A federal judge shouldn't bar longtime Donald Trump confidant Roger Stone from making public statements about his criminal case in the Russia investigation, his attorneys argued in court papers filed Friday.Stone's attorneys say that any limits on Stone's public comments would infringe on his First Amendment right to free speech.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". But they have not accused Stone of being directly involved in any Russian election conspiracy.Stone, who has pleaded not guilty, asks that the judge allow his case to be randomly assigned.Prosecutors have yet to respond to either of Stone's filings.
