Stone says he should be free to speak in Russian Federation probe case

U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson, an Obama appointee who is also overseeing the case against Paul Manafort, had stated in court February 1 that she was concerned that Stone and his lawyers could taint the potential jury pool if they continued talking about the case publicly and gave them until February 8 to state their opinion on a gag order.

Those appearances caught the judge's attention last week when she encouraged Stone not to treat his case like a "book tour".

She asked each side to inform her of its position on a proposal to set a gag order by Friday.

"The order would be supported by a finding that there is a substantial likelihood that extrajudicial comments by trial participants will undermine a fair trial", Mueller's team said.

Stone, 66, a longtime GOP operative and self-described "dirty trickster", has pleaded not guilty to charges of lying about his efforts to gather information about hacked Democratic Party emails that were published by the WikiLeaks organization.

"An example of how limited and narrow his public presence is, is that Kim Kardashian has 59.5 million followers on Twitter. Roger Stone's Instagram following amounts to 39 thousand subscribers".

Besides, Stone wants to be heard even while he's under indictment.

Stone faces charges of making false statements to Congress, obstruction and witness tampering in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russia's role in the 2016 USA election and whether Trump's campaign conspired with Moscow.

In their eight-page response Friday, Stone's defense said Stone should be "entitled to speak as he wishes" absent convincing evidence that his statements would make it impossible to seat an impartial jury. The case is against Roger Jason Stone Jr.

"To foreclose Mr. Stone's exercise of his First Amendment rights on any subject would serve no compelling governmental interest", his attorneys wrote.

Stone's attorneys added that no court order would limit outside commentators.

More agents came via boat behind Stone's home.

Mr. Stone was indicted as a result of the Justice Department's investigation into the 2016 race being led by Robert Mueller, a former FBI director appointed special counsel in May 2017, making him the 34th person charged in the probe's 21-month history.

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".

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.

Stone is suspected of lying about his contacts with Julian Assange and of speaking with Trump about pending WikiLeaks dumps that might have damaged election opponent Hillary Clinton.

Moscow has repeatedly denied the allegations. "It's called politics, and they haven't criminalized it, at least not yet", Stone said a week ago on ABC's "This Week".
