Roger Stone posts 'Wanted for Treason' image of ex-CIA boss John Brennan on Instagram, condemns Trump-Russia probe

Roger Stone, former adviser to U.S. President Donald Trump, leaves the E. Barrett Prettyman United States Court House May 30, 2019 in Washington, DC. Lawyers asked a judge to dismiss the charges of obstruction, lying and witness tampering against Stone that stem from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Roger Stone, a longtime associate of President Donald Trump’s, posted a “Wanted for Treason” image featuring photos of Trump critic and former CIA chief John Brennan on his social media accounts.

Stone, who has called himself a political dirty trickster, also blasted the catalyst for the counterintelligence inquiry that led to special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential campaign, and ultimately to Stone’s own current prosecution for multiple alleged crimes.

The post made last week on Stone’s Facebook and Instagram accounts comes less than four months after the federal judge in his criminal case imposed a gag order on Stone, restricting his ability to comment publicly about his case and related issues.

According to a Newsweek story published Sunday, Stone, in a separate Instagram video story, featured a photo of Brennan with the words: “This psycho must be charged, tried, convicted … and hung for treason.”

The video story since has been removed.

Sam Vinograd, CNN’s national security analyst and a member the National Security Council during the administration of President Barack Obama, Sunday on Twitter reported that story to Instagram, which responded to her by saying the post had been taken down “because it violated our Community Guidelines.”

The gag order on longtime Republican operative Stone came after he posted earlier this year, also on Instagram, a photo of his case’s judge, Amy Berman Jackson, next to the crosshairs of a rifle scope.

Nike’s ‘inclusive’ image at risk if it fails women athletes, brand experts say

Meanwhile, Kelly Williams, managing director of consultancy Sports Revolution, believes that because most athletes are self-employed, paid maternity leave is not warranted. … (Women) don’t want to be different, just treated the same (and) we should not notice the difference between athletes,” she said in an email to CNBC.

Nike's 'inclusive' image at risk if it fails women athletes, brand experts say

When Olympic athlete Alysia Montano took part in a race only one month away from having a baby, she became known as “the pregnant runner.” It was 2014 and she went on to win a national championship when her daughter was six months old, and another when she was 10 months old. But in an opinion piece and video published by the New York Times on Sunday, Montano said when she told one of her former sponsors, Nike, that she wanted to have a baby during her career, the sports giant told her it would pause her contract and stop paying her. This, she said, is at odds with commercials such as “Dream Crazier,” released by Nike in February, where Nike-sponsored tennis player Serena Williams is praised for “having a baby and then coming back for more,” and in which viewers are told: “Show them what crazy can do.”

Nike has admitted that “a few” female athletes did previously have “performance-based reductions” in their fees, but last year it standardized its approach across all sports “so that no female athlete is penalized financially for pregnancy,” according to a statement emailed to CNBC. It said it is common industry practice for agreements to include performance-based payment reductions, but did not confirm to the Times if its change in approach is a contractual guarantee. Montano’s article has prompted much debate. Women’s rights campaigning organization Time’s Up tweeted that Nike “should be supporting safe and healthy pregnancies — not pushing people out or slashing benefits.” Running coach Mario Fraioli called the lack of maternity benefits for women athletes “one of athletics’ dirtiest secrets,” in a tweet. Meanwhile, Kelly Williams, managing director of consultancy Sports Revolution, believes that because most athletes are self-employed, paid maternity leave is not warranted. “I think there is more of a debate about keeping a ranking than getting paid. I think the movement in women’s sport and focus on equality is absolutely great. But would we give a male athlete maternity leave? … (Women) don’t want to be different, just treated the same (and) we should not notice the difference between athletes,” she said in an email to CNBC. “I own my own business and if I don’t work, I don’t get paid. I have to budget for babies and I have had three,” she added.

Taking a stand

The controversy also raises the question of whether brands should take a stand on social issues, as Nike has done in its advertising, or have their executives publicize opinions. “Consumers increasingly expect brands to have a voice in political and social conversations, and gender equality is among the top issues Americans want to see companies support,” according to Jeremy Robinson-Leon, president of New York based PR firm Group Gordon, in an email to CNBC. “However, the public won’t stand for lip service. When a company’s words and actions don’t add up, its reputation will inevitably take a hit.”

Nike is not afraid of controversy: Shares in the company fell in September 2018 after it released an ad starring activist Colin Kaepernick. For Simeon Siegel, an analyst at Nomura Instinet, its willingness to make a stand has not dented long-term sales. “Nike has a long history of … controversy for good and bad … and that long history sits side by side with a long history of becoming the largest … apparel (and) footwear brand in the history of time,” he told CNBC by phone.

Ads vs reality

For Robinson-Leon, any company that pushes gender equality in its advertising but behaves differently in private risks its reputation. “Clearly, a brand like Nike that bills itself as a leader on social issues hurts its credibility by saying one thing publicly and doing another backstage. It’s illogical for the business and a disservice to the intended social impact. And, more broadly, it gives rise to an understandable cynicism on the part of the public that undermines the positive efforts of other responsible businesses,” Robinson-Leon said in an email to CNBC. Other companies have been tripped up by how their public behavior contrasts with their advertising — United Airlines’ “Fly the friendly skies” was mocked on social media after a man was forcibly removed from a flight in 2017. But almost a year later, parent company United Continental Holdings posted its fifth consecutive year of profits.

Nike and women

“Dream Crazier,” from February, and “Dream with Us,” released on Mother’s Day to promote Nike’s sponsorship of teams playing in the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup, are part of the company’s strategy to grow its U.S. business by focusing on women. The debate over maternity pay is not likely to dent sales to women, according to Siegel. “The reality is Nike(‘s)… marketing and their messaging is also inclusive … I believe that as long as they are not putting their head in the sand we are unlikely to see a sales miss,” he told CNBC by phone.

Siegel added that Nike has been fast to deal with problems as it became aware of them. A year ago, the company saw an exodus of executives amid accusations of harassment and discrimination, and an apology from CEO Mark Parker who said the company would change its culture. “Nike, generally speaking, over the past year has actually sought to get ahead of issues presumably as they became aware of them,” Siegel said. “Rather than being called into question and then fixing the business, Nike during the worst of it aired their own dirty laundry. It’s always fair to challenge why there was dirty laundry in the first place, but on a relative scale the fact that the company has moved fast to at least try to make change and correct is worthy of note,” he told CNBC by phone. “From an investing perspective right now, the company continues to grow healthfully which means from a consumer perspective people are still buying their products en masse.”

These $600 smart glasses backed by Amazon and Intel are the best yet — but they still don’t do enough

Canadian company North recently released a $600 pair of smart glasses called Focals. The company, previously known as Thalmic Labs, raised money from backers including Amazon’s Alexa Fund and Intel Capital in 2017. The basic idea is that they’re glasses with a tiny projector in one of their arms. Apple is also reportedly working on glasses that could ship as soon as next year. But so far, Focals stand out because North focused on making smart glasses that are useful, but also look good.

These $600 smart glasses backed by Amazon and Intel are the best yet — but they still don't do enough

Canadian company North recently released a $600 pair of smart glasses called Focals. The company, previously known as Thalmic Labs, raised money from backers including Amazon’s Alexa Fund and Intel Capital in 2017.

The basic idea is that they’re glasses with a tiny projector in one of their arms. The projector beams an image onto a circular film on the right lens, which bounces it back into your eyeball. As a result, even though there’s technically no screen, you see an image. Focals can show you simple alerts like incoming messages, the time and weather, but they have limited capabilities beyond that. You control the glasses with a small joystick on a plastic ring worn on your finger.

A lot of other companies are pursuing similar ideas, including Microsoft with HoloLens, and start-up Magic Leap. Apple is also reportedly working on glasses that could ship as soon as next year. But so far, Focals stand out because North focused on making smart glasses that are useful, but also look good.

CNBC’s Adam Isaak tried them out. Watch the video to learn more.

Amazon is trying to soften its image as regulatory scrutiny of Big Tech grows

But rather than fiercely fighting every battle, Amazon looks like its ready to play nice. In March, Amazon dropped a policy that prevented merchants from offering lower prices on other websites following an investigation request by Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.). Last month, the company scaled back some of its most aggressive promotion tactics after Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) And late last year Amazon raised its minimum wage to $15 following criticism of the company’s working conditions

Amazon is trying to soften its image as regulatory scrutiny of Big Tech grows

Amazon’s relentless pursuit of growth in retail, cloud computing, advertising and consumer devices has put the company squarely in the sights of Washington lawmakers who are concerned about Big Tech’s growing influence over consumers. But rather than fiercely fighting every battle, Amazon looks like its ready to play nice.

In March, Amazon dropped a policy that prevented merchants from offering lower prices on other websites following an investigation request by Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.). Last month, the company scaled back some of its most aggressive promotion tactics after Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) called out abusive business practices. And late last year Amazon raised its minimum wage to $15 following criticism of the company’s working conditions by Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT).

Amazon also confirmed to CNBC that it would soon start accepting cash at the Amazon Go cashierless stores as a growing number of cities and states push for laws that require all stores to serve the unbanked. It’s all part of a strategy to be more likable at a time when tech companies are drawing heat for behavior that looks increasingly anti-competitive.

“I believe Amazon has made the connection between likability and immunity from regulation,” said NYU business professor Scott Galloway, author of “The Four: The Hidden DNA of Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google.”

This is a different company from the vigorously defensive, win-at-all-cost Amazon we’re used to seeing.

Here are the top foreign languages that UK employers want you to have

Indeed analyzed the requirements in millions of job advertisements posted on its website, which is searched by more than 250 million people per month.

Demand for German speakers peaked just before the Brexit referendum in June 2016, according to the data.

The total number of job roles specifying language skills as a prerequisite increased by almost 3% in the same period.

However, Indeed noted that Brexit’s impact on migration could potentially lead to a “language gap” in the British employment market. According to the U.K.’s Office for National Statistics, net migration from the EU is now at its lowest level in a decade, which could signal a reduction in the talent pool when it comes to European language skills.

“Many U.K. employers who require multilingual staff are becoming increasingly unsettled as a perfect storm brews — fewer and fewer linguists are emerging from our education system just as Brexit uncertainty looks to be deterring workers relocating here from the EU,” Bill Richards, U.K. managing director of Indeed, said in a press release.

“English is a global language, but that cannot always offset the need for fluent speakers of other languages. While the U.K. market clearly continues to offer many opportunities for those with additional language skills, there is a danger of a shortfall emerging as insufficient supply butts up against rising demand,” he added.

Black conservative group calls on NAACP to rescind Jussie Smollett's Image Award nomination

A black conservative group is calling on the NAACP to drop Jussie Smollett from the list of nominees for an Image Award after the actor was arrested on the suspicion of filing a false police report claiming he was the victim of a hate crime.

Project 21, an activist group sponsored by the National Center for Public Policy Research, said Smollett “does not deserve honor after arrest for hate crimes hoax.”

“Everyone has a reason to be disappointed with Jussie Smollett right now, and these accumulated reasons justify the NAACP taking swift and appropriate action to remove him from consideration for its Image Award,” Council Nedd, co-chairman of Project 21, said in a statement Monday.

Smollett was nominated for outstanding supporting actor in a drama series for his work on “Empire.” The Image Awards is an event that celebrates the achievements and performances of people of color as well as individuals or groups who promote social justice through creative endeavors.

The Image Award nomination came before Smollett was charged with 16 counts of disorderly misconduct for allegedly lying to the Chicago police.

Representatives for Smollett and the NAACP’s Image Awards did not immediately respond to CNBC’s request for comment.

This isn’t the first time that Project 21 has contested the Image Award’s nominees. In 2004, the group criticized the NAACP for allowing R&B singer R. Kelly to keep his nomination for outstanding album despite the fact that he was under indictment for alleged child pornography violations.

Judge slams Roger Stone over book that criticizes Robert Mueller

Jackson only recently had learned that the self-described “dirty trickster” Stone was on the verge of publishing the book, “The Myth of Russian Collusion,” which takes shots at Mueller.

Stone’s online presence appears to have been recently scrubbed of many of his prior attacks on the special counsel. Two websites used by Stone — whoframedrogerstone.com and stonezone.com — have been deleted in recent days. Both sites solicited money for Stone’s legal defense fund, and both took shots at Mueller.

The special counsel is probing Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and possible collusion by the Trump campaign with that meddling.

The judge’s awareness of the book came only after her Feb. 21 order prohibiting Stone from making any comments that criticize Mueller or the case against him. Jackson’s gagging of Stone came after he posted an image on Instagram showing her face next to the crosshair of a rifle’s scope.

Jackson noted last week that Stone’s lawyers had not told her about the forthcoming book when she held the hearing Feb. 21 on the gag order.

In the book, Stone writes: “I now find myself on Crooked Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller’s hit list because I have advised Donald Trump for the past forty years. I am being targeted not because I committed a crime, but because the Deep State liberals want to silence me and pressure me to testify against my good friend.”

In her new order Tuesday, Jackson demanded that Stone’s lawyers by next Monday file a status report in federal court in Washington, D.C., “detailing his efforts to come into compliance with the Court’s rulings.”

She also wants Stone’s lawyer to produce records related to his book deal and its schedule for release, the exact date the book first became available, when he learned the book had been printed, and other details about the book.

Neither Stone’s lawyers nor a special counsel spokesman immediately responded to CNBC’s request for comment.

Jackson seemed to suggest that Stone might have to withdraw the book from publication when she warned Stone that “any costs or consequences that will be occasioned by [the judge’s] clear reiteration of this clear requirement” to comply with the gag order “are … solely attributable to the defendant.”

The judge noted that Stone “deliberately waited until public sales [of the book] were not only ‘imminent,’ but apparently, ongoing, to inform the Court of the publication effort that had been underway for weeks.”

Jackson’s order came a day after Mueller informed her that Stone had posted on Instagram an image of his face under the words “Who framed Roger Stone.” The special counsel’s filing cited a CNBC story on that Instagram post which raised the question of whether the image violated the gag order on Stone barring him from criticizing the prosecution’s case.

Mueller took no position on whether Stone’s post had violated the gag order. Stone deleted the image shortly after CNBC asked his lawyer about it.

On Tuesday, Jackson wrote, “The fact that the order exists at all is entirely the fault of the defendant.”

“He used his public platform in an incendiary and threatening manner,” she wrote, referring to the image of the crosshair next to her face.

Robert Mueller notifies judge that Roger Stone shared Instagram image

Special counsel Robert Mueller on Monday notified a federal judge about an Instagram post by President Donald Trump’s friend Roger Stone that could be in violation of the judge’s strict gag order on Stone.

The filing by Mueller cited CNBC’s story on Sunday detailing the post by Stone, which contained an image of him under the words “Who framed Roger Stone.”

Mueller did not ask Judge Amy Berman to find the self-described “dirty trickster” Stone in violation of her gag order in the case.

Stone, 66, is barred from criticizing Mueller’s team of prosecutors under the gag imposed on Feb. 21 after the longtime Republican operative posted an Instagram image of Jackson’s face next to a rifle scope’s crosshair.

If Stone, who is currently free on a $250,000 signature bond, is found by Jackson to have violated that order, she could have him jailed without bail pending his trial on charges of lying to Congress, witness tampering and obstructing justice.

Stone deleted the “Who framed Roger Stone” image from a series of other rotating images on his Instagram story Sunday shortly after CNBC sent an email to his lawyer asking about it.

The other images suggested that people donate to Stone’s legal defense fund, with one saying “I am committed to proving my innocence. But I need your help,” and another saying, “I’ve always had Trump’s back. Will you have mine?”

“We note for the Court that according to public reporting, on March 3, 2019, the defendant’s Instagram account shared an image with the title ‘who framed Roger Stone.’ A copy of the image is submitted under seal as Exhibit C. 1,” Mueller said in the court filing in federal court in Washington, D.C.

CNBC’s story on the image is referenced in a footnote in that filing.

Stone’s posted the “Framed” Instagram image two days after Jackson ordered his defense lawyers to explain why they did not tell her about the planned publication of a book by Stone that could violate her gag order. The book is entitled “The Myth of Russian Collusion: The Inside Story of How Trump Really Won.”

Jackson’s gag order prohibits Stone from “making statements to the media or in public settings about the Special Counsel’s investigation or this case or any of the participants in the investigation or the case.”

The gag covers “posts on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or any other form of social media,” as well as other forms of communication.

Mueller’s spokesman, who declined to comment on Stone’s post on Sunday, did not immediately return a request for comment. Stone’s lawyers did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Earlier Monday, Stone’s attorneys told Jackson in a filing that they belived his new book, which has an updated introduction discussing his case, should be allowed to be published because it was written and edited before the judge issued her gag order.

But Mueller’s filing afterward noted that, “A preview of the defendant’s book, including the updated Introduction referenced in the defendant’s Motion to Clarify, is currently publicly available on Amazon.com and Google Books.”

Stone was arrested in January. He has pleaded not guilty in the case.

Mueller claims Congress about his alleged effort to get the document collection group WikiLeaks to release emails hacked by Russian agents from Democrats, including Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Stone is alleged to have been in contact with top-ranking Trump campaign officials about efforts to leak damaging information about Clinton.

New York’s image is ‘a bit tarnished’ after Amazon exit, says business group CEO

” Employers here pay 20, 30 percent premium for employees in New York because of the cost of living, and then there’s the taxes.” Jonathan Westin, executive director of New York Communities for Change, applauded Amazon’s exit. “We’ll now be able to reset what the climate should be for businesses in New York,” he told “Closing Bell.” “If you want to come to New York, you actually have to deal with regular people. “We are going to figure out how to work together to make up for it and to keep our t

New York's image is 'a bit tarnished' after Amazon exit, says business group CEO

Wylde said the government had to put something on the table to lure Amazon.

“New York is the highest-taxed place in the country, and when we are competing with every other state and city, in places like Nashville and Dallas — runners-up to our application — it’s pretty hard to compare our tax burden and cost burden there,” she said on “Closing Bell.” ” Employers here pay 20, 30 percent premium for employees in New York because of the cost of living, and then there’s the taxes.”

Jonathan Westin, executive director of New York Communities for Change, applauded Amazon’s exit. “We shouldn’t be subsidizing companies to provide jobs.”

He called Amazon’s decision a “huge victory” for New Yorkers.

“We’ll now be able to reset what the climate should be for businesses in New York,” he told “Closing Bell.” “If you want to come to New York, you actually have to deal with regular people. You actually have to make sure that people are included in the conversation and not displace working-class communities that have been here forever.”

Wylde said while the expected tax revenue is a “big loss” for the city, she is optimistic that New York can move forward.

“We are going to figure out how to work together to make up for it and to keep our tech economy growing. It is our fastest-growing industry, and we need it,” she said.
