COURTS/ROBERT MUELLER/ROGER STONE/TRUMP PEOPLE: “Lawyers for Roger Stone, a former political adviser to President Donald Trump, on Thursday [6-27-19] denied accusations by prosecutors that he violated a court-imposed gag order by posting comments on social media about former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. In a filing with the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, Stone’s lawyers said he was exercising his First Amendment rights within the confines of the gag order…Last week, prosecutors accused Stone of trying to ‘fan the flames’ and poison the jury pool ahead of his November trial. They asked Judge Amy Berman Jackson to hold a hearing to consider changing his conditions of release, which could potentially land him behind bars.”
