Roger Stone Says He’s Found Jesus
During his trial on a number of charges, Roger Stone did not seem to be taking the situation very seriously. He posted about his trial numerous times on social media, leading to a gag order from Judge Amy Berman Jackson.
“The situation has become less of a joke for the longtime political operator as he’s been ordered to turn himself into jail in the coming weeks. With his prison sentence looming, Stone is now saying that’s he’s turned to religion to get him through this situation.
The former political adviser says he’s received counsel from Evangelical and fellow Trump supporter Jerry Falwell Jr.
According to Stone, Falwell Jr. to, “put myself in God’s hands. That I should put my faith in God, and confess my sins, acknowledge Jesus Christ in my life. And I have done that.”
The self admitted dirty trickster continued, “I’m aware of the fact there are skeptics who are going to say ‘Stone is posturing. Stone is maneuvering for public sympathy,’ and so on. But that’s just not the case. And He, God, knows what’s in my heart.”
Last week, Stone appeared on Tucker Carlson’s show. He claimed that due to underlying health conditions, sending him to jail would be like issuing a death sentence.
At 67 years old, with some underlying health problems, including a history of asthma, I believe, with the coronavirus, it is essentially a death sentence,” Stone said. “I am praying for justice, I am praying for mercy.”
