Roger Stone's trial date set for early November

Roger Stone

Stone has repeatedly tested the boundaries of the order since U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson silenced parties in this case last month, prompting her to warn the self-described "dirty trickster" of the "costs and consequences" of speaking publicly about the case, the court, or special counsel Robert Mueller. He was released on bail following his arrest seven weeks ago.

Departing court Thursday, an attorney for Stone, Robert Buschel, told ABC News, "When I'm walking out of court with my client, it's a good day", referring to the possibility Stone could be incarcerated pending trial if he's found in violation of the gag order. "So I want to be clear: Today I gave you a second chance". 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.

Jackson so far has slammed Stone's team for failing to tell her about the book sooner and suggested its belated court filing appeared created to drive book sales - which have been minimal, according to emails from the publisher. At other court appearances, prosecutors from the USA attorney's office had spoken on behalf of the government.

That order still stands, she told Stone at Thursday's hearing on the case, but he must follow it.

There was some speculation that Berman Jackson might toss Stone in jail for violating the terms of the gag order, but that's off the table for the time being. "Having been scolded, we seek only to defend Mr Stone and move ahead without further ado".

Emails from February between Stone's attorneys and his publisher revealed their concern that Jackson could decide to throw Stone behind bars for violating the gag order.

Jackson seemed to be rather lenient with Stone on this issue, insisting that she doesn't "intend to dwell" on a back and forth argument.

"There's no exception for awkward", she said. This comes after Mueller's team said they expect the trial to last 5-8 days.

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