Roger Stone, Trump’s longtime friend and adviser, has been permanently banned from Twitter for explicitly harassing and threatening people, so he’s had a hard time getting people to listen to him lately.
However, this may be the one time his message is worth hearing, because he’s saying Donald J. Trump is done.
Stone is now planning to cash in on Trump’s downfall with his book that is preliminarily titled The Unmaking of the President as part of his multi-book deal with Skyhorse Publishing. “I’ve been writing it as we go along,” he told Vanity Fair.
Stone said he decided write the book after seeing how the White House responded to Robert Mueller’s investigation into the Trump/Russia scandal.
“It’s painfully obvious Mueller will bring charges. The theory is Mueller will indict him on some process-related matter” such as obstruction of justice. “The only people who don’t seem to know it are Ty Cobb, [John] Dowd, and the president.”
Stone also points out that he believes Trump could be removed from office because he has surrounded himself with disloyal Cabinet members and other top officials. “Nikki Haley stuck a knife in his back,” Stone said, referring to her comments about Trump’s accusers. According to Stone’s back-of-the-napkin tally, only two Cabinet members would vote against invoking the 25th Amendment, the provision by which the president can be deemed unable to serve (Congress would have to vote by a two-thirds majority to remove him permanently).
Stone made it clear he’s not writing the book because he wants to, he’s just planning ahead. “I hope it’s a book I don’t have to publish,” he said, expressing dismay at Trump’s political prospects. “I just don’t think Trump is being told the truth about how bad things are.”
Stone’s goal is to gain support for his own books and to ultimately line his own pockets. He’s even going to write a new book called “The Fall of Trump”. He’s not to be trusted on many things, but this may be the one thing he understands. Stone still talks to his bestie regularly and despite Trump’s public attempts to appear strong and unaffected, he’s clearly struggling and confiding in his friends about his concerns.
