On Tuesday, a federal judge banned Republican reporter Roger Stone from publishing anything on the main social media platforms after ruling that President Donald Trump's longstanding confidant has already broken the strict line in his criminal case.
Judge Amy Berman Jackson at a hearing in Washington, a district court, went through the latest posting of Stone from his account at Instagram, which seems to violate his injunction not to speak publicly about his case.
Jackson banned Stone from publishing on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter ̵
"He seems determined to make the subject of history, "says Jackson for Stone, according to Buzzfeed News.
Stone's lawyer claims that his client's positions have no impact on the case, even if he has communicated it publicly, Buzzfeed reports.
Federal prosecutors have not called Jackson to withdraw the $ 250,000 Stone Bond Crime Bonds that would have landed Stone in jail pending trial. Instead, they asked to be cut off by his presence in the social media, Politiko reports.
Former Special Attorney, Robert Muller's prosecutors accused Stone of tampering, impeding Justice, and lying to Congress.
Stone, a well-known political operator, called a "dirty trick," had previously been dressed by the judge for his public statements on federal lawsuits.
In February, Jackson imposed a partial injunction to stop Stone from talking to the media about his case in order to avoid potential jury damage.
This measure came after Stone's indictment at the Florida federal court, where Stone immediately launched a media blitz, including interviews with Infowars' right-wing conspiracy website, public statements to reporters – and even a court-mode video
Jackson's Light it soon turned out to be insufficient to hold Stone's tongue.
At his account at Instagram Stone, he published a photo of the judge's face to what looked like cross-shot shooting, accompanied by a text attacking Muller as a "deep-dead killer," and Jackson as "appointed judge of Obama."
Ter erased the post and apologized. But Jackson dragged him to the courtroom a few days later to explain why his four-million-dollar bond should not be canceled in the light of the apparent breach of the order.
At this hearing Stone decided to take the position to make a direct mea cult of Jackson. "I am sorry for my own stupidity," he said at the odd hearing.
But his own distinction did not move the judge. – I'm not giving you another chance. I have serious doubts about learning a lesson, "Jackson said.
Although he did not cancel his connection to this hearing, Jackson significantly reinforced Stone's command to snout; he made no public statements about his criminal case or any of his participants, including Muller.
But in March, Muller's prosecutors tell Jackson about a shot by Instagram, which appears to be "put in" by the special advisor.
A few months later, federal prosecutors warned Jackson about more social media stories from Stone's accounts, claiming they had violated bail terms.
These publications contained screenshots of content critical of Muller's investigation into Russia's involvement in the presidential campaign in 2016, possible co-ordination between the Trump and the Kremlin campaign, and possible impediment to Trump's justice.
Stone's lawyers repelled, denying that the position violated the order, and accused prosecutors of "deliberate blindness," focusing on three of Stogn's positions at Instagram, ignoring the "tens of thousands of articles that are hostile to stones and other media critical of him
