A judge has ruled that there is no evidence that the government leaked news of Roger Stone’s arrest to CNN, who happened to have a crew outside his Florida home at the time of his arrest.

  • Stone, who was arrested in a pre-dawn raid Jan. 25, 2019 as the result of the Robert Mueller probe, had filed a complaint that the government purposefully leaked news of its plans to CNN, who captured dark video and muffled audio of the takedown.
  • Judge Amy Berman Jackson issued a ruling saying there was no evidence that CNN was given any head’s up.
  • CNN, meanwhile, has maintained that its crew was outside of Stone’s home as the result of careful reporting and observations — and a little bit of luck.
