Longtime Trump associate Roger Stone was arrested at his home in Florida on seven counts including lying about his communications with Credico and Jerome Corsi over supposed second-hand communications and efforts to communicate with Julian Assange of Wikileaks. This is more of the Mueller witch hunt and has nothing to do with collusion but just Stone’s effort at opposition research which is not illegal.
A breakdown of all seven indictments:
-Stone is charged with one count of obstructing House Intel Committee investigation
-Five counts of lying to the committee
-One count of trying to get another witness (Randy Credico) to lie to the committee
Mueller’s team is at it again with a Friday arrest of someone who is connected to our president. The Mueller team has reached a new low with this ridiculous stunt.
Of course, CNN has an exclusive report complete with video of Stone’s arrest:
This is horrible. The FBI arrives and says “FBI, Open the door.” The FBI agents are acting like Stone is some mass murderer they’ve been hunting down. The should be embarrassed at how they’ve treated Roger Stone. This is similar to how Paul Manafort was treated. Shameful!
“FBI. Open the door.”

If you’ve been following the Mueller investigation, you’ve got to be shaking your head. This is a total PR stunt on a Friday morning complete with FBI agents wearing flak jackets and brandishing their weapons. What a sham!
