Danish filmmaker Christoffer Guldbrandsen has tweeted another clip of Roger Stone ranting against Donald Trump. But who, if anyone, was Stone talking to?

Guldbrandsen, the director of the coming documentary, “A Storm Foretold,” tweeted out a clip from the film on Saturday morning with the comment, “Footage from Jan 20 2021. Stone supports impeaching Trump: ‘Run again you’ll get your fucking brains beat in.’” We see Stone, in a car, holding a phone to his ear.

Before that statement, Stone says in the clip, “I’m done with this president. I’m gonna go public, supporting impeachment. I have no choice. He has to go.”

Impeachment? Really? Joe Biden was inaugurated on January 20, 2021. So, when did Stone think Trump was going to be impeached (again)?

We do know that Stone was angry at Trump for not granting him a second pardon. We also know, via a March 4, 2022 article in The Washington Post, that Stone was on the phone with someone only identified as “a friend named Tom.” The Washington Post also noted that just months later, Stone supported a Trump 2024 presidential run.

This latest clip (also published in the Post's March article) appears to be part of the same incident Guldbrandsen dropped in a clip on Friday, in which Stone was seen in the same shirt, also in a car, and also holding a phone to his ear. In that clip, Stone ranted that Jared Kushner has an IQ of 70 and concluded with, “F*ck you and your abortionist b*tch daughter.”

So who is “Tom?” Did the filmmakers confirm that Stone was really speaking with someone? Or was the notorious dirty trickster faking the whole conversation? I report, you decide.

We know this really happened, according to The Post: “After ending the call, [Stone] turned to the filmmakers. ‘Obviously if you use any of that, I’ll murder you,’ he said.”
