A Mueller Witness Says Stone Told Him About Trump's Crimes and KINKY đź‘€Sexual Behavior

 

 
  • Robert Mueller witness, Randy Credico, claims on Twitter that Roger Stone told him of ‘depraved sexual behavior’ and ‘venal economic crimes’ on the part of President Trump.
  • Roger Stone attacks Credico on Instagram.
  • Soon after making these claims Credico’s Twitter account vanishes.
  • Credico tells HillReporter that the tweets were  “all a joke” and that he’s tired of Roger Stone “f*cking with” him.
As Robert Mueller makes his way through dozens of witnesses in his probe of the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia, some rather interesting characters appear to be coming out of the woodwork.
Besides Roger Stone, who is infamous for his wild and often unethical style of politics, a man named Randy Credico has been another intriguing person of interest for Mr, Mueller. Credico, who has been described as an associate of Stone for many years, was involved in a text message exchange with Mr. Stone in 2016 which has caught the interest of both Mueller and members of the House Intelligence Committee.
These text messages indicated that Stone was seeking a presidential pardon for Wikileaks’ Julian Assange. Additionally Roger Stone himself testified before the House Intelligence Committee that Credico was an intermediary between himself and Wikileaks, and that Credico had informed him of Wikileaks’ Clinton email release prior to the emails actually being released.  While Credico exercised his 5th Amendment right before the House Committee, in August of this year his attorneys announced that Mueller had subpoenaed him as well. This is what makes last night’s tweets so much more intriguing. 
Shortly after making these tweets Credico made another interesting tweet simply stating: “This is the kind of shit I’ve had to put up with for the last 14 months because of stone.. might explain it all”. The tweet then included the following image of a reply Stone posted to an Instagram photo of Credico, calling him “human scum serial liar and psycho’ 
To make matters even more interesting, while HillReporter began writing this story, Credico’s entire Twitter account was deleted. 
Considering the fact that Credico is now a witness in the Mueller probe, and that he posted a clear message to the president saying that he knows about both his ‘economic crimes’ and deviant ‘sexual behavior’, it makes the whole Randy Credico angle to this investigation even more interesting. Could Credico have tipped Mueller off to these crimes which he feels are “enough to put [Trump] in prison… for the rest of [his] life,” or is he simply trying to be an agitator?
Hill Reporter reached out to Credico this morning asking him about the tweets and why his account was deleted.  He told us:
“They’re all a joke, they’re all a joke, I closed that account down. 

After a year and a half of Roger Stone f*cking with my head, lying about me,

putting up stuff, me being a drunk and all of that, it was just like a taste of his own medicine.”
Credico then went on to tell us that Stone’s behavior has taken a toll on him, saying “The latest, where he was trying to get this guy to write a story about me — Corsi — to cover his ass, I went through a year of all of this.  It had a psychological toll on me.  He put out pictures of me in a swimming pool, half naked, calling me a drug addict and alcoholic and all of that.”
We also asked Credico whether he was still in talks with the special counsel’s office.  He referred us to his attorney but did claim that “Trump’s name never came up,” during his talks with Mueller’s team. One of my final questions to Credico this morning was whether or not he believes an indictment of Stone is coming.  His reply was brief: “I really don’t know. I can only recommend that he get himself the 12-step program to come to grips with whatever is eating him up inside,” suggesting that Stone has an alcohol problem. Credico’s Twitter account, which was deleted only minutes before the publication of this story, had been active for more than 8 years and had over 30,000 tweets to its credit.

Wembley will be Hosting The World Most Successful LGBT Club

By Ben Church
[[CNN]]  Over the top challenges, elbows, spitting, constant name calling and homophobic songs sung in their faces.
Over the last three decades it's been a tough and winding journey for Stonewall FC -- the world's most successful gay football club -- but on Friday as the players make their way up Wembley Way to play at English football's spiritual home the team will take its next step in campaigning to tackle all forms of discrimination.
In a game against Wilberforce Wanderers AFC, England's national stadium is hosting a special event to honor this pioneering LGBT club and to celebrate the Football Association's landmark partnership with the Stonewall charity.
"This new relationship presents an opportunity for football to help change hearts and minds beyond the stadia, as well as ensuring that everyone who makes football happen feels included," said Paul Elliott, Chair of The FA's Inclusion Advisory Board. 

Wembley trip

Stonewall FC is used to playing in the Middlesex County Division One -- 12 divisions below the English Football League -- but is ready to swap its usual pitch for an altogether different experience at Wembley Stadium, where the England international team plays its games.
"It's surreal, it's bizarre. It's recognition of the progress we've made," said Doug Edward, who after 10 years of captaining the first team will miss the game through injury.
"We don't get paid to play but we've been out since 1991 going to some rough parts of London to play football," he said. 
The club hopes to use the platform of Friday's game to continue normalizing their presence in the sport.
"The progress we've made in challenging stereotypes and educating people in the fight against homophobia is huge and this is the pinnacle," Stonewall manager Eric Najib Armanazim told CNN Sport.
"Maybe in a few years, we won't have to say Stonewall FC, the gay team. But instead just Stonewall FC."
The club was set up in 1991 as a way of allowing openly gay men to play football in London and it now boasts three teams competing at various standards of grassroots football.
And quite successfully at that, reaching the final of every LGBT tournament that they've entered since 2000.
"I just can't believe we've got this far, that wasn't the plan at the beginning. It's gone way beyond what we wanted to do,' said Aslie Pitter MBE, one of the founding members.

Origins of the club

Back in the early 1990s the then Conservative British government had only recently passed Section 28, legislation which banned the promotion of homosexuality by local authorities and schools. 
This was also a febrile time for the gay community given the AIDS crisis.
"Everything that was going on, it was all our fault," Pitter told CNN Sport.
Pitter felt uncomfortable "hiding" in straight teams but things changed after he saw a small advert inviting like-minded men to have a kickabout in the park.

'Unbelievable' abuse

At first, the sessions were informal but they quickly gathered momentum. Within a few months, they had a squad ready to compete in a local league.
"It started off being a group of people who wanted to be anonymous in a straight league due to fear of being hassled and abused," said Pitter. "Then we were in a league where we were very open and very out there."
He still remembers the "unbelievable" abuse that was directed at the team during those early years.
The abuse reached a tipping point when an opposition team kicked down their dressing room door and began singing a homophobic song in their faces.
"They didn't realize our goalkeeper, who was built like Arnold Schwarzenegger, was a fireman from Liverpool," laughs Pitter, who was awarded an MBE in 2011 for his work in combating homophobia. 
"He just jumped out of his seat and charged at the door. They all ran away and locked themselves in their own dressing room."
Pitter sees this as a pivotal moment in the club's history, the moment Stonewall FC's players sent out the message that they wouldn't be bullied. 
Fast forward to 2018 and Pitter is still a big part of the set-up at Stonewall FC. He currently plays for the third-team but has resisted the temptation to make a cameo appearance on Friday.
Instead, he's just "honored" that the club is preparing for a trip of a lifetime.
"I think of all those people who made those steps for us a lot easier. We are now open, we are playing in the Middlesex County League and now we're going to Wembley," he said. 

Rainbow laces

Stonewall set up the Rainbow Laces campaign in 2013, initially sending rainbow colored laces to football clubs across the UK to promote inclusion of the LGBT community in sport.
With the support of the FA and other governing bodies, top sport teams have again taken part in the campaign, with rainbow laces, corner flags and captains' armbands on display.
There is a sense that the football world is finally tackling discrimination in the right way and that there are avenues to report homophobic incidents.
"There is loads of work being done behind the scenes to address the situation," said current first-team captain Jay Lemonius, who also works for the Stonewall charity.
"LGBT people are not the ones who are going to make these changes though, it's all down to allies. Whether that's wearing rainbow laces, challenging abuse or reporting abuse whenever they hear it."

A recent rise of homophobia

Even so, Stonewall FC's players have still experienced occasional homophobia this season.
This is perhaps unsurprising, considering 7,194 homophobic hate crimes were reported to police between April 2015 and March 2016 in England and Wales. 
Along with club captain Doug Edward, Pitter believes recent political issues have given people the opportunity to discriminate again -- notably the Brexit vote and Donald Trump's presidency.
"I like using the athlete's foot scenario," Pitter said.
"When you get it, you treat it and it disappears but then it's just under the surface. You go back to relaxing and it just comes back."
There is also yet to be an openly gay player playing in the top-flight of the game, with France's World Cup forward Olivier Giroud recently saying it was "impossible" for someone to come out in the professional game.
"If a player comes out now, it will be an experiment to see what happens and I don't think anyone has been brave enough to take that leap of faith and I really don't blame them," said Pitter.

More Than Half of British People Think Anti- LGBT Language in Sport Events is Wrong

More than half of British people think it is important that anti-LGBT language is challenged at sporting events, but only a quarter are willing to do it.
The survey of more than 1,000 adults by LGBT charity Stonewall concluded that there was a group of "hesitant allies" who want to make the sport more inclusive.
Kick it Out figures said reports of homophobic or transphobic abuse in football had risen over the last year.
Stonewall said: "Sport is one of our strongest tools for social change."
Kirsty Clarke, Stonewall's director of sport, added: "That's why it's so powerful to see so many people wanting to do more to support LGBT people and challenge anti-LGBT abuse in sport.
"Our work won't be finished until every lesbian, gay, bi and trans person, from fans to players, are accepted without exception."
Wasp's James Haskel
 According to Kick it out, reports of homophobic or transphobic abuse in football have risen 9% from 102 cases in 2016-17 to 111 in 2017-18.
But Clarke said part of that reflected the new-found confidence of fans to report discrimination. She also said awareness had improved thanks to strategies such as the Rainbow Laces campaign, which is running until 7 December and will be highlighted at Premier League games this weekend. 
Part of the problem in football surrounds homophobic chanting, but Clarke said more research was needed about the types of abuse inside and outside stadiums. 
And she said there should be no difference in challenging abuse whether it originates from an individual or a group. 
"If it's homophobic, it's homophobic whether it's an individual saying it or if it's a chant. The more support we give staff and stewards to tackle this is key," Clarke added. 
"There are questions about confidence and the tribal nature of football. How do individuals feel about challenging their own fans?
"There is a real desire to change some of those systemic cultural elements but there needs to be more confident in how they do that. There needs to be greater communication about what that abuse sounds and looks like."
After the likes of the Rainbow Laces campaign, and improved relationships with the Football Association, the Premier League and the EFL, Clarke said football was "more inclusive, but there is lots still to do".
Men's professional football is yet to see a player come out, for example. 
Clarke added: "We can't be complacent. We need local allies and those who support the message. 
"I'd like to think that we will get to a point where these cases [of abuse] won't be there."

Trump Moscow Tower Plans Occurred Latter Than Thought and Closer To Election According to Cohen




 Moscow. Plans
 Michael D. Cohen, President Trump’s former lawyer and fixer, admitted in court on Thursday that he had engaged in negotiations to build a tower in Moscow for Mr. Trump well into the 2016 presidential campaign, far later than previously known.
Mr. Cohen said he discussed the status of the project with Mr. Trump on more than three occasions and briefed Mr. Trump’s family members about it. He also admitted he agreed to travel to Russia for meetings on the project.
The revelations, which came as Mr. Cohen pleaded guilty to lying to Congress, were a startling turn in the special counsel’s investigation of Mr. Trump and his inner circle.

Mr. Cohen’s guilty plea comes at a particularly perilous time for Mr. Trump, whose presidency has been threatened by Mr. Cohen’s statements to investigators. In recent days, the president and his lawyers have 
increased their attacks on the Justice Department and the special counsel’s office.

After Mr. Cohen’s plea, Mr. Trump said his former fixer was once again lying in order to get a reduced sentence for the crimes he pleaded guilty to earlier this year.
“He was convicted of various things unrelated to us,” Mr. Trump said, adding, “He’s a weak person and what he’s trying to do is get a reduced sentence.”
Mr. Trump made his comments to reporters as he left Washington for an economic summit in Argentina.
At a surprise federal court hearing in Manhattan, Mr. Cohen admitted that he had minimized Mr. Trump’s role in efforts to build a Trump Tower in Moscow and gave the false impression to Congress that the negotiations had ended in January 2016, just before the Iowa caucuses.
In fact, Mr. Cohen admitted, the negotiations continued for at least another five months, until June. He also admitted he agreed in early May to travel to Russia for meetings on the project.

Mr. Cohen also asked Mr. Trump about the possibility of him traveling to Russia for meetings on the deal, despite telling Congressional investigators that he had not done so. The trips never happened.
Mr. Cohen concluded his statement in court, saying: “I made these misstatements to be consistent with Individual 1’s political messaging and out of loyalty to Individual 1.”
“Individual 1” is President Trump, officials said.
The new guilty plea in Federal District Court marks the first time the office of the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, has charged Mr. Cohen. In exchange for pleading guilty and continuing to cooperate with Mr. Mueller, he may hope to receive a lighter sentence than he otherwise would.
Mr. Cohen, 52, had already pleaded guilty to eight charges, including campaign finance, bank and tax crimes, brought by federal prosecutors in Manhattan. He is scheduled to be sentenced for those crimes in two weeks.
This week, Mr. Mueller accused Mr. Trump’s onetime campaign manager, Paul Manafort, of repeatedly lying to investigators in breach of a plea agreement. And Mr. Trump’s lawyers recently submitted his written responses to questions from Mr. Mueller, who the president accused on Tuesday of operating a “Phony Witch Hunt.”
It was just three months ago that Mr. Cohen, pleading guilty for the first time, stood up in a different Manhattan courtroom and accused Mr. Trump of directing hush-money payments during the 2016 campaign to conceal potential sex scandals. Those payments formed the basis of the campaign finance charges against Mr. Cohen.

French judges have ordered far-right politician Jean-Marie Le Pen to pay thousands of euros in damages for remarks about homosexuals, including a about a verbal attack on a police officer killed in a terror attack in 2017.
 Penfounded the far-right National Front, which was renamed National Rally (RN)under the presidency of his daughter Marine in 2018, was condemned on three counts of public insult and one count of incitement to hate or violence.
In a March 2016 blog video, Le Pen said there was a link between “the exaltation of homosexuality” and paedophilia.
In December 2016, asked by a journalist about homosexuals in the party he cofounded, he said “it’s like salt with soup: if there is not enough, it’s too bland, and if it’s too much, it’s undrinkable”.
Judges decided the qualification of incitement to hate applied in this remark.
For each remark Le Pen was condemned to pay 10 euros per day for 40 days with the possibility of imprisonment in case of non-payment.
He was also ordered to pay 2000 euros in damages and interests to anti-discrimination group Mousse and an additional 2000 euros in fees.
The politician was also judged for comments about Xavier JugelĂ©, a police officer killed during a terror attack on the Champs-ElysĂ©es Avenue in Paris.
“I think this particularity of his family has to be separated from this sort of ceremony,” remarked Le Pen on the fact that JugelĂ©’s male companion spoke at a state tribute to the fallen officer.
For those remarks, Le Pen was given a second fine of 10 euros per day for 40 days, 5,000 euros in damages and interest to JugelĂ©’s widow, and 2000 euros in fees.
Le Pen indicated through his lawyer that he would appeal the rulings
