President Donald Trump issued a panicked tweet Friday morning, about five hours after his longtime adviser Roger Stone was arrested.

The president had remained uncharacteristically quiet in the hours after Stone's arrest on seven counts in special counsel Robert Mueller's probe, which found the Republican operative had lied about contacts with WikiLeaks and the Trump campaign.

"Greatest Witch Hunt in the History of our Country!" Trump tweeted. "NO COLLUSION! Border Coyotes, Drug Dealers and Human Traffickers are treated better. Who alerted CNN to be there?"
