Longtime GOP strategist Roger Stone has been recorded making threatening comments about former President Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, including beating him up, according to previously unheard recordings.

Stone, Trump’s longest-serving political adviser, blamed Kushner for failing to secure pardons for himself, his associates and fellow Trump allies on his father-in-law’s last day in office, The Washington Post reported citing the recordings.

Stone later ranted to Enrique Alejandro, his employee, and suggested they give Kushner a beating for his failure.

“In two weeks he’s moving to Miami,” Stone said, according to a recording obtained by The Washington Post. “He’s going to get a beating. He needs to have a beating. And needs to be told, ‘This time we’re just beating you. Next time we’re killing you.’”

Stone’s “pardon wish list” included names of various other felons, such as Michael Sessa and Victor Orena. Both figures were the former acting boss and captain of the Colombo crime family in New York. They are currently serving life sentences after being convicted for murder and racketeering in the 1990s.

The former Trump adviser was also recorded suggesting that Kushner needed to be punished in the “most brutal way,” during a Jan. 20, 2021, phone call with a friend of his named Tom, The Post reported.

“[Kushner would be] brain dead when I get finished with him,” he said.

The recordings were obtained by The Post after it reviewed 20 hours of footage from Danish camera crew who filmed Stone for two years for the upcoming documentary, “A Storm Foretold.” The Danish filmmakers captured interviews, fly-on-the-wall footage and candid off-camera conversations. They also recorded footage showing views of Stone’s iPhone screen as he exchanged messages with associates through an encrypted app.

Stone, who was himself pardoned by Trump in December 2020, was known for his capacity for “dirty tricks” when he was campaigning for former President Richard Nixon in the early 1970s.

Stone had also served briefly in Trump’s presidential campaign in 2016. In the few months he spent on the former president’s campaign, Stone had spun reporters, peddled conspiracy theories and collaborated with WikiLeaks in releasing damaging information about then-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. He was convicted on charges of obstruction, making false statements and witness tampering.
