There’s the old saying that a rolling stone gathers no moss. We can adapt that to Roger Stone wasting no time. He recently published a book called, “The Making Of The President 2016,” and now he’s working on its sequel, “The Unmaking Of The President.” It wouldn’t be Roger Stone without a healthy dose of conspiracy theory. Trump’s Cabinet is out to get him, per Stone, particularly U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, whose comments recently on Face The Nation about Trump’s accusers being “heard” and “dealt with” were considered treasonous. Gabriel Sherman, Vanity Fair:
One Trump ally is making plans to commercialize Trump’s downfall. […] Stone said he got the idea to write a book chronicling Trump’s removal from office after watching how the White House responded to the Robert Mueller investigation. “It’s painfully obvious Mueller will bring charges,” Stone said. “The theory is Mueller will indict him on some process-related matter” such as obstruction of justice. “The only people who don’t seem to know it are Ty Cobb, [John] Dowd, and the president.”
Stone also believes Trump could be removed from office because he has surrounded himself with disloyal Cabinet members and other top officials. “Nikki Haley stuck a knife in his back,” Stone said, referring to her comments about Trump’s accusers. According to Stone’s back-of-the-napkin tally, only two Cabinet members would vote against invoking the 25th Amendment, the provision by which the president can be deemed unable to serve (Congress would have to vote by a two-thirds majority to remove him permanently).
Stone made it clear he’s not writing the book because he wants to, he’s just planning ahead. “I hope it’s a book I don’t have to publish,” he said, expressing dismay at Trump’s political prospects. “I just don’t think Trump is being told the truth about how bad things are.”
No, Stone doesn’t want to write the book, he only wants to corner the market with the first insider book when the inevitable toppling of Donald Trump occurs. All of Trump’s tin soldiers are falling fast. Steve Bannon has zero credibility left, Mike Pence is being insulted on the world stage in Jerusalem, and the less said about Roy Moore, who was going to staunchly support Trump’s agenda in the Senate, the better. Maybe Huckabee Sanders can bake Trump a pie.
