A day after his ex-business partner rallied Republicans to support Hillary Clinton’s bid for the White House, Donald Trump supporter Roger Stone took a swipe at the Democratic front-runner .  

Craig Snyder, a Republican lobbyist with Ikon Public Affairs, Stone’s former firm, began working to gin up support for a “Republicans for Hillary” campaign this week via email.

Stone sent some of the same recipient a competing email, which was obtained by CQ Roll Call and confirmed by two sources.  

“Before anyone signs up for Republicans for Hillary, I strongly suggest you read ‘The Clintons’ War on Women’ by Roger Stone,” stated the email, signed by Stone. “This carefully documented and footnoted book will shock and disgust you.”  

Stone, who lobbied for the Trump Organization in 1999 during his time at Ikon, did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment.
