CNN Magically Staking Out Roger Stone’s Home As FBI Arrests Him
Exactly 618 days since Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s official investigation into “Russian collusion” began on May 17, 2017, and more than 800 days after news broke that authorities were looking into “Russian collusion,” Trump associate Roger Stone was arrested by the FBI at his Fort Lauderdale, Florida home.
Magically, in the wee hours of the morning on day 618, CNN had a camera crew and producer stationed outside Stone’s home. Call it a “reporter’s instinct.”
Actually, that is exactly what CNN Crime Producer David Shortell called it, as he an Alisyn Camerota tried to hide their elation at the most recent development in the case during a Friday morning interview on “New Day,” as many wonder CNN could be so prescient.
“Alisyn, it’s reporter’s instinct,” Shortell said live from the scene. “The whole Russia team thought maybe something was happening. The was unusual some grand jury activity in Washington, D.C. yesterday. Robert Mueller’s grand jury typically meets on Friday. Yesterday, a Thursday there was grand jury activity.”
Shortell also explained that there were some “other signs” that led his team to believe that Stone was Mueller’s target on this particular Friday morning. He did not divulge what those “other signs” were.
To many, the coincidence seems far-fetched. Neither Stone, nor his attorney had any inkling of his impending arrest.
But CNN did.
Make no mistake, this would be a big national news story with or without cameras present. But adding a visual element elevates this story into the stratosphere. The simple appearance of so many police officers and FBI agents storming Stone’s home gives a stronger impression of guilt – that Mueller and his crew of crooked cops are serving up cold hard justice with the strong arm of the law.
Stone was charged with process crimes regarding his testimony about the alleged “Russian collusion,” yet evidence of such collusion is still non existent.
Watch CNN report on Stone’s arrest with glee:
