Trump Advisor Roger Stone Arrested, Here Are The Funniest Reactions

Early Friday morning, a group of armed FBI agents stormed the Florida home of longtime Trump associate Roger Stone. Stone has been indicted by a federal grand jury of lying about Russia meddling in the 2016 election, according to special counsel Robert Mueller.

Mueller claims that Stone, at the direction of “a senior Trump Campaign official,” sought stolen WikiLeaks emails in an attempt to damage Trump’s opponents. He has also been charged with obstruction, making false statements, and witness tampering, though Mueller’s office has not accused Stone of conducting any criminal activity during the campaign.

A CNN video of the raid on Stone’s home has been making the rounds on Twitter.

Stone’s arrest and the CNN footage evoked dozens of jokes from Twitter. Folks were gleeful over the notion that FBI agents raiding Stone’s home were volunteers working for free, on account of Trump’s ongoing government shutdown.

Stone denied any connection to WikiLeaks or knowledge of the DNC email leaks, but past statements tell a different story. In the run-up to the 2016 election, Stone often spoke about leaks of Democrats’ emails, even praising “Guccifer 2.0,” the hacker who took responsibility for breaking into DNC servers.

The former Trump campaign player has also stated that he’d “communicated” and “dined” with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, and threatened the Clinton campaign repeatedly with hints that more damaging leaks were forthcoming.
