Dan Bongino: Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is demanding an FBI briefing on the arrest of political adviser Roger Stone who was recently charged by Special Counsel Robert Mueller with obstruction, making false statements, and witness intimidation.
Graham sent a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray yesterday and expressed his concerns over the tactics used during Stone’s arrest.
Stone was arrested in the early morning last Friday by armed FBI agents in full tactical gear.
In his letter to Wray, Graham wrote, “Although I am sure these tactics would be standard procedure for the arrest of a violent offender, I have questions regarding their necessity in this case.”
He continued, “The American public has had enough of the media circus that surrounds the Special Counsel’s investigation. Yet, the manner of this arrest appears to have only added to the spectacle. Accordingly, I write to seek justification for the tactics used and the timing of the arrest of Mr. Stone.”
Graham requested that the FBI brief the Judiciary Committee by Feb. 5. more here
