President Donald Trump responded to the indictment of his former associate Roger Stone Friday by suggesting that the FBI may have tipped off CNN about Stone’s impending arrest.
Greatest Witch Hunt in the History of our Country! NO COLLUSION! Border Coyotes, Drug Dealers and Human Traffickers are treated better. Who alerted CNN to be there?

Conservatives like former Fox News anchor Greta VanSusteren began circulating the conspiracy on Twitter after CNN obtained exclusive footage of the arrest outside Stone’s Fort Lauderdale home. CNN has denied they were tipped off and said reporters decided to stake out the home after witnessing unusual grand jury activity in Washington, D.C. on Thursday.
CNN cameras were at the raid of Roger Stone…so FBI obviously tipped off CNN…even if you don’t like Stone, it is curious why Mueller’s office tipped off CNN instead of trying to quietly arrest Stone;quiet arrests are more likely to be safe to the FBI and the person arrested
