Roger Stone Ordered to Court By Judge He Posted a Photo of With Crosshairs
The terms of Roger Stone‘s public release might be imperiled because of his controversial social media post about the judge overseeing his case.
Judge Amy Berman Jackson ordered Stone to appear in court this week for a hearing on why the terms of his bail shouldn’t be changed. Based on the judge’s order, this has to do with the picture Stone posted Monday on his Instagram that put Jackson’s face next to a set of crosshairs.

Jackson, who is presiding over Special Counsel Robert Mueller‘s case against Stone, could send the longtime Trump adviser to jail if she decides to revoke his $250,000 bond on Thursday.
Shortly after Stone posted the photo, he scrambled to delete it and initially replaced it with a similar post that omitted the crosshairs. That replacement post was later taken down as well, and Stone claimed it was never meant to be a threat to the judge. He would eventually submit an apologetic statement.
