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.

"An example of how limited and narrow his public presence is, is that Kim Kardashian has 59.5 million followers on Twitter", Stone's court filing said. They also downplay his fame, citing as evidence that his Instagram following is only a fraction of celebrity Kim Kardashian West's. The lobbyist pleaded not guilty and vowed to "tell the truth" throughout the process. But Stone's attorneys say such an order would infringe on Stone's First Amendment right to free speech.

Having addressed Twitter, Stone then moved on to Instagram.

Stone accuses the prosecutors of "shopping for a preferred district judge".

It is unclear when the judge will rule. Stone faces no charges in connection with the hack - though he was mentioned anonymously in their indictment as communicating with the Russians.

In filing later Friday, prosecutors said they wouldn't oppose Jackson issuing a "narrowly-tailored" gag order that seeks to keep Stone from using media coverage to his advantage in the court case. The case is against Roger Jason Stone Jr.
