In one of the weirder aspects of the Al Franken scandal, it appears that Trump’s crony henchman Roger Stone knew that it was coming down the pike just hours before it hit.
Here’s what he tweeted:
CBS fills in the timeline after the tweet:
Later in the morning, Leeann Tweeden, a TV host, model and sports broadcaster claimed in an article online that that Franken had “kissed and groped” her without her consent during a USO Tour in December 2006.
Tweeden said that Franken wrote a part into a skit for her that said Franken’s character would lean into kiss her. While practicing the skit during a rehearsal, Tweeden said that Franken insisted that they rehearse the kiss. Tweeden wrote that Franken then came at her and “put his hand on the back of my head, mashed his lips against mine and aggressively stuck his tongue in my mouth.”
A photo that accompanied the post showed Franken pretending to grope her chest while it looked like she was asleep on a flight back to the U.S. from Afghanistan.
What makes this even more odd is that he predicted the Podesta email leak by WikiLeaks too. AND he is accused of having private messages with Guccifer 2.0, which the intelligence agencies say is a front for Russian spy agencies. So what the hell is going on here?!?
Some on the left are taking it to mean that there’s a great big conspiracy with Trump-righters like Stone colluding with the Russians. But in this case, Franken admits that he DID harass that woman. So where are the shenanigans exactly?
