Rep. Biggs, Senate Judiciary Committee Demand Answers from FBI about CNN’s Presence at Roger Stone Arrest

Published

on

Republicans in the House and in the Senate Judiciary Committee want to know why the FBI sent dozens of heavily armed agents to arrest Roger Stone.

The Senate Judiciary Committee sent a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray in regards to the matter, asking for answers about the arrest in the form of testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Representative Andy Biggs (R, AZ) has similarly called for the Department of Justice Inspector General to investigate whether CNN was given advanced warning of the Stone arrest.

The likelihood that the arrest of Stone — who was indicted on charges of lying to Robert Mueller’s Russian collusion probe  — was not orchestrated in conjunction with CNN seems slim, according to many observers.

Stone has not been accused of committing any crime related to the probe’s scope.

Reporters from the cable TV channel were miraculously present outside of Stone’s house the morning of the arrest.  CNN employees attributed this coincidence to  journalistic instinct.

The Internet Mocks CNN

The idea that a reporter working at the notoriously fake news network CNN has so finely honed his instincts so as to be able predict exactly when an FBI raid of a private citizen’s house without being tipped off by some rogue federal agent in the deep-state has been widely mocked all over the internet.

Many commentators and news makers, from Greta Van Susteren to Jeanine Pirro to Donald Trump,  alleged that CNN was tipped off by the feds in an effort to capture embarrassing footage of Stone’s early morning arrest.

Stone has called for someone at CNN swear under oath that the FBI didn’t tip off the leftist news site. Such testimony could, if Stone’s claims are true,  potentially send some CNN staffer to jail for perjury.

CNN denies the claims, and many in the liberal media have defended CNN, labeling the claim a conspiracy.

In addition to other discrepancies related to the arrest, the Committee’s letter to Wray questioned in particular the FBI’s specific interactions with CNN.

It’s not standard operating procedure for the FBI to send a squad of armed agents to the home of a non-violent criminal charged with process violations; it’s possible the agency sought to put on a cable-TV show publicizing their arrest of a Trump-linked political figure.

Paul Manafort, another senior Trump campaign figure indicted by Mueller for crimes unrelated to the Trump campaign, was given the chance to surrender at an FBI office in Washington D.C.

The potentially dangerous arrest of Stone seems consistent with the partisan tendencies of left-wing political operatives who hold leadership posts at the  FBI, dating back to James Comey’s disastrous tenure as the agency’s director and Andrew McCabe’s seeming conflict of interest in helping secure financial assistance from former Virginia Governor and Clinton confidante Terry McAuliffe for McCabe’s wife’s state senate campaign.

George Soros Claims There’s A “Genuine, International Conspiracy” Against Him in New Interview

Some would say it’s the other way around.

Published

Billionaire oligarch George Soros has argued that his political enemies are organizing a “genuine international conspiracy” against him personally in a new interview with Italian magazine La Repubblica published Wednesday, pointing to right-wing movements for orchestrating a plot against him.

There is an actual, genuine international conspiracy against me. So, when I am challenging the same issues for an Open Society throughout the world, like discrimination, racial exclusion, totalitarian regimes, I am not conspiring, I am openly bringing forward the mission of my life. And my enemies learn from each other. And they attack together using similar techniques.

The in-depth profile of the globalist oligarch, who is interviewed by La Repubblica’s Mario Platero, details Soros’ personal life and work operating the Open Society Foundation.

In the interview, Soros refers to President Donald Trump as a “confidence trickster,” maintaining that the President has undermined democracy in the United States through his presidency. He maintains that he’s more concerned about the European Union and right-wing leaders on the continent, pointing to political figures such as Italy’s Matteo Salvini, Hungary’s Viktor Orban, and the Polish Law and Justice Party as potential threats to his vision of neoliberal political domination.

Soros appears to suggest that President Trump could be held criminally liable for supposed crimes in the event he loses the November elections.

So I am confident that Trump will turn out to be a transitory phenomenon, hopefully ending in November. But he remains very dangerous, he’s fighting for his life and he will do anything to stay in power, because he has violated the Constitution in many different ways and if he loses the presidency he will be held accountable.

Soros, who will soon turn 90 years old, refers to the coronavirus pandemic as the most destabilizing global event since World War II. The Hungarian-born financier seems relatively fit for his age, still playing tennis on a regular basis and overseeing his personal foundations.
