Breaking, former Trump Aide Roger Stone indicted...

 

 

I think it's important to note Stone was arrested after a Grand Jury Indictment.

 

The US Constution:

 

The Fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution provides that "No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger .

 

So this is serious crime, a felony.

 

Stone swore he would never talk, but many hardened criminals, organized crime, hit men, have said the same the same, and in the end they took the stand.

Situations like that are often handled by the lawyer being informed and the individual turning himself in.

The press was paying attention to grand jury proceedings.  Apparently Stone & his Atty. were not.  Oh well.

First of all, I always said that there could be some process crime.

Roger Stone

And if you turned over anything to the FBI you're a fool.

Roger Stone 

All this pre-dawn raid with drawn weapons jazz is just a bit dramatic.

The point is the FBI got their man in the most expedient, safest way possible.  They don't know what could have been behind the door.  They didn't harm him one little bit so why you're whining is....not relevant.

It never fails to amuse/amaze me watching conservatives upholding even career scumbags like Roger Stone while smearing the law enforcement that is going after them. I'm old enough to remember when the GOP was on the side of the law, not this skeevy iteration we see these days.


I believe the GOP (and all decent American citizens) support the law. That is why they are disgusted by the corruption of certain elements of law enforcement for partisan purposes.

 

Support for such activities also amazes me, but I do not find it amusing.

Perhaps the FBI should have called ahead and told Roger to put the coffee pot on and asked if he wanted his warrant served with pastries or donuts?


Hardly, there was no need for them to be there donuts or not. Situations like that are often handled by the lawyer being informed and the individual turning himself in.

Dang, the press did a good job recording this, one more bites the dust FBI enforcement event, for those of us who are interested in the rule of law.

Apparently his "crime' was refusing to "rat out" the President with the words Mueller wanted to hear.

Richva:  Every time another Trump associate goes down, the Queen song "Another one bites the dust" starts playing in my head. 

 

 

Good choice. This one goes well with it too.
