Trump Crony Roger Stone Has Meltdown When it’s Revealed What’s On The Paul Manafort Wiretap

Last night it became known that the Feds had a secret wiretap on Donald Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort’s phone both before and after the election. Even as the public and the media desperately try to figure out who may have been caught on that wiretap, one individual is now confirming that he’s been caught in it – and he’s not taking the news very well.

Former Trump campaign adviser and longtime Trump friend Roger Stone responded to the news in all caps fashion, which typically means a meltdown: “THE FEDS WERE EAVESDROPPING ON MY TELEPHONE CALLS WITH MANAFORT DURING THE INAUGURATION AND TRANSITION.” Stone appeared to be trying to show himself as a victim, which is insane considering that the wiretap on Manafort’s phone was approved by a federal judge and everything was legal. Instead, Stone may have just made it all that much simpler for Special Counsel Robert Mueller to go after him in the Trump-Russia investigation.

Thanks to Stone’s admission, Mueller now knows that Manafort and Stone had multiple phone conversations that need to be investigated. His angry defensive response suggests those conversations were incriminating. Moreover, Mueller now knows when those calls took place, potentially making it easier to zero in them. With every single one of Manafort’s phone calls having been automatically recorded, investigators now have potentially thousands of hours of recordings to go through. This just made it easier for them to locate what they’re looking for. Stone is far from the only Trump team member caught on the wiretap.

Based on the timeframe of the Paul Manafort wiretap, it’s a certainty that Donald Trump himself has been recorded in his phone calls to Manafort before and after the election. Also, as Palmer Report reported last night, Mike Pence is also known to have spoken often with Manafort by phone during the transition.
