While she did not make a decision on the matter, she did say that she is still considering the gag order.

Donald Trump confidant Roger Stone is due back in court Friday in the special counsel's Russian Federation investigation as prosecutors say they have recovered "voluminous and complex" potential evidence in the case, including financial records, emails and computer hard drives.

The judge imposed a gag order in that case after a lawyer for Manafort addressed reporters after his first court appearance.

Stone's indictment on charges of obstruction, witness tampering, and lying to Congress contained an intriguing passage regarding a "senior" Trump official who was directed to contact him about getting in touch with WikiLeaks in the final months of the 2016 campaign.

Stone can "discuss foreign relations, immigration or Tom Brady as much as he wants to", the judge said, referring to the star New England Patriots quarterback. The judge asked both sides to file briefs by February 8 on the possible gag order.

In a court filing, they asked Judge Amy Berman Jackson to designate the case as "complex", which would lengthen the time for trial preparation.

Stone, who once worked for former President Nixon and has a tattoo of him on his back, flashed the Nixon V-sign in front of cameras before he spoke.

The indictment accused Stone of telling unidentified members of Trump's 2016 campaign team he had advance knowledge of plans by the WikiLeaks website to release damaging emails - stolen by Russian Federation, according to prosecutors - about Trump's Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton. "Perjury requires both intent and materiality", Stone said, calling any failure to disclose emails or text messages an "honest mistake".

Stone made the rounds on television last weekend and held a news conference Thursday at a Washington hotel, where he said he was prepared to tell the truth to Mueller but he had no derogatory information about Trump, his longtime friend.

The Stone's indictment refers to two people with whom he is accused of communicating in an effort to get more information about Wikileaks' plans for future releases of hacked Democratic emails.

Stone and WikiLeaks and Assange have said they never communicated with each other. He said there is no evidence or accusation that he knew in advance about the source or content of the WikiLeaks material. Jerome Corsi, a right-wing political commentator and conspiracy theorist, previously confirmed to Reuters he is "Person 1" referenced in the indictment.
