Roger Stone Formally Apologizes To Judge Handling His Case

Roger Stone Attacks Judge Presiding Over His Case In Bizarre Instagram Post

He also claims it is "categorically false" to infer it was meant to threaten U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson.

In another post, Stone wrote, "What some say are cross hairs are in fact the logo of the organization that originally posted it something called corruption central". Stone, who faced immediate backlash on Twitter after posting the image, soon took the photo down.

Roger Stone ― the Republican strategist and Donald Trump associate indicted on charges stemming from special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation ― went after the federal judge presiding over his case on Instagram, publishing her picture next to what appeared to be an image of crosshairs and begging for money from his followers.

In the post, he accuses "Deep State hitman Robert Mueller" of ensuring that his case landed in her hands, since she's an Obama appointee - the implication being that she's out to get him. This was a random photo taken from the Internet. "There can be no misinterpretation since I didn't notice the symbol in the corner". "They use the logo in many photos". The photo had crosshairs appearing in the upper left corner.

Trump says Japan's Abe nominated him for Nobel Peace Prize
Contacted by Kyodo News, the Japanese Embassy in Washington said it would refrain from commenting on the issue. So, Prime Minister Abe gave me - it's the most lovely five-page letter.

Stone, 66, fired off the missive even though Jackson issued a gag order in his case Friday, barring him and his legal team from making any public statements that could "pose a substantial likelihood of material prejudice to this case". Earlier this month, Stone posted a photo of himself on Instagram with what appeared to be a large piece of gold tape over his mouth.

Stone's post, which Guardian reporter Jon Swaine characterized as "directly attacking" Jackson, drew instant reproach on social media.

Jackson is the same judge who ruled that Manafort - Stone's longtime friend and former business partner - lied to Mueller's prosecutors last week.

"I will of course continue to be judicious about my comments regarding the case", he added.
