With his new book and video project, can Roger Stone get any lower?

Roger Stone, the one-time Nixon aide and self-professed dirty trickster, reemerged this past year as a prominent political player, first as an adviser to Donald Trump's presidential campaign and then, after departing Team Trump, as the billionaire's most passionate advocate in the media. (After the second GOP debate, Stone proclaimed that Trump had a "shining moment" in that 11-person face-off when he slammed the Iraq War, and he dismissed Trump antagonist Carly Fiorina as "strident.") Now Stone is getting deep into the muck with the release of a book apparently designed to smear the Clintons -- by depicting Bill as a serial rapist, Hillary as an enabler, and both members of the power couple as a diabolical duo bent on destroying anyone who stands in their way. The book, The Clintons' War on Women, will be released in mid-October. Promotional material for it claims, that "this stunning expose reveals for the first time how Bill and Hillary Clinton systematically abused women and others -- sexually, physically, and psychologically -- in their scramble for power and wealth." Moreover, Stone tells me that this personal destruction campaign will extend beyond the book: He has taped interviews of the supposed victims of the Clintons and will release a video sometime before the 2016 primaries begin.

In a July column, Stone provided a preview of the book, claiming, "The Clintons' activities have included Bill's physical rape and sexual assaults on women and Hillary's degradation and psychological rape of women that Bill has assaulted. 'Sluts,' 'whores,' 'bitches,' Hillary has called them, blaming and shaming them for the unwanted physical attentions and violence of her husband."

The book is being put out by Skyhorse Publishing, which has issued scores of books written by John Kennedy assassination conspiracy theorists, including Stone's own tome on the subject, The Man Who Killed Kennedy: The Case Against LBJ. (Stone contends that Lyndon Johnson was the driving force behind a conspiracy by the CIA, the mafia, and Big Oil in Texas to murder Kennedy.)
