Roger Stone believes criminal charges against Donald Trump are now a certainty, and is predicting indictments will land ‘by the 4th of July’.
The political dirty trickster and longtime Trump ally said the multiple criminal investigations currently swirling around Trump, members of his family and the Trump Organization would inevitably lead to charges.
‘I would be shocked if they did not come forward with a fabricated indictment for bank fraud or tax fraud against the former president [Donald Trump] by Manhattan District Attorney,’ Stone told Infowars host Alex Jones.
‘If they want to go after the president on fabricated charges, then we will establish that this is a partisan witch hunt.’
Stone continued that prosecutors would try to time the indictments to coincide with the conclusion of an audit into the Arizona 2020 election results.
New York Attorney General Letitia James and Manhattan District Attorney are investigating Trump for artificially inflating the value of his properties for tax purposes and fraudulently paying hush money to two women prior to the 2016 election.
Last week Trump tore into the criminal probe into his business dealings and attacked James for her ‘witch hunt’ that he claims has been going on for years.

The political dirty trickster and longtime Trump advisor told Infowars’ Alex Jones investigations by the New York attorney general and Manhattan district attorney were ‘witch hunts’
Speaking on Infowars on Saturday, Stone said the investigations into Trump’s business affairs were a sham.
‘They’re allowed to root through this man’s business record of forty years, in which he built a real estate empire second to none, combing for a crime, they have no evidence of a crime, they no probable cause,’ Stone said.
‘It is disgraceful, but I do think it is going to happen.’
He speculated that confirmation of charges could be times to coincide with the results of an ongoing audit in Maricopa County into the Arizona 2020 elections.
When Jones suggested the indictment would land ‘on or around July 4, to really rub it into our faces as a declaration of their takeover, the Chinese takeover of America,’ Stone agreed.
Stone, a longtime advisor and staunch defender of the former president, was pardoned by Trump in December last year after being convicted of lying to Congress, witness tampering and obstructing the House investigation into whether Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia to win the 2016 election.
Last week, prosecutors obtained dozens of land deal records relating to Trump’s Seven Springs estate, a 60-room sandstone chateau in downstate New York.
The estate, which has a forecourt and fountain, also boasts three pools, carriage houses and even a suspected bat population on the grounds.
Trump bought the property for only $7.5 million in 1996 and valued it at $291 million in 2012.
Three New York towns have turned over dozens of documents relating to the failed development of a luxury golf course on the property.
On May 19, James announced her previously civil probe into Trump world had become a criminal one, and she was joining with Manhattan DA Cy Vance’s existing investigation.
On Sunday, it emerged New York prosecutors are probing whether the Trump Org inflated certain land value in order to gain a massive $21.1 million charitable tax write-off.
Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg is also a key focus of Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance’s investigation into Trump’s financial dealings.

Trump denies any wrongdoing but the escalated investigation increased the chances he and possibly members of his family could face criminal charges.
In a lengthy statement released after James’ office said they were working alongside the Manhattan district attorney in an ongoing criminal fraud investigation into the Trump Organization, the former president told prosecutors to instead focus on ‘real crimes’ and pointed out soaring rates of violence in New York City.
The former president said the probe was another example of a Democrat witch hunt against him and said the way he is being treated wouldn’t be tolerated in a third world country.
‘There is nothing more corrupt than an investigation that is in desperate search of a crime. But, make no mistake, that is exactly what is happening here,’ he wrote.
‘The Attorney General of New York literally campaigned on prosecuting Donald Trump even before she knew anything about me.’
She said that if elected, she would use her office to look into ‘every aspect’ of my real estate dealings. She swore that she would ‘definitely sue’ me. She boasted on video that she would be, and I quote, ‘a real pain in the ass.’
