Former Trump campaign advisor Roger Stone has broken his silence, following a commutation by President Trump.
But Stone’s rhetoric is not what would be expected from someone who has been through his hellish experience. Instead of vindication towards his accusers, Stone spoke of his faith.
In a recent interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network, Stone told senior political correspondent David Brody that his rekindled faith has given him courage and peace regarding his charges.
Stone attended a prayer retreat last January led by Franklin Graham. At the event, Stone said he stood with others and confessed the sinner’s prayer and immediately felt a burden lifted off of him.
“At that moment, I felt the calling,” Stone says. “I stood up with 500 other people. I wasn’t the slightest bit embarrassed. I confess that I was a sinner. I repeated a pledge that he recited, and it was as if a cement block was lifted off my chest. I can’t even explain it…I was never scared. I was never worried. I was completely confident that the Lord would guide the president to do the right thing.”
Stone dug into the charges slightly, though not enough to derail the focus of his faith-based message:
“I don’t regret anything that I did in 2016 because I didn’t break the law. “They wanted me to lie, to bear false witness against the president in return for some kind of leniency.”
He continued to say that those who led the conspiracy against him were “satanic:”

“I really do believe that those who are trying to undo this president, those who are trying to destroy me, trying to destroy Michael Flynn, who’s a very good man and great American patriot war hero, I do believe they’re satanic.”
Moving forward, Stone says that he is ready for whatever God has for him:
“So, if God has a mission for me, He hasn’t revealed it to me yet, but if He does, I’m ready for duty.”
