Before Roger Stone made headlines Friday for becoming the sixth adviser or aide to Donald Trump to be indicted since special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe began, the long-time Republican political operative’s exploits during the 2016 presidential campaign were chronicled in the Netflix documentary “Get Me Roger Stone.”
The documentary seeks to demonstrate how Stone fashioned Donald Trump’s entire approach to politics over their decades-long relationship, and examines Stone’s political philosophies which are laid out as “Stone’s rules.”
The documentary’s directors, Morgan Pehme, Daniel DiMauro, and Dylan Bank, spent years following and interviewing Stone in the run-up to the 2016 election and the hack of Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
Stone is accused of lying about his alleged attempts to get emails hacked from Clinton campaign chair John Podesta.
“I think it was a long time coming. Mueller had been encircling Roger for some time, and Roger had even anticipated that he would be indicted at some point and yet it stretched on for so long, it seemed like it might be another addition to the legend of Roger Stone. That he could even escape the Mueller probe,” the documentary’s co-director, Morgan Pehme, told “CBS This Morning: Saturday.”
