Roger Stone Says Media Framed Him With AI-Generated Audio Depicting Him Discussing...

•, by Cassie B.

An audio file has been making the rounds in the media in which political operative and Donald Trump insider Roger Stone can be heard talking about killing Democrat politicians. However, Stone maintains that the audio clip is not authentic and strongly suspects that it was generated using AI – and several AI detecting tools back up his claim.

The controversy began with an article published earlier this month on Mediaite bearing the headline: "Exclusive: Roger Stone Spoke With Cop Pal About Assassinating Eric Swalwell and Jerry Nadler."

In the piece, journalist Diana Falzone maintains that an anonymous source gave her an audio recording in which Stone can be heard saying that some Democratic politicians need to "die before the election" to his friend, former NYPD officer Sal Greco.

This article did not include the recording to back up her claim, so Stone asked her to prove the discussion took place. He told the Daily Mail: "If there is such an audio, why don't they post it? Why won't they send it to me? If there is such an audio, it would have to be illegally obtained and if there is such an audio it would have to be an AI generated fraud since I never said any of the words attributed to me."

Falzone then released what she claimed was the recording given to her by the anonymous source. In the recording, an individual with a voice that sounds like Stone's can be heard stating: "It's time to do it. Let's go find Swalwell. It's time to do it. Then we'll see how brave the rest of them are. It's time to do it. It's either Swalwell or Nadler has to die before the election. They need to get the message. Let's go find Swalwell and get this over with. I'm just not putting up with this shit anymore."
