Appearing with Steve Malzberg on NewsMax TV, Trump confidant Roger Stone discusses the role he believes Reince Priebus played in ousting national security adviser Mike Flynn.
ROGER STONE: Sadly I think there is more to this. There is a political backstory. While I respect the president's decision, I really think the White House chief-of-staff Reince Priebus made this move. Frankly, I don't think this was a firing offense, General Flynn could have publicly apologized and this would be over.
In a way perhaps, this is the Pearl Harbour for real Trump supporters. Because I think Mr. Priebus's agenda is clear: First General Flynn, then Stephen Miller, and then Steve Bannon.
The White House staff has too many people with loyalties to the Republican Party and not to the president. The place leaks like a sieve. And those leaks are damaging to the president, they are not strategic leaks, they are particularly damaging to the president.
Frankly I give credit to Chris Ruddy of Newsmax to be the first guy with the courage to say what everybody who is loyal to the president is thinking: It is time for Mr. Priebus to move on.
