A week after being afforded the opportunity to argue against the idea of a gag order in his criminal case, political operative Roger Stone said that his public discussion of the case wouldn't prevent the court from finding impartial jurors.

"Until now the only public footage of the raid came from CNN, which somehow knew to arrive one hour before the Federal Bureau of Investigation got there", Carlson said, before showing a clip of Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker being asked about CNN's presence at the raid during a congressional hearing. They also downplay his fame, citing as evidence that his Instagram following is only a fraction of celebrity Kim Kardashian West's. He has pleaded not guilty to the seven criminal charges.

The 66-year-old self-proclaimed "dirty trickster" has made several media appearances since charges were announced last month, and in a Reuters interview downplayed the charges as "process crimes" that did not involve intentional lies. But Stone's attorneys say such an order would infringe on Stone's First Amendment right to free speech. "Roger Stone's Instagram following amounts to 39 thousand subscribers", Stone's attorney stated.

This was gonna be his year. "We would like to offer our honest condolences to his loved ones at this hard time". Smiling nonstop when I was with you, first time we met I felt as if I'd known you my whole life.

In the filing Friday, Stone's attorneys write that his comments don't merit a "clear and present danger to a fair trial". He would still be able to opine on "foreign relations, immigration and Tom Brady", she said, for example, but shouldn't treat his in-court proceedings "like a book tour". Owned by 21st Century Fox, FNC is available in more than 90 million homes and dominates the cable news landscape, routinely notching the top ten programs in the genre.

Stone accuses the prosecutors of "shopping for a preferred district judge". He is charged with lying about his attempts to reach WikiLeaks as it planned to publish documents stolen by the Russians in 2016. Prosecutors will respond to him about this next week. A second camera mounted on Stone's front door shows another angle of the raid.
