It seems as though Special Counsel Robert Mueller is preparing to take his gloves off in his metaphorical melee with President Donald Trump.
One of the first lightweights to step into the ring with Mueller, in earnest, was Trump confidante Roger Stone, who publicly challenged Mueller’s methods as well as his demeanor. As recently as last night, Robert Stone was appearing on television to tell the world that Robert Mueller was trying to “ruin” his life.
This morning, however, he was arrested in connection to the Mueller investigation.
The funny thing is, why was CNN already there, ready to shoot the whole thing?

For many Americans weary of the role of the mainstream media in our screen-facing age this will appear as nothing more than the regular governmental-media collusion that we see on a daily basis. The problem now is of context.
The charges against Stone are no laughing matter.
Stone was charged with seven criminal counts, including obstruction of an official proceeding, witness tampering and making false statements.
His lawyer, Grant Smith, told Reuters that Stone would “vigorously” contest the charges.
“There was no collusion,” Smith said. “He forgot to tell something to Congress and what it was was immaterial.”
He appeared briefly in federal court in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, wearing blue jeans and a blue polo. A judge released him on a $250,000 bond and ordered him to limit his travel to South Florida, New York City and Washington.
