Recently, MSNBC aired a video that suggests that Roger Stone, a seasoned Republican strategist, had been actively plotting ways to overturn the 2020 presidential election results even before Joe Biden’s win was announced. Here’s the full story.
Exclusive Video Unveils Roger Stone’s Election Scheme
On Wednesday, the political world was once again rocked when MSNBC’s The Beat broadcast an exclusive video clip suggesting that Roger Stone, a veteran GOP operative, had actively schemed to overturn the 2020 presidential election results.
Pre-Election Manipulation Uncovered
What’s even more astonishing? This occurred before Joe Biden was declared the victor.
The Source of the Footage
This startling footage was initially sourced by Christoffer Guldbrandsen, a Danish filmmaker, as part of his soon-to-be-released documentary, A Storm Foretold.
Stone’s Laptop Strategy Discussion
Within the video, Stone is seen excitedly discussing a strategy with an unidentified associate on a laptop.
Their agenda? Undermine the democratic process and the will of millions of voters.
Questioning the Democratic Process
Stone can be distinctly heard on the November 5, 2020 recording, asserting that “although state officials in all 50 states must ultimately certify the results of the voting in their state… the final decision… is a decision made solely by the legislature.”
Stone’s Legal Situation
Stone would have been serving time in prison for multiple charges, including lying to Congress and witness tampering.
However, he was at large, courtesy of President Trump’s reduction of his 40-month sentence earlier that summer.
Undermining Democracy and Voter Will
The footage goes on to capture Stone’s assertive stance, where he suggests that a legislative body, when presented with “overwhelming evidence of fraud,” has the authority to send electors to the Electoral College, even if such a decision opposes the authentic voting results.
Mobilizing Republican Legislatures
Stone also emphasizes mobilizing to convince Republican legislatures: “We must be prepared to lobby our Republican legislatures…by personal contact and by demonstrating the overwhelming will of the people in their state – in each state -that this may need to happen.”
Georgia Grand Jury Indictments
The recent revelation comes in close proximity to Monday’s indictment of 19 individuals by a Georgia grand jury for making similar plans.
Timeline of Indictments and Stone’s Actions
MSNBC anchor Ari Melber shed light on the timeline, noting that Stone’s recorded actions predated these indictments.
The expansive 98-page indictment document also mentioned 30 unindicted co-conspirators.
Unindicted Co-Conspirators Speculation
Speculations are rife, given the current revelations, that Stone might be among these unnamed individuals.
While Stone remains silent, refraining from commenting on MSNBC’s queries, Guldbrandsen shared with The Daily Beast that Stone is less than pleased about the footage’s publication. Guldbrandsen said, “I respect that he has been able to restrain himself from going after me.”
This sentiment offers a glimpse into the tensions bubbling beneath the political surface.
Guldbrandsen’s Insights Into Stone
Further insights into Stone’s disposition come from an additional clip from Guldbrandsen’s documentary.
In this snippet, which was procured by The Daily Beast last year, Stone’s emotional volatility is clear. Upon being informed, on Trump’s final day in office, that he wouldn’t be receiving a pardon from the outgoing President, Stone’s fury found a target in Ivanka Trump, whom he disparagingly referred to with a swear.
The recent revelations about Stone’s attempts to challenge the 2020 election outcomes will likely reverberate throughout the political world.
As the nation grapples with these truths coming to light, many will watch with bated breath to see what further revelations Guldbrandsen’s documentary will bring.
Larger Political Dynamics
With Stone’s long-standing influence within the GOP circles, these revelations not only spotlight an individual’s actions but also the larger undercurrents within certain political factions.
