Roger Stone and Kevin McCarthy

Washington insider Roger Stone slammed House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy while defending embattled Rep. Madison Cawthorn, who has come under fire from his GOP colleagues for claiming that fellow lawmakers engage in orgies and use cocaine, and saying that he has witnessed it himself.

Speaking with The Washington Examiner, Stone appeared to give credibility to Cawthorn’s allegations, noting that the North Carolina Republican has not publicly walked back his claims.

Cawthorn’s comments sparked fury within the House GOP conference, leading House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and other members of leadership to huddle with the 26-year-old lawmaker Wednesday. Following the meeting, McCarthy told reporters Cawthorn admitted to leaders that he embellished his allegations.

“In the interview, he claims he watched people do cocaine. Now then, when he comes to tell me, he says no — he thinks he saw maybe a staffer in a parking garage from 100 yards away and tells me that he doesn’t know what cocaine is,” McCarthy said, according to The Examiner.

But Stone is not buying McCarthy’s explanation.

“All we have is McCarthy’s version of the conversation, and nothing Kevin McCarthy says can be believed. Why would we believe him? I mean, let Cawthorn speak for himself — not Kevin McCarthy or Steve Scalise,” Stone told the publication, adding that he witnessed similar conduct to what Cawthorn alleged during his time in Washington.

“As someone who lived in Washington, D.C., for 41 years, who was once part of the Washington elite system, everything Madison Cawthorn says is absolutely true,” Stone said. “And I can see why Washington elites would now be scrambling to try to deny it because maybe the voters back home won’t like what they’re hearing.”

“Does anyone really believe that that doesn’t happen? In Washington, in Hollywood, in New York, among elites? I mean, it is — it defies logic. I know for a fact these things happened when I lived there prior to — and this is important — prior to the reaffirmation of my belief in Jesus Christ. I saw these things up close. I’m a different person than I was when I lived in Washington. But I know firsthand that what Cawthorn says is true — it’s true,” he added.
