These are just some of the unusual basic rules, the Obama appointed US District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson for the widely anticipated trial against former trump confidant Roger stone, begins on Tuesday in Washington.

Stone, a longtime Republican party, provocateur and part-time fashion critic, is accused of lying about his aspirations to be a Russian-hacked Hillary Clinton emails for political purposes.

Immediately after his arrest in a dramatic night-time RAID by a heavily armed Federal tactical team in January, stone of fighters and the defiant, even the flashing of the infamous Richard Nixon’s “V-sign” in front of a crowd of photographers. Then, a month later, stone Jackson awakened ‘s ire at stone’ s Instagram hosted a photo to show Jackson with gun crosshairs behind her.

“Legal Tricks, the Deep state” hitman Robert Müller has assured that my upcoming show trial before judge Amy Berman Jackson, Obama-appointed judge, which was dismissed Benghazi against Hillary Clinton-a prisoner, Paul Manafort prior to his conviction for a criminal offence,” Stone’s post, overwritten.

Stone apologized, but Jackson spent quickly, a gag order barring the stone of the social media — injured the stone repeatedly, also by the prompt Müller “crooked” in a book.

“So, what should I do with you?” an unnerved judge Jackson said listen at a pre-trial detention. “It seems as if, for once, I’m wrestling with the behavior that has more to do with the middle school as a court of law. It is tempting to ignore it completely, but if I do not respect and maintain my own orders, why should I expect someone else to?”

“What am I supposed to do with you?”

Jackson added: “they have not shown that they are ready to stop talking about the investigation, which means that you are willing to conform their behavior to the orders of the court. The goal was to draw maximum attention to what they see as shortcomings in the investigation.”

Stone to the charges in January, was an offshoot of the Special Counsel, Robert Mueller investigation and judge Jackson ruled that Stone’s legal team would have access to most of the redacted materials in Müller’s report in respect of the preparation of his defense.


Stone is accused of conspiracy with WikiLeaks says the anti-secrecy website published E-Mails from Democrats during the 2016 campaign, or with the Russian officers, Müller hacked you. Instead, he is accused of lying about his interactions in connection with WikiLeaks’ publication while the probes by Congress and the Müller team.

Trump, for his part, has said that the stone was aligned wrongly. Stone arrest in the hands of heavily armed police officers, the President said, was unusual, because “drug dealers and human traffickers to be treated better.” (The President noted that it was odd that CNN were the cameras in the time of the dawn raid.)

A self-proclaimed dirty trickster with a flair for public drama, stone has a history in Republican political circles Dating back to the Nixon administration. He emerged as an early public supporter of trump, and has repeatedly criticized the case against him.

“I will defeat you in the court,” stone said earlier this year. “This is a politically motivated investigation.”

Stone, a longtime friend of the President, in short, served on the trump campaign, but pushed was right in the middle of the power manager Corey Lewandowski battles with the campaign. Although a sideline, he continued to communicate with Trump and remained locked in the circle of his advisers.

The indictment says the stone again and again, to be discussed WikiLeaks in 2016 with the campaign staff and specifies in detail the stone, the conversations over E-Mails stolen and in the Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta and written in the weeks before the Trump Clinton beat.


After WikiLeaks on 22. July 2016, released hacked E-Mails from the Democratic National Committee, the indictment says, a senior trump campaign officially was “directed” to contact stone about further releases and “what other harmful information,” WikiLeaks “about the Clinton campaign.” In the indictment, not the name of the official or say, who headed the public relations to stone.

Stone is also accused of threatening a New York radio host Randy Credico, in an effort to prevent Credico of contradiction-stone of the hearing before the House intelligence committee.

Prosecutors claimed that the stone under pressure Credico “a Frank Pentangeli set” in his testimony, to provide a reference to a character from the 1974 film “The godfather, part II”, the soft back, his plans Congress with a incriminating testimony on the Corleone crime family.


Lawyers for the government suggested that the trial of the “Pentangeli” clip while stone’s. But judge Jackson ruled last month that they could do so, unfairly prejudice jurors.

“The government is not permitted, the introduction of the clip ruled in his case in chief, since the adverse effect of the video tape that outweighs a number of extraneous things, the strength of evidence,” Jackson Monday.

You have to say, however, that prosecutors can get a transcript of the scene.
