Roger Stone


Every so often a guest comes along that is so controversial, interesting, and debate stirring that it would be considered crazy to not bring them back for another round. On this very special episode of The Malliard Report Jim welcomes back a man with an ego as big as his wardrobe, the one and only Roger Stone.

Roger Stone is “an American political consultant, lobbyist, and strategist, noted for his use of opposition research usually for candidates of the Republican Party. In 1980, he co-founded the Washington, DC-based lobbying firm Black, Manafort, Stone with principals Paul Manafort and Charles R. Black Jr. They recruited Peter G. Kelly and the firm was renamed Black, Manafort, Stone and Kelly in 1984. During the 1980s, BMSK leveraged its ‘White House connections’ to attract ‘high-paying clients” including ‘U.S. corporations’, ‘trade associations’, and foreign governments. By 1990, it was ‘one of the leading lobbyists for American companies and foreign organizations”. Stone variously has been referred in media as a ‘political dirty trickster,’ a ‘renowned infighter,’ a ‘seasoned practitioner of hard-edged politics,’ and a ‘veteran Republican strategist over the course of his political career.”

On this episode Jim and Roger get into some rather weighty discussions and in typical Roger Stone fashion, Roger pulls no punches. While typically a brief synapsis is given of some of the discussions here, however it is believed that it would only be doing a disservice to you dear listener. So do yourself a favor and go ahead a listen the episode already.

Normally we suggest connecting with the guests via social media as well…but there seems to be a little bit of an “issue” between Roger and Twitter currently.
