Roger Stone’s Indictment (Probably) Wasn’t My Fault [OPINION]
The FBI banged on Roger Stone's door this morning and took the political consultant and his Richard Nixon tattoo into custody. He is the latest arrest in Trump world.
Last November, I wrote an opinion piece about my role in the Mueller investigation, when I found out that, according to CNN, my interview with Roger Stone is part of the investigation into the alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election.
But I don't think you can blame me for his indictment today, or for the fact that CNN somehow got to Stone's house before the FBI.
How is that possible? Who tipped them off that agents were coming to get Stone? I'm not condemning CCN. I think that's a fantastic "get," but someone had to leak that information to them. What are the odds that the reporter who has been covering this story, based out of Washington D.C., just happened to be in front of Stone's house in Fort Lauderdale, Florida at 6 a.m. this morning?
Nobody gets that lucky. Nobody happens to be in the right place, at the right time, at 6 a.m. unless someone told them ahead of time they were coming.
At some point, CNN was "shooed away." I'm guessing field agents weren't happy with them being there.
