Roger Stone to Congress: Vote Impeachment And Your Life is In Danger

Share

Roger Stone is certainly one of the more controversial figures to have advised Donald Trump on the 2016 campaign trail. The former Nixon aide has no problem letting the world know how he feels, not only about politics, but about life in general. And as the media starts to turn their attention to the possible impeachment of President Trump should Special Counsel Robert Mueller find evidence of wrongdoing, Stone is front and center once again.

TMZ caught up to Stone this week, and happened to ask him his opinion on a possible Trump impeachment. Stone certainly didn’t disappoint. The former Trump adviser wasn’t too optimistic about Trump’s future in the White House, and blamed those who didn’t vote for him for the current political atmosphere.

“The people who are calling for impeachment are the people who didn’t vote for him,” he said. “Sorry, he whipped your ass. It’s over, you lost.”

Stone then went on to even surprise those at TMZ, explaining what he thinks would happen should those against the President move to impeach him, or remove him from office in any other way.

“You will have a spasm of violence in this country, an insurrection like you’ve never seen!” Stone warned. “Both sides are heavily armed. This is not 1974. The people will not stand for impeachment. A politician who votes for [impeachment] would be endangering their own life,” he continued.

Stone did make clear to TMZ that he was not at all advocating violence should Congress seek impeachment, but instead it was only his opinion after being involved in politics for nearly five decades. Clearly such remarks are inflammatory to the current political atmosphere, especially when the American people seem to be divided more now than at any time over the last four to five decades.
