REPORT: Roger Stone: Don’t gag me — I’m no Kim Kardashian
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by NYPost.com:
President Trump’s longtime pal Roger Stone on Friday asked a federal judge not to ban him from talking about his criminal case in the Russia probe — bizarrely arguing that he was a nobody compared to Kim Kardashian so his public blabbing posed no threat to the case.
He said people who closely follow politics might know his name, but he was “hardly ubiquitous in the larger landscape of popular consciousness.”
The article goes on to state the following:
Stone in court papers then contrasted his limited social media presence to that of Kardashian, the actress, entrepreneur and socialite.
“An example of how limited and narrow his public presence is, is that Kim Kardashian has 59.5 million followers on Twitter. By contrast, Roger Stone has no Twitter account at all and, thus has no Twitter followers,” Stone said.
“On Instagram, Kim Kardashian has 126 million followers. Roger Stone’s Instagram following amounts to 39 thousand subscribers.”
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.

Roger Stone is trying a new tactic in arguing against a federal judge who may restrict what he says in public: He’s claiming he’s not much of a celebrity.
Stone’s attorneys argue that while he’s known by some, he’s not nearly as famous as Kim Kardashian. https://t.co/EQVubembjD

Roger Stone’s lawyers say they’ll fight any gag order bc limiting his free speech would jeopardize his “livelihood.” Prospective jurors may not even know him, they say, since he has fewer Instagram followers than Kim Kardashian https://t.co/rjLf4DBDjw pic.twitter.com/DlLEuFws30
