Republican dirty trickster Roger Stone talks about Donald Trump’s future...and who’s killing his dogs


AS DONALD TRUMP’S presidential campaign staggers toward what looks to be a catastrophic loss, politicos in both parties are snickering that the careers of his advisers and strategists have been trashed. But at least one of them, legendary Republican dirty trickster Roger Stone, has big plans for life after Trump, including writing a book about the Donald.

TRICKY DICK OBSESSED: Stone has multiple posters of Nixon in his apartment and a tattoo of the former president on his back.

There are vicious fighters like Stone, who has honed his black arts for 40 years, in both political parties. Some are well-known public figures who clean up their language for TV; others steer clear of the limelight. Off -camera, their favorite word is “rat-fuck,” and their favorite feeling is the satisfaction of revenge. A notorious dandy (bespoke suits and two-tone suede spectator shoes), the 64-year-old is as proud of his vast tie collection as he is of his hair plugs and bodybuilder physique. He also possesses something that gave me a moderately unprofessional and completely juvenile reason for wishing to meet him. I badly wanted him to remove his shirt so I could photograph the tattoo on his back of Richard Nixon.

About Newsweek International

TRUMP'S MISSING EMAILS Over the course of decades, Donald Trump’s companies have systematically destroyed or hidden thousands of emails, digital records and paper documents demanded in official proceedings, often in defiance of court orders. These tactics, exposed by a Newsweek review of thousands of pages of court lings, judicial orders and a davits from an array of court cases, have enraged judges, prosecutors, opposing lawyers and the many ordinary citizens entangled in litigation with Trump. In each instance, Trump and entities he controlled also erected numerous hurdles that made lawsuits drag on for years, forcing courtroom opponents to spend huge sums of money in legal fees as they struggled sometimes in vain to obtain records.
