Occam’s Razor tells us that the FBI tipped off CNN. And that needs to be investigated.
CNN GOT AN INSIDE TIP ABOUT THE FBI RAID AND IT’S LYING ABOUT IT
In response to the accusations by President Trump and others, that CNN had received an inside tip about the Roger Stone raid from the FBI, the news network published a whole article claiming that it had gotten the scoop by putting together various clues.
1. There was no purpose to such an aggressive FBI raid without a camera crew standing by.
Previous defendants had been allowed to turn themselves in. Why would it take multiple vehicles and personnel to arrest one man in his sixties? There’s nothing resembling practical necessity here. And, without cameras standing by to broadcast the footage, the entire effect would have been lost.
Without the certain knowledge that a camera crew would be on the spot to capture the scene, there was no reason not to just inform Stone’s lawyer and arrange for his surrender.
