Miami - A judge has imposed a full gag order on Trump confidant Roger Stone after he posted a photo on Instagram of the judge with what appeared to be crosshairs of a gun.

U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson said Thursday she believes Stone would “pose a danger” to others in the case if she didn’t institute the order.

Jackson ordered Stone to court to show why she shouldn’t modify or revoke his bail or implement a full gag order. The judge had already issued an order limiting comments in the case.

The 66-year-old Stone said the post was an egregious mistake and the symbol was a logo, not crosshairs.

Stone has pleaded not guilty to lying to Congress, obstruction and witness tampering related to discussions he had during the 2016 election about WikiLeaks.

There is no shetl near me, except for the one my wife wears. The Mueller report will be a great disappointment to you, as it.will.not find anything against the President.

A gag order many years ago would have spared this man a lot of trouble.

This is suppression of free speech. These so called judges are part of this whitchhunt and part of team KGB. And of course they found some out of place unintended twitter pic. This is nonsense. The truth is the judges and prosecutors are used to
intimatadting the people. Stone won't get intimated and will stand up and fight them. The trickster will outsmart them and show the public how foolish they are. So suppressing free speech is easier
