Trump Seizes On Conspiracy That FBI Tipped Off CNN: ‘Who Alerted CNN To Be There?’

BRENDAN SMIALOWSKI/AFP

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.

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.
