For more than a year, Roger Stone has claimed that he spent Christmas 2016 surviving an assassination attempt – most likely a radioactive polonium poisoning – by trying to encircle Russia.
Tests were carried out; Www.mjfriendship.de/de/index.php?op…ew&id=6 # 1991 Physicians were astonished, said Donald Trump 's longtime political activist and adviser to journalists. Even the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention were contacted.
But from the moment he formulated the allegations, Stone rejected questions when he was asked to assist them.
It happened again on Friday during a far-reaching conversation with CNN's Anderson Cooper, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, and Trump. At one point, Cooper said he had questions about Stone's polonium claims.
"I was extremely ill," Stone Cooper said, before referring to pictures of his face at that time. "You can see in the file you used at the beginning of the segment that I still had lesions on my face from this disease, my doctor thought I was poisoned, and they initially believed that there was a radioactive element has never been so sick in my life. "
But Stone did not go into detail when Cooper asked for evidence, even if the host insisted that" polonium poisoning, that would be a big problem in the United States when someone became poisoned with polonium. "
However, Stone resisted:" I do not think that my health is of much interest to the American people except for half of those who only wish I would drop dead. "

When Stone spoke on CNN, an ocean away, a former Russian spy and his daughter recover from one Poisoning attempt in a British city, which the British government says points to Russia.
The poisoning last month by S Ergi Skripal and his daughter Yulia have sparked a diplomatic crisis between Russia and the West. Britain and dozens of other countries, including the United States, have expelled more than 150 Russian diplomats in a solidarity operation. Russia, in turn, has ordered the expulsion of Western diplomats from embassies in Moscow and the closure of consulates, including the US facility in St. Petersburg.
The scripts were found unconscious on a public bank in Salisbury. He is a 66-year-old former colonel of the Russian secret service who was convicted for supporting British agents and subsequently released in a spy exchange. She is 33 years old and had just dined with her father in a restaurant called Zizzi.
The police said father and daughter had been "targeted." Officials have not publicly identified the nerve disease, but they have found traces of it in the restaurant, according to the Associated Press.
Russia bizarrely contradicts a conspiracy involving two dead guinea pigs and one dead cat. And like Ruston, the Russians claim that poisoning the scripts was an effort to encircle Moscow.
Stone's poisoning claims first appeared in an interview with Timeman's Alex Altman in February 2017.
"I was getting worse, having fever of over 100 for almost 17 consecutive days. I went to the hospital, they did blood tests, they were confused, blood tests went to the CDC, they found an exogenous substance in my blood had the properties of polonium, "he said.
Like Cooper, Altman asked for evidence.
Stone told him "there are too many suspects" to find out who would do that to murder him
However, he put forward a theory about one possible motive: "The Senate intelligence committee would have hearings You could see why some people do not want me to do that, you know, you're shoving off Stone and making it look like the Russians did it: "Wow, the Russians killed their agent because he was in Congress The deep state moves in a strange way. "
As the New York Times wrote, the case of Skripal bears similarities to the fate of Alexander Litvinenko, who was killed by radioactive polonium-210, the Slipped into his tea in 2006, was fatally poisoned. Litvinenko was a colonel in the FSB, following the notorious KGB. He often attacked Russian President Vladimir Putin.
On Friday, neither Cooper nor Stone mentioned the case of the Skripals or Litvinenko, though, if Stone's allegations are true, there are similarities: A high-ranking civilian secretly attacked with a deadly substance
Stone was an Advisor to Trump in the 2016 presidential campaign. He left in August 2015, but was still a Trump supporter – and a substitute for the candidate in the media.
Most recently, the longtime political activist in the news, after claiming to be, was Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, who resided in the Ecuadorian embassy in London.
As reported by Tom Hamburger, Josh Dawsey, Carol D. Leonnig and Shane Harris of the Post, "possible contacts with WikiLeaks were investigated by federal researchers coordinating President Trump's allies with Russians who want to overturn the 2016 race President has repeatedly denied any collusion with Russia.
