Roger Stone’s conspiratorial rant accuses Robert Mueller of using ‘Gestapo tactics’ and covering up 9/11

Trump confidante Roger Stone on Tuesday suggested that CNN was part of a conspiracy to have him arrested because network cameras were present when the FBI took him into custody.

During an interview on WABC-AM radio, Stone defended the media appearances he’s made following his arrest for lying to Congress, witness tampering and other charges in special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.

“Do you think they would come at me any less?” Stone complained. “I think the American people were revolted by what they saw.”

President Donald Trump’s longtime friend referred to the arrest as “Gestapo tactics.”

“If I was considered dangerous, why would the FBI allow a CNN camera crew to film the whole thing?” Stone asked. “I was arrested yesterday by CNN and they brought a few FBI agents with them.”

“There needs to be an investigation as to how [the CNN producers] knew about this in advance,” he insisted. “The point is to poison the jury pool, make me look like public enemy number one.”

According to Stone, the special counsel’s office is trying to silence him “because I have pointed out Robert Mueller’s role in the cover-up of 9/11, the cover-up of BCCI, the cover-up of the anthrax murders, the cover-up of [Pan Am flight 103], the cover-up of the Whitey Bulger case, the cover-up of Uranium One.”

CNN producers explained that they played a hunch that Stone would be arrested on Friday after observing unusual grand jury activity which mirrored other arrest patterns.

Robert Reich walks through all the ways Trump is selling America to foreign powers for his own personal profit

Published

Notorious class warrior Robert Reich wrote a sharp attack of President Donald Trump for his international policies that are doing nothing more than scoring him personal cash and power.

Writing for The Guardian, Reich called Trump "the most xenophobic and isolationist American president in modern history," saying that the president has been "selling America to foreign powers for his own personal benefit."

While Trump promised during the 2016 election that he would "bring troops home," it was likely assumed that Trump meant the decades-long wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The work on the ground in Syria was mostly being done by Kurdish allies and not American soldiers. The number of troops on the ground in Syria, prior to Turkey beginning their bombing campaign, was relatively low.
