18 States File Brief Against Trump’s DC Gag Order

via The Telegraph

18 Republican state attorneys general have filed briefs supporting Donald Trump’s appeal against a gag order, arguing that it oversteps judicial boundaries and infringes on Trump’s free speech rights.

The individuals have claimed the order is overly broad, impermissibly vague, and unlawfully quiets Trump’s speech.

The states argued for the protection of Trump’s First Amendment rights, and expressed concerns regarding the potential impact on free and fair elections. (Trending: Photos Released Of Cocaine Found In White House)

“Beyond its overbreadth, the Order is impermissibly vague. By failing to articulate what it means to ‘target’ the individuals the Order identifies, the Court’s prior restraint will unlawfully chill President Trump’s speech,” the brief reads.

“As administrators of free and fair elections, we have an interest in ensuring no illegal prior restraint is entered against any major political candidate.”

“Indeed, our citizens have an interest in hearing from major political candidates in that election. The Order threatens the States’ interests by infringing on President Trump’s free speech rights.”

West Virginia’s attorney general said, “Proud to co-lead this effort with Iowa to ensure that President Trump’s First Amendment rights are protected.”

The ongoing legal battles against the gag orders have raised concerns about unprecedented judicial interference in the presidential election process.
