Stone’s recent posting
captures Stone perfectly from Instagram
. Stone’s warning against anyone “taking him seriously” (in reference to Nunberg) obviously could apply with equal, if not greater, force to Stone.
Stone told Jake Tapper
“There’s every possibility the special counsel is looking at some process-related crime that doesn’t relate to Russia . . . I obviously believe the special counsel has a political bias, as demonstrated by the FBI text messages and emails that have surfaced and the political nature of this investigation, so I think it is very dangerous for the President to do so.”
CNN is reporting
that the President began initial steps to prepare for a possible interview with the special counsel.
I have previously stated that the four categories given to Trump is a good deal
for him — at least the best deal in a bad situation. Mueller is not raising the areas that could pose the greatest dangers for Trump, including Stormy Daniels. If Trump listens to his lawyers and preps for the interview, this is doable. If he refuses, he risks a court fight that he might lose.
As for Stone, he past controversies suggest that a visit at the DMV would be a perjury trap for him. He is one of a long list of questionable associations that have dogged this President and this presidency from Amarosa to Nunberg to Michael Cohen to Steven Bannon to others. Given the tempest created by Stone, the best service he could offer Trump would be to fade away from the national spotlight. That however is a trap that Stone has never been able to avoid.
