Recently FBI agents stormed the house of former Trump advise Roger Stone at 6 a.m in the morning. There were 27 agents fully loaded with ammunition and heavy guns and flak jackets and 17 cars with lights flashing to arrest one man. There were no guns in the house, he doesn’t have a permit and doesn’t own any guns and he is not a flight risk. The only ones in house were his wife, two dogs and three cats. He was still in his nightwear. So why such a horrifying raid in the pre-dawn hours? This is the type of raid reserved for a heavily armed wanted terrorist. This was done under the order of Robert Mueller and curiously CNN was there to cover the raid. Who tipped them off?
CNN was the only news outlet to capture footage of Trump-confidant Roger Stone’s arrest Friday morning, raising allegations that they were tipped off to the impending raid by the FBI or the grand jury handling the case.
CNN employees, however, claimed that the producer, David Shortell, noticed “unusual activity” by the special counsel’s grand jury in DC and guessed that a Stone indictment was incoming. They seemed to deny that he was exclusively tipped off by anyone in the special counsel’s office.
The completely unnecessary raid is a routine that is straight out of a third-world police state. There is no defense of such an excessive show of force.
Stone was arrested early Friday morning at his home in Fort Lauderdale, Florida after being indicted by a grand jury on charges brought by special counsel Robert Mueller. Dramatic footage captured by a lucky CNN producer shows the FBI surrounding Stone’s home in an armed raid and pounding on Stone’s front door.
Soon after his arrest, Stone returned home late Friday night, many hours after FBI agents arrested him at his Fort Lauderdale residence in a pre-dawn raid related to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe.
In comments before heading inside, Stone insisted he is innocent of the obstruction and other charges against him and said he wouldn’t need a pardon from President Trump because he expects to be cleared, according to a report. He called the charges a fabricated indictment as thin as can be.
A 24-page indictment alleges Stone, 66, worked to obstruct the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation into Russian interference by making false statements to the committee, denying he had records sought by the committee and persuading a witness to provide false testimony.
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders responded to the Roger Stone news Friday in an early interview with CNN. Sanders wondered if the same standards the FBI is employing with Stone would apply to other players in the 2016 election who have lied to the FBI.
When asked by CNN about the recent arrest, Sanders said, “We’ll let the courts make the decision. A bigger question is: If this is the standard, will the same standard apply to people like Hillary Clinton, James Comey and [James] Clapper?”
Sanders continued, asking, “Will we see the same people we know have all made false statements? Will that same standard apply? That’s a question we’ll see what happens on that front.”
There are many more names that can be added to Sarah’s list, people like Rod Rosenstein, Loretta Lynch, Susan Rice, John Brennan, Lisa Page and Peter Strzok.
President Donald Trump responded Saturday to news of his confidant Roger Stone’s Friday indictment with a list of Democrats and justice officials he wants to see in trouble for alleged lying.
“If Roger Stone was indicted for lying to Congress, what about the lying done by [James] Comey, [John] Brennan, [James] Clapper, Lisa Page [and] lover, [James] Baker and soooo many others? What about Hillary [Clinton] to FBI and her 33,000 deleted Emails? What about Lisa [and Peter Strzok’s] deleted texts [and Anthony Weiner’s] laptop? Much more!” Trump wrote Saturday.
The FBI concluded that Clinton had been “extremely careless” in using a private email server, language that rebuked the former secretary of state but did not carry legal weight. Ex-FBI Director Comey, also mentioned in Trump’s Saturday tweet, had considered Clinton’s handling classified information on her private email account to be “grossly negligent” according to a 2016 memo draft, but the language was later softened.
Gross negligence in the handling of classified information can result in jail time.
So just by changing the wording, she goes free when the actual crime leads to jail time. Disgusting! She deleted 20,000 federally subpoenaed e-mails, bleach bit her hard drive and smashed 13 subpoenaed devices and nothing is done. Any normal person who defied subpoenaed items would be behind bars now.
Even Mueller is not innocent. He was the one who delivered uranium to Putin for Hillary when she sold him 20% of our uranium for 145 million dollars to her foundation.
