Roger Stone argues against gag order, says he's no Kim Kardashian

Stone, 66, was arrested in an early morning Federal Bureau of Investigation raid at his Fort Lauderdale, Florida, home last month.

The video shows multiple views of the agents, outfitted in tactical vests and night-vision googles, pounding on the door of Stone's Fort Lauderdale home and pointing their flashlight-equipped M-16s at him as he steps outside, immediately placing his hands up in surrender. Stone pleaded not guilty later that day to making false statements to Congress about contacts with WikiLeaks during the 2016 presidential campaign. One of them pounded on the door and other agents were visible in the background.

In one extra punch Friday, Stone's attorneys said prosecutors got his name wrong when they indicted him. It looks like a high-stakes raid, but CNN's cameraman is still 40 feet away filming it all.

It is not uncommon for federal agents to raid a home with heavy force, even if the target is not suspected of committing a violent crime.

Behind the home a third camera captures agents approaching the back of the house from the side yard. The case is against Roger Jason Stone Jr.

Stone objected to the proposal via his attorneys, arguing that public comment on politics and men's fashion is his job, so a gag order would interfere with his ability to earn a living. "By contrast, Roger Stone has no Twitter account at all and, thus has no Twitter followers", Stone's attorney said.

"The FBI and their water carriers in corporate media tells us, 'Totally commonplace.' 'By the book.' "Happens all the time, '" Carlson said as he ended his segment".

"I am aware of that and it was deeply concerning to me as to how CNN found out about that", Whitaker said.

The 66-year-old self-proclaimed "dirty trickster" has made several media appearances since charges were announced last month, and in a Reuters interview downplayed the charges as "process crimes" that did not involve intentional lies.
