Judge Sets Date for Roger Stone's Trial in the Mueller Case

16 March 2019

He has pleaded not guilty to the charges, which stem from conversations he had during the campaign about WikiLeaks, the anti-secrecy group that released material stolen from Democratic groups, including Hillary Clinton's campaign.

The federal judge overseeing Roger Stone's case in Washington, D.C., set a trial a date for November 5 for the former political adviser to President Donald Trump on Thursday, but decided not to address the issue of the political provocateur's latest possible violation of a court-imposed gag order.

US District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson had previously tightened a gag order limiting Mr Stone's public comments on the case after he posted a photo of her on his Instagram account next to an image resembling the crosshairs of a gun. At other court appearances, prosecutors from the US attorney's office had spoken on behalf of the government.

Rhee said the government has turned over about nine terabytes of documents and other evidence to the defence team.

Mr. Stone, a longtime adviser to President Trump, was arrested in a predawn raid at his Florida home in January. he has pleaded not guilty to obstruction, lying to Congress and witness tampering. She also said that the trial is expected to last two weeks.

Infront's Christian Mueller believes his company's offer can provide the financial security to grow the game globally. This would bring each nation an increase to its annual revenue of £100-130 million.

But just days later, a re-release of his book chronicling the 2016 presidential campaign caught the court's attention as it included a new introduction penned by Stone with fresh criticism of the special counsel's office.

Additional upcoming dates in the Stone case will include April 30, for a status hearing and September 17 for a pretrial conference.

On Thursday, Jackson noted that Stone's attorneys, according to their emails, were intending to get on top of the issue of the book release after she set the gag order. "I expect compliance", Jackson said.

After the Stone hearing, the special counsel's office confirmed Weissmann plans to leave the Justice Department "in the near future" - in yet another possible sign that the Mueller probe is winding down.
