Trump adviser Stone: I'm not Kim Kardashian, don't need gag order

Matthew Whitaker acting U.S. attorney general testifies during a House Judiciary Committee hearing in Washington D.C. U.S. on Friday. Feb. 8 2019. Whitaker has agreed to appear defusing at least for the moment a charged partisan debate over threat

The defence team of Donald Trump's former political adviser Roger Stone, accused of obstruction of justice, has launched an offensive against a federal judge considering restricting his communications over the criminal case.

"Until now the only public footage of the raid came from CNN, which somehow knew to arrive one hour before the Federal Bureau of Investigation got there", Carlson said, before showing a clip of Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker being asked about CNN's presence at the raid during a congressional hearing. But while he's known in some circles, Stone is nowhere near as famous as Kim Kardashian, his attorneys argued. The lobbyist pleaded not guilty and vowed to "tell the truth" throughout the process.

Like many conservatives, Carlson has raised suspicions that Stone's arrest was politically motivated. He noted that prior restraints against free speech must be addressed with strict scrutiny, and that there must be "a clear and present danger to the seating of an impartial jury", in order to keep him from talking. Stone, meanwhile, has no Twitter presence (he was banned by the service in 2017).

Canada jobless rate rises despite surge in employment
The national unemployment rate was 5.8 per cent in January, up from the 43-year low of 5.6 per cent in December. In Brantford, Statistics Canada estimates that 1,600 job seekers found work in January.

"On Instagram, Kim Kardashian has 126 million followers", the filing pointed out. He would still be able to opine on "foreign relations, immigration and Tom Brady", she said, for example, but shouldn't treat his in-court proceedings "like a book tour". One agent swings the firearm around as he scans and surveys Stone's front porch. USA intelligence officials claim the emails were stolen during Russian cyber-attacks on Clinton and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) servers. Stone faces no charges in connection with the hack - though he was mentioned anonymously in their indictment as communicating with the Russians. Prosecutors will respond to him about this next week. Yet, Stone said he was still shocked when he opened the door. The case is against Roger Jason Stone Jr.

The special counsel's office declined to comment.
