Roger Stone, a close confidante of President Donald Trump, spent Friday speaking to CNN's Anderson Cooper about the Russia investigation and the president.
<p>Stone began with a commentary on former aide Sam Nunberg, who has told multiple media outlets about things Stone would pop off about, namely his “lunch” with Wikileaks’ Julian Assange. He described the former aide as a neurotic staffer who would call 30 to 40 times daily. Stone noted that when he didn't answer the phone, Nunberg would “get very agitated.”</p><p>Cooper also brought up Stone's accusations that someone had tried to poison him in the wake of the nerve agent attack on a former Russian double-agent and his daughter in the U.K. <a href="https://www.spectator.co.uk/2017/03/poison-spies-and-lies-a-lunch-with-trumps-old-friend-roger-stone/" rel="noopener" target="_blank">Polonium poisoning</a> is responsible for the death of Alexander Litvinenko, a former officer of the Russian Federal Security Service and KGB.</p><p>“When you are poisoned with polonium you die,” said CNN’s Jim Sciutto later on “AC360.”</p><p>Cooper hammered Stone about the alleged poisoning, which Stone has been speaking about on Infowars for over a year. Stone initially insisted <a href="https://www.rawstory.com/2017/03/trump-ally-roger-stone-says-us-intelligence-tried-to-assassinate-him-in-wednesday-hit-and-run-crash/" rel="noopener" target="_blank">it was the fault of the U.S. intelligence community</a>. On Friday, he said someone was trying to make the alleged poisoning look like the fault of the Russians.</p><p>“My doctor believes I was poisoned,” Stone told Cooper.</p><p>But when pressed about whether he would release medical records or have tests done, Stone refused, saying that people should go to Infowars and see his commentary on it.</p><p>Watch the conversation below:</p><p><iframe class="rm-shortcode" data-rm-shortcode-id="0267d10322d924fe4c9849bcb602a78d" frameborder="0" height="480" scrolling="no" src="https://www.dailymotion.com/embed/video/x6hfvdd" width="100%"></iframe></p>
