I remember the morning when the key witness in the Roger Stone trial, Randy Credico, sent me the violent and threatening note he just received from Roger Stone. Other threats followed.
I told Randy, “Stop protecting this guy. Roger is dangerous, a psychopathic narcissist. And he is certainly not your friend.”
Credico finally saw the light when Stone threatened little Bianca, Randy’s therapy dog.
That was it. And now Stone, convicted today, faces 20 years in prison for threatening Bianca (and Randy).
Weirdly, both Roger Stone and I employed Randy for his brilliant ability to do impressions. George Bush’s voice in the audio version of Amed Madhouse is Credico.
And both Stone and I were guests on Credico’s radio show on WBAI, which for several weeks Credico co-hosted by Julian Assange. (WBAI fired Credico, a great loss for New York. But that’s another story.)
