Longtime political operative and Donald Trump consigliere, Roger Stone, visited Joe Piscopo on AM 970 THE ANSWER radio show Wednesday to talk Russia.
“Pardon me, I had Vladimir Putin on the other line,” Stone quipped. “Let me get rid of him.”
From there, Stone launched into a spirited denial of claims that he secretly colluded with the Russian government to elect Trump, saying his contacts with the hacker Guccifer 2.0 were limited and “benign.”
“I immediately released the entire contents of our brief Twitter exchange. It’s benign,” said Stone. “This is all BS Joe, there’s nothing there.”
Stone slammed Monday’s House Intelligence Committee hearing saying its ranking Democrat Adam Schiff, had slandered him without giving him a chance to respond.
“They have slimed me. They have slurred me, and blackened my name in prime time,” he said. “This is America, give me a chance to face my accusers. Don’t do it in closed sessions you pussies.”
Piscopo offered a sympathetic ear to Stone throughout the interview, expressing his personal skepticism over the allegations against him. “We’re enjoying the drama of it all,” he said.
