Roger Stone claimed Tuesday that Jared Kushner, senior adviser and son-in-law to President Trump, is leaking information to MSNBC in order to hurt White House chief strategist Steve Bannon.
Citing unnamed sources, the longtime Trump confidant told Infowars' Alex Jones that Kusher is sending text messages to "Morning Joe" co-host Joe Scarborough.
"The president's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, perhaps the one presidential aide who cannot be fired, is now in regular text-message communications with Joe Scarborough," Stone said. "Many of the anti-Steve Bannon stories that you see, the themes that you see on 'Morning Joe' are being dictated by Kushner."
Stone accused Kushner of feeding "lies and intel" to Scarborough, who then targets Kushner's rivals or those whose are arguing against the "globalist agenda."
These actions are "disserving the president," Stone said, adding that Scarborough is a "badly flawed carrier for this message" and is "bitter with jealousy" because he wanted to run for president.
Stone said the revelation is just the latest in an ongoing behind-the-scenes battle going on in the White House between the establishment wing and the "diminished true believers."
Stone, a former aide to Richard Nixon who has been described as a political dirty trickster, has been a subject of controversy over the years, pushing conspiracy theories that include a Clinton murder ring and that former President Lyndon Johnson was behind the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. He has also been promoting his upcoming book on Trump.
