Roger Stone Robert Mueller Questions — Trump confidant Roger Stone was arrested in a pre-dawn raid today (Jan. 25) happily video-tapped by a tipped-off CNN.
Gabe Hoffman of An Open Secret notes involved were about 12 heavily armed FBI agents in black tactical gear. He points out that Stone is a 66 year old man without a history of violence who was being sought for white collar process crimes.
Gabe asks why didn’t they just tell his lawyer to turn himself in?
It’s a good question. There are a lot of good questions. Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who ordered the raid on Stone, is supposedly Trump’s enemy. Mueller’s best friend is supposedly Bill Barr. Trump picked Barr to be attorney general to replace Jeff Sessions. What’s up with that?
And why did Sessions unnecessarily recuse himself from overseeing the special counsel’s investigation in the first place giving the job to Rod Rosenstein?
And why didn’t Rosenstein recuse himself? He had signed FISA warrants that were part of the investigation as well as giving a written recommendation to President Trump to fire James Comey as FBI director, which Mueller is investigating as a crime.
Don’t ask us to explain it.
