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

Armed FBI raid & arrest of Roger Stone caught on CCTV FOOTAGE

"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. He also deployed the classic "I'm less famous than Kim Kardashian" defense.

A federal judge shouldn't bar longtime Donald Trump confidant Roger Stone from making public statements about his criminal case in the Russian Federation investigation, his attorneys said Friday.

Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker offered testimony Friday before the House Judiciary Committee where he was pointedly asked whether CNN was tipped off about the Federal Bureau of Investigation raid of Roger Stone last month.

First, Stone raised constitutional issues with the gag order, even though Judge Amy Berman Jackson recently issued one in Paul Manafort's case.

Stone was arrested in Florida last month.

Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, and Neil Gorsuch noted their dissent but did not join the Kavanaugh opinion. And, it could show how these Justices will come down on the greatest issue of our time.

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 US election and whether Trump's campaign conspired with Moscow.

His speech shouldn't be restricted, because his lifeblood is writing and speaking about politics and fashion, his attorneys say.

"Almost exactly one hour later, trucks with heavily-armed men arrive in front of Roger Stone's house. On the ground was a large metal device used to break down a door which was unnecessary", Stone told Sinclair Broadcast Group. Prosecutors are not asking for a blanket ban on Stone appearing publicly or discussing matters unrelated to his case.

"For context, Roger Stone is a senior citizen accused of false statements to Congress. Take a look at what happened".

Jackson was assigned Stone's case because of its relation to the hacking case in which she also presides. But in a separate filing Friday, Stone argued prosecutors have not produced sufficient evidence to show the relation.
