"Kim Kardashian has 59.5 million followers on Twitter..."

Stone noted that Judge Berman Jackson said last week, "Right now, not-withstanding the fact that the defendant may be well known within certain circles, I believe that we will be able to seat an unbiased jury, that doesn't have an opinion about the allegations of this case". The case is against Roger Jason Stone Jr.

His speech shouldn't be restricted, because his lifeblood is writing and speaking about politics and fashion, his attorneys say. The statement cited recent television appearances in which Stone discussed "the merits of the charges, the nature of the evidence, the identity and credibility of trial witnesses, and the motives of the prosecution". Roger Stone was arrested on 25 January on federal charges put forward by Special Counsel Mueller, who is investigating the Trump campaign's alleged ties with Russian Federation.

Jackson so far hasn't had much face time in court with Stone or his legal team to reveal her approach to the case.

Prosecutors said the two share a common search warrant, and "there are activities which are a part of the same alleged criminal event or transaction", according to Stone's filing.

While they don't attack Jackson directly in their filings, Stone's attorneys took a second swing at her approach Friday.

In a separate filing, Stone's defense also asked that the case be reassigned from Jackson, a 2011 appointee of President Barack Obama who is also overseeing the criminal case of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

The show of force has prompted criticism of the tactics of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's office.

Jackson gave prosecutors until next Friday to reply to that request. United States intelligence officials claim the emails were stolen during Russian cyber-attacks on Clinton and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) servers. People familiar with the case identified "Organization 1" as WikiLeaks, the global anti-secrecy group founded by Julian Assange. He has said he only sought to encourage voter interest in the group's public disclosures. "It's called politics, and they haven't criminalized it, at least not yet", Stone said a week ago on ABC's "This Week".

Stone is free on bond and limited to travel between South Florida, Washington and New York City.
