The arrest of Roger Stone, Trump confidant, in full theatrical mode at dawn – SWAT teams, the lot, has raised ire across the USA:
Tweeters were out in force:
# The fact Stone was arrested by a SWAT team with automatic weapons and night-vision goggles for “witness-tampering” is simply ridiculous. [talk show host Bill Mitchell]
# Roger Stones wife is deaf… They felt the need to go into a full blown SWAT Arrest with FBI agents over a guy who isn’t a flight risk, a threat, and who has cooperated the entire time.
The DOJ is out of control and this is sickening. It’s time to Start Over with the DOJ. [Matt Couch]
CNN was asked why it alone had been given the tip-off by Mueller. They smirked, ‘Reporter’s instinct,’ then changed the story:
# How does someone notice “unusual grand jury activity”? WHAT IS “unusual grand jury activity”? [Tim Young]
# Here’s the absurdity of Stone’s arrest: One of the counts against him is failure to turn over some emails and texts. HILLARY DESTROYED EMAILS, PHONES AND TEXTS WHILE UNDER SUBPOENA! NOT ONE CHARGE! ZERO. Filming his arrest was red meat for liberal MSM. [Als1963]
# The @FBI arrest of Roger Stone at dawn, with dozens of helmeted agents, brandishing weapons, was totally unnecessary. Treated him like El Chapo. Political motives clear w/ @CNN tip-off. [Laura Ingraham]
# I guess it’s just a coincidence that Comey’s former assistant Josh Campbell works for CNN and they just happened to have a van at #RogerStone’s house at 6am. [John Cardillo]
# CNN cameras were at the raid of Roger Stone…so FBI obviously tipped off CNN…even if you don’t like Stone, it is curious why Mueller’s office tipped off CNN instead of trying to quietly arrest Stone; quiet arrests are more likely to be safe to the FBI and the person arrested. [Greta van Susteren]
And so it went on.? Stone had a smirk on his face at the whole theatre, he might not be smirking when he’s strapped into that chair and worked over.
I’ve been trying to get through to as many as possible that these people are nasty in the extreme, they can hurt keyboard and advisory warriors, they really do have no compunction – they never did but now they don’t even bother hiding it.
If you oppose the global agenda, this is what you’re going to get.
The unfortunate thing for the Donald is that this happened at the same time as the end of the shutdown.
Stonewall Jackson concluded:
#??As I keep saying, he can keep the government shut for the remainder of his term, the Dems can’t give him a wall, as it cuts their endless flow of voters. Keeping the Gov shut keeps the ball in Dems hands. He’s exposed them during shutdown, now do National emergency or Exec order.
