All those people who said they would take a bullet for Trump seem to be ducking.

Someone needs to tell RS there is no "pleading the fifth" when it comes to documents.

Put Stone on trial and let him plead the Fifth as often as he likes.

I'd prefer a House interview. A trial might not be televised.

I moved this over from yesterday's Nooner:

Speaking of Roger Stone, his grandson has set up a GOFUNDME account to help pay his grandfather's legal bills.

If any "rightly" truly wants to help Trump, now is the time. Don't forget to look under your couch cushions. Pennies add up.

Roger Stone Invokes Fifth Amendment in Senate Russia Probe

Does Roger Stone realize that there's a difference between the Fifth Amendment and a fifth of liquor?

And the best part is...

$3,798 of $100,000 goal Raised by 96 people in 6 months
At this rate they should reach their $100,000 goal somewhere around the year 2026.

Probably not. I think mobsters steal those little bottles that "accidently" fall of the back of airport delivery trucks.

More like 2032.

I hope they hold their breath.

If he keeps pleading the 5th he's going to need more than $100,000.

Dig deep righties. Now's your chance to show your faith in Trump's innocence. You DO still believe, don't you?

That little $3,798 in Roger Steel's GOFUNDME account won't even cover his liquor bill. Get up on the wheel now and start helping.

Why do these rich people need GOFUNDME?

#16 | Posted by Zed at 2018-12-05 10:31 AM | Reply

Well, if Imaginary OBAMA was called before a committee investigating Russian election interference, he would also plead the fifth. IMHO

So there

Roger Stone is actually campaigning to become the next Governor of Florida. It worked for Rick Scott. But Stone will need to plead the fifth at least 70 more times.

Trump pledged a dollar. But Stone will have to sue him to get it.

"My grandfather has even been forced to use the small amount he has made from the sale of the five books he has written that was supposed to help pay for my college education and the college education of my sisters and my cousins – all of Roger Stone's grandchildren."

Hysterical. More power to him if he can leverage his grandfather's popularity among conservatives to get strangers to put him through college though.

With Sumter County votes voiding Broward County votes, it is entirely possible.

"But Stone will need to plead the fifth at least 70 more times."

At least. LOL!

It is also home of The Villages, which would account for those numbers.

I remember reading a story a few years ago about a large retirement community in Florida that was rampant with STD's because it was basically a large swingers community. The geriatrcic crowd getting it on with as many anonymous partners as possible.

Well, they'll Stone you when you try to plead the Fifth
They'll Stone you when you hide who you met with
They'll Stone you when your lawyer's name is Smith
They'll Stone you when your honesty's a myth
Mueller should not feel so all alone
Everybody must get Stone

They're not anonymous Jeff, they all live in the same community and full well know each other but aren't unencumbered by society's normal conventions.

Grandma and grandpa getting their freak on isn't new. But it adds a whole another dimension to the Golden Years doesn't it? And thank ED meds for this uptick too at least as it regards the dudes.

Makes sense. The right wing losers don't mind that ED meds are covered under Obamacare or Medicare but don't let either cover birth control.
