Former Trump adviser Stone ordered to appear in court over Instagram posts

•, Sarah N. Lynch

U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson said Stone would need to show cause at a hearing on Thursday as to why the posts did not violate a gag order in the case or the conditions of his release.

Stone, who is free on a $250,000 bond and is free to travel to certain U.S. cities without the court's permission, has pleaded not guilty to charges of making false statements to Congress, obstruction and witness tampering as part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

Stone's attorneys filed a formal apology with the court on Monday, after he posted a photograph on Instagram of Jackson alongside what appeared to be the crosshairs of a gun.

He later deleted the image and reposted it without the crosshairs before removing it again, according to other media outlets.

Good way for Stone to make some money. First, confirm with the judge that it is an order. Then, invoice the judge for obeying the order, and require the judge to put up her bond as collateral until the invoice is paid. - After all, you follow orders at work, and your boss pays you, right? After all, the 13th Amendment forbids slavery and involuntary servitude. Following court orders requires being paid, because they are orders. Even soldiers get paid. But you have to demand the pay.
