Trump ally Roger Stone is scheduled to appear before federal Judge Amy Berman Jackson on Thursday.

"Through legal trickery Deep State hitman Robert Mueller has guaranteed that my upcoming show trial is before Judge Amy Berman Jackson, an Obama appointed Judge who dismissed the Benghazi charges again Hillary Clinton and incarcerated Paul Manafort prior to his conviction for any crime", the post read.

Stone has maintained his innocence and blasted the special counsel's investigation as politically motivated.

On Tuesday, Stone posted a photo of a book he received from a supporter, writing in an Instagram post that he was praying that it "protects me from the fake news media who are smearing me and purposely misinterpreting everything I say".

Borger said the crux of Stone's problem was that the image originated on his personal phone, and while Stone claims a volunteer posted it, "he can't quite figure out who it was, even though it happened just days ago".

Jackson ordered Stone to court to show why she shouldn't modify or revoke his bail or implement a full gag order. Jackson had previously placed an order prohibiting Stone and all other parties in his case from making public comments outside the D.C. federal courthouse.

"I am kicking myself over my own stupidity", Stone said, according to report Zoe Tillman. Stone has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Visitors to the festival were charged up to £22 for a ticket and a further £20 each for wristbands to take part in attractions. With legal proceedings looming, however, the future of Fortnite Live looks about as bleak as the event itself.

Although criminal defendants typically shun the media spotlight, the 66-year-old self-proclaimed Republican "dirty trickster" has embraced it and made numerous media appearances since his January 25 arrest. Stone's attorneys also are restricted in how much they can discuss the case publicly. He later took down that version and reposted it without the crosshairs, before taking down the post a second time. Stone has less restrictive bail that now allows him to travel around Washington, DC, New York City and his home in south Florida.

She made it very clear, that she did not believe Roger Stone testifying today.

"How hard was it to come up with a photo that didn't have the crosshairs in the corner?" Jackson has asked if the post should affect his release terms or his gag order.

Stone's lawyers apologized to Jackson for the "improper photograph and comment" in a "notice of apology" filed with the court Monday.

Stone later said: "I have no rationalization or excuse".

Prosecutor Jonathan Kravis, however, called on the judge to put tighter restrictions on Stone's communications, saying his testimony "was not credible".
