Let’s see how long this gag order lasts.

Courtesy of NBC News:

A federal judge banned Roger Stone from speaking publicly about his case on Thursday, after hauling him back to court to answer for an Instagram post attacking her.

“Publicity cannot subside if it’s the defendant that’s fanning the flames,” district Judge Amy Berman Jackson said Thursday.

Before her ruling, Jackson said the former Trump adviser “couldn’t keep his story straight on the stand” when she allowed him the opportunity to explain his decision to post an image of her on social media with what appeared to be the crosshairs of a gun near her head.

The photo, posted to Stone’s Instagram account earlier this week, was accompanied by a caption in which he suggested Jackson was politically biased, slammed Robert Mueller’s Russia probe and sought donations for his legal defense.

“I am hurtfully sorry for my own stupidity. I am kicking myself, not as much as my wife is kicking me,” Stone told the court. He called the Instagram post “a momentary lapse of judgment” before saying that the photo was selected by someone who works for him, which he estimated was about “five or six people.”

Stone said he was broke and struggling from the stress of the prosecution.

“I heard political commentators talking about the likelihood that I’ll be raped in prison. It’s been a stressful situation. I’m having a hard time putting food on the table and making rent,” he said.

Yeah, he probably should be worried about being raped in prison. 

However Stone also claimed that he did not mean the Instagram post as a threat and thought the crosshairs symbol was a “Celtic” cross, so clearly, he is not so worried about prison rape that he is unwilling to lie. 

It is doubtful that Stone will be able to follow the Judge’s new directive anymore than he was able to follow her last one.

For instance, this is what Stone emailed out to his supporters today before his court appearance:

Dear Friend,

By the time you read this, I may well have been gagged by an Obama-appointed Federal Judge.

Given my long-time association with President Trump, can I get a fair trial in the District of Columbia where Hillary Clinton got 90% of the vote and Republican voter registration is 6%?

The real reason they want to gag me is so I cannot raise the money necessary to mount a vigorous legal defense.

The Mueller hit-team has unlimited taxpayer financing and a platoon of left-wing Ivy League lawyers to prosecute me. In fact, the two lawyers leading my prosecution both worked previously for Hillary Clinton!

Two years under intense investigation for non-existent Russian collusion and allegations of collaboration with Wikileaks and the constant fake news leaks have driven my family and me to the brink of bankruptcy. I have lost my insurance and was forced to sell my car to pay my lawyers. I am broke after having to pay over $500,000 to my attorneys to defend myself against harassment lawsuits by the Democrats and the witch hunt investigations of the House and Senate. I am literally living on peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

Just the same, I will fight these politically motivated charges. I was proud when President Trump praised my “guts” and the fact that I refuse to make up stories about him to ease the legal threat to myself.

I am accused of lying to Congress, yet Democrats Comey, McCabe, Clapper, Brennan, and Hillary Clinton lied to Congress and have never been charged. I didn’t lie but I am facing personal and financial ruin.

The email then goes on to brag that he effectively helped to defeat Hillary Clinton and to ask for donations to help him fight for his freedom. 

So yeah, this gag order is not going to shut him up for long.

    Republicans learn that crosshairs symbol before they learn the alphabet, or learn how to walk, or even how to recognize mother.

    Murder and guns is what they do and what they are.

    Look no further than Palin.

      That dumb bitch is a sheep. She couldn’t lead herself out of a wet paper bag. Enough with the Sarah drivel. We get it. You hate her.

    Deplorable fucker will never learn. Just whine about how everyone is unfair to him. Despite all the rotten, disgusting shenanigans that he perpetrated on others his whole life.
    Tricky Dick on the back just says it all, doesn’t it?
    Too bad. So sad and don’t forget to pack the vaseline.
    POS

    I think the judge should have thrown him in jail and hidden the keys. To date Stone has shown absolutely no respect for the law and I don’t expect him to shut up now. He’ll find ways to express his ugly words and the media will lap it up. It would help if reporters didn’t constantly follow him around with their microphones and notepads at the ready. Has Stone ever said anything truthful or worthwhile? I think he needs some time in jail – out of the limelight which he craves and without an audience which he also craves. He might just shrivel up and disappear.

    Is Monday taken in the pool yet? Or do we have to be more specific and offer a time? I think the judge is going to be gracious and spend tomorrow washing the stench of this guy off before having a relaxing weekend. Her clerks and Mueller’s team will likely wait until Monday morning to break the news that Stone (unsurprisingly) couldn’t keep his mouth shut and needs to be picked up.

    “Yeah, yeah, it’s not crosshairs … it’s a celtic cross! No, it’s the X-men symbol, that’s the ticket! I was trying to say you’re a superhero, Judge! By the way, have you met my wife – Mirgan Fairchild?”
    How stupid does he think the judge and the general public are? Notice I didn’t include the Republican base, because we’ve already determined they’re almost terminally stupid.

      Sarah Palin called them surveyor’s marks when she was caught with Gabby Gifford’s in her US map full of crosshairs, or “surveyor’s marks.”

        Palin calls murdering “surveying”?

        • Anon February 22, 2019 at 12:58 pm

          She has to look it up before speaking. Lol. Sarah is an imbecile. She has no leadership skills. Always a whiner. Never a Leader. She quit for Russia. Now look at her. And them. HAHA.

    “When you have a federal judge — who is not a Mueller prosecutor, but a federal judge — say to him and say to the court he can’t keep his story straight today, is she implying he could commit a new crime in that courtroom?”

    “Any violation of this order will be a basis for revoking your bond,”
    “From this moment on the defendant may not speak publicly about the investigation of this case,”

    And he can’t have his friends be surrogates for him either. Yeah, Poor ole Roger will violate this order too. I think it won’t be too long before the judge revokes his bail.

    Bradley P. Moss, a national security lawyer, noted that not only did Stone’s lawyers admit “that there was no leak to CNN,” but also that “they don’t think DOJ had the authority to send out the press release and Complaint when it did based on the language of the sealing order.” “Oh how far the conspiracy nutbags have fallen,”

    He won’t keep his mouth shut. I hope the next time she hauls his ass in she does a Judge Judy, tells him to sit down and shut up, then has the baliffs come in and haul him away. Forfeit his bond and sit in prison until his trial date. Give him a chance to get used to the accommodations he’ll be enjoying for the rest of his life.
