I’m not a Roger Stone fan – never have been. But his pre-dawn arrest by an FBI SWAT team, in full tactical gear with guns drawn, was disgusting – and a sign of things to come.
A former confident of the president, Stone is charged with white-collar crimes, including (horror of horrors!) lying to Congress.
It would have taken one phone call to his attorney to get him in. Instead, 29 FBI agents in a 17-vehicle convoy, with enough weapons to stage a coup, were sent after him.
Trump tweeted: “Border coyotes, drug dealers and human traffickers are treated better. Who alerted CNN to be there.”
A camera crew from the Clinton News Network just happened to be wandering by Stone’s suburban home to record the spectacle.
Former U.S Attorney for DC, Joseph diGenova said he was:
“appalled that the U.S. Justice Department and the FBI have permitted a vindictive use of arrest in a non-violent case with a defendant who was willing to surrender.”
The object was to maximize Stone’s humiliation and intimidate Trump supporters who refuse to rat on the president. This is the swamp in full flow.
If Democrats win the current power struggle, will there be agents of the FBI-cum-KGB banging on our doors at 6am with weapons drawn?
Are you beginning to get an idea of what’s at stake here?
