Former Trump campaign advisor Roger Stone is not happy about the FBI arresting him last week in what he said was with “greater force” than was used on Osama bin Laden.
“I’m 66 years old. I do not own a gun. I do not have a valid passport. I have no prior criminal record. I’m charged with nonviolent process crimes,” Stone told reporters outside of his home Monday.
“To storm my house with greater force than was used to take down bin Laden or El Chapo or Pablo Escobar, to terrorize my wife and my dogs … It’s unconscionable.”
Stone said he would’ve voluntary turned himself in if the FBI contacted his attorneys. “I would’ve been able to wear a suit and tie for my mugshot, it would’ve looked a lot better.”

Stone also peddled the conspiracy that CNN was tipped off by the FBI to film the arrest outside the house. CNN explained that their reporters noticed unusual grand jury activity leading up to the arrest.

Stone has been indicted of seven counts: one count obstruction of an official proceeding, five counts of making false statements, and one count of witness tampering. The office of the special counsel reported that they have evidence that links Stone with “Organization 1” —believed by many to be Wikileaks — and the hacking of the Democratic National Convention’s emails during the 2016 election.
Stone is a long time friend and supporter of President Donald Trump and has promised to stay loyal to the president throughout his proceedings.
