Trump Advisor Roger Stone Claims He Was Poisoned with Radioactive Polonium

On Tuesday, Roger Stone, best known as one of Donald Trump’s advisors, made quite the mammoth claim: That recently, he had been poisoned with polonium, the radioactive agent best known for being used to kill Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko in 2006. Stone made the announcement on Alex Jones’ InfoWars and also tweeted about his alleged diagnosis:

“I became extremely ill. This manifested itself in over 14 days of high fever, delirium, night sweats, I had lesions on my chest and my face,” Stone explained to Jones. “The general consensus is I was poisoned. I was poisoned with polonium or a substance that has the characteristics of polonium and this made me exceedingly ill.” Stone’s theory is that someone poisoned him because he has proof that Russia was not behind the hacks of the Democratic National Committee and John Podesta, “This is about stopping the Trump agenda,” he said. “I would blow the whistle on this whole bogus Russian narrative that they just won’t let go of.”

However, Stone is also pushing that said debunking is central to his new book, “The Making of the President 2016: How Donald Trump Orchestrated a Revolution,” which comes out on January 31st. It’s not clear how, in Stone’s theory, his death would stop the book from debunking Russian hacking allegations, especially since it would likely give the release more publicity.
