Stone was arrested January 25th and was indicted by a federal grand jury in the District of Columbia on seven counts, including one count of obstruction of an official proceeding, five counts of false statements, and one count of witness tampering.
He has plead not guilty to all charges.
A Stone That Won’t Roll
Along with insisting he is innocent of all charges, Stone has consistently pledged that he will never give testimony against Trump, and no matter your opinion of the man, his history would seem to indicate that he’s someone who remains loyal, even when those he’s given his loyalty to are proven to be criminals.
“If Nixon could be destroyed, Stone seemed to believe, then the system was corrupt, a rigged game, just another opportunity to exploit—with dirty tricks, dishonest ads, phony history books, whatever. By the time Trump came calling, Roger Stone was ready.”https://t.co/OC9VdiXSF0

Stone’s big break in politics was working in the administration of President Richard Nixon and to this day, he remains loyal to Nixon, the only person ever forced to resign the Presidency or face criminal charges stemming from the Watergate scandal of 1972.

He even has Nixon’s face tattooed on his back. Now that’s loyalty.
If Stone Turns, Who Knows What Lies Ahead?
When Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen was first indicted, he also initially maintained a cocky exterior and was offered Trump’s full support.
The New York Times and a third rate reporter named Maggie Haberman, known as a Crooked H flunkie who I don’t speak to and have nothing to do with, are going out of their way to destroy Michael Cohen and his relationship with me in the hope that he will “flip.” They use….

As the gravitas of what he was facing in terms of prison time began to weigh on him, Cohen started singing like a canary, and Trump attacked.
If anyone is looking for a good lawyer, I would strongly suggest that you don’t retain the services of Michael Cohen!

So far, Stone has maintained his loyalty to Trump, and that’s seen Trump offer back nothing but praise.
“I will never testify against Trump.” This statement was recently made by Roger Stone, essentially stating that he will not be forced by a rogue and out of control prosecutor to make up lies and stories about “President Trump.” Nice to know that some people still have “guts!”

What if Stone breaks and starts spilling the beans? Some people very close to the situation think that could be an endgame for the Trump Presidency.

Speculation is that no one knows more about the goings on behind the scenes during the 2016 Trump Presidential campaign than Stone. As the old metaphor goes, he knows where all the bodies are buried.
If that is indeed the case, Trump can ill-afford to incur his wrath.

The two remain cozy. Trump needs to keep it that way, because as nasty as Trump gets when he goes into attack mode, Stone wrote the book on dirty tricks.
He may be the one person not named Vladimir Putin who’ll get the kid gloves treatment from Trump.
