In a tweet Saturday, the president said “if Roger Stone was indicted for lying to Congress, what about the lying done by Comey, Brennan, Clapper, Lisa Page and Lover, Baker and so many others.”

He added “what about Hillary to FBI and her 33,000 deleted emails, what about Lisa and Peter’s deleted texts and Weiners laptop, much more.”

The tweet comes after Roger Stone’s arrest and indictment Friday for alleged obstruction of justice and lying to Congress.

Stone has denied all accusations and plans to plead not guilty to the charges.
