This was a heavy-handed message. Roger Stone was no Tony Montana waiting inside his house with an M-203 and a pile of coke in front of him, they could have sent notification to his lawyer to present himself at the local FBI building 15 miles away as the crow flies. And a full tactical team with CNN recording video? This is more ATF back in the day which eventually led with the colossal screw up at Waco.
This is the FBI announcing sides and not in favor of the President. And it is also the local agency trying to look butch after they dropped the ball with Nikki Cruz and the Parkland massacre.
20 years ago we thought we were about to see the disappearance of the ATF. Now we may be seeing two of them.
That is scary.
UPDATE: The Super Evil Villain Robert Stone who needed a Tactical team to effect his arrest at the wee hours of the morning like he was some confirmed terrorist about to bomb orphanages…. is already out on bail.
Not even 12 hours.
Tell me it was not a show of force for sheer intimidation.
