HEADPHONE WARNING: Roger Stone's language not work-safe.

Why do criminals like Roger Stone say yes to Dutch documentarians? Ego.

There's a very long and worth-the-click article at The Washington Post outlining many of Roger Stone's activities commemorated ON FILM by people from The Netherlands making a documentary called "A Storm Foretold."

Ed Greenberger on Twitter summarized the video above as well as I could: "Here’s Roger Stone on Inauguration Day turning on Trump because Trump didn’t give him a preemptive pardon for things he says he didn’t do. He then threatens to kill the filmmakers & physically beat Jared Kushner, who will end up 'brain dead.'"

There are swears and threats and this particular gem:

Stone added that Trump might be vulnerable to prosecution by federal authorities in Manhattan after declining to preemptively pardon himself.

“A good, long sentence in prison will give him a chance to think about it, because the Southern District is coming for him, and he did nothing,” Stone said.

Though months later he would support a possible Trump bid for the White House in 2024, on Inauguration Day he mocked the idea. “Run again! You’ll get your f---ing brains beat in,” Stone said.

Roger Stone is the guy you always thought he was. But WHY did he want pardons for Jim Jordan and Josh Hawley?

And the whole thing reminds me of my husband's pinned tweet, that he wrote THE MORNING AFTER Trump was elected in 2016. Because yeah.

Roger Stone's violent outburst is what happened when he didn't pardon his goons and henchmen after all.
