Donald Trump thinks the FBI used too many agents to arrest Roger Stone. Now he is telling the FBI how to arrest people?

THE DAILY CALLER: Speaking of the FBI, sir, were you comfortable with the way and the force that was used against the raid in Roger Stone’s house? Do you think that was appropriate for your FBI to be doing that in a white collar case?

POTUS: I thought it was very unusual. You know, I’ve stayed out of that whole situation so that — because there was no collusion whatsoever. There was no nothing done wrong and frankly, I could have waded in very early, I could have ended it very easily if I wanted to but just let it run its course. But I will say, like, I’m speaking for a lot of people that were very disappointed to see that go down that way, to see it happen where it was on camera, on top of it.

That was a very, very disappointing scene —

THE DAILY CALLER: You thought it was unusual that CNN was there?

POTUS: — You have 29 people and you have armored vehicles and you had all of the other and, you know, many people know Roger, and Roger is not a person that they would have to worry about from that standpoint. I thought it was sad to see it.

THE DAILY CALLER: Would you ask the FBI to review its use of force, its militarization when it handles cases like this?

POTUS: I think it’s a good question for you to ask, and it’s something I’ll think about.

He’s not going to do anything about the militarization of the FBI because he loves it in most cases, and is only irritated when it is directed at one of his peeps

As for CNN being at that location the day of the raid that is what is known as “good journalism” a thing that Donald Trump and the Daily Caller could not ever comprehend. 

By the way, the reason that the FBI came at Stone so early in the morning and with that number of agents is to prevent the destruction of evidence, which apparently they managed to do quite effectively.

FBI agents seized several years worth of Roger Stone’s communications following his arrest last week, prosecutors told a federal judge on Thursday. In a motion to ask for more time to bring Stone’s case to trial, the feds said one reason is because discovery is “both voluminous and complex,” adding up to “several terabytes of information.” It includes results of search warrants served on Stone’s Apple iCloud accounts and email accounts, as well as warrants served on his home, apartment, and office that seized Stone’s cellphones, computers, and hard drives. After the evidence is filtered by a separate FBI team to separate out communications that are privileged (such as discussions with his attorney), it will be given to prosecutors and shared with Stone’s defense. Stone is charged by Special Counsel Robert Mueller with eight counts related to alleged lies to Congress about his discussions with WikiLeaks and the Trump campaign during the 2016 election. The case will be jointly tried by the U.S. Attorney for D.C., who filed the motion. Stone’s defense doesn’t oppose the move.

A terabyte equals one million million bytes of data, which is in layman’s terms is a shit ton. 

So several of them equals a voluminous amount of data. Data that might have been lost if Stone had been warned the FBI raid was imminent. 

And that is really what has Trump’s panties in a twist here. 

He could care less about the use of manpower in an FBI raid, but he is laser-focused on the data that the FBI may have seized from his former adviser.

    Stone had a meeting with republicans the night before, was it a shredding party?

    If it had been a democrat being arrested, trump would be complaining there weren’t enough agents.. wonder how many agents will be sent for donnie jr and jared. Good thing they have secret service protection so they can’t leave the country unexpectedly.

    Now he is telling the FBI how to arrest people LIKE his 3 oldest kids.
    “rump’s children exploited his TV celebrity to promote a company they knew was ripping off customers, the former investors say.

    “Defendants concocted a further scheme to use the rehabilitated Trump brand, their national celebrity, and their platform, as well as their casual willingness to make false and misleading statements, to defraud consumers who were inspired by Trump’s apparent wealth and success,” the plaintiffs argued in the complaint. The complaint singles out Ivanka”

      https://www.politicususa.com/2019/02/01/ivanka-trump-disgracefully-exploits-human-trafficking-to-push-for-her-dads-wall.html

      The Trump White House held a meeting Friday on human trafficking.
      $o, no one can remain unmoved except… Kellyanne Conway, Ivanka Trump, Donald Trump, Melania Trump, Senate Republicans… Basically no one is a survivor unless their story helps Trump’s political agenda. The Trump administration believes victims of human trafficking (right now, when selling the wall), but they do not believe American citizens who have been raped. There is a grotesque callousness about using an issue the entire Republican Party has said doesn’t matter for a Supreme Court Justice to advocate for a wall no one but the ever-dwindling Trump base wants. There are bonus points in Hell for caging these vulnerable children and justifying that by wrongly accusing their parents of committing a crime by seeking asylum in this country.
      There are even more points when one is defending a serial-accused sexual assaulter and is now using sexual crime to drive support for broken campaign promise.

    Trump must make his base feel really smart. Trump is so inbred dumb, that he is actually dumber then his base. He gets played everyday.
    Of course anyone with intelligence knows that he is a habitual liar and everything that he says is a lie.He even lies about his lies.
    The whole world now assumes he always lies. He is a world joke.A very stupid pos.like Ann coulter.

    I wonder if putin has plan b as the game draws near to the end for his puppet? Perhaps the starbucks guy? I bet putin got use to having a united states in his pocket and will not want to relinqiush that added perk to his power. I mean, there is a list of things that vlad got his way with these past two years. The approval to lift sanctions by the very complicit republicans is one of them. It stands to the democrats to block putins plan at every stop or our democracy topples. Right now those that wear red hats are brainwashed and there aint no way to convince them with reason and facts that their country is being manipulated by a hostile country through cyber power.

    You left out a million, Gryphen. One terabyte is ~ one million million bytes.

    • Gryphen February 1, 2019 at 11:12 am

      Damn, you are right Slipstream I did leave out one of the millions.

      Thanks for pointing that out.

      Fixed now.

    Given they weren’t being paid, I think the FBI could use as many agents as they wanted and handle the arrest in any way they deemed appropriate, since they were doing it “on their own time on their own dime” as it were.

    A former senior DOJ official says that not only is Trump a target, but he could end up being a criminal defendant.

    All that money bought putin and his thugs the usa. No one in this country will take their heads out of their asses to see that. Especially the obstructionist rethugs. We were once a great country wannabe. The way shit is going now may as well start learning some russain since they are slowly taking over.
