Hannity: If Stone’s arrest is a sign, we’ve “lost our country”

In an impassioned op-ed on FoxNews.com, Sean Hannity says he sees the arrest of presidential advisor Roger Stone a sign of the ongoing witch hunt against President Trump:

Last week’s pre-dawn raid on Stone home in Fort Lauderdale featured 17 vehicles, including armored tactical trucks. There were 27 heavily armed agents – I don’t blame them, they don’t have a choice when they’re told to do something – in tactical gear with weapons drawn.

For lying to Congress?

Stone got the same treatment as Manafort and Trump’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen. All the other people who lied to Congress or to FISA judges got a pass. Roger Stone committed no violent crime. He’s not a drug dealer or a drug kingpin. He’s not a Mafioso or a gangster. He’s not El Chapo. He may have lied to Congress.

All the police had to do was call his lawyer, Hannity argues. A raid wasn’t necessary.

Hannity sees Stone’s treatment as a symptom of something deeper and darker:

There’s a danger here. We are a democratic republic. The Constitution that we cherish so much is the foundation of all law and order in this country. If you don’t apply the laws equally, only going after one group of people because of their political views, and you protect people with other political views, you’ve lost our Constitution. We’ve lost our country.

Without equal application of our laws and equal justice under the law, there’s one thing left to say to our great nation: Goodbye.
