Roger Stone Floats Theory GOP Establishment Will "Steal" Nomination From Trump, Launches Fundraising Campaign
Blog ››› ››› OLIVER WILLIS
Appearing on conspiracy theorist Alex Jones' radio show, dirty trickster Roger Stone announced the creation of a fund to back supporters of Donald Trump at the Republican National Convention.
Stone is the discredited co-author of The Clintons' War on Women. The book is dedicated to a Holocaust denier who blames a "Jewish plot" for the 9/11 attacks. Stone, a former Nixon operative, created an anti-Hillary Clinton group named "C.U.N.T." during the 2008 election and worked as an advisor for the Trump presidential campaign last year.
During a discussion on Jones' February 26 show, Jones and Stone warned that the Republican Party "establishment" might attempt to deny Trump the nomination at the convention.
Stone told Jones he would "reach out to some of my old associates" in order to "pull together some of the best convention operatives in America today."
"We have set up a fund to pay for their travel, to pay for their hotel rooms, to bring them to Cleveland to avoid the steal." He then promoted the website "StopTheSteal.com" "if you want to make a contribution."
The actual website is StopTheSteal.org, which redirects to a donation page for the Committee to Restore America's Greatness, the super PAC Stone created to defend Trump and attack his competitors. The donation page states: "YES, I want to help stop the Republican establishment from stealing the Presidential nomination from Donald Trump!"
CNN recently announced that Stone had been banned from appearing on its air after a series of racist and sexist tweets of his attacking other media figures were uncovered. Stone also claimed that he had been banned from MSNBC.
