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.

Dan Crenshaw White Knights for Liz Cheney After Republicans Blast Her Support for Trump’s Second Impeachment

Birds of a feather flock together.

Liz Cheney, daughter of Dick, was one of ten GOP House members to vote “yes” on President Donald Trump’s unprecedented second impeachment. Then when some were calling on Cheney to resign over her disgraceful vote, Dan Crenshaw, who voted against impeachment, quickly came to her defense and announced his “full support” for her.

“Let’s get some truth on the record: @Liz_Cheney has a hell of a lot more backbone than most, & is a principled leader with a fierce intellect,” Crenshaw tweeted Wednesday afternoon. “She will continue to be a much needed leader in the conference, with my full support.”

“We can disagree without tearing each other apart,” he added.

Crenshaw himself was then roundly criticized in the replies to his tweet.

Cheney’s vote comes as no surprise. Big League Politics reported on her recent statement in support of Trump’s second impeachment, part of which read: “There has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution. I will vote to impeach the President.” For this CNN laughably called her the “conscience of Republicans.”

As the old saying goes, “birds of a feather flock together.” Dan Crenshaw and Liz Cheney most certainly do not represent the future of the GOP.
