A new video has come to light showing a first-hand look into former Trump adviser Robert Stone’s reaction when he learned he would not be pardoned by Trump for his actions surrounding the events of Jan. 6.

In the video, Stone was shown traveling in a car on President Joe Biden’s inauguration day visibly enraged by former President Trump’s decision.

“Jared Kushner has an IQ of 70. He’s coming to Miami. We will eject him from Miami very quickly; he will be leaving very quickly,” Stone said, visibly irked. “He has 100 security guards. I will have 5,000 security guards. You want to fight. Let’s fight. F*** you, f*** you and your abortionist b**** daughter.”

The “abortionist b**** daughter” retort referred to Ivanka Trump, filmmaker Christoffer Guldbrandsen, who was part of a Danish camera crew that filmed the clip. The clip is part of an unreleased documentary titled A Storm Foretold. The team followed Stone around for roughly two years, according to The Washington Examiner.

Jan. 6 committee member reportedly hand-selected the clip from the documentary but opted not to show the footage during public hearings.

Stone previously tapped members of the Proud Boys for protection. The Danish filmmakers also filmed him meeting with the Oath Keepers — something that the Jan. 6 committee showcased during its public hearings. Members of both right-wing groups have faced charges for their activity in the run-up to the Capitol riot. Stone has not.

“Any claim or assertion that I was involved at any time in any effort of any kind by any person or group to delay, hinder or otherwise obstruct the certification of presidential electors by Congress, pursuant to the Constitution of the United States, is also categorically false,” Stone said in a statement following the public hearing Thursday.

Trump had previously commuted a sentence against Stone for alleged obstruction of congressional inquiries into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election which former president later promoted to a full pardon. However, Stone was reportedly expecting to receive a second pardon to shield him from potential prosecution over the 2020 election.

Stone has threatened to file a $25 million lawsuit against Guldbrandsen and his film partner, per the Daily Beast.
