Roger Stone arrested


#758

They had a search warrant. Asking him to show up in court doesn’t help that.

Maybe they could have given him the benefit of the doubt and just subpoenaed him for records. You know who doesn’t get the benefit of the doubt? People indicted for obstruction, witness tampering and making false statements. The reason should be obvious.


#759

You said earlier in this thread that a search warrant was involved. Do you think search warrants are typically mailed as “a simple letter” to one’s attorney?


#760

He had stated publicly for months that he was going to be arrested for exactly what he was arrested. He wasn’t going to make a mad dash to destroy documents. If he had any that he thought needed destroying, they were already gone.


#761

So, what, don’t even try?

That sounds like pretty poor investigative technique Doug. There was nothing inappropriate or unusual about the FBI’s actions.


#762

I said that because some other poster had said that and I assume they were correct. Again…its kind of late to think he wouldn’t already have gotten rid of anything.


#763

People “like” Stone are supposed to get special treatment.


#764

He even made Instagram spoof videos about it. This was no surprise to him.


#765

I bet when they questioned him is was not under oath. He asked for the Hillary special.


#766

Who questioned him? And when?


#767

I wonder how he knew he was going to be arrested?


#768

I don’t think Hillary was ever arrested so they probably had a different gameplan.


#769

Well that’s an understatement lol.
Witnesses were allowed to sit with her during questioning. What a game plan.


#770

Correction, when they question him.


#771

Seems like it was handled appropriately for the likes of Stone.

Seems pretty weird that the major complaint isn’t about the crimes Stone committed, but how he was arrested and the conspiracy theories of CNN being there.


#772

Like when you know someone is attracted to you. He drew attraction to himself. That’s what he does. He has an attention bone the size of Godzilla. I think he wanted it. I am leaning more toward CNN being tipped off of on the arrest, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Stone knew something and tipped them.


#773

Well, being that she wasn’t arrested or indicted (like a bunch of Trump’s team) it may be just a hair different situation.

She doesn’t even have to decide if she’s gonna do hard time or flip on somebody else.


#774

What else CAN they really talk about?


#775

To be fair, to indict Hillary would have meant to throw Obama and his legacy under the bus. The great Obama lie. That he found out about Hillary’s server the same time we did.

Just chew on this apiece: How could Hillary Clinton ever be prosecuted without implicating Obama, who emailed her using a pseudonym?

There was nothing stopping the republican president, AG and Congress from pursuing charges.

It’s funny that a republican special investigator appointed by republicans is locking up Trump team members in the run up to his final report on Trump.


#777

Why should Stone be treated differently than any other alleged criminal?
