New evidence details Roger Stone’s efforts against 2020 election: WaPo

New video evidence from a documentary in the making about Roger Stone offers new details about his involvement in efforts to undermine the results of the 2020 presidential election, according to The Washington Post, which reviewed more than 20 hours of film.

Stone, a longtime political adviser to former President Trump, is having a documentary made of him called “A Storm Foretold.” A Danish film crew has followed him around the past two years to produce the film.

Video from the crew shows Stone involved in numerous aspects of the Trump campaign to unwind the election, including knowledge of a plot to oust Justice Department leadership days before it was publicly reported.

In another video, Stone directs an aide to resurrect his Stop the Steal campaign, even as he publicly sought to distance himself from others involved. Another organizer, Ali Alexander, was also subpoenaed by the committee.

Stone likewise asks the aide to recruit retired law enforcement and military personnel for the effort.

But things began to unravel on Jan. 6. The video shows Stone complaining he wasn’t getting VIP treatment as organizers apparently sought to block him from speaking.

However, once the Capitol riot was underway, Stone seemed to change his tune, and also attempted to dodge the filmmakers.

In the video reviewed by the Post, Stone is seen saying the Capitol riot was “really bad” for Trump’s movement and left Washington, D.C., on a private plane on Jan. 6, 2021.
