    Dear Mr. Mueller, if you are going to indict Roger Stone of process crimes, where is the equal justice under the law? Shouldn't all Americans receive equal treatment regardless of political affiliation?
    What about James Clapper, who lied to Congress?
    I can name a bunch of Obama officials, including Eric Holder, the Previous Attorney General in the Obama administration, who lied and obstructed...

    Is this America or Nazi Germany? Where are the true Americans? 
    If they can go after Roger Stone, they can go after anyone else...including you.

      Another aspect that I find upsetting it that CNN went and able to record his arrest.  This is Stalin-era tactics.  That is very upsetting.

        I know, all Democrats, Republicans and independent should take notice. We have a runaway special consel that are hurting our justice system and creating a precedent for future actions...
        Another administration could use the same tactics on their political opponents and pretty soon, we will have a nation ruled under tyranny...

                You don't find it unusual that they just guessed the right morning to be there at 5 am?

                When the reporter on the scene was asked why he was there that morning, his answer was he had a feeling something might happen. I understand good experienced reporters develop instincts for stuff like this, but I also understand good experienced reporters also develop contacts and tipsters.

                Anyway, at the least, it was a damn good guess.

            You are right Randy, and they may have had a spotter watching the house.

            But, they had not been there at 5 am every morning, and nothing happened prior to about 5:45 am that morning, so a "spotter" couldn't have called them in to be there and set-up by the time of the 6 am event.

              According to the news, there was a meeting the night before between Roger and some conservative group of some sort. It may be this aroused the press, but even if this wasn't true, there's always been those who tip off the press when something of this import occurs.

                  Yeah right, most of the leaks come from the WH. Comey is no longer involved in Trump's investigation and Mueller is notoriously leak proof. You're listening to Rush and Sean and they don't know dog$#it about what's really going on in the investigation.

                  All they can talk about is how Hillary tried to steal the election from Donnie and the Steele Dossier. They are both a couple of paid shills as you'll discover when Mueller's report is made public.

        A process crime is lying to investigators...like Martha Stewart. Lying to Congress, under oath, is perjury. Both are serious but apparently some are more serious than others. It reminded me of George Orwell’s book Animal Farm.
        Some are more equal than others...
        I want the next Attorney General to charge James Klapper and others of perjury...we need to make an example of these people so that it will act as a deterrent for future officials. Why would they change their behavior if there are no consequences...

          I agree with much of your comment jackclee, relative to lying to Congress being perjury. And I heartily agree that some are more equal than others.

          To that point, I stumbled on a factoid while checking out Clapper's "lies." It seems only about six people have been charged with perjury for lying to Congress - since 1940.

          I agree there is a double standard with this issue; one article referred to those, (like Clapper), DC denizens that lied and got away with it as DC's "Made Men."

          But, I think to try to pass off the description as a "process" crime is the same as calling an illegal alien an undocumented immigrant. I feel confident you wouldn't agree with that.

          ps. I think the statute of limitations for Clapper's offense has run out or will run out in days.

      "What about James Clapper, who lied to Congress?"

      If you're referring to Clapper's testimony to the Senate in 2013, surely that wouldn't be within the scope of the Special Counsel's investigation, as outlined in the authorization to investigate the Special Counsel received from the Deputy AG.

          You started your opening comment with "Dear Mr. Mueller". I thought you were suggesting the Special Counsel is biased because he has not investigated James Clapper's testimony.

          If that's not the case, then who is your accusation of bias aimed at, bearing in mind the Executive, House and Senate have all been under Republican control for the last two years?

            Our system is broken and no one seems interested in fixing it.
            I an against both parties because they are part of the problem and not the solution.
            I think we need term limits and rethink how our Congress is to be run.
            This rediculous budget process should be throw out.
            Lets get a real account in there who can manage a budget and create a budget on schedule...
            I would open investigation on all senators and congressmen. I want them to account for their time in Washinton.
            What do they actually do? There are 535 members and nothing seems to get done on time.
            Perhaps we should shut them down for 3 months and regroup.

              Are you saying you believe Clapper lied to Congress, therefore he should be indicted, but Trump associates indicted or convicted for lying to Congress should not be?

              Or are you saying it's good that the Trump associates who lied to Congress have been convicted or indicted, and you just think Clapper should be too?

                  Now you're talking about addressing issues with all of Congress, as opposed to just "The Democrats". You almost sound non-partisan. What have you done with the real jackclee?

                  But it does go back to the question I initially raised? Shouldn't any complaint about inaction in the last two years be aimed at the current administration, who's party controlled Congress and the Presidency during that time?

      This is 100% correct. What has Roger Stone ever done to anyone? Nothing. Our government is clearly filled with Nazis now, using Nazi-era tactics to arrest innocent citizens - to pull them off the street and make them disappear. Really, how far away are we from gas chambers for Republicans who are murdered for expressing their political views? I say not far. This is why the second amendment is so important. We all need to protect ourselves from run-a-way government officials showing up at our doors and trying to imprison us for made-up crimes.

    No One Mentions That The Russian Trail Leads To Democratic Lobbyists


    “The media’s focus on Trump’s Russian connections ignores the much more extensive and lucrative business relationships of top Democrats with Kremlin-associated oligarchs and companies. Thanks to the Panama Papers, we know that the Podesta Group (founded by John Podesta’s brother, Tony) lobbied for Russia’s largest bank, Sberbank. “Sberbank is the Kremlin, they don’t do anything major without Putin’s go-ahead, and they don’t tell him ‘no’ either,” explained a retired senior U.S. intelligence official. According to a Reuters report, Tony Podesta was “among the high-profile lobbyists registered to represent organizations backing Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich.” Among these was the European Center, which paid Podesta.”

              Now, Mike and others are griping about not pursuing charges against Podesta and Clinton.  Trump and his appointees are in charge, so I'd really like to hear what they believe is the cause for the inaction.  I mean, I could speculate, but I'd like to hear from them.
