Ex-Trump aide claims he is the target of assassination plot

Former Trump aide Roger Stone claims he is currently the target of an assassination plot, following a hit-and-run incident he was involved in on his way to Orlando.

In an interview with Infowars host Alex Jones, Stone said his car was “T-boned” by “deep state” actors who were trying to assassinate him before he could testify at next week’s congressional investigations into the Russian hacking scandal.

“They have poisoned me, they have smeared me, and someone in a car tried to kill me,” Mr. Stone told Jones, HeatStreet reports. “I am a consistent critic of the ‘deep state’— that’s why I think I’m targeted.”

HeatStreet reports “deep state” is referring to a conspiracy theory that there is a coalition of federal agencies working to undermine the president.

The Broward County Sheriff’s Office confirmed with HeatStreet that there was a hit-and-run accident at the time and place described by Mr. Stone in the interviews given to Jones and CBS4. However, HeatStreet reports that a deputy was not sent to the accident until almost an hour and a half after the crash and that the report does not mention Stone being a passenger in the vehicle because he had allegedly left the scene before police arrived.

Stone said he left because it took too long for police to show up.

According to HeatStreet, Stone has admitted to having private conversations with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, as well as Guccifer 2.0, the group that took credit for the Democratic National Committee hacks.

Stone has also agreed to testify in the congressional investigation into Russia’s alleged attempts to rig the U.S. election and any ties Trump may have had to the case.
