“I’m fighting for my life,” Stone warned in one video Tuesday, wearing a face mask emblazoned with the words “Free Roger Stone!.” In the social media messages, Stone says he is 67 years old, suffers from asthma and has a history of respiratory problems.

“Incarceration at a facility with COVID-19 during a pandemic is a deep state death sentence. Roger Stone did nothing wrong. Justice for Roger Stone,” Stone said.

Jackson seems not to have taken that representation at face value. In a brief order Tuesday night, she directed prosecutors to file something “in writing” by Thursday explaining the reasons for their stance. She has not indicated whether she plans to hold a hearing on the motion.

At Stone’s sentencing in February, Jackson acknowledged he suffered from unspecified health conditions and anxiety, but said those issues didn’t seem to prevent him from keeping up a robust travel schedule.





Further in the article the Judge noted that Stone's health has not seemed to have been "compromised" by his "Public appearances or private gatherings".
