Rep. Eric Swalwell and Trump associate
Roger Stone won’t be sharing a glass of
Livermore wine anytime soon.
15TH CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT
It’s not the first time Roger Stone has trash talked with Rep. Eric Swalwell, but on Friday the flamboyant associate of President Donald Trump had some choice words for the East Bay congressmember.
“I mean, have you seen this guy, Eric Swalwell? The lightweight, mannequin, pretty-boy from California?” Stone said on a radio show Friday. “I think he’s a yellow-bellied coward.”
Stone was scheduled to appear next week before the House Intelligence Committee, which Swalwell is a member. However, Stone’s appearance was postponed by the committee until after the August recess, according to Bloomberg.
Stone says he’s itching to testify before the committee, but doesn’t believe Swalwell has the nerve to face him. “I don’t think he will show. But if he does show, he will regret it for the rest of his life,” Stone continued.
Stone and Swalwell have faced-off before. In March, the two exchanged barbs on Twitter.
