Fox & Friends React to Roger Stone Arrest: ‘Where is the Russian Collusion?’
Major news on the investigation into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian interference in the 2016 general election led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller broke early Friday morning when reports surfaced that Roger Stone had been arrested by FBI agents in his South Florida home.
Fox & Friends take? Where is the Russian collusion?
The office of Robert Mueller released a 24-page indictment, which presents an extremely difficult situation for live television hosts to report on and interpret in real time. The details of the indictment are damning to the Trump campaign, alleging that Stone was ostensibly working as proxy between WikiLeaks and a senior Trump campaign official. Stone is alleged to have even have received credit from senior Trump campaign officials for helping release information damaging to Hillary Clinton and info hacked from a DNC server.
From the indictment:
“On or about October 7, 2016, Organization 1 released the first set of emails stolen from the Clinton Campaign chairman. Shortly after Org. 1’s release, an associate of the high- ranking Trump Campaign official sent a text message to STONE that read “well done.””
So, the indictment appears to connect the Trump campaign to information hacked by Russian officials who have already been indicted by Mueller for interfering in the election.
But Steve Doocy’s take? “When you look at seven counts from the grand jury, obstruction of an official investigation, false statements to Congress, and perhaps witness tampering, once again, where is the Russia collusion?”
Ed Henry agreed, saying “right, it is a process crime based on the investigation.”
