Roger Stone: 'Ruling Elite Are Wetting Their Britches' Over Trump

Republican and Democratic party leaders are wracked with anxiety over the candidacies of their frontrunners Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, GOP political consultant Roger Stone tells Newsmax TV.

"The ruling elite are wetting their britches [over Trump]. The lobbyists can't buy him off, they can't bully him, they can't boss him.... They're going out of their minds," Stone, a former adviser to the Trump campaign, said Monday on "The Steve Malzberg Show."

"He has a unique opportunity to bring conservative reform to government without heeding the special interest to kind of water down any kind of reforms. He can take on the entire broken system that is financed by dirty money because he's financially independent."

And liberals' nerves are just as frayed, according to Stone.

"There's panic in the Democratic Party. Hillary — this is the second time she was a sure thing because she was a sure thing last time, too, and it's falling apart before her very eyes. She is mired in email-gate," Stone said.

"There's a new lie every week. There's a new revelation every couple days. She's incapable of telling the truth. Her defenses are not believable. Her performance is pathetic. Halting, cautious, she's stuck and there's no way out.

"She's trying to make light of it, make a joke of it but it's not a joke. The Chinese, the Russians may have our most sensitive confidential documents regarding the security of this country because of her political concerns."

Stone said that Clinton is, in one way, very much like President Richard Nixon — whose involvement in the Watergate scandal led to him resigning — in that she's "very tough, very tenacious."

"But unlike Nixon, Nixon did not destroy the evidence of his crimes and she did," Stone alleged.

He said Vice President Joe Biden, who is considering a challenge to Clinton, has been
effective in the sense that "he's a partisan attack dog for Barack Obama."

But, Stone added, "he has not stirred the hearts and minds of Democrats. The problem is that he appeals to the very same Democrats Hillary appeals to: the Wall Street Democrats, the regular establishment Democrats and labor."

Asked about the possibility of Biden running with Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren as his vice presidential pick, Stone said:

"That ticket would be very potent but I can't imagine why she would do that. She's much smarter than Joe Biden. Let's face it, he has been wrong on every major foreign policy issue in our lifetime, has been consistently wrong.

"The guy is gaffe central and his campaign would be very, very entertaining as he stumbles from mistake to mistake...."
