Donald Trump ally, Roger Stone, was charged last week by special counsel Robert Mueller and shared with reporters how his arrest was handled like he was Osama “bin Laden or El Chapo or Pablo Escobar.”

Currently, Stone is now free on bond awaiting trial on a seven-count indictment, charging him with obstruction of an official proceeding, false statements and witness tampering, and was arrested by FBI agents early Friday at his home in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

“I’m 66 years old. I do not own a gun. I do not have a valid passport. I have no prior criminal record. I’m charged with nonviolent process crimes,” Stone shared on Monday while outside his home.

“To storm my house with greater force than was used to take down bin Laden or El Chapo or Pablo Escobar, to terrorize my wife and my dogs … It’s unconscionable.”

But Stone’s arrest does not share much when it comes to the men he cited who were arrested prior to him.

Stone was woken up by an FBI SWAT team and escorted outside his home by agents who then brought him before a judge.

Bin Laden was shot to death by Navy SEALS.

While in the most recent arrest of El Chapo, the drug lord Joaquín Guzmán Loera, consisted of a raid by 17 Mexico Special Forces marines along with help from the Mexican Army and the Federal Police.

And the King of Cocaine, Escobar, was killed in a shootout after he escaped from prison.

Stone shared how he would have surrendered as well as worn a suit and tie for his mugshot if his attorneys had been contacted.



“It would’ve looked a lot better,” he said, siting his arrest as a “raw abuse of power.”

Stone had additional complaints on Sunday, saying how law enforcement was using “Gestapo tactics” to villainize him to potential jurors.

Gestapo tactics is defined as resembling the Nazi Gestapo, especially in the brutal suppression of opposition.

Stone’s arrest was recorded on CNN and displayed throughout the country.

Stone shared how it “was an expensive show of force to try to depict me as public enemy number one,” he shared on ABC News’ “This Week.”

The indictment accuses Stone of talk “to senior Trump Campaign officials” about WikiLeaks as well as providing “information it might have had that would be damaging” to Trump’s Democratic rival Hillary Clinton’s campaign prior to the election.

The indictment also states how Stone was “contacted by senior Trump Campaign officials to inquire about future releases” of information by WikiLeaks.

Stone’s attorney, Grant Smith, said in a statement how there was no collusion with Russia and the charges are a “a clear attempt at silencing” Stone.

On Friday, Stone said he was “falsely accused” and believes the investigation is “politically motivated.”

On Stone’s arraignment hearing this past Tuesday, magistrate judge Deborah Robinson opened with a warning, telling Stone that he would be wise to not speak out in regards to the charges in the indictment as “any statements you make may be used against you,” she stated.
