Following news of an early morning raid at the home of Roger Stone, a confidante of President Donald Trump with connections to his 2016 presidential campaign, Twitter users exploded in joy at the news.
Hailed by some as “Felony Friday,” the news of Stone’s arrest — to be followed by seven indictments — was greeted as evidence that the investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller just took a giant leap forward towards potential Trump involvement.
Noting that Trump was likely watching the video of the raid unfold, one Twitter wag gleefully tweeted, “Good morning, @realDonaldTrump!” before adding, “Once you’ve had your special vitamins, your first Egg McMuffin, and your fourth piss since midnight, enjoy the knowledge that Roger Stone is going to rat you out.”
You can share in the joy, illustrated by the tweets, below:
So the people who called out the Mueller grand jury for its rare Thursday meeting yesterday nailed it. The FBI just arrested Roger Stone.

Good morning to everyone except the people who’ve built their entire reputations around denying that the Trump campaign illegally conspired with Russia

I don't see any reason to arrest Roger Stone other than for everything he's done his entire life.

Just how stupid is Roger Stone:
"September 26, 2017—the day that Stone testified before HPSCI and denied having ever sent or received emails or text messages from [Credico]—Stone and [Credico] exchanged over THIRTY text messages"
And Donald J. Trump is depending upon him.

I'm mostly here for Never Trump conservatives talking about how Stone is an example of why Trump is a cancer while glossing over the fact that he was a bagman for Nixon, Dole, Reagan, Bush, Bush, Trump and a crap-ton of other Republicans over the past 46 years.

Good morning, @realDonaldTrump!
Once you've had your special vitamins, your first Egg McMuffin, and your fourth piss since midnight, enjoy the knowledge that Roger Stone is going to rat you out.
