Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Friday night aired video of the FBI's arrest of President Trump's longtime adviser Roger Stone, questioning the agency's show of force - and why a CNN camera crew was at the scene an hour before authorities arrived just before dawn on January 25.

Fox News' Tucker Carlson aired the footage during his show Friday night, saying, "The footage depicts what you'd expect if the Federal Bureau of Investigation raided the home of a Mexican drug lord".

The show of force has prompted criticism of the tactics of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's office.

"For context, Roger Stone is a senior citizen accused of false statements to Congress. Take a look at what happened".

All of the men have a side arm holstered on their waists.

In filing later Friday, prosecutors said they wouldn't oppose Jackson issuing a "narrowly-tailored" gag order that seeks to keep Stone from using media coverage to his advantage in the court case. It looks like a high-stakes raid, but CNN's cameraman is still 40 feet away filming it all. Behind the property, a boat arrives with at least two agents on board. But it wasn't CNN that scored an exclusive video of Stone being walked from the home by agents. He comes out with his hands raised above his head and is put in handcuffs. Another FBI agent approaches Stone from behind and cuffs him. It's still dark out. Twenty minutes later, the same camera shows agents leading Roger Stone back into his house. "By contrast, Roger Stone has no Twitter account at all and, thus has no Twitter followers", Stone's attorney said.

"An example of how limited and narrow his public presence is, is that Kim Kardashian has 59.5 million followers on Twitter", Stone's court filing said.

"I am aware of that and it was deeply concerning to me as to how CNN found out about that", Whitaker said. The number one network in cable, FNC has been the most watched television news channel for more than 16 years and according to a Suffolk University/USA Today poll, is the most trusted television news source in the country.
