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

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

He noted that prior restraints against free speech must be addressed with strict scrutiny, and that there must be "a clear and present danger to the seating of an impartial jury", in order to keep him from talking.

"While Roger Stone may be familiar to those who closely follow American politics, he is hardly ubiquitous in the larger landscape of popular consciousness", his attorneys wrote.

Although Jackson yet to respond to Stone's objections, she did touch on the potential gag order last week. He faces charges of lying, obstruction and witness tampering, including by pressuring another witness to lie or refuse to talk to Congress. That's what Stone's lawyers stressed to a federal judge Friday.

"Roger Stone has faith in the jury system and in the mechanics of jury selection which are created to ensure a fair trial".

Armed FBI raid & arrest of Roger Stone caught on CCTV FOOTAGE A CCTV video has emerged of the pre-dawn arrest of former Trump adviser Roger Stone that shows the self-styled "dirty trickster" being handcuffed in his boxers in his front yard by heavily-armed FBI agents.

Jackson drew the Stone case because prosecutors designated it as related to the Mueller probe prosecution of a dozen Russian military intelligence officers indicted in July on charges of hacking and sharing Democrats' computers and emails to disrupt the 2016 election.




The case is USA v.

Prosecutors have tied that case to Stone's, saying they share a common search warrant and involve activities that are "part of the same alleged criminal event or transaction". Stone, who is accused of seeking to discredit Hillary Clinton's campaign, has made a string of media appearances since then, denying conspiracy accusations.

Stone's lawyers also filed an objected to Jackson presiding over the case considering her involvement in other Mueller indictments, Politico reports.

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. But in a separate filing Friday, Stone argued prosecutors have not produced sufficient evidence to show the relation.

Stone, who remains free on $250,000 bond, has said he did nothing more than exercise his First Amendment rights to drum up interest with voters about the WikiLeaks disclosures.

Carlson also took issue with the way the raid was conducted.
