Judge Reams Stone For His Delayed Notice Of His Mueller-Bashing Book Intro

A federal judge took Roger Stone to task Tuesday for his delay in notifying her about a book introduction he wrote bashing the special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe — an introduction that appeared to be at odds with a gag order the judge had imposed in his case.

U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson denied Stone’s request that she clarify that his work on the re-release of the the book — which republished last month under a new title, “The Myth of Russian Collusion” — did not constitute a violation of the gag order. She also suggested that his request, first filed under seal last week, may have been a gambit to gin up publicity about the book.



“In either event, there is no question that the order prohibited and continues to prohibit the defendant from making any public statements, using any medium, concerning the investigation,” the judge said in Tuesday’s order. “It does not matter when the defendant may have first formulated the opinions expressed, or when he first put them into words: he may no longer share his views on these particular subjects with the world.”

The judge had banned Stone from commenting publicly about the case and its participants at a Feb. 21 hearing, after he had posted on Instagram an ominous photo her, with a crosshairs in its background, that was accompanied by an inflammatory caption.

7. Not true.

Stewart was convicted of conspiracy, obstruction of justice and lying to federal investigators, as follows.

Conspiracy: Stewart was found to have conspired with her broker to obstruct justice and make false statements in the ImClone insider trading investigation.
Obstruction of justice: Stewart was found to have tried to hamper the SEC investigation of her stock sale by providing misleading information and attempting to tamper with a phone message from her broker.
Lying: Stewart was found to have lied to the SEC, the FBI, and federal prosecutors when she claimed she had prearranged with her broker to sell her ImClone stock when it fell below $60 per share. She was also found to have lied about not recalling being told that the family of ImClone's founder was selling stock.

8. She certainly deserved her jail time, but Roger Stone has been interferring with

our political system since Nixon's time. How many breaks does this man get? You know he's been profiting from FORTY years of manipulations.

9. You know, of course, that isn't how our legal system works.

If Stone is jailed it will be because of actions he has taken in dereliction of the court's gag order. Nothing more, nothing less. Whatever he did in the past plays absolutely no role.

11. I see a problem with that.

It's like he has pushed the limits farther and farther each time he got away with another mean-spirited election. And this time around his participation helped push Trump over the edge - and suddenly we wake up.

I am willing to bet that the day the man writes the full story of his behind the scenes activity, we'll be scratching our heads and wonder why no one bothered to investigate him sooner.

5. Unless Stone is incarcerated

He will learn the only valuable lesson from his point of view. That is: The Judge doesn’t really mean it when she threatens me... Good!

10. The judge is being careful and deliberate as she should.

There is a tension between gag orders and the first amendment. She's collecting all of the evidence she needs before making her ruling.

16. Fair enough...

But she previously said - “I’m giving you a second chance. This isn’t baseball, there won’t be a third.” If she fails to follow through, Stone will assume he can ignore any further warnings from the judge as idle threats. FWIW - the terms of his bail were written by his lawyers and agreed to by the court.

If you or I violated the conditions of our bail, we would not be given the same leeway that Stone, or any other millionaire for that matter, is being shown.

15. Trump "didn't rule out a pardon for Roger Stone"..but merely said he "hasn't thought about it"

LIAR-IN-CHIEF:
"I have not thought about it..It looks like he's defending himself very well," Trump told CBS's Face the Nation.
