Courthouse News reports:
Roger Stone took a constitutional stand Friday against a potential gag order that will bar him from talking to the press about the charges leveled against him by Special Counsel Robert Mueller. “There should be no imposition of prior restraint on Mr. Stone’s First Amendment free speech rights,” the filing says.
Robert Buschel called the impact on a potential jury pool “entirely speculative” at this point, since a trial is likely “many months away.”
Putting his client in contrast to Kim Kardashian and her nearly 60 million Twitter followers, Buschel said Stone is relatively unknown outside of those who follow American politics closely, making it unlikely that the entire Washington, D.C., jury pool would be tainted should he speak publicly about the case.
