Trump Adviser Stone to Judge: I Don't Need Gag Order

Trump Adviser Stone to Judge: I Don't Need Gag Order

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.

Stone accuses the prosecutors of "shopping for a preferred district judge". "By contrast, Roger Stone has no Twitter account at all and, thus has no Twitter followers", Stone's attorney said.

His attorney pointed out that Stone's career is writing about politics and he is familiar to those following the United States politics, but argued that the consultant is "hardly ubiquitous in the larger landscape of popular consciousness".

In saying he should be free to comment during his case, Stone's defense team played down his celebrity and the impact his comments might have on potential jurors.

"On Instagram, Kim Kardashian has 126 million followers", the filing pointed out.

Stone then argued why there could be no such danger, because while he's well-known in political circles and by those who follow politics, his fame is nothing compared to Kim Kardashian. "Roger Stone's Instagram following amounts to 39 thousand subscribers".

Jackson was assigned Stone's case because of its relation to the hacking case in which she also presides.

Agents later walk Stone back into his home, still handcuffed, for unknown reasons.

Mr. Stone was indicted as a result of the Justice Department's investigation into the 2016 race being led by Robert Mueller, a former FBI director appointed special counsel in May 2017, making him the 34th person charged in the probe's 21-month history. And she's had no proceedings to handle yet in the Russian hacking case, since the Russian defendants have not been arrested. Stone faces no charges in connection with the hack - though he was mentioned anonymously in their indictment as communicating with the Russians. The case is against Roger Jason Stone Jr.

However, his lawyers added, "At first blush and without the benefit of discovery, there is nothing about these cases that suggests they are suitably related, other than they are both brought by the Office of Special Counsel". "It's called politics, and they haven't criminalized it, at least not yet", Stone said a week ago on ABC's "This Week".

"Roger Stone's middle name is Joseph, not Jason", the attorneys wrote to the judge.
