Roger Stone, a former top Trump advisor, is named in the DNC's lawsuit alleging collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign, along with Jared Kushner, Donald Trump Jr., WikiLeaks, Guccifer 2.0, and more. He discussed his reaction on Saturday's 'Jimmy Mathis Show.'
"These lawyers need to be sanctioned," Stone said of the DNC lawsuit. "This is bogus, it is meritless, baseless, it is a strung together fantasy of things they find suspicious because of their left-wing worldview. I think it is probably a fundraising device for the DNC. But, as you pointed out, it has opened the door for discovery, so we're going to find out if they were really hacked by the Russians, which I doubt. Or by anybody, which I doubt."
ROGER STONE: [The DNC's suit] is a massive bogus, meritless lawsuit designed to get headlines...
They have no program to run the country, to revitalize the economy or create jobs or fix the trade imbalance, or for peace in the world, they have no plans at all. It is 100% hate Trump. I do not think that is a great message going into an election, especially with the economy growing at 3%... and the prospects of denuclearization with North Korea...
JIMMY MATHIS: [Mark Levin noted] the possibility of discovery, so are the Democrats opening up a Pandora's box here?
ROGER STONE: No, my lawyers who I met with this morning are going to move immediately to inspect their servers, we have very right to do that because [the Democrats] are alleging a hacking they can't even prove...
What they have is a left-wing conspiracy theory dressed up as a lawsuit. They have no evidence, no proof. All of their cites are from left wing fake news sources. 'Somebody reported in the news that...' and therefore it is true.
They bring in the Podesta email question of Hillary Clinton's emails, even though neither is relevant in the case or the charges against me. So it is just an attempt to be salacious.
By the way, they also incorrectly truncate my iconic tweet. "The Podestas time in the barrel." The "The!" disappears, so it implies that I knew about Podesta's emails in advance, which I didn't...

All these defendants are going to have to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars just on legal fees for a motion to dismiss, or summary judgment.
This is the same lawsuit already filed against Trump and I by Project Democracy, an Obama front... There is no case there, there is no case here. They have no proof.
Roger Stone's attorney sent this clarification:
In recent media reports the DNC claims the remedy was costly. The suit details the necessary fixes; the DNC had to "decommission more than 140 servers, remove and reinstall all software, including the operating systems, for more than 180 computers, and rebuild at least 11 servers."
If the DNC thought there was even a remote chance it would sue a foreign government, the Campaign of the President of the United States, Roger Stone, and others, it had an obligation not to destroy the evidence.
We sent the preservation and hold letter because we want to know if the DNC "cremated the body" before we could examine and test the toxcity of the DNC's questionable claims. Based on the reports and the lawsuit, the DNC is expecting, without verification, for a jury and America to accept its narrative.
