Bad News For Trump’s Gag Order

via ABC 7 Chicago

A federal appeals court panel is likely to narrow the gag order against Donald Trump for his criminal trial in Washington, expressing concerns about its ambiguity and potential impact on his right to campaign in the 2024 presidential election.

The gag order prevents Trump from publicly discussing witnesses, prosecutors, and courthouse staff related to the case.

The judges have raised issues with the order, suggesting it may go too far and interfere with Trump’s right to respond to political attacks.

“He has to speak ‘Miss Manners’ while everyone else is throwing targets at him?” Judge Patricia Millett said.

“It would be really hard in a debate, when everyone else is going at you full bore,” she added.

“Your attorneys would have to have scripted little things you can say.”

“It’s not how I want my children to speak, but that’s really not the question.”

The specific details of how the appellate court intends to proceed are unknown, and if the order is not blocked, Trump would have the right to take the matter to the Supreme Court.
