They also downplay his fame, citing as evidence that his Instagram following is only a fraction of celebrity Kim Kardashian West's.

He said people who closely follow American politics might know who he was, but he was "hardly ubiquitous in the larger landscape of popular consciousness".

Stone, who has given a number of interviews since his arrest denying all the allegations against him, fought back in a court filing. He faces charges of lying, obstruction and witness tampering, including by pressuring another witness to lie or refuse to talk to Congress.

In a separate filing on Friday, the Department of Justice said it would not oppose a narrow order restricting all parties and lawyers from speaking publicly, if it would be "substantially likely" to undermine Stone's right to a fair trial.

Those appearances caught the judge's attention last week when she encouraged Stone not to treat his case like a "book tour".

"Roger Stone has faith in the jury system and in the mechanics of jury selection which are created to ensure a fair trial".

"The footage depicts what you'd expect if the Federal Bureau of Investigation raided the home of a Mexican drug lord, maybe even SEAL Team 6 going into [Osama] bin Laden's compound", Carlson said.

They requested that his criminal matter be randomly reassigned to another judge, because they say it was unfairly lumped together with a case that special counsel Robert Mueller brought against 12 Russian military intelligence agents for allegedly hacking the Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton presidential campaign during the 2016 election.

The case is US v.

In a filing of its own later Friday, the special counsel's office suggested ordering Mr. Stone to "refrain from making further statements to the media or in public settings that are substantially likely to have a materially prejudicial effect on the case".

Prosecutors have tied that case to Stone's, saying they share a common search warrant and involve activities that are "part of the same alleged criminal event or transaction". He also attacked Jackson because she was appointed to the bench by President Barack Obama.

"I want to recognize and I think it's important that this defendant has a legitimate interest in exercising his First Amendment rights", she said at the hearing. He has said that he had no advance knowledge of what material WikiLeaks held and that predictions he made about the group's plans were based on Assange's public comments and tips from associates.
