Roger Stone Deletes Photo of Judge Amy Berman Jackson, Apologizes

Political operative Roger Stone posted an image of the federal judge handling his case with what appeared to be crosshairs Monday.

Jackson ruled Friday against a motion filed by Stone's attorneys to have her replaced as judge on the case. This kind of attitude was in place yesterday when Stone posted what appeared to be a threat on Instagram, directed at Judge Amy Berman Jackson. Stone claimed he did not realize that the crosshairs were in the graphic.

Roger Stone has been ordered to appear in court on Thursday following an Instagram post that criticized the judge in his case.

Stone was arrested in January and charged with five counts of lying, witness tampering and obstructing an official proceeding.

He also posted on Instagram: "A photo of Judge Jackson posted on my Instagram has been misinterpreted".

"In no way did I mean to threaten the judge or disrespect the court".

Stone was arrested last month as part of the Russian Federation investigation on charges of lying to investigators and witness tampering.

"Please inform the Court that the photograph and comment today was improper and should not have been posted", Stone wrote in a signed letter in the document.

Former Trump aide Roger Stone talks about the Federal Bureau of Investigation raid on his home and other details about his arrest on 'Tucker Carlson Tonight'.

"Mr Stone recognizes the impropriety and had it removed", the lawyers wrote.

The charges stem from conversations he had during the 2016 election about WikiLeaks, the anti-secrecy group that released material stolen from Democratic groups, including Hillary Clinton's campaign. As Politico noted, the order bars all parties involved from speaking about the case near the courthouse in Washington D.C.

"What some say are crosshairs are in fact the logo of the organization that originally posted it - something called corruption central", Stone told The Post. He has also criticized his case as involving only "process crimes".
