Roger Stone, the combative political consultant and former adviser to President Donald Trump, on Friday launched a foul-mouthed tirade on CNN stars such as Don Lemon, Jake Tapper and Ann Navarro as “human excrement.”

The Twitter rant came as the network exclusively reported that a grand jury in Washington, D.C., had approved the first charges in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

Stone launched a NSFW attack on the CNN figures reporting the news, singling out anchor Don Lemon as “a buffoon,” an “ignorant lying c—sucker,” and “dumb piece of s—.”

He also called for Lemon — who this week reported death threats made against him to the New York Police Department — to “be confronted, humiliated, mocked and punished.”

Stone, a long-time Trump supporter and former member of Richard Nixon’s administration, demanded that Tapper also be “very severely punished” and referred to Republican consultant and frequent CNN contributor Ann Navarro as a “dumbf—.”

He also suggested that there would be a “swift” “house cleaning” at the network once AT&T completes its planned merger with CNN parent company Time Warner.

On Friday, the network reported that the first people charged in the Russia probe could be taken into custody as early as Monday, citing sources who had been briefed on the charges.

The charges, as well as the identities of those charged, remain under seal from a federal judge.
