Roger Stone and his arrest situation are so obvious to anyone with half a brain. This is simply another part of the war against President Trump. CNN is in on it along with the FBI. There was absolutely no reason to do this in this manner. Photo op against our president plain and simple.
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.
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.

The seemingly too-perfect scenario of CNN being the only outlet on scene as the FBI raided Stone’s home sparked allegations that CNN had been tipped off to the arrest. Many wondered why a raid was necessary in the first place — Jordan Schatchel of Blaze TV called the scenario an “excessive show of force.”
You don’t have to be a Roger Stone fan to be horrified by the stunt the FBI pulled off in conspiring with CNN this morning. 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.

Veteran journalists and former MSNBC host Greta Van Susteren tweeted, “CNN either acted on a tip…or had been camped out there,” noting that either scenario is “good journalism.”
Van Susteren also speculated about the decision to raid, questioning, “Fear of flight or destruction of evidence or prosecutors really not like Stone?”
It is no conspiracy – CNN either acted on a tip…or had been camped out there (either is good journalism.) What is most interesting is why it was a raid and not a surrender. Fear of flight or destruction of evidence or prosecutors really not like Stone? https://t.co/zxPtxUzzWE

“Seriously the CNN footage at Stone’s house is fishy,” John Podhoretz of the New York Post wrote.

Tony Shaffer, a retired U.S. Army Reserve Lieutenant Colonel, went a step further and claimed that CNN had “special access to the raid,” calling the footage a “dramatic set up allowed by the FBI.”
No matter how one paints it @cnn had special treatment to get access to the raid – as a volunteer member of law enforcement in VA, media, even if “tipped off” would not be allowed to be anywhere near the execution of a raid – this was a dramatic set up allowed by the @FBI https://t.co/BLjxWyiT0S

All part of the Anti-America, Anti-Trump swamp. Corrupt FBI, still providing access and tools to the CNN Goebbels propaganda machine.
