FBI Documents Reveal Roger Stone Threatened To ‘Bring Down The Entire House Of Cards’ If Prosecutors Came Down On Him

In a stunning series of newly released messages obtained by the FBI between Roger Stone and Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, Stone threatens to ‘bring down the entire house of cards’ if prosecutors aggressively pursued him.

Exactly what Stone was referring to remains somewhat of a mystery, but it does raise serious questions about how much he knows about the potentially illegal and/or unethical activities of America’s ruling class. As The Daily Mail reports:

Weeks after Robert Mueller was appointed special counsel in the Russia investigation, Roger Stone, a confidant of President Donald Trump, reassured WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in a Twitter message that if prosecutors came after him, ‘I will bring down the entire house of cards,’ according to FBI documents made public Tuesday…

The documents – FBI affidavits submitted to obtain search warrants in the criminal investigation into Stone – were released following a court case brought by The Associated Press and other media organizations.

They were made public as Stone, convicted last year in Mueller’s investigation into ties between Russia and the Trump campaign, awaits a date to surrender to a federal prison system that has grappled with outbreaks of the coronavirus…

According to the documents, Assange, who is imprisoned in London and is fighting his extradition to the United States, responded to Stone’s 2017 Twitter message by saying: ‘Between CIA and DoJ they’re doing quite a lot. On the DoJ side that’s coming most strongly from those obsessed with taking down Trump trying to squeeze us into a deal.’
