Roger Stone’s book may violate gag order

A federal judge on Tuesday said the publication of a book last month by former Trump adviser Roger Stone, criticizing Special Counsel Robert Mueller, may violate a media gag order... And it COULD land the self-proclaimed "dirty trickster" behind bars.

Stone is under indictment for lying to Congress about his dealings with Wikileaks, which published emails US officials say Russia stole from the Democrats during the 2016 presidential race.

Shortly after Stone was charged, Judge Amy Berman Jackson gave him wide latitude to discuss the case against him as long as it was not in the vicinity of the federal courthouse.

But that changed after Stone posted a photo of her on his Instagram account next to an image resembling the crosshairs of a gun.

She issued a more restrictive gag order on Feb 21st, warning Stone that he wouldn't get another chance.

After the gag order, Jackson learned that a 2017 book by Stone originally titled "The Making of the President 2016" had been re-published under the name "The Myth of Russian Collusion" that criticized Mueller and his Russia probe.

Jackson has now given Stone until Monday to explain his actions.

Stone's lawyers have said the book does not violate the gag order because it came out on Feb.

19, before the order was issued.
