  1. Roger Stone:

    I talk to a lot of reporters on a background, and sometimes off the record, basis. Sometimes, when I say to them, 'Where did you get this hit piece of information on Trump?' They'll tell me, 'Oh, a source at the Republican National Committee.' Come on. This is the game. It's the way it works.
