Armed FBI raid & arrest of Roger Stone caught on CCTV FOOTAGE

Stone, 66, was arrested in an early morning Federal Bureau of Investigation raid at his Fort Lauderdale, Florida, home last month.

Stone faces charges of making false statements to Congress, obstruction and witness tampering in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russia's role in the 2016 USA election and whether Trump's campaign conspired with Moscow. He is accused of one count of obstructing an official proceeding, five counts of false statements, and one count of witness tampering. Yet, Stone said he was still shocked when he opened the door.

Stone's attorneys also note that they disagree with the legality of a gag order Jackson put in place more than a year ago that has kept Stone's former lobbying partner and fellow Trump adviser Paul Manafort and his legal team from speaking publicly.

Behind the home a third camera captures agents approaching the back of the house from the side yard.

Security footage shows an SUV with a CNN cameraman parked across the street from Stone's Fort Lauderdale, Fla., home. Stone raises his hands and spins around, apparently trying to show that he is unarmed. It's just after 6:00 in the morning.

"An example of how limited and narrow his public presence is, is that Kim Kardashian has 59.5 million followers on Twitter", Stone's court filing said. The case is against Roger Jason Stone Jr. He is barefoot. Stone is wearing a T-shirt that says, "Roger Stone did nothing wrong".

Jackson said last week that if she imposes a gag order, it won't limit all of Stone's speech.

"The FBI and their water carriers in corporate media tells us, 'Totally commonplace.' 'By the book.' "Happens all the time, '" Carlson said as he ended his segment".

"It was deeply concerning to me as to how CNN found out about that", Whitaker responded. "Because if it was given through normal channels, every media outlet would have been there, but only one was".
