    Roger Stone ordered to appear in court over Instagram post targeting judge

    Stone has formally apologized for the post, which showed the judge with what appeared to be crosshairs near her head

    Donald Trump’s longtime confidant Roger Stone was ordered to appear in court Thursday after a post he made on Instagram targeting the judge in his case.

    Federal judge Amy Berman Jackson issued the order Tuesday, saying Stone must appear to make the case “as to why the media contact order entered in this case and/or his conditions of release should not be modified or revoked in light of the posts on his Instagram account on or about February 18, 2019.”


    Stone is due in court Thursday at 2.20pm.


    Stone has formally apologized for the since-deleted Instagram post, which showed Jackson with what appeared to be crosshairs near her head. His attorneys filed papers with the court Monday saying “he hereby apologizes to the court for the improper photograph and comment posted on Instagram today”.


    “Mr Stone recognizes the impropriety and had it removed,” the lawyers wrote. He has denied the post was intended as a threat.


    Stone is charged with lying to Congress about his communications with Wikileaks during the 2016 election. He’s also charged with witness tampering and obstruction of an official proceeding.


    WikiLeaks published emails from Democrats believed to have been hacked by Russia in an attempt to help Trump win the election.


    The judge issued a limited gag order in the case, ordering the talkative Stone to stay quiet about the case in and around the courthouse, but she stopped short of imposing a broad ban on public comments.


    She could now choose to impose a more sweeping gag order or tighten the conditions of Stone’s bail, which allows him to travel with some restrictions. Stone has pled not guilty to the charges and is free on $250,000 bond.

    He's such a fucking tit. He realised that he'd fucked up, removed the picture with the cross hairs, then the dumbass cropped it and posted it again.

    This is the judge that put Manafort in jail for bail violation. I really hope she puts this twat in stir as well, that would be hilarious.

    Bet Stone is in jail by tomorrow night.

    Mueller tells judge of new Roger Stone post on Instagram

    Roger Stone is under fire for possible violations of his court-imposed gag order after a weekend social media post suggested he’d been “framed” in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation and ahead of the imminent re-release of a book he co-wrote that explores the “myth of Russian collusion.”


    The longtime Donald Trump associate remains under a Feb. 21 order from U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson that bans him from making public comments of any kind about his upcoming criminal trial on charges of lying
    to Congress and obstructing lawmakers’ Russia probe.

    But Stone on several recent occasions has already tested the limits of the gag order — which did allow him to continue speaking about matters unrelated to the Russia investigation, and also to make statements to raise money for his legal defense fund and to explain in simple terms that he had entered a plea of not guilty.


    In a filing with Jackson on Monday, Mueller’s office pointed to public reporting that Stone on Sunday had posted an image to his Instagram account with the words “who framed Roger Stone.”


    The special counsel’s office took no other position on the post, which was made on the same social media platform as a controversial image that landed Stone in trouble last month because it featured Jackson with what appeared to be a gun’s crosshairs above her head. Stone deleted that image and replaced it with one without the crosshairs. He then later deleted that second Instagram post.

    the last time he violated the gag order the judge said something along the lines of, "this isn't baseball, you don't get a third strike...two and you're out".

    well, this was the second.

    even the nixon foundation doesn't want anything to do with roger stone:

    "This morning's widely-circulated characterization of Roger Stone as a Nixon campaign aide or adviser is a gross misstatement. Mr. Stone was 16 years old during the Nixon presidential campaign of 1968 and 20 years old during the reelection campaign of 1972. Mr. Stone, during his time as a student at George Washington University, was a junior scheduler on the Nixon reelection committee. Mr. Stone was not a campaign aide or adviser. Nowhere in the Presidential Daily Diaries from 1972 to 1974 does the name 'Roger Stone' appear."
