Trump associate Roger Stone is struggling to abide a federal judge’s gag order regarding his case brought by special counsel Robert Mueller, according to CNBC.
Mueller reportedly notified Judge Amy Berman Jackson that Stone posted an image to his Instagram account picturing Stone with the words, “ Who framed Roger Stone.”
After previously posting an image to social media that depicted crosshairs next to Jackson’s head, Stone was barred from publicly commenting in any way on his case, the prosecutors, or anyone involved with the investigation.
CNBC noted that Jackson could have Stone jailed without bail pending his trial, should she determine that his Instagram post violated the gag order.
Mueller did not specifically request for the judge to find him in violation of the order.
"We note for the Court that according to public reporting, on March 3, 2019, the defendant's Instagram account shared an image with the title 'who framed Roger Stone.' A copy of the image is submitted under seal as Exhibit C. 1," Mueller said in the federal court filing.
Stone, who has since deleted the post, appears to be using social media to encourage his supporters to donate to his defense fund.
CNBC said other posts on his Instagram account included pleas such as "I am committed to proving my innocence. But I need your help," and, "I've always had Trump's back. Will you have mine?"
