I am by no means a Trump supporter and personally suspect Stone of equivalent moral turpitude. But this is absurd!

A SWAT raid to arrest a middle-aged political consultant, which was even leaked to the press; where was the need for that? Did they think he had a hidden Russian militia? Or, did they just want to make a big show of how dangerous this desk jockey was?

For God's sake, if you find yourself on the moral high ground for once STAY PUT! Don't jump off with pick and spade in hand - that mud is sticky.

Here is an article on the subject, for anyone living in a cave who needs updating:


FBI’s Roger Stone raid sends chilling message
But ex-agent calls it “ridiculous”


By Joe Dwinell | joed@bostonherald.com | Boston Herald

PUBLISHED: January 26, 2019 at 12:02 am | UPDATED: January 26, 2019 at 7:52 am

A swarm of agents in tactical gear shouting “FBI! Open the door!” outside Roger Stone’s Florida home just before dawn Friday was over the top but intended to send a chilling message to anyone else being eyed in the Mueller investigation — you’re next, former FBI agents told the Herald.

The SWAT-style raid on a white-collar suspect in pajamas went viral Friday, with CNN cameras rolling.

“It was absolutely ridiculous,” said ex-FBI agent Peter Yachmetz. “Doing it at 6 o’clock is extremely early. They were trying to get a point across and it was leaked to CNN. Why?

“It was inappropriate and improper,” added Yachmetz, an agent for three decades. “I cannot recall banging on anyone’s door at 6 a.m. for a white-collar crime. I did do it once in a kidnapping and extortion case.”

Yachmetz said the pre-dawn arrest was likely orchestrated by the U.S. Attorney’s Office working in tandem with the Mueller team.

“It’s a message for everyone else connected to the investigation,” said retired FBI supervisory special agent Todd Hulsey. “They are saying, ‘If you think we have something on you, we are going to get you.’ And it’s going to be an unpleasant arrest.

“Basically, it’s a pressure tactic,” Hulsey added. “Mueller and his people want to raise their stress level and cause people to cooperate.”

After his arraignment on witness tampering, obstruction and lying to Congress, a rattled Stone was quoted as saying 29 agents “pounded on the door,” pointed automatic weapons at him and “terrorized” his wife and dogs. Stone was taken away in handcuffs, the sixth associate of President Trump to be indicted in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. All the charges have been related to either lying or tax evasion, with no evidence of so-called “collusion” with Russia emerging to date.

Techno - The Boston Herald used to be a prominent news paper but Rupert Murdoch bought it in the 80's and turned it into a tabloid! In the 90's he had to sell it to purchase a Boston TV station but sold it to a man that publishes right wing rags like "The Patriot Ledger". Roger Stone was arrested on seven felony counts and his age, position or wealth has nothing to do with it! I can guarantee you the agents followed protocol for a suspect that may destroy evidence and unlike your country most American homes contain At Least one hand gun (sad but true)! Our law enforcement officers deal with this every day and don't take chances!

That does make sense, Arirish, although I am shocked by it. I've always wished our 'draconian' gun laws were a little softer. You have made me rethink that a bit. Perhaps we have it right after all.

Techno - Don't get me wrong, I'm not against guns! I own several handguns, shotguns and small and large bore rifles! My problem with our laws here in the U.S, is that it's harder to get a driver's license or for that matter a license to run a day care than it is to buy a gun! In most of our states if a doctor diagnosis' dementia he/she must notify the State and that patients driver's license is suspended! If the Dr. fails to report it his/her license can be suspended but if they think someone is bats__t crazy and could possibly harm people they have no responsibility to report it and even if they wanted to there is no formal way to do it! In fact, if they do report it to anyone, they are breaking doctor/patient confidentiality and are subject to having their license suspended and/or revoked! That's not crazy, That's INSANE! Maybe one day we'll wake up like our Aussie friends did and see the light but I'm not going to hold my breath!
