President Trump on Friday questioned who tipped off CNN to be at the pre-dawn arrest of his former adviser Roger Stone.

“Greatest Witch Hunt in the History of our Country! NO COLLUSION! Border Coyotes, Drug Dealers and Human Traffickers are treated better. Who alerted CNN to be there?” Trump tweeted referencing the indictment of Stone on charges related to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia collusion probe. 

CNN cameras were set up at the house where Stone was arrested in Fort Lauderdale, capturing “exclusive” footage.

A producer for the network denied they were tipped off, instead attributing their presence to a “reporter’s instinct” and “unusual grand jury activity in Washington D.C.” on Thursday.

But a lot of people are questioning that explanation. 

Stone’s attorney, Grant Smith, released a statement about his indictment saying "no Russian collusion" was found "or they would have charged him with it."
