Man, almost forgot about Roger Stone.

A federal judge on Friday demanded that Roger Stone explain why she should not find he violated a court gag order and his release terms pending trial after prosecutors criticized his recent social media posts attacking the FBI and Robert S. Mueller III’s special counsel probe.

U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson of Washington gave attorneys for the longtime Trump confidant until Thursday to explain Stone’s actions, after which she could set a hearing or weigh further restrictions on his liberty including jailing pending his November trial.

Jackson did not elaborate, but a one-sentence notice in the court’s electronic docket stated Stone “must show cause in writing” why he should not be found in violation.

Prosecutors led by Assistant U.S. Attorney Jonathan Kravis on Thursday filed a motion with the court requesting a hearing, arguing Stone’s posts breached an order that he not comment “in the media or in public settings about the Special Counsel’s investigation or this case or any of the participants in the investigation or the case.”

Postings in Stone’s Instagram this week included photos of commentators referring to the “Russia Hoax” and claiming Stone’s defense has exposed “the ‘intelligence community’s’ betrayal of their responsibilities” and revealed “deeply disturbing lessons about the level of corruption at the top levels of the agencies charged with protecting us from external threats.”

I do see how Stone explains this away, which means we might be about to see yet another Trump associate heading to jail. 

It kind of makes me wonder how many will still be walking around free when all is said and done?
