Yeah, good luck with that.

The longshot arguments, some of which have already been considered and rejected by judges in the same courthouse, suggest that Mueller’s appointment was unconstitutional because he wasn’t commissioned directly by President Donald Trump. Stone also argues that the Justice Department improperly funded Mueller’s investigation because the pot of money supporting his probe wasn’t explicitly authorized by Congress. He separately contends that he has been selectively targeted by Mueller because of his closeness to Trump.
Stone is facing seven charges connected to his testimony before the House intelligence committee in its investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election and whether any Trump associates participated in the scheme. He faces one charge of obstructing the House prove, five charges of making false statements and a charge of witness intimidation for his communications with another witness, Randy Credico.
In addition to arguing that his indictment should be tossed, Stone is seeking access to the full contents of Mueller’s final report on links between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin, arguing that he has a unique right to see the report and review any evidence it may contain that is relevant to his defense.
“His lawyers must be allowed to review the Report in its entirety because it contains the government’s evidence and conclusions on matters essential to Stone’s defense,” Stone’s attorney Robert Buschel wrote in the filing.
Among Stone’s arguments: Congress never explicitly referred Stone to Mueller for criminal prosecution, suggesting Mueller can’t be sure his alleged false statements were severe enough to impede Congress’ investigation.
It is very unlikely that this will have any success, but I imagine that Stone is desperate to do just about anything to avoid jail time.
And now that Julian Assange is about to be extradited to America Stone must be especially concerned about what might be revealed concerning his interactions with Wikileaks and its founder.
Having said that I hope that Stone is successful in getting his hands on this Mueller report because we certainly know he will not hesitate to blab about it to just about anybody who would listen.
