Judge Scathingly Responds to Roger Stone’s Instagram Post
Roger Stone has made a career of believing that the rules don’t apply to him. This kind of attitude was in place yesterday when Stone posted what appeared to be a threat on Instagram, directed at Judge Amy Berman Jackson.
Stone eventually took down the post and apologized to the judge. The strategy did not seem to work as the Judge responded today with a demand that Stone explain his actions.
Judge Berman Jackson wrote, “Defendant is ORDERED to show cause at a hearing to be held on Thursday, February 21, 2019 at 2;30 p.m. as to why the media contact order entered in this case and/or his conditions of release should not be modified or revoked in light of the posts on his Instagram account on or about February 18, 2019.”
Oh boy. Judge Amy Berman Jackson doesn't seem happy with Roger Stone. pic.twitter.com/jCS7QJ2X2T

Stone, still under gag order, has not responded to the judge’s memo. He will have the opportunity to plead his case on Thursday afternoon.
