Why the Gag Order on Roger Stone?

Gag orders made by judicial coercion seem unAmerican. They seem like the kind of thing card-carrying Democrat Party members would work on people.

Why shouldn't those being persecuted by the state exercise free speech as they like without gag orders? The Soviet Communist Party used that sort of thing with arrest and export to the Alexander Archipelago. Censorship of political adversaries is perennially popular with Democrats lacking solid facts to win political points.

Attorneys usually advise their clients to say little to prosecutors. In the case of Roger Stone there might be an exception. It is disturbing to have ham-fisted goons ordering U.S. citizens to give up their free speech or be jailed.
