Stone Judge Wants Explanation About Coming Book

Bloomberg reports:

Roger Stone has more explaining to do. In a brief court order Friday, the judge overseeing Stone’s criminal case asked lawyers for the longtime adviser to President Donald Trump why she wasn’t told about the “imminent general release” of a book Stone appears to be involved with.

Just eight days ago, U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson reprimanded Stone for violating a gag order and threatened to jail him if he continued to talk to the media. Stone must explain by March 4 “why this matter — which was known to the defendant — was not brought to the court’s attention,” Jackson said in her order.
