S.E. Cupp Rips Roger Stone: ‘People Can Lie Seems Like an Odd Defense to Lying’


On Saturday, CNN’s S.E. Cupp weighed in on the Roger Stone arrest and his decision to go on a mini-media tour that very same day.

“Roger Stone, a name you may have been hearing a bit about lately,” she said.

She continued on: “He was arrested during a pre-dawn raid at his Florida home and released on a quarter of a million dollars bond yesterday afternoon. Now, most people in his shoes might want to spend the evening huddling with their legal team to determine how to defend against the seven felony charges brought by special counsel Robert Mueller, which include one count of obstruction, five counts of false statements and one count of witness tampering.”

She then stressed Stone was obviously not “most people” before playing a clip of Stone talking with CNN’s Chris Cuomo hours after his arrest.

“There’s a 100% chance in your mind that nobody can offer any compelling credible proof that Donald Trump knew about your efforts to get to Wikileaks?” Cuomo asked in the clip.

Stone replied, “Nobody can supply any corroborating truth. People can have their testimony composed, particularly if they are looking for a reduction to their sentence,  but there is no proof here.”

After the clip aired, Cupp noted that Stone’s stated defense wasn’t actually much of one at all.

“People can lie seems like an odd defense to lying,” Cupp noted, before stressing Stone often seems like a sideshow and “seems to like it that way.”
