Judge appears exasperated at Roger Stone arguments against Mueller

Source: CNN

Washington (CNN) The longtime political stuntman Roger Stone faced an exasperated judge on Thursday, as his lawyers failed to gain traction with bold legal arguments criticizing special counsel Robert Mueller before Stone's November criminal trial.

At the two-and-a-half-hour court hearing, Judge Amy Berman Jackson of the DC District Court didn't rule on requests Stone has made to puncture the case against him but got his legal team to admit flaws in almost all of their arguments.

Stone's team, however, still appears to have hope that they may get access to redacted parts of the Mueller report that describe Stone's case.

Jackson floated the possibility that Stone could potentially see some some parts of the Mueller report that would be "harmless" and repeat details his team is already learning through evidence they've received in the case. Prosecutors have fought against this, saying giving unredacted parts of the sought-after document to the defense team would reveal how they plan to try his case.

1. Access isn't what they want,

They want access denied so that they can claim an inability to fight a fair case

2. Long overdue for this little creep

to face justice. They are demanding the full, unredacted Mueller report. Why should they get it, when many in government have not seen it yet? Maybe these lawyers will quit when he stops paying them? I have received requests from Stone and his wife for donations. Fat chance I would give $$$ to them. He made his living being a scumbag, destroying democratic politicians. He was the main force behind the refusal for vote re-counts in Florida when Al Gore WON that election. The "Brooks Brothers" fiasco was all scumbag Roger's idea. Lock him up, throw away the key. Justice served.
