Roger Stone placed under gag order after posting photo of judge, crosshairs

WASHINGTON  — Trump confidant Roger Stone says he made an egregious mistake by posting an Instagram photo of the judge presiding over his criminal case with what appears to be the crosshairs of a gun.

During a tense court hearing Thursday, Stone said there was no excuse for his post Monday about U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson.

Jackson wanted Stone in court Thursday to show why she shouldn’t modify or revoke his bail or implement a full gag order in his case.

The political operative and self-described dirty trickster has pleaded not guilty to charges he lied to Congress, engaged in witness tampering and obstructed a congressional investigation into possible co-ordination between Russia and Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.
