🔥#BREAKING Roger Stone Is Indicted AND Arrested in Mueller Investigation Into Trump Campaign nyti.ms/2Hurg8I #TrumpRussia
‼️FBI agents arrested Roger Stone at his home in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Longtime adviser to Trump, Stone was charged with 7 counts—obstruction, making false statements and witness tampering—over his communications with WikiLeaks & Dem emails. #TrumpRussia #MuellerInvestigation
Sarah Sanders, seriously: Roger Stone’s arrest and indictment has nothing to do with the president or the WH. Will the same standard apply to others who gave false statements like Hillary Clinton and James Comey? CNN is guilty of collusion. President Trump is tough on Russia.
So Sarah Sanders refused to say if Trump directed his camp to talk to Roger Stone about the timing or content of Wikileaks’ stolen—by Russia—emails. Trump used Wikileaks daily during campaign, distorting email content to paint Clinton as “crooked” & criminal—unfit to be POTUS🙃😳
Adding to the drama: @CNN recorded Roger Stone's arrest, having been outside his home after noticing unusual grand jury activity in DC. @davidgshortell reports a "caravan of dark police vehicles" drove up pre-dawn, FBI agents in tactical gear fanned out.
The FBI not only arrested Roger Stone today. They also executed search warrants at Stone’s Florida & NY homes. @AshaRangappa_ notes Mueller must be looking for evidence of MORE criminal activity that what we see in today’s unsealed indictment. 🍿 ⏰ 🍿 #TrumpRussia #MuellerFriday
💥Note passive voice: "senior Trump Campaign official was directed to contact STONE about any additional releases and what other damaging information [Wikileaks] had regarding the Clinton Campaign." So COLLUSION/coordination AND DIRECTION by Trump camp & Russia. By Trump himself?
Roger Stone knew of the stolen Clinton emails before Wikileaks released them. He informed senior Trump campaign officials—giving them a heads-up thruout the campaign about new hacks. And he affirmatively sought more from Assange. Mueller has the receipts—texts & ironically emails
Shortly after Wikileaks released Podesta emails (Clinton Campaign chair) on October 7, an "ASSOCIATE of the HIGHRANKING TRUMP CAMPAIGN OFFICIAL" sent a TEXT message to STONE that read “WELL DONE.” Stone took credit for his "prediction" to senior Trump campaign officials.
Ever the PR man, Roger Stone outside the courtroom after arrest & bail: “I’m a fervent supporter of President Trump. He is making America great again. I’ll never testify against him. The only person I’ve advocated a pardon for is Marcus Garvey.” 🤔Can you pardon a co-conspirator?
ICYMI "Get Me Roger Stone" filmmakers w/ @JoyAnnReid back when Manafort was indicted: Stone, Manafort and Trump go way back. Trump was their client in 80s. Stone saw in him the charisma Nixon lacked and spent 29 years grooming Trump for the presidency.
@JoyAnnReid .@JohnBrennan has spoken of people going down a treasonous path not knowing it until it's too late. #RogerStone coordination w/ #Wikileaks makes #TrumpRussia collusion a witting conspiracy. This THREAD—written when Mueller named—shows what's been staring in our face for so long.
Not only is #TrumpRussia a witting conspiracy. The Trump campaign was so desperate & unscrupulous, Russia's election operation may've been team Trump's idea. It's how Manafort & Stone roll. Would Putin really have undertaken such a massive US attack w/o American buy-in?🤔#Maddow
Wikileaks was a crucial element of Russia’s election attack. Roger Stone’s indictment confirms Mueller has evidence the Trump campaign participated in that attack. The Trump campaign was more than eager to join Russia’s conspiracy, e.g. Trump Tower Meeting medium.com/@PaulaChertok/…
🔥@FrankFigliuzzi1🔥: After today’s indictment, we should be viewing Roger Stone as a traitor. He worked in concert with an enemy—Wikileaks—to release information stolen by another enemy— Russia. He betrayed our form of govt, how we elect a president. Via @11thHour #TrumpRussia
