Hectic news day. During a break in the Ukraine Impeachment hearings, we got news of Roger Stone’s verdict.
A jury has now found Stone guilty of committing crimes to hide the Trump campaign’s efforts to optimize the release of emails stolen by Russia.— emptywheel (@emptywheel) November 15, 2019
Guilty on all counts. Russia hoax? I think not.

A lot can happen between now and February 6. I wonder if Stone will flip.
The second word jumps out at me — “they”. They is his Justice Department.

Recall in August 2016, Roger Stone tweeted, "it will soon the Podesta’s time in the barrel," right before WikiLeaks began publishing John Podesta's stolen emails. https://t.co/rnn95eOZw3
