Lindsey Graham Demands FBI Briefing on “Tactics” Used in Roger Stone Arrest

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

  1. The shit is ridiculous. Even if that much firepower was warranted your’e going to bring a potential Gunfight of that magnitude into a residential area at 5:00 AM. With weapons that will travel 1000 yards. Not to mention these guys suck. Like I say, I alway kind of chuckle every time one of these things head south.

  5. One of these days some RoboCop is going to get a facefull of 00 from a homeowner who thinks it’s a home invasion. The S in SWAT stands for “special” not “standard”. The militarization of law enforcement is not a healthy trend.

  6. To hell with the “tactics” what about the “policy”??

    I’m thinking if this guy rates a SWAT raid, my old crippled ass will probably get an airdrop from the 101st Airborne.

    That’s already happened several times. I believe, every time the occupant was found Not Guilty. A couple of them were wrong addresses. For the most part I’m pro cop, but I really don’t like the militarization of our police forces.

    It’s called Waco. Why do you think CNN’s second director was rolling?

    Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
