In the early morning hours yesterday morning, CNN broke the story of Roger Stone’s arrest. They just happened to have a camera crew set up across the street from Stone’s home. Really?
In the video the CNN reporter tells us “we were here at 5am waiting for whatever was going to happen, it was dark. 6am Just after the hour.”
CNN’s presence for a pre dawn raid warrants a leak investigation, especially in light of the obviously staged theatrics.
An estimated 27 or 29 heavily armed SWAT and FBI agents surrounded Stones home as though he was a terrorist or violent criminal known to be armed and dangerous. This wasn’t that.
At worst, if the allegations in the indictment are proven true, Stone would be guilty of a white-collar crime and should’ve been afforded the opportunity to turn himself in.
According to Stone neither he or his attorney was offered that option. His assertion has not been challenged by anyone involved:
The treatment afforded Stone was clearly staged for maximum impact.
A reading of the indictment (below) indicates that he is alleged to have lied to Congress – where have we witnessed that before? – and relies on innuendo to suggest he was told by Trump or a member of the president’s team to contact Wikileaks.

Take this analysis from The Conservative Treehouse for a ride:
The prosecutors allege Mr. Stone made multiple false statements to the House Intelligence Committee about his interactions with “Organization 1″ [WikiLeaks]. Thus it appears this is the reason why the currently corrupt DOJ and FBI have kept the transcripts hidden from public review.
If the public had the opportunity to review congressional witness testimony it would be much harder for current DOJ and FBI officials to shape a prosecutorial opinion of those statements. Thus, Robert Mueller’s team keeps the testimony hidden so they can weaponize innuendo, and legal differences of opinion, for maximum political damage. This is the very essence of “Lawfare”; one valuable approach toward legal manipulation.
The judge was so unimpressed by the indictment that he released Stone on $250,000 bond. That’s hardly the type of bond required of a flight risk or a dangerous person. Yet Stone was led into the courtroom in shackles.
I repeat, the treatment afforded Stone was clearly staged for maximum impact.
At this point I almost hope Mueller proves Trump is a Russian asset because otherwise I have to face the reality that our government is more corrupt – from top to bottom – than anyone could have imagined.
Except, I absolutely know that’s not the case.
There was a reason that Chuck Schumer publicly warned President-elect Trump that any attempts to “drain the swamp” would be resisted with the full force and weight of the intelligence community prior to taking office:
“Let me tell you, you take on the intelligence community, they have six ways from Sunday to get back at you. So, even for a practical, supposedly hard-nosed businessman, he is being really dumb to do this.”
Now watch this video of the planned resistance confronting Stone at this presser: (forward to 2:35)
Everything that took place yesterday regarding Roger Stone appears to have been carefully planned and executed – similar in the staged resistance seen at the Kavanaugh hearings.
The reasons are becoming clearer by the day. Trump must be stopped. By any means necessary.
Mueller, having failed to make a case against the president directly has moved on to Plan B.
Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. (This is cruel, but very effective. Direct, personalized criticism and ridicule works.) – Saul Alinsky
Plan B – make associating with President Trump so painful that no one will align with him.
Does anyone really believe that a few lies – illegal as they might be – made by insignificant people over insignificant issues threatens our Republic anymore than the lies told to Congress by these highly placed Obama administration officials?
- Former Secretary of State and Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton – Benghazi
- Former DNI, James Clapper
- Former FBI Director, James Comey
- Former CIA Director, John Brennan
- Former Attorney General, Eric Holder
Trump is that much of a threat to the entire corrupt Washington governing apparatus.
