Tucker Airs Footage Of The FBI’s Raid On Roger Stone’s Home

Matthew Whitaker acting U.S. attorney general testifies during a House Judiciary Committee hearing in Washington D.C. U.S. on Friday. Feb. 8 2019. Whitaker has agreed to appear defusing at least for the moment a charged partisan debate over threat

Roger Stone's attorneys says that his comments don't merit a "clear and present danger to a fair trial".

Roger Stone is trying a new tactic in arguing against a federal judge who may restrict what he says in public: He's claiming he's not much of a celebrity.

"Until now the only public footage of the raid came from CNN, which somehow knew to arrive one hour before the Federal Bureau of Investigation got there", Carlson said, before showing a clip of Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker being asked about CNN's presence at the raid during a congressional hearing.

US District Judge Amy Berman Jackson, who is handling the case, said during a hearing a week ago that she is considering a gag order on both parties.


Like many conservatives, Carlson has raised suspicions that Stone's arrest was politically motivated. Roger Stone was arrested on 25 January on federal charges put forward by Special Counsel Mueller, who is investigating the Trump campaign's alleged ties with Russian Federation.

"While Roger Stone may be familiar to those who closely follow American politics, he is hardly ubiquitous in the larger landscape of popular consciousness", Stone's attorneys wrote. His shirt, ironically, reads "Roger Stone did nothing wrong". "Stone's either indictment or arrest before that information was made available to the public", Whitaker said. Prosecutors are not asking for a blanket ban on Stone appearing publicly or discussing matters unrelated to his case.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Friday night aired video of the FBI's arrest of President Trump's longtime adviser Roger Stone, questioning the agency's show of force - and why a CNN camera crew was at the scene an hour before authorities arrived just before dawn on January 25.

He is charged with lying to Congress, obstruction and witness tampering related to discussions he had during the 2016 election about WikiLeaks, the anti-secrecy group that released material stolen from Democratic groups including Hillary Clinton's campaign.
