The feud between longtime Republican trickster Roger Stone and MAGA operative Steve Bannon took a serious turn on Sunday after Stone leveled a major accusation against Bannon over his role in the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.
Earlier this week, Bannon pleaded the Fifth in front of the House select committee investigating the deadly insurrection. But Stone threw him under the bus Sunday morning.
According to The Daily Beast, Stone took to the far-right messaging platform Telegram to suggest Bannon was behind the call to “breach” the Capitol building on Jan 6. “It is highly likely that [Steve] Bannon really gave the order to breach the capital [sic] and maneuvered patriots into dangerous positions,” he wrote.
“A neophyte Steve Bannon was willing to try crazy things like this to curry favor with Trump who had a [sic] no interest in Bannon’s bullsh*t,” he added.
The Beast noted that Stone has long been at odds with Bannon for “testify[ing] falsely” against him during his criminal trial.
