Donald Trump is calling for an audit of the Federal Reserve.
The GOP frontrunner said it was important to audit the Fed and even called out his rival, Sen. Ted Cruz, for skipping a vote on Sen. Rand Paul’s “Audit the Fed” proposal back in Jan.
“It is so important to audit the Federal Reserve, and yet Ted Cruz missed the vote on the bill that would allow this to be done,” Trump tweeted out.
During Friday’s appearance on the Alex Jones Show, Trump insider Roger Stone was asked if Trump would call for an audit, and Stone said that he thought so but would pass the message along to the Trump campaign.
“He’s not a big fan of the Fed,” Stone pointed out. “He is scaring the central bankers; he is scaring the Washington/Wall Street/D.C. consultant/lobbyist class.”
“He’s deeply suspicious of the Fed and I think he is open-minded about the Fed… I’d suspect you’d get an audit of the Fed [with Trump].”

Commentary from Mike B: This is another litmus test. The last president to try and take on the Fed was JFK, and we all know how that went. This comes just a week after he calls for release redacted pages of the 9/11 Commission Report to “show you who really knocked down the towers.”
Infowars radio host Alex Jones says Trump is like on a “suicide mission” and reports are Trump wears a bullet proof vest and packs heat everywhere he goes. Me personally, I see he could have easily disappeared on some island with all his money and pretty wife. Instead he’s a presidential front runner pressing all of the establishment’s most sensitive buttons. If he’s not for real, he sure is taking some shots at the establishment. Stay tuned …
