GOP Strategist Alice Stewart on CNN: ‘If You Look Up Scumbag in the Dictionary’ You’ll See Roger Stone
The way Alice Stewart sees it, Roger Stone is the very picture of a political “scumbag.”
The GOP communications strategist and conservative CNN commentator joined Poppy Harlow and Jim Sciutto on Friday to talk about how Stone has been arrested on charges for obstruction, witness tampering and making false statements to federal investigators. Stewart didn’t have a whole lot of sympathy for Stone.
“Let me the first to say if you look up the word ‘scumbag’ in the dictionary, you’re going to see Roger Stone’s picture,” Stewart said. She added, “He’s a liar, a leaker to the National Enquirer. He’s a self-proclaimed trickster. He’s not someone that’s a poster child for how politics is run.”
As far as what this means for Donald Trump and the White House, Stewart says the administration will continue to argue that the special counsel’s indictments have nothing to do with the president until they nail someone in the administration. Stewart insisted that she wasn’t trying to “absolve” the White House, arguing that “this indictment right here has specifically to do with Roger Stone and his lying to the House Intel Committee, and right now, it is not directly specifically tied to this White House.”
