President Trump tweeted angrily in response to a CNN report Wednesday morning that pointed to Roger Stone, a controversial longtime ally, as being among those advising Trump to fire James B. Comey as FBI director.
The Los Angeles Times spoke with Stone on Tuesday night. And, while he would not reveal the contents of his conversations with Trump, he certainly sounded happy.
CNN, citing a source, said Stone told Trump that Comey should be fired. That would be significant. Not only is Stone known for pushing Trump's hardest political edges, but he is also frequently mentioned as a potential target in the FBI's investigation of Russian meddling in the election.
