CNN Roger Stone faces judge Thursday after Instagram posts


Stone could be in a world of hurt today.


The longtime Republican political operative and self-described "dirty trickster" faces a federal judge who wants to address his recent antics while he awaits trial. Two posts he made on Instagram on Monday could put at risk his ability to stay out of jail and the leeway he has to speak about his case publicly.

The first post was a picture of Judge Amy Berman Jackson with what appeared to be the crosshairs of a gun drawn behind her head. Stone's caption called special counsel Robert Mueller a "Deep State hitman," said his case was a "show trial" and implied that Jackson was biased as an Obama appointee and because she had ruled on a Benghazi-related case and "incarcerated Paul Manafort." "#Fixisin," Stone added to his post.


Jackson has been down this road before. In the criminal case against Stone's longtime colleague Paul Manafort, Jackson revoked Manafort's bail and sent him to jail eight months after his arrest because prosecutors accused him of attempting to reach out to witnesses.


Jackson has already warned Stone in person and in writing that he must not violate his bail terms nor draw too much attention to himself with his statements in the media. She ordered him not to speak in and around the federal courthouse, because of how court activity in his case has drawn crowds and how he stokes his followers.

Done Deal

Did yesterday's NY Time's article get to Trump?


(BTW Joe Stalin was big into using the term "the enemy of the people." Is Trump trying to get people killed?)

Trump Has Publicly Attacked the Russia Investigation More Than 1,100 Times

The attacks, which number nearly 1,200, are part of a strategy to beat back the investigations. They have also opened him to possible obstruction of justice charges. They include statements made on Twitter, in official speeches, at rallies and during news media interviews and other press events.

While it is highly unusual for anyone let alone the president of the United States to comment on continuing criminal investigations, Mr. Trump has done so at least once on 330 days, or more than 43 percent of his time in office as of Feb. 14.

Judge could revoke Roger Stone's bond and send him to jail because of 'crosshairs' Instagram post

Former campaign adviser for President Donald Trump, Roger Stone, leaves federal court in Washington, Friday, Feb. 1, 2019.
A federal judge has ordered longtime Republican operative Roger Stone to court on Thursday to explain why he should not have his criminal release bond modified or even revoked because of his recent Instagram post showing the judge next to what appeared to be a rifle scope's crosshairs.

Stone, a self-admitted dirty trickster and friend of President Donald Trump, could be sent to jail if his $250,000 signature bond is yanked by the judge, Amy Berman Jackson, who is presiding over the criminal case filed against him by special counsel Robert Mueller.

Jackson, in an order filed in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., told Stone to appear in her courtroom at 2:30 p.m. Thursday to explain why a partial gag order she has imposed on him, "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."

Remember when

My Dad's obit (update) and a short story.

As I have had to go through a solid lifetime of accumulated papers, books, and stuff of my late father
I found out 2 things:
1) He had quit being a registered as republican about 12 years ago.
2) He not only voted for Obama and Hillary but was a financial supporter of Obama too.

Columbus's Chief retires/ As a trailblazer, Chief Jacobs is the first openly gay, woman police chief


As a trailblazer, Chief Jacobs is the first openly gay, woman police chief in the division. She was also the first woman deputy chief and commander.

She joined CPD in 1979, and she first served as a patrol officer only a few years after Columbus began training women for that job.

Lieutenant Aimee Haley recognized the chief for paving the way.

"I've had the opportunity to be a police officer at CPD, not a female officer, just a police officer. Thank you for paving the way through the ranks for me and countless others," Haley said.
