Several times, Stone had shared on Instagram right-wing publications' stories about his case, including ones that highlighted conspiracy theories that disagree with United States intelligence community findings, and had commented on Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff and former CIA Director John Brennan.
A federal judge Tuesday is considering whether to punish Roger Stone for social media posts and whether they are in violation of a strict gag order she imposed on him.
U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson told Stone on Tuesday that he could not use Instagram or other social media platforms while the case against him moves forward.
"You've shown me that you're unwilling to stop talking about the investigation, which means that you're unwilling to conform your conduct to the orders of the court", the judge said.
"Stone's posts appear calculated to generate media coverage of information that is not relevant to this case but that could prejudice potential jurors", they wrote, in reference to posts Stone made citing articles that questioned whether Russian Federation actually hacked Democratic Party computer servers in the 2016 presidential election.
During the hearing, Jackson spent about an hour painstakingly reading each one of his posts aloud and asking Stone's attorney Bruce Rogow if they violated her gag order, before taking an hour recess to weigh how she would rule.
