CBS Pesters Chris Christie for Daring to Question Gun-Drawn Stone Raid


[See NewsBusters for more.] The journalists at CBS This Morning couldn’t quite believe that Chris Christie would challenge the guns-drawn, predawn raid on Roger Stone.  Co-host Norah O’Donnell icily deemed it “interesting” that the former New Jersey governor offered a different take. Christie appeared to discuss his new book, but more than half of the interview was spent on the Stone raid. John Dickerson wondered, “Roger Stone is complaining about the way he was treated, that predawn raid. Is that out of the ordinary?” Christie claimed that, as a former prosecutor, he would only authorize an armed raid if the suspect owned a gun. (Stone did not.) The former governor called it “over the top,” prompting O’Donnell to interject: “But our CBS' Jeff Pegues reports that Roger Stone has told him that in fact the FBI came in and seized electronic devices, multiple cell phones that he had. Could that have been the purpose of the raid?”
