In his Tuesday night tirade, Trump had singled out Justice Amy Berman Jackson, who is to sentence Stone on February 20.

“Is this the Judge that put Paul Manafort in SOLITARY CONFINEMENT, something that not even mobster Al Capone had to endure? How did she treat Crooked Hillary Clinton? Just asking!” he tweeted.

Judge Jackson also presided in that case, and according a March 2019 CNN report she said that Manafort was initially held in a private room in a Virginia jail, and at the request of his lawyers was moved to a jail in Alexandria, Virginia.

There he was held not in solitary but in protective confinement, with access to a radio, newspapers and TV and released for a few hours a day “to walk around and be with other people.”
