St. Louis, MO: This morning the country saw news that Roger Stone, long-time Republican strategist and campaign consultant to Donald Trump, had been indicted and arrested by Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s witch hunt. This is the latest in a long string of political “hits” against top Trump campaign officials. What was different today, however, is that video from Stone’s arrest looked more like the capture of a drug lord or known terrorist. In a ludicrous move, Stone’s home was swarmed by dozens of FBI agents and vehicles in full SWAT gear.
“These terrorizing tactics are are absolutely despicable,” said Ed Martin, president of Phyllis Schlafly Eagles. “The Department of Justice and the FBI should be ashamed not only with what took place but especially for colluding with CNN to allow cameras on a ride along. Fake news media is helping Mueller create a spectacle with all flash and – as we now know – absolutely no substance. Acting Attorney General Whitaker and FBI Director Wray ought to be ashamed. They should either resign for allowing CNN to manufacture such sensational ‘reporting’ or do their job and stop the Mueller witch hunt.”
