Roger Stone tells Trump to bring in martial law if he loses election | The Independent
Mr Stone said he wants an honest, legal and transparent election in which the real winner takes office - but he ruled out Joe Biden as that real winner and said "force will be met with force" if Mr Trump is not re-elected. He recommended "forming an election day operation using the FBI, federal marshals and Republican state officials across the country to be prepared to file legal objections [to voting results] and if necessary to physically stand in the way of criminal activity".

Trump ally also recommends jailing the Clintons and Mark Zuckerberg

Roger Stone, a former political consultant for the Trump campaign and convicted felon, has said the president should impose martial law if he loses the election in November.

The veteran Republican operative said Donald Trump should invoke the Insurrection Act and arrest Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook, Tim Cook of Apple, Bill and Hillary Clinton and "anybody else who can be proven to be involved in illegal activity".

"I do not advocate preventive detention, but people who commit crimes and think they can continue to get away with it because we have two-tier justice are just wrong," he told conspiracy theorist Alex Jones during a call to his online Infowars show.

Mr Stone repeated uncorroborated claims of voter fraud in Florida and Nevada, and said that votes from the latter state, where Mr Trump held a campaign rally on Saturday, should not be counted because "they are already flooded with illegals".

"The ballots in Nevada on election night should be seized by federal marshals and taken from the state," he said.

"They are completely corrupted.

"No votes should be counted from the state of Nevada if that turns out to be the provable case.

"Send federal marshals to the Clark county board of elections, Mr President."

Mr Stone said he wants an honest, legal and transparent election in which the real winner takes office - but he ruled out Joe Biden as that real winner and said "force will be met with force" if Mr Trump is not re-elected.

He recommended "forming an election day operation using the FBI, federal marshals and Republican state officials across the country to be prepared to file legal objections [to voting results] and if necessary to physically stand in the way of criminal activity".

Mr Stone went on to suggest that journalists, specifically those from the Daily Beast , be jailed if they are found to be involved in "seditious and illegal activity", in response to a report on the website detailing what left-wing groups plan to do if Mr Trump loses November's election but refuses to leave office.

He said: "If the Daily Beast is involved in provably seditious and illegal activities, their entire staff can be taken into custody and their office can be shut down. They want to play war, this is war."

Mr Stone was indicted by federal prosecutors on seven counts, including witness tampering and lying to federal investigators, following Robert Mueller's November 2019 investigation into the Trump campaign's involvement in Russia hacking the 2016 election.

He was found guilty and sentenced to 40 months in federal prison, but Mr Trump commuted Mr Stone's sentence in July 2020 after he publicly pleaded for him to do so.

Roger Stone is a good friend of Trump and likely represents Trump's thinking. 

Mr Stone said he wants an honest, legal and transparent election in which the real winner takes office - but he ruled out Joe Biden as that real winner and said "force will be met with force" if Mr Trump is not re-elected. He recommended "forming an election day operation using the FBI, federal marshals and Republican state officials across the country to be prepared to file legal objections [to voting results] and if necessary to physically stand in the way of criminal activity".

Wake the hell up America. This is not a joke.

Roy Cohn "The Worst Person in the World" had three proteges Paul Manafort, Roger Stone and Don Trump.

Stone is pretty blatantly advocating that Trump seize power in the US by force should he end up on the wrong end of the vote total.  He is also advocating that Trump forces enter polling places and physically intimidate voters. We know Stone admires Putin and other Russian mobsters but now he is advocating Soviet style elections in the US !

This from a guy who walks around with a tattoo of Richard Nixon on his back! Yeah right. Stone should have just stayed in jail!

Stone is nuts and arrogant enough that he probably has it tattooed on his scrotum!

I wouldn't be surprised.

Stone should be in jail.

One of the rare instances we  actually agree on a political issue.

There's still hope for you!

Fundamentally, it's not really a political issue, is it?  Stone was convicted by a jury of 7 serious felony crimes.  The commutation of his sentence may have the patina of politics, but in reality it was a reward for participating in a cover up.  As Mitt Romney aptly stated:  "Unprecented, historic corruption:  an American president commutes the sentence of a person convicted of lying to shield that very president".

If he loses, he won't have the authority to do shit but considering his rabid supporters, someone just might have to do just that.

So the actual convicted criminal is for locking folks up if they can be "proven to be involved in illegal activity"?  Will he be reporting back to prison, again?
