Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) took to Twitter on Thursday where he revealed that he wrote a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray with concerns after the pre-dawn raid at Roger Stone’s home on Friday morning.

Roger Stone was arrested Friday and charged with seven felonies; Tuesday he plead not guilty.

Roger Stone’s charges had nothing to do with election meddling or Russian collusion, further it has nothing to do with President Trump.

However, the Justice Department sent 29 agents on the scene, 17 vehicles, 2 of them armored, and a helicopter overhead. The feds sent more armed men to Rogers Stone’s house in Fort Lauderdale than they did to Osama Bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan, to put into perspective.

Graham nails FBI’s handling of Stone’s arrest with a demand of answers to five questions:

Graham asked, “Today I wrote to the FBI about the arrest of Roger Stone. My questions include: 1) Why was it necessary to arrest Mr. Stone at his home in the early morning hours, rather than working through his attorneys to permit him to surrender voluntarily?”

Next he wondered, “2) Was the manner of Mr. Stone’s arrest consistent with the arrests of, and procedures for the arrests of, similarly charged individuals?”

He continued, “3) Were usual procedures for obtaining and executing arrest and search warrants followed with regard to Mr. Stone?” (Continued Below)

Graham inquired, “4) Did the Special Counsel’s office issue a press release and release the indictment to the press prior to informing Mr. Stone’s attorneys of the arrest?”

Finally he asked, “5) Did anyone at the FBI, DOJ, or the Special Counsel’s office alert CNN, any other media outlet, or anyone outside of law enforcement that the arrest was going to occur on the morning of January 25, 2019?”

Graham further wrote, “Since his appointment, I have supported Special Counsel Mueller’s ability to conduct his investigation without interference. Moreover, I have always been a strong admirer and supporter of the FBI.”

“However, while I firmly support law enforcement taking into account threats to officer safety, flight risk, and the need to ensure evidence is preserved I am leery that a subject of the Special Counsel’s investigation, who had retained counsel, had publicly stated that he believed that he would at some point be indicted, and was apparently willing to surrender voluntarily, was arrested in a pre-dawn raid at his home.” The South Carolina Senator said.

He concluded, “Although I am sure these tactics would be standard procedure for the arrest of a violent offender, I have questions regarding their necessity in this case.”
