  • Judge sets November trial for Trump adviser Stone

Back in January, longtime Trump aide Roger Stone was arrested at his house in Florida and charged with seven criminal counts.

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. But they denied using an erroneous March 1 filing notifying the court of the "imminent release" of the book - after the judge imposed the gag order on February 21 - to build publicity for the work, "The Myth of Russian Collusion", a retitled version of his earlier book about Trump's 2016 campaign, with a new introduction.

Roger Stone, an associate of President Donald Trump, leaves the U.S. District Court, after a court status conference on his seven charges: one count of obstruction of an official proceeding, five counts of false statements, and one count of witness tampering, in Washington, Thursday, March 14, 2019.

In court on Thursday, Berman Jackson, the same judge who sentenced Manafort this week, said she had not had time to fully review the latest developments and would not be addressing the gag order issue on Thursday, though she said she was not impressed with his lawyer's excuses.

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

The judge left that issue unresolved on Thursday at the brief hearing. She says she expects it to last about two weeks. "Having been scolded, we seek only to defend Mr Stone and move ahead without further ado".

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.

Stone has maintained his innocence and blasted the special counsel's investigation as politically motivated.
