Roger Stone Throws Down Gauntlet: Wants Debate Against Former Trump Adviser Steve Bannon

Former Trump campaign adviser Roger Stone went on a tear against ex-presidential aide Steve Bannon, urging the right-wing commentator to face off against him in a debate hosted by Infowars’ Alex Jones.

Stone announced the challenge during an appearance on the Alex Jones Show Tuesday where he outlined his beef with Bannon, who he claims stole the name of his show “War Room,” a long-running Infowars program which Stone formerly co-hosted.

“Let’s be very clear. Not only did Steve Bannon steal the name of my Infowars show with the great American Owen Shroyer — The War Room — but he testified falsely at my trial against me. He was an informant for Robert Mueller,” Stone said. “So right now, here, today, I am challenging Steve Bannon to come on Infowars and debate this; let’s have it out. Alex [Jones], you can moderate it, so it stays civil.”

The potential face-off between the two former Trump leaders caught the attention of the media, including leftist rag Salon.

Jones appeared receptive of the idea, highlighting a recent debate hosted by Infowars between Nick Fuentes and Robert Barnes that was seen by millions.

“I want to have debates,” Jones agreed.

“I would let Bannon have his moderator here as well and we could agree upon rules,” Jones added, going on to note Bannon has been “saying some nice things about me.
