(RepublicanJournal.org) – A liberal media outlet is accusing former Trump associate Roger Stone of plotting to assassinate two Democrat lawmakers. Allegedly, Stone was furious that a House committee was planning to investigate why President Trump had commuted his jail sentence and wanted to intimidate the committee. Stone had denied the accusation, saying the recording was fake.
On January 8, Mediaite reported that it had a recording of Stone talking to his security chief, NYPD cop Sal Greco, in a Florida cafe a few weeks before the 2020 presidential election. The conversation allegedly took place not long after Representative Jerry Nadler (D-NY) had announced that the House Judiciary Committee would investigate Trump’s decision to commute the 40-month prison sentence Stone had been given for interfering with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into the 2016 election. According to the tape, an angry Stone told Greco, “Let’s go find” committee member Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA). “Then we’ll see how brave the rest of them are; “either Swalwell or Nadler has to die before the election.”
This is the second time this month Mediaite has released a recording that seems to show Stone discussing violence with Greco. On January 5, the outlet claimed he had told the cop –- who was fired by the NYPD in 2022 over his links to Stone –- to kidnap prosecutor Aaron Zelinsky, a deputy prosecutor in Mueller’s Russia collusion probe.
Stone allegedly said, “You have to abduct him and punish him.” Stone denies this, claiming the recording is a fake generated by AI. He’s also denying the new allegations; on January 9, he posted on X (formerly Twitter), calling on Mediaite to release the tape if they have one.
Stone has also slammed the reporting as “reckless” and added that if such a tape did exist, it must have been obtained illegally. According to him, Mediaite is “a left-wing rag” that’s often maligned him in the past; he questioned its credibility and asked why anyone would believe these new accusations.
