Like bread crumbs can lead a bird to its doom, Roger Stone's own publicly accessible comments may be his undoing. Stone, an adviser to Trump, has said repeatedly he was not in contact with anyone in Russia during the campaign except
one Guccifer 2.0, a person U.S. intelligence believes is a front for the Russian intelligence agency, nor had any communications with Julian Assange.
Stone's repeated denials of contacts with Russia and Assange are under renewed scrutiny because his own words betray him. For months during the campaign Stone bragged to various Republican officials and news outlets he was in fact, talking to Russia and Assange.
The timeline is long, stretching back to at least August, but the evidence is both overwhelming and damning. In short, Stone is trying to mimic the con artist by denying his own words, but his ego will bring him down just as surely as his name implies.
