Political Trickster Roger Stone Wants To Testify; Hires Three South Florida Attys




Roger Stone, a Donald Trump confidant who reportedly had discussions with Russian hackers during last year’s campaign, has hired three local lawyers and asked to appear before the House Intelligence Committee.

A famed political figure who has been involved in campaign strategy and so-called “dirty tricks” since President Richard Nixon’s candidacy, Stone was the subject of questions during a committee hearing earlier this week.

Published reports indicate that Stone is part of several investigations into whether Trump associates were involved in attempts by Russians to interfere in the campaign of Hillary Clinton. The FBI and congressional committees are interested in whether Stone had knowledge about upcoming revelations by WikiLeaks during the 2016 election.


Here is a letter Stone’s attorney Robert Buschel sent to the House committee today (click to enlarge):






Stones’ three South Florida attorneys are below.

All three lawyers along with Stone are connected to the law firm of jailed Ponzi scammer Scott Rothstein.  None were charged or accused of wrongdoing in that multi-million dollar fraud:

  • Robert Buschel, a Fort Lauderdale lawyer who specializes in defending clients under investigation by governments.  Buschel once represented Broward Elections Supervisor Miriam Oliphant when she came under fire for failing to properly conduct the 2002 election. Buschel represented Oliphant before she was removed from office. He recently wrote a political thriller By Silent Majority. Buschel worked at the Rothstein firm.

  • Grant Smith, a Fort Lauderdale lawyer. The son of former Hollywood Democratic Congressman Larry Smith (1983-1993), Grant Smith runs his own lobbying and corporate strategy firm.  He was a manager at Rothstein’s law firm.

  • Kendall  Coffey, theU. S. Attorney for South Florida from 1993-1996, who has had a role in such high profile cases as the custody battle over  Elian Gonzalez, the Cuban child spirited to the United States and then returned to the Communist nation after a court battle. Coffey represented the Rothstein, Rosenfeldt and Adler firm after Rothstein’s arrest for fraud. Coffey also represented President Trump’s  campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, when he was accused of battery on a reporter during last year’s campaign. Charges against Lawandowski were dropped.

    Mr.Stone seems to think that this whole investigation by the FBI is a joke and they are just out to smear him etc. Obviously the bunch of them are under investigation(never a good thing, no matter how much Mr.Stone wants us all to think this is all a bunch of sore losers. Don’t forget you have the CIA (former director brennan hates all of them inc and esp. Pres.Trump). So w/ the aide of the CIA the FBI as told by Director Comey that fish will fry. Will see. Mr.Stone think sthis is all games. When you are facing 10/20 years in the big house then maybe you won’t think its all a joke. My guess one of them, maybe Mr.Stone will snitch. Always the pattern. Alot of people are watchin how this plays out(Hi Judy) Mr.Stone so i would be cautious.One lawyer he retained has an office outof a po box at UPS(401-its no secret that i have a box there as well-referring to Smith(esq). The other two he reatined Coffey and Bushel can’t be cheap. Will see how this plays out….

    Guess you’ve never met Stone.

    I think that Mr. Stone is well represented. For anyone to actually believe that Hillary Clinton lost for any reason other than the fact she was a seriously flawed candidate is ludicrous. The dems obviously thought it was “Hillary’s Turn”. They made the call and we all have to live with the result. Mr. Stone says he has nothing to hide and is willing to testify without subpoena. That has to count for something.

    Stone lives in a completely stonecentric universe.

    Geez Buddy, you sure know how to make a guy feel old. I can remember when Larry Smith went to jail and Kendall Coffey bit a stripper on the ass. Roger Stone is as crooked as hillbilly teeth. In the end, it all evens out.

    Doesn’t anyone else find it interesting that as always there is a Broward connection to the worlds insanity? Wasn’t Stone part is the Scott Israel machine against Lamberti in 2012. How many folks in that office are connected to his dirty tricks and whatever else he’s up to?


    Yes, Roger Stone was “connected” to the campaign of Sheriff Scott Israel in 2012.

    # 5 your right. Anyhow, i thought Gen.Flynn would snitch for the immunity. Well FBI states don’t need him. In other words they have their case. They don’t need to let Flynn off th e hook for spilling the beans,which means they have enough. FBI wants the whole bunch. No deal for the General. And this Jared Kushner (Pres.Trump apple of his eye) is next..Will see. Those that are in the know and have dealings w/ Stone speak softly because either his phones are tapped or he’s gonna wear a wire. Or maybe Stone will get off because the gov’t case is weak and he’ll skate, wishful thinking? I don’t know. I say round them all up like one big cattle call and see what they all say…..
