Mueller’s SWAT Theatrics Should Enrage Every Patriotic American
Special Counsel Robert Mueller staged another political stunt for which he is famous: A pre-dawn raid on a political opponent.
FBI agents decked out like Navy SEALs with guns drawn descended on political consultant Roger Stone’s home and pounded on his front door.
A CNN camera crew, which had conveniently and patiently been waiting across the street from Stone’s house for more than hour, helpfully taped the whole thing.
Any uninformed viewer who watched the raid must think, “Wow! Those brave FBI agents must be facing down a bad hombre!” The truth is far from what’s shown on those images, though. This is simply more of Swamp Creature Mueller’s theatrics as he tries to shape a public narrative.
Guns drawn? Really, FBI tough guys?
Roger Stone is 66 years old. He lives with his wife and several of his little yip-yip dogs. The man puts out an annual style guide for men in Washington, DC. He teaches television reporters and politicians how to knot a necktie, so it has the perfect dimples.
Yet Mueller treated the arrest as if it were a raid on the bin Laden compound in Pakistan. The Hillary Clinton fan club that makes up Mueller’s team of prosecutors has had a microscope on Roger Stone for two years and everyone knows it because Mueller’s team leaks like a sieve.
A simple phone call to Stone’s attorney is all it would have taken, and he would have turned himself in peacefully.
But for Mueller, it’s all about the optics. He knows he doesn’t have a legitimate case against anyone on the Trump campaign, so he relies on the Fake News Network CNN to try to paint an ugly picture of Mr. Stone.
Mueller’s focus group meetings with the Clinton campaign must have decided that the pre-dawn raid on Paul Manafort’s home wasn’t effective enough without a camera crew there to cover it. Hence, CNN gets tipped off to advance the narrative.
No matter whether you love or loathe Roger Stone, you should be outraged that an American citizen was just treated to an unnecessary, frightening Gestapo raid at his home.
When you compare the treatment of Manafort and Stone to the way the FBI handled the Hillary Clinton crime syndicate with kid gloves, it’s absolutely maddening.
“I just need you to sign and initial this total immunity agreement right here, Huma Abedin/Cheryl Mills/Hillary. This simply states that you will turn over all laptops and mobile devices to us six weeks from today’s date, so we can pretend to examine them. Then, after we return them to you, you agree to smash them with hammers in case we ‘missed’ anything. In return for your cooperation, the FBI agrees to never ask you anything under oath and to keep no written, photographic or video records of any conversations we’ve had. Can I offer you cream and sugar with that?”
And the indictments against Roger Stone? More manure process crimes, which is Mueller’s standard operating procedure against Republicans.
If a police officer shows up on the street outside your house and follows you to work on your daily commute, he will eventually find an excuse to pull you over and write you a ticket. Maybe you touched the center line, or you failed to allow your blinker to blink seven times before you made a left turn.
He will get you eventually if that’s his goal. The reason it is an unjust citation is because you never would have received the ticket in the first place if the cop hadn’t been following you around every day. That’s what all of Mueller’s indictments against Trump campaign officials have been.
Roger Stone has not been charged with any crime related to the 2016 election. He hasn’t been charged with any crime related to “Russian collusion.” (No one can be ever charged with Russian collusion because there has never been a law passed which criminalizes colluding with Russians – or anyone else.)
All seven of the charges against Roger Stone are “process crimes.” They are crimes he never would have been charged with if Mueller’s unofficial Hillary fan club had not been following him around for two years.
We hope that Stone’s legal team crushes Mueller in court and that he is ultimately exonerated, just as Republican Senator Ted Stevens of Alaska was exonerated after Mueller attempted to frame him in 2008.
Mueller’s police-state theatrical antics need to be rebuked by Congress and the American people. A pre-dawn raid against Roger Stone? It doesn’t get much more biased, partisan and phony than that.
