A federal appeals court rejected Donald Trump’s requests to reconsider the partial gag order against him in the Washington, D.C. election subversion case.

The order limits public statements targeting prosecutors, defense lawyers, court staff, and potential witnesses.

Trump wrote, “They want to silence me because I will never let them silence you.”

Trump’s attorneys wrote, “This petition presents a question of exceptional importance: Whether a district court may gag the core political speech of the leading candidate for President of the United States—disregarding the First Amendment rights of over 100 million American voters—based on speculation about undefined possible future harms to the judicial process.”

Trump’s appeal to repeal the gag order was denied, and the court affirmed the restrictions, citing the need for fair trial procedures.

The panel ruled, “Mr. Trump is a former President and current candidate for the presidency, and there is a strong public interest in what he has to say.”

“But Mr. Trump is also an indicted criminal defendant, and he must stand trial in a courtroom under the same procedures that govern all other criminal defendants. That is what the rule of law means,” they continued.

Trump’s trial for federal felonies is scheduled to begin on March 4, a day before Super Tuesday.
