FBI Hides Email Records with CNN Related to Roger Stone Raid From Public

The FBI is denying an open records request for transparency regarding the controversial raid of Trump associate Roger Stone’s home

Published

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is stonewalling the public regarding possible collusion with CNN reporters before pulling their jackbooted raid of Roger Stone’s home, arresting the elderly Trump associate with a show of force worthy of El Chapo.

The Federalist filed an open records request to witness all FBI emails addressed to and from CNN before the pre-dawn raid of Stone outside of his Fort Lauderdale, FL home. The FBI quickly denied the request.

“Please provide all e-mails sent to or received from any account with a ‘cnn.com’ domain from January 24, 2019 through January 25, 2019,” The Federalist wrote in their Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA) request.

While it was rumored that Stone’s home would be raided and he would be prosecuted for several months before it occurred, CNN reporters knew to get in position the day it did finally did happen. The raid looked as if it was a staged public relations event for Robert Mueller’s ‘Russian collusion’ probe.

In complete disregard for the intelligence of their audience, the CNN producer behind the coverage of Stone’s raid had the gall to claim it was “reporter’s instinct” that caused the display to be timed like a Hollywood production.

“It’s reporter’s instinct,” CNN producer David Shortell said after being asked about the suspicious display. “The whole Russia team thought maybe something was happening.”

“There was some unusual grand jury activity in Washington, D.C., yesterday,” Shortell said, continuing his rationale. “Robert Mueller’s grand jury typically meets on Fridays. Yesterday, Thursday, there was grand jury activity.”

“We also had some other signs that maybe something was going on this angle, the Roger Stone angle,” Shortell added. “So we showed up at his house this morning, we were the only ones there, and lo and behold, the FBI agents did come.”

Even more suspiciously, the FBI also rejected a separate FOIA request filed by The Federalist which asked to see any emails sent or received from Josh Campbell on the day of the Stone raid. Campbell was formerly employed by the FBI under disgraced former director James Comey before becoming a law enforcement analyst for CNN. The FBI refused this request as well.

The Federalist claims that the FBI refused to list why their requests were not FOIA compliant. The Office of Inspector General, tasked by the Department of Justice with overseeing the FBI, has blasted the law enforcement bureau for its culture of corruption and leaking.

“We have profound concerns about the volume and extent of unauthorized media contacts by FBI personnel that we have uncovered during our review,” the inspector general wrote in a report blasting the FBI. “We identified numerous FBI employees, at all levels of the organization and with no official reason to be in contact with the media, who were nevertheless in frequent contact with reporters.”

“We do not believe the problem is with the FBI’s policy, which we found to be clear and unambiguous,” the report noted. “Rather, we concluded that these leaks highlight the need to change what appears to be a cultural attitude among many in the organization.”

The FBI’s close relationship with the corporate media is well-established, and a dangerous precedent of collusion may have been set with the raid on Stone. The idea proposed by Sens. Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) for a new special counsel to investigate the investigators may be the only mechanism to get the FBI back in line.

Two Men Arrested for Planning Terrorist Attack on Trump Tower in Support of ISIS

They’re from South Carolina and Texas.

Published

The FBI has arrested two men and charged them with planning terrorist attacks on locations such as New York’s Trump Tower in support of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.

Kristopher Sean Matthews of South Carolina and Jaylyn Christopher Molina of Texas have been charged with conspiring to provide material support or resources to a designated foreign terrorist organization.

Matthews adopted the pseudonym Ali Jibreel, and Molina the name Abdur Rahim.

The pair allegedly plotted to attack government facilities and New York’s Trump Tower, discussing their plans in jihadist chatrooms. They were busted by federal informants within these honeypots.

We need to stick together, we need to defeat them, we need to take a lot of casualties,” said Molina of the pair’s plotting. Molina spoke of his allegiance to ISIS in the server. “You are my enemy (America) and never will I wear your flag … but I will raise the black flag of Allah.

They also spoke of the proposition of traveling to Syria in order to fight for ISIS, an idea that would’ve almost certainly resulted in their quick capture or death. American citizens caught fighting for ISIS on foreign battlefields have proven to be a legal nightmare for American military and civil law to manage.

Both were arrested on Monday. They face a maximum penalty of twenty years in prison, with a lifetime of supervised release.

These clowns didn’t get very far in actually planning acts of violence in support of ISIS, and they seem to have somewhat missed the boat- ISIS has largely been defeated by American-backed Kurdish militias and the Iraqi and Syrian governments. But they deserve punishment nonetheless.
