Why the armed FBI raid on Roger Stone's home was justified (it has nothing to do with collusion)

Washington Examiner - 01-28


The raid on President Trump confidante Roger Stone’s Florida residence led to much hand-wringing over the raid itself. Were the tactics employed by the FBI to apprehend Stone necessary and appropriate? Did special counsel Robert Mueller or the FBI tip off CNN, who had journalists on the scene capturing exclusive footage? In a flurry of televised appearances after posting a $250,000 bond and being released on Friday afternoon, Stone referred to the FBI actions as " theatrics" and later claimed the raid was " an attempt to poison the jury pool." In a statement, he described his wife and dogs as being “terrorized” by the method of arrest.
