The Republican that Wasn’t – Richard Painter, ethics attorney, calls out Roger Stone.
According to Deutsche Welle, Roger Stone is a ‘long time Trump advisor’ and is the link to collusion between the Trump campaign and Wikileaks. This revelation comes according to Richard Painter, a former Bush White House ethics lawyer who is an outspoken critic of Trump, is affiliated with the far-left leaning Campaign Legal Center, and who ran for the Minnesota Democratic Farmer Labor Party while previously claiming to be a Republican for Bush, before becoming an Independent running as a Democrat – who lost quite soundly. Painter is also a commentator for CNN – the same CNN that had leaked information on the Roger Stone Indictment that was a staged scene worthy of el Chapo.
This is the voice of reason according to Germany’s Deutsche Welle. Where the heck did they get him? Soros.
Painter is also Vice Chair for Citizens For Responsibility and Ethics, CREW, a far-left liberal leaning organization whose Chairman, David Brock, is aligned with various Soros organizations including Media Matters, American Bridge, and American Independent Institute parlays a rabid Anti-Trump Agenda. Building a base by filing complaints against Republican and Conservative organizations, the organization’s main task is to bring down – Trump.
But Deutsche Welle felt this person, Richard Painter, was fair fodder to disclose collusion between Trump and Stone and WikiLeaks and Russia. Ah!
Despite being a 501©(3) prohibited from engaging in partisan or political activities, CREW has managed to far surpass that IRS legal point without even a slap on the wrist.
In the interview with Deutsche Welle, he states that the fact that Mueller indicted Stone is evidence that: “collusion between high-ranking officials in the Trump campaign and WikiLeaks to obtain documents stolen by the Russians in the 2016 election. There is other evidence of course of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians. So this clearly closes the loop and makes clear that the Trump campaign was colluding with the Russians, with WikiLeaks to obtain damaging emails that have been stolen from Hillary Clinton and the DNC.”
From a strictly legal standpoint; a) an indictment is NOT evidence of anything. And b) Mueller has already stated that there is no evidence of collusion between the Trump and Russia. And c) Stone stopped working for the Trump campaign in 2015 with Trump saying he was fired, and Stone saying he quit. The DNC hack occurred in May 2016.
It would appear that by making these statements, Painter, as a lawyer, is putting himself in a position of libel and slander.
Painter continues these bizarre statements by claiming that this also proves that Jared Kushner, Donald Trump Jr, and Trump were all in Trump Tower together “…meeting with the Russians to talk about incriminating dirt on Hillary that they wanted to get.”
For an attorney, Painter is clearly painting himself into a defamation lawsuit potential.
But his statements just plow on.
He highlights the fact that this Indictment is clearly the link for the circle that will bring Trump et al ‘down’ because Manafort was convicted, Gates was convicted and Cohen was convicted. But wait – yes, all of these individuals were convicted – on charges of tax fraud – not Russian collusion. Nyeh – details.
And for his piece-de-resistance, Richard Painter goes to the height of legal deception by stating: “It is very dangerous for the United States, because as the prosecutors move closer and closer to Donald Trump and senior members of his campaign — including his own family — we are very concerned that his irrational behavior is going to increase. And that is a dangerous situation when he is in control of nuclear weapons and has as much power as he does.”
The implication being that Trump will detonate a nuclear catastrophic bomb annihilating the globe should he be impeached. Painter then calls for Trump to resign immediately as he most assuredly faces criminal charges along with his family members.
This interview couldn’t be more impertinent, more false, or more speculative and defaming, and is truly grounds for defamation beyond comprehension! The fact that Deutsche Welle, a government financed taxpayer funded media outlet would have the audacity to publish such drivel is purely a vindictive agenda promulgated by the failing Merkel presidency, and a desperate Soros.
The Indictment itself makes statements that are not proven including; “The DNC – thru Company 1 – publically announced that it had been hacked by Russian government actors.” An announcement – is not evidentiary conclusion. The crux of most of the Indictment is that Stone had communicated with WikiLeaks through an intermediary August 2016, three months after the DNC hack. In addition, Mueller’s Indictment states that WikiLeaks is actually a Russian mole. Unproven. Biased. And most definitely a Hillary take-em-all-down tantrum.
The entire Indictment, this ridiculous interview with Painter, the means with which Stone was served and arrested, the CNN exclusive media crew skulking at Stone’s house to film the verbose episode ALL so REEK of Clinton, it is impossible to come to any other conclusion. The fact that an attorney, Painter, would subject himself to such massive defamation speaks to his legal acumen and without doubt his character.
Not even the most liberal New York Times is biting on this drivel.
