Roger Stone posted a picture on his Instagram Monday of U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson, the federal judge presiding over his case, with crosshairs in the corner.
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. He ends his post with his classic digital panhandling for his legal defense fund.
Here’s a screenshot of the now-deleted Instagram post:
The post comes just days after Jackson instituted a partial gag order against Stone and advised him not to make comments that would endanger his own case.
“Finally, while it is not up to the Court to advise the defendant as to whether a succession of public statements would be in his best interest at this time, it notes that one factor that will be considered in the evaluation of any future request for relief based on pretrial publicity will be the extent to which the publicity was engendered by the defendant himself,” she said in the order.
