Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham wants the FBI to explain why President Donald Trump’s longtime associate, Roger Stone, was arrested in the early morning hours last week and whether the media was tipped off beforehand.

In a letter sent to FBI director Christopher Wray Wednesday, Graham (R-S.C.) to explain whether the arrest was consistent with arrests of “similarly charged individuals.” He also asked why the FBI arrested Stone at his home instead of working through his lawyers “to permit him to surrender voluntary.”

“The American public has had enough of the media circus that surrounds the Special Counsel's investigation,” Graham wrote, referring to Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. “Yet, the manner of this arrest appears to have only added to the spectacle. Accordingly, I write to seek justification for the tactics used and the timing of the arrest of Mr. Stone.”

Roger Stone is a professional liar and self-proclaimed dirty trickster who is caught up in a possible plot with a foreign power. That Graham is advancing the story that this miscreant should have been handled differently than anyone else in a similar situation tells you everything you need to know about the GOP's recent conversion to civil liberties.

Graham is going to be a real piece of work these next two years.
