Roger Stone, a former adviser to US President Donald Trump, who is convicted on charges including obstructing official procedures, lying and manipulating witnesses, said that if Trump loses the next election to his Democratic opponent, Joe Biden, he must seize power completely and imprison prominent figures, according to the British Guardian newspaper ( Guardian).
Stone stated - according to the newspaper - that if Trump loses the presidential bet, he should imprison personalities, such as former President Bill Clinton and his wife Hillary and the CEO and founder of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg.
Stone had been charged by Special Counsel Robert Mueller's office in early 2019, including making false statements about the leak of WikiLeaks emails of the Democratic Party, and documents leaked by the Russians as part of the campaign to influence the 2016 elections, which Trump won.
Based on allegations that fraud may have occurred due to early, absentee or mail voting, Stone said that Trump should consider enacting martial law, arresting the Clintons and former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook, Tim Cook of Apple, and " Any other person found involved in illegal activity. "
Stone, who was in Nevada, added, on the same day Trump was presiding over election events there, "Ballot papers in Nevada must be confiscated on election night by federal guards and taken from the state ... all of them are fraudulent .. No votes from this state should be counted." Send federal guards, Mr. President!
Nevada has not fallen into the Republican Party since 2004, but it is likely to witness a strong fight this time between Republicans and Democrats, although Biden is leading there, according to opinion polls.
Commenting on a report published by the American Daily Beast website about the left-wing activist groups planning what to do, "If the election ends without a clear result or with a victory for Biden, Trump refuses to recognize it," Stone said, "This site should be closed."
"If the Daily Beast is involved in seditious and illegal activities, its employees can be completely detained and its offices can be closed ... They want to play war, this is war," he added.
Stone also called for "planning an Election Day process, involving the FBI, federal officers and Republican state officials across the country, to be willing to file legal objections to the results and, if necessary, to" physically address any criminal activity. "
