Roger Stone: I Was Poisoned by Russia

Political consultant Roger Stone has again asserted he spent Christmas 2016 trying to survive an assassination attempt — most likely radioactive polonium poisoning — by someone trying to frame Russia.

During a wide-ranging conversation with CNN’s Anderson Cooper on Attorney General Jeff Sessions, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and President Donald Trump, Cooper also questioned Stone about his 2017 assertion of polonium poisoning.

“I was extraordinarily ill,” Stone told Cooper, before referring to pictures of his face during the period.

“You can see in the file footage that you used at the beginning of the segment that I still have lesions on my face from that illness,” he said. “My doctor believed I was poisoned. They believed initially that there was some radioactive element to that. I’ve never been this sick in my life.”

He told Cooper the poisoning was made to look like the fault of the Russians.

But Stone wouldn’t go into detail when Cooper asked for proof — referring to his “reports on InfoWars,” even when Anderson insisted that “polonium poisoning, that would be a huge issue in the United States if someone was poisoned with polonium.”

“I don’t think my health is of great interest to the American people other than the half of them that just wish I would drop dead,” he said.

“I’m the conservative every liberal loves to hate,” he added.

Neither Cooper nor Stone mentioned the case of nerve agent poisoning of Sergei Skripal and his daughter or Russian Federal Security Service and KGB colonel and Vladimir Putin critic Alexander Litvinenko, who was fatally poisoned by radioactive polonium-210 slipped into his tea in 2006.

Stone was an adviser to Trump on the 2016 presidential campaign, leaving in August 2015; he also was a surrogate for the candidate in the media.

In other remarks, Stone said:

  • that there ought to be a special counsel probe on FISA abuses and Uranium One sale;
  • that Trump should dismiss Attorney General Jeff Sessions;
  • that he hasn’t himself heard from special counsel Robert Mueller, saying “if I didn’t know better, I’d think Sam Nunberg was trying to frame me;”
  • that he never met with or spoke with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, and that his remark that he had dinner with him, as claimed by Nunberg, was “a throwaway line” to the former Trump political adviser, whom Stone described as “neurotic.”
