Roger Stone may have just committed libel on a former President of the United States, and no, it isn’t the first time. But it is the most publicly explicit.
On the latest edition of conservative commentator and Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos’s podcast, Stone minced no words in characterizing Bill Clinton as a rapist.
The remarks start early in the 40-minute interview, and it seems like if the Clintons wanted a day in court with Stone, they would have a case.
Roger began by challenging the idea that Hillary Clinton is a feminist, which he felt was justified given the “years of her attacking and intimidating and bullying her husband’s sexual assault victims — oops, I just said it.”
“The former President is a serial rapist. The difference between Bill Cosby and Bill Clinton is that Cosby drugs his women victims while Bill likes to physically overpower and bite his. I’m not making this up.”
For the sake of Roger Stone’s bank account, he’d better hope that is true. According to the official definition of libel, it is a tort-worthy action that occurs by publishing a false statement that is damaging to a person’s reputation.”
While first characterized as a written defamation, it has since been expanded to include remarks made on a television or radio program.
Oral defamation is called “slander,” and is much harder to prove, but given the public nature of Milo Yiannopoulos’s podcast, the accusation Roger Stone made on the episode would definitely be actionable since the former President Clinton has never been tried and convicted of any such crimes as what he is being accused of here.

That doesn’t mean there have been zero accusations, however, as Roger Stone pointed out on the episode. In all, he said, there are 27 women who have come forward, “and there will be more shortly who have contacted me, who are ready to come forward, who say that Bill savagely assaulted them, bit their upper lips, in some cases raped them, in some cases they were able to escape.”
After the alleged assaults or encounters, Stone charged, the former President “would then stalk them afterwards.”
As for Hillary’s culpability in the alleged sexual assaults, Roger Stone said the former First Lady, U.S. Senator, Secretary of State, and current Democratic nominee for President’s infractions were “even worse because she would target these women.”
“She would hire private detectives to dig up dirt on them. She would have them harassed on a daily basis, meaning they were followed, their next door neighbors would be apprised that they might commit suicide anytime. Their pets were killed, their children were threatened. Their cars were vandalized. That’s Hillary Clinton, the feminist. She’s not an advocate for women. She’s an abuser of women.”
PREVIOUS ROGER STONE COVERAGE FROM THE INQUISITR:
Perhaps sensing some blowback from the highly charged episode, Yiannopoulos admitted that some of the charges were “extraordinary,” but acknowledged that the accusations he had read made for “compelling reports.”
Still, he agreed on Stone’s point about Hillary because it showed “hypocrisy” on her part and the kind of character that should make her “ineligible for President.”
“It’s quite dark, quite scary stuff,” Yiannopoulos said.
This isn’t the first time that Roger Stone has outright called Bill Clinton a rapist. In fact, during the Republican National Convention, he actually put the accusation on a shirt along with the below image.

For all these reasons, Stone believes Trump is the most qualified to be President, and that “unlike with Hillary, there aren’t two Trumps. What you see is what you get,” he said.
But what do you think, readers? Should Bill and Hillary Clinton pursue a libel lawsuit against Roger Stone for outright claiming the former President of the United States rapes women, or are the charges not worth answering? Sound off in the comments section below.
