raising the misconduct of the Special Counsel’s office, the FBI, the Department of Justice, or any Member of Congress in his defense.

It is not unreasonable to ask why the Government sought to bar evidence of misconduct on their part if there was no misconduct to hide.  Berman Jackson’s ruling is patently unconstitutional. Under Kyle’s v Whitely, “Prosecutorial integrity is always at issue, never off the table.”

Kangaroo Jury

Even more surprising – and indicative of the absence of even the faintest pretense of a fair trial – was the fact that Stone’s jury forewoman, a Democrat activist and lawyer, Tomeka Hart, published both Twitter and Facebook posts attacking Stone, commenting on his case, as well as repeatedly attacking President Trump and his supporters.

Hart hid the posts behind a privacy setting during the jury selection and the trial – and deleted them immediately after the trial.

It would be hard to find a juror more biased against Roger Stone, or better able to deceptively hide it, than Tomeka Hart, the forewoman on the jury that convicted him.

The makeup of the jury included no Republicans, no Trump supporters, no military veterans, no Catholics, no Black men.

To help pack the jury with people hostile or unsympathetic to Stone, Judge Berman Jackson ruled that political activism in the Democrat Party, support or contributions to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, service in the Obama or Clinton administrations as a political appointee, or relationships with individuals in the current Justice Department in the FBI, could not be grounds for dismissing a prospective juror.

Get This Man to Prison and Die

Despite all current legal precedents, current law and the specific regulations of the U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S. Bureau of Prisons regarding non-violent convicts and the risks of COVID-19 exposure, and without regard to Stone’s age, [then-67] and history of respiratory illness, Judge Jackson ordered Stone’s immediate incarceration last July, and for him to report to a Coronavirus-infested prison where BOP officials insisted there were no COVID-19 cases among the prison population, but the prison guards’ union exposed over 100 cases the BOP was concealing. Tucker Carlson said it was “a death sentence.”

Judge Amy Berman Jackson

On July 14th, only hours after the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld Jackson’s order to incarcerate Stone (with Bill Barr’s Justice Department taking no position when Jackson ruled that Stone go to prison, but supported his immediate incarceration when Stone appealed his prison surrender date), President Donald Trump commuted Stone’s sentence because Stone “did not receive a fair trial.”

Now, Mueller’s dirtiest cop, Andrew Weissmann, is demanding that the Biden Justice Department charge Stone, despite the fact that the Mueller Report written by Weismann has conceded that no evidence of a crime by Stone could be found. Former U.S. Solicitor of the Obama-administration, Neal Katyal, has called for Stone’s prosecution for destroying evidence when there is no existing evidence that Stone destroyed anything relevant to his case.

Much has transpired since the President commuted Roger Stone’s sentence.  You certainly cannot rely on the news media to tell you how much we have learned about the prosecutorial misconduct and other irregularities in Stone’s trial in the District of Columbia.

Who Leaked the FBI Raid on Stone’s Home?

Many Americans remember the predawn raid on Roger Stone’s home in which 29 heavily-armed agents stormed his house. And many people are aware that CNN showed up 14 minutes before the FBI to video Stone’s arrest and the harassment of Stone’s wife, Nydia Stone.

We now believe we have a powerful lead on who is responsible for this illegal leak. Stone was arrested at 7:05 A.M.  One hour earlier, at 6:05 A.M., CNN correspondent, Sarah Murray emailed Stone’s attorney, Grant Smith, a draft copy of Stone’s indictment. The document received had no timestamp or court markings on it. However, according to at least one source, its metadata tags show the initials of Andrew Weissmann!

The indictment document wasn’t sealed until 5:30 A.M. in Washington D.C. CNN’s claim that they got the document from the Special Counsel’s website was disproved by the fact that the Special Counsel did not post Stone’s indictment until it was unsealed. Leaking the government’s intention to issue an arrest or search warrant is a felony. CNN’s claims that their presence at Stone’s residence just prior to Stone’s arrest was based on a “journalistic hunch” and “a little luck on the timing,” is “bullshit.”

As President Donald Trump bellowed, “Who tipped CNN?”


It’s always helpful for a news outlet to find out from the DOJ about predawn raids in advance. Even though it is a felony to leak such information, since it is possible that someone could tip off the subject of the raid, the risk is offset by the importance of capturing the FBI gloriously arriving on the scene. In this case, some 29 agents are seen bravely arresting 67-year-old Roger Stone, a defendant without a criminal record who was accused of a non-violent crime. We have CNN and someone at the DOJ who leaked the info to them to thank for this wonderful spectacle of the arrest of a man known to be a friend of Donald Trump.

This serious felony – the leaking of an impending search and arrest – needs to be investigated vigorously by law enforcement. If it is Weissman, even though he may be assumed to be above the law, and quite possibly is, an arrest should be made, despite his political connections.

Why the Investigation Into Stone Had Nothing to Do With Russia

Some are more equal than others; If Rod Rosenstein lied to Congress, shouldn’t he also have been prosecuted?

We also learned through Rod Rosenstein’s testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee that Mueller’s investigation into Stone did not begin until September 2017, two months after Mueller concluded that there was no Russian “collusion” with the Trump campaign.

Interestingly, Rosenstein seems to have lied to the Committee under oath when he said he did not approve the investigation into Stone’s affairs, as the document authorizing that investigation is signed by Rosenstein.

Strangely, Rosenstein has not been prosecuted for lying to Congress. Even though Rosenstein may be assumed to be above the law, a thorough investigation should be made to determine if he committed the same crime Stone was convicted of – lying to Congress. Then it can be explained how members of the deep state are more equal than others.

Steve Bannon was under investigation when the Stone trial was underway, but the DOJ neglected to disclose this to Stone’s attorneys.

Bannon’s Contradictory Testimony

When Steve Bannon’s testimony before the House Intelligence Committee was declassified, we learned that his sworn testimony before the House Committee specifically contradicts his sworn testimony at Stone’s trial.

In fact, GW University’s Professor, Jonathan Turley, told the New York Post, “There does appear a glaring and irreconcilable conflict in what Bannon stated in testimony before Congress and the court. What is striking is that this was not a peripheral point but one of the main areas of inquiry…. he has two diametrically opposite sworn statements in a high-profile controversy with dozens of attorneys in attendance.”

It seems prosecutors must have actively suborned perjury. This may be easy to prove with an investigation since there is little doubt that prosecutors were familiar with Bannon’s House Committee testimony.  Yet, they elicited from Bannon an entirely contradictory testimony at Stone’s trial. At a minimum, this is prosecutorial misconduct. It should warrant a criminal investigation.

Prosecutors Violate Roger Stone’s Brady Rights

Certainly, prosecutors had a legal obligation to inform Stone’s lawyers that Bannon was under federal investigation during the time he was testifying against Stone. Their failure to do so was a violation of Stone’s Brady Rights. Stone’s lawyers could have used this information to impeach Bannon on the stand.

Shocking – Buzzfeed Said Roger Stone Was “Vindicated”

At midnight on election day, November 3rd, 2020, the U.S. Department of Justice released the last remaining unredacted sections of the Mueller report regarding Stone, admitting that the Special Counsel had no evidence whatsoever of collaboration or coordination between Stone and WikiLeaks, the Russians and the Trump Campaign.

While the Government’s chief witness, former left-wing radio talk show host and comic impressionist, Randy Credico, denied on the stand that he was Roger Stone’s source regarding the coming significance of the WikiLeaks disclosures regarding Hillary Clinton, Credico confirmed in an interview with this writer in 2018, that he was, indeed, the “confirming source” of what little information Stone had that wasn’t already in the public domain.

Randy Credico, the chief witness against Roger Stone, admitted to this writer that he was the source for Roger Stone.

Although Stone was charged with witness tampering because it is alleged that he threatened to steal Credico’s dog, this writer interviewed David Lugo, a filmmaker introduced to Stone by Credico. Lugo claims that Credico threatened in writing to “put a hole in your head” if Lugo dared contradict Credico’s fabricated testimony before the Grand Jury.

It begs the question: If Stone was charged, why wasn’t Credico also charged with witness tampering?  Mueller’s “Dirty Cops” ignored what would be Credico’s more serious and life-threatening criminal behavior.

Was it because Credico was a witness against Stone?

While I personally believe both men, Stone and Credico, were merely joking –  they are both given to a kind of deadpan humor and mimicking of tough guys, Stone only threatened to steal a dog, and knowing Stone’s kindness to animals, he would have taken very good care of the little animals, while Credico threatened to make Lugo’s brain entirely unusable.

Credico told this writer that he never once thought Stone was trying to tamper with him, or that Stone was even remotely serious about stealing his dog.

The prosecutors also concluded that even if they had found such evidence of Stone’s actions, it would have been perfectly legal under the First Amendment – which means that he could not have been prosecuted for them.

However, Judge Amy Berman Jackson withheld this information from Stone’s lawyers because it could destroy the legal premises for the bogus charges brought against him – while the Washington Post, New York Times, CNN, MSNBC, NBC, Wall Street Journal, and many others publicly accused Stone of collusion with WikiLeaks, which they claimed was the same as collusion with the Russians.

When the Mueller report proved that this was false, only BuzzFeed, the Washington Examiner and Zero-Hedge reported that Roger Stone had been “vindicated” as BuzzFeed reported it.

Dirty Cops

It is an article of faith among radical leftists that attorney General William Barr interfered with Roger Stone’s sentencing and pressured the four highly partisan prosecutors handling Stone’s case to “go easy on Trump’s friend of forty years.” Barr has denied this under oath before the House Judiciary Committee.

Fox accurately reported that the prosecutors in Stone’s case used several novel “enhancements” to recommend a 7-9-year sentence,” surprising senior officials at DOJ who had expected a sentencing recommendation more in line with federal sentencing guidelines.

Four prosecutors within the Justice Department sent a supplemental sentencing recommendation to Judge Jackson. While Barr’s DOJ never withdrew the 7-9-year recommendation, they also made a case for a lesser sentence, without the questionable enhancements cobbled onto Stone’s sentence by Mueller’s henchmen, but pointing out that Judge Berman Jackson had full discretion to sentence Stone with any term she decided on.

Judge Amy Berman Jackson, who made her disdain for Stone apparent in each phase of his trial, rejected the 7-9-year sentence recommendation; sentencing Stone to 40 months in prison.  Now comes proof that the claim that the original Stone prosecutors were subjected to political pressure for leniency and sentencing has been exposed as a canard.

The Washington Post reported that three senior non-political career Department of Justice officials specifically deny the false claim by ex-Stone-Prosecutor, Aaron Zelinksy, in his sworn testimony before the House Judiciary Committee – that he had been subjected to political pressure regarding Stone’s sentence. If they are telling the truth, isn’t Zelinsky guilty of “Lying to Congress?”

Why Stone Dropped His Appeal

Roger Stone

Stone only reluctantly dropped the appeal of his conviction.

After the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals refused to dismiss the corrupt indictment of General Michael Flynn, ruled that White House Legal Counsel Don McGahn did have to testify to Congress regarding his privileged conversations regarding the President, and ruled that Hillary Clinton did not have to testify about her illegal mail server, it became apparent to Stone that the D.C. Circuit Court had become so politicized that no Republican or Trump supporter could expect a fair decision.

Even if Stone had been able to obtain a new trial, it would have been presided over by Judge Amy Berman Jackson, who not only showed extreme bias throughout the trial but willfully withheld exculpatory evidence from the redacted Mueller Report from Stone’s attorneys at trial.

A Pardon for Stone

While Stone has had no public comment regarding his prospects for a presidential pardon, he did say in his Parler feed that he was “Praying for a Pardon, so that I can put this entire horrific Witch-hunt behind me.”

I believe that anyone who objectively reviews the facts regarding Roger Stone’s takedown will conclude that he richly deserves the pardon he is praying for.

  • Acceptance of a pardon is also an admission of guilt. Can’t argue about whether or not it all went down the right way. He’s in some good company there. I mean lying to Congress and threatening to take some dude’s dog? Hell, he may as well have got his money’s worth and emptied the clip of an M-4 into a crowd of people waiting for gas. Has the face of the man who willingly prolonged the loss of American life in what most now consider to be an unjust and unwinnable literally on his back. Someone wrote here “chilling and shocking to read what apparently went down”…..and “happy his prayers were answered”. Just, wow. Then again, I guess people just want to be vessels waiting to be filled with abject wisdom. At least it will be interesting when the subpoenas come.

    • Acceptance of a Pardon is not an admission of guilt. When there are career prosecutors throwing lawfare at him in every which direction to character assassinate a sitting president and legitimize the HPSCI perjury trap/hypocrisy they laid out to form an impeachment narrative. Didn’t Swalwell sleep with a damn Chinese Spy??? and MSNBC, and CNN were interviewing Swalwell right after Stone testified… Doesn’t discussing the testimony publicly break house rules anyway, the very thing Stone was gagged by the judge to prevent from happening (Which also silenced him from exposing their now obvious fraud)?

      Stone had his house raided with a gestapo style show of force that caused so many media conglomerates to bandwagon on accepting Stones guilt, simply because there was a warrant? (For a search that literally happened to find nothing as far as the unredacted Muller Report shows.) Remember… the report that literally was the “legal” basis for impeaching the President, that we now know was objectively a hodgepodge of hearsay that misinformed senators and got FBI directors fired? A Pardon was the only legitimate way to give Stone his rights back after the Justice system and Not-So-Free (Pro Censorship) Free Press became a political weapon.

  • Our advertising revenue is increasing and new advertisers are asking to come on board. I am not going to allow a few trolls to ruin that opportunity. Thanks for understanding.

    So here are 10 rules for commenting [borrowed from the publications shown above]. Some might be redundant:

    Make articulate, well-informed remarks that are relevant to the article.
    Comments should be civil and avoid name-calling.
    No personal attacks, vulgarity, profanity, impersonations, incoherence, and SHOUTING
    Strong opinions and criticisms of our work are acceptable. However, personal attacks against the staff will not be permitted, and any criticism should relate to the article in question.
    Hateful speech, prejudice, persistent trolling, and mindless abuse will not be tolerated.
    Respect others’ values, beliefs, and emotions.
    Refrain from posting offensive, obscene, threatening, or abusive comments.
    Do not post anything racially or ethnically objectionable, or otherwise illegal.
    We don’t allow comments that degrade others on the basis of gender, race, class, ethnicity, political beliefs, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, disability, or other classifications.
    Trolls who violate these rules may be banned.
    I know this is going to make anonymous and cowardly trolls unhappy. So much for the rules of commenting. [redacted]

    • That’s totally fine. It’s like reading the rules at work. Be fair, outspoken, all without offending others.

    • “We don’t allow comments that degrade others on the basis of gender, race, class, ethnicity, political beliefs, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, disability, or other classifications”.

      Party pooper.

    • So, I guess these rules start now, but were not in effect when the following comment was posted:

      [Feminism started it. These weak little liberal cunts are biologically the enemy. Literally. This is why they behave how they do. This is why whites let everyone and everything wipe their feet on them. If they can get you to worship injecting kids with tranny hormones, they can get you to believe anything.]

      Well, okay…

  • I hope Roger is enjoying his Christmas gift from The Donald.

    I’m sure he realizes that he will now have to testify and participate in depositions in any future legal proceedings. Also, from what I understand, he won’t be able to take the Fifth in certain situations. We all know how much Roger loves depositions.

    Is anyone surprised that Donald pardoned Stone, Manafort, and Kushner? All of which are such fine, upstanding guys…LOL!

    Merry Christmas, Roger.

    • Thanks, Flowers, for pointing out this little mentioned fact: By accepting pardons these convicted felons can no longer refuse to tell the truth about Mr. Trump in future investigations or trials.

      Mr. (ex-POTUS) Trump may have been, as Shakespeare wrote, “hoisted on his own petard.”

  • Wow. This hurt to read. In that way it hurt Allison Mack to question why she loves art (I just can’t quit that scene from the volleyball court).

    Truly chilling and sickening to read what apparently went down.

    I’m happy Roger’s prayer was answered. And this is coming from someone (me) whose family is of mixed political leanings, so it’s not about that.

  • “While Stone has had no public comment regarding his prospects for a presidential pardon, he did say in his Parler feed that he was “Praying for a Pardon, so that I can put this entire horrific Witch-hunt behind me.”” Isn’t Parler a public comment, or are you slicing and dicing the difference between what Stone thought his chances were for a pardon and what he was praying for?

  • Roger Stone is the James Joyce of politics. If he didn’t exist we’d all be worse off. The veracity of what he says is far less important than the fact that he says it. He is the oblique, the dissenting voice; the black sheep.

    Come on over Roger – I’ll cook you dinner.

    There might be fisticuffs, but we’ll laugh…

      • James Augustine Aloysius Joyce will soon be forgotten? Unlikely pal, given the money the Joycean industry generates, not to mention his academic canonization, the dedication of a national day, and the attribution of his word ‘quark’ to a little discovery in the field of quantum physics. It’s a bold claim though, I’d love to know how you know…

  • Will never know if Roger Stone is innocent or guilty because he was never given a fair trial.

    The cinematic FBI raid was a part of a smear campaign.

    The 2nd reason for the FBI raid was to intimidate anyone from coming forward or helping Roger Stone.

    The FBI raid could have been conducted during daylight hours like the FBI did for the pedophile Jared of Subway™️ restaurants fame.

    Roger Stone was treated worse the a pedophile. Tell me that’s not fucked up.

  • This is a despicable, hyperpartisan, mis-reading of the events. While I know you won’t have the courage to approve this comment, I’m astonished to read this here. People were convicted following the Mueller Report in perfectly usual public trials that conformed perfectly to precedent. You may not like the outcome, Frank, because your political sympathies lie with Donald Trump and the criminals he has surrounded himself with, but it emphatically does not give you license to criticize the American legal system as ‘Soviet.’ It’s one of the most impartial and functional systems in the world.

    Roger Stone is a criminal, and this is, absolutely, the last time I’m visiting this website. I came here to read about Keith Raniere, not to read this counter-factual, parallel universe defense of criminals.

      • Since Neil has left Frank Report and his feelings can’t be hurt I see no reason not to publish the above comment.

        • These soy boys are all feelings and hormones. They may be more so than actual females. Did you know in western countries, testosterone has been going down 1% a year for decades?

          Feminism started it. These weak little liberal cunts are biologically the enemy. Literally. This is why they behave how they do. This is why whites let everyone and everything wipe their feet on them. If they can get you to worship injecting kids with tranny hormones, they can get you to believe anything.

          Neil, is a little prick, with raisins for testicles. And if he does pass on his weak genes, his kids will be vermin too.


          • Well, Neil, has vamoosed. He said my Roger Stone article was just too much for him and he would never read the site again. So I see no need to protect Neil from your observations.

            Of course, if I did not think they were spot on, I might dissent but in this case, you have Neil pegged.

            Is there any cure, for a soyboy cuk boy?

        • “you have Neil pegged”.

          Pegging is the act of allowing a woman with a strap-on, to violate your anus. I certainly have not pegged Neil.

          “Is there any cure, for a soyboy cuk boy?”

          Yes. Make them fight in gladiatorial combat with live weapons, to the death. Only the strongest will survive. Making them fight for their lives may cause a spike in their testosterone levels. If they refuse to fight, or they look like [redacted] doing it, then they shall be fed to lions. The crowd will marvel with orgasmic delight and I shall have my revenge.

    • Neil I was going to wish you a merry Christmas. Now I’ll never have the opportunity.

      Just like the song Closer, by Nine Inch Nails which Johnny Cash song, “Everyone goes away in the end. My sweetest friend.”

      How dare Frank do an op/Ed on a friend!
      I am kidding!

      They’ve been friends for decades from what I understand. We all know it. It’s not like Frank is performing some kind of Machiavellian ruse. One article about a dear friend does not sully all of Frank’s work and published articles.

      Neil I understand your point, but your over reacting.

      Frank isn’t trying to rewrite history like the New York Times’ nonobjective and historically inaccurate 1681 mission.

      BTW: I believe 1681 is an important date. It does not mean though the rest of history gets rewritten. Through one woman’s lens.

      Did you stop reading the NYTimes Neal?
      Despite the 1681 NY Times stance I still occasionally read it.

      Tutt-tut Neal! Tutt-tut!

      • I agree with this from the NYTimes:
        “The statement announcing the latest raft of presidential pardons bristled with President Trump’s own deep-seated grievances. His friend and longtime adviser Roger J. Stone Jr., the statement said, “was treated very unfairly” by prosecutors. His former campaign chairman Paul Manafort “is one of the most prominent victims of what has been revealed to be perhaps the greatest witch hunt in American history.”

        In complaining about “prosecutorial misconduct,” though, Mr. Trump seemed to be talking as much about himself as his allies. In the flurry of 49 pardons and commutations issued this week, he granted clemency to a host of convicted liars, crooked politicians and child-killing war criminals, but the through line was a president who considers himself a victim of law enforcement and was using his power to strike back.

        Never mind that Mr. Trump presents himself as a champion of “law and order.” He has been at war with the criminal justice system, at least when it has come to himself and his friends. And so in these final days in office, he is using the one all-but-absolute power vested in the presidency to rewrite the reality of his tenure by trying to discredit investigations into him and his compatriots.”

  • “Justice Department prosecutor Andrew Weissmann. He did everything to convict Stone but remember to seek justice.”

    In it, that statement includes everything. The nastiness of the country’s judiciary, the abuse of positions, power, the fabricated accusations. Justice as a criminal organization. Legally, without consequences, pressure groups and lobbies, serving political forces. It’s comforting to me that Stone has been pardoned.

    As described, Stone’s grace is like sour grapes. Instead of mercy, he should have been given a fair opportunity to defend, but he became a derided man. The system enjoyed his right to presumption of innocence and to prove it. It’s a great sin and an outrage.

  • The Marxist controlled Democrats intend to destroy every last Republican and convert America into a one party dictatorship like in Communist China.

    Lin Wood: “The Chinese Communist Party Has Infiltrated This Country”

    Unhinged Democrat Admits To Hannity: “We Don’t Want to Unite with You, We Want to Destroy Every Last One of You”

    Biden Campaign Manager Calls For Unity — Then Calls Republicans “A Bunch of F***ers”

    • Of course Mr Stone pardoned himself. He has very good manners.

      Honest politicians are a fantasy. Roger does better than most of those hippos, with his hair and suits, has kept his figure and is very mischievous. He can make people guffaw when it isn’t supposed to be appropriate. Who doesn’t love that?

      Along with his splendid hair and all of his naughtiness, I think of him as White Mischief. Mis-chief. Having never expected honesty or good will from any politician, I like Roger Stone as a human being. He is like a little boy, a brave one who can also be a pain in the ass but you love him anyhow for being so quick-witted, alongside his sartorial splendors. And that hair!

      Oh the hell with it. Maybe there’s no reasonable reason to like Roger. I just do. Something about him is full of fun.

      That must be what it is. His humor and wit are enjoyable. Even when he ends yp in a pickle. I would like there to be more Rogers and many, many more of the Will Rogers sort as well.

      Okay, Santa? Let’s have more fun. May Roger Stone’s Christmas be unusually merry and bright, along with his lovely wife and family. Keeping him home must be a helluva job. At least consider taking up bowling or maybe bridge. One can still win friends and influence people. The balls are better than anything in politics, too.

      Hopefully Roger likes green tea since he seems to be naturally overly-caffeinated by his life force itself. It would be wise for him to learn to evade kangaroos henceforth. They can be terribly rude.
