New Surveillance Footage of FBI Raid on Roger Stone's Home

New Surveillance Footage of FBI Raid on Roger Stone's Home

Special Counsel Robert Mueller's office said Friday it would support a "narrowly-tailored" gag order for Roger Stone, President Trump's longtime adviser and friend who last month was indicted by Mueller's team on seven counts, including obstruction of an official proceeding, witness tampering, and making false statements.

Stone faces charges of making false statements to Congress, obstruction and witness tampering in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russia's role in the 2016 US election and whether Trump's campaign conspired with Moscow. "All of the men have sidearms holstered on their waists". A second camera mounted on Stone's front door shows another angle of the raid. It looks like a high-stakes raid, but the cameraman is 40 feet away filming it all.

It is not uncommon for federal agents to raid a home with heavy force, even if the target is not suspected of committing a violent crime.

Agents later walk Stone back into his home, still handcuffed, for unknown reasons. Stone raises his hands and spins around, apparently trying to show that he is unarmed. It's still dark out. The case is against Roger Jason Stone Jr. "By contrast, Roger Stone has no Twitter account at all and, thus has no Twitter followers", Stone said.

Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker offered testimony Friday before the House Judiciary Committee where he was pointedly asked whether CNN was tipped off about the Federal Bureau of Investigation raid of Roger Stone last month.

"It was deeply concerning to me as to how CNN found out about that", Whitaker responded.

Jackson raised the issue last week after she warned Stone not to treat his criminal case like a "book tour". The number one network in cable, FNC has been the most watched television news channel for more than 16 years and according to a Suffolk University/USA Today poll, is the most trusted television news source in the country.
