Yes, Roger, It's "Politically Motivated"
After making bail, longtime Trump confidante, Roger Stone, dismissed the charges against him as "politically motivated." Hard to argue with that. The crimes for which he now stands charged were entirely politically motivated.
The theft of Democratic party emails was politically motivated. Leaking those emails to Julian Assange, that was politically motivated. The connivance of the Trump campaign with Wikileaks, even if it was conducted by Trump-friendly middlemen, was politically motivated. The major dump of stolen emails by Assange on the very same day as the Access Hollywood tape of Trump boasting about his ability to grope women was politically motivated. The timing of the release of the Trump tape and the release of the Clinton emails was coordinated and Steve Bannon was delighted. That was no coincidence. It was orchestrated. Lying to Congress was politically motivated. The witness tampering was politically motivated.
These are all political crimes and any prosecution of those crimes will reflect that. So when dirty trickster Roger Stone says the prosecution is tainted, he's just blowing smoke up your arse.
It's not surprising that Stone made a gesture on the courthouse steps that we haven't seen for a while.
In case you don't know, Roger Stone idolizes Tricky Dicky. He even has Nixon's face tattooed on his back.
Stone left the courthouse in Fort Lauderdale to a crowd changing "lock him up, lock him up."
