Trump Advisor Roger Stone Poisoned and Survived
The longtime Trump supporter claimed to have been told by doctors that a mysterious and debilitating virus he was suddenly struck with in December was in fact polonium poisoning.
He says the poisoning was an attempt to stop him from testifying at a Congressional Hearing where he claimed he could prove the accusation was a lie.
‘I believe I was poisoned to stop me from exposing the Russian Hacking LIE b4 the Congressional Investigation,’ Stone, 64, told his Twitter followers.
Appearing on fellow Trump loyalist Alex Jones’s Info Wars earlier, he said he was targeted by the ‘deep state’ who wanted to stop him from revealing the truth.
‘I became extremely ill. This manifested itself in over 14 days of high fever, delirium, night sweats, I had lesions on my chest and my face…
‘The general consensus is I was poisoned. I was poisoned with polonium or a substance that has the characteristics of polonium and this made me exceedingly ill,’ he said.
During a visit to Trump Tower on December 6, Stone had several small cuts to his face and neck.
While admitting he is an ‘enemy’ of Bill and Hillary Clinton, Stone said neither the couple nor the Russians were responsible for the apparent attempt on his life.
Failing to specify any specific culprit, he said: ‘I come back to the deep state, I come back to our own people.
‘This is about stopping the Trump agenda. I would blow the whistle on this whole bogus Russian narrative that they just won’t let go of,’ he said.
Polonium is a rare and highly radioactive chemical. It was used in the 2006 murder of Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko who is believed to have been slipped the substance in a cup of tea.
