Saturday Night Live, makes sport of Fearless Leader, b/k/a Special Counsel Robert Mueller:

Sober reax, Michael Nollet, American Thinker:

Much has been made of the pre-dawn arrest of Roger Stone in his home in Fort Lauderdale. To make this arrest, Special Counsel Robert Mueller, probably having delegated the task to his subordinate Andrew Weissmann (who is known for this tactic), assembled a full-scale FBI SWAT team of 29 members, replete with long weapons, body armor, and even a flash-bang grenade or two. The arrest took place at “zero dark thirty” or 5:30 A.M. Nevertheless, a CNN crew was on hand to film the whole thing.

Once upon a time, this level of force was considered necessary only to raid suspects able and inclined to shoot back, or who might destroy evidence. Think Symbionese Liberation Army or drug kingpin Frank Lucas of American Gangster fame. In such cases, in which the suspects really might shoot back, a television crew would never be allowed, on the grounds that they could be killed in the crossfire. The fact that a CNN crew was allowed to film Stone’s arrest is evidence that nobody believed he was dangerous. Indeed, he was not: he is a 66-year-old white-collar suspect with no prior history of violence, who didn’t even have weapons in his house. Even the judge processing Stone’s arraignment implicitly accepted that Stone was not dangerous; he allowed Stone to be released on a $250,000 surety bond.

Some joker or jokers, decided to use a twenty-nine man SWAT team to arrest a sixty-six year old white collar suspect with no history of violence, and then leak the raid to CNN.  Did Fearless Leader’s clowns think they were trying to arrest the Branch Davidians or pray tell Elian Gonzalez?  No honesty law enforcement officer invites a news agency to a freeping SWAT raid.

One Response to “Fearless Leader’s Goons SWAT Roger Stone”

  1. It’s all about generating fear and keeping people from supporting Trump in 2020.

    Hauling Stone in, strip searching him and processing was supposed to put the fear in him.  They picked the wrong man.

    Minimally, others who might join Trump in the 20 campaign will think twice about it.
