Many of the thugs depicted in this series seem to have come straight out of a Klown Kar. For all his flamboyance and hunger for attention, Trump adviser and self-promoting “character” Roger “Guccifer Mane®” Stone isn’t one of them and he isn’t funny.
Stone, who revels in his reputation as a Nixon-era dirty trickster, is now under investigation by the FBI for his role in illegally influencing the outcome of the 2016 election. Stone provides a crucial link between the Trump campaign, Wikileaks and its founder, Julian Assange, and the Russian hacker account known as “Guccifer 2.0, who in 2016 hacked Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta and the Democratic National Committee. A U.S. intelligence assessment has concluded with “high confidence” that the G.R.U., Russia’s military intelligence service, was operating the “Guccifer 2.0” persona, which communicated through Twitter, a WordPress blog, and a series of burner e-mail accounts. The Wikileaks revelations contributed to an air of corruption around Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, and were highly damaging to her candidacy, though no wrongdoing was ever proven.
In the early ‘70s Stone was one of Richard Nixon’s “Dirty Tricksters.” For forty years he's been associated with Republican smear campaigns (like the infamous, racist “Willie Horton ad used against Michael Dukakis in 1988) and outright lies used to destabilize and destroy political opponents. A 30-year Trump associate and like Trump, a protege of notorious McCarthy-era lawyer-thug Roy Cohn, Stone, of course, denied contacts with Wikileaks or “any Russians” throughout the campaign.
But in March 2017, Stone admitted that he HAD established a backchannel with Wikileaks founder Julian Assange to obtain information on Hillary Clinton. Stone also admitted to direct contacts with "Guccifer 2.0.” Roger Stone’s entry in this series can only be a work in progress. As the FBI investigation continues, it will continue to be written. Know your thug.® Congratulations, Roger Stone! You’re a ganksta!™ And this ganksta administration has to go. Please share!
