He does not have the right to say and do exactly what he pleases,’ Judge issues gag order on Trump

Written by on October 16, 2023

US Republican presidential candidate,  Donald Trump has been issued a gag order by a Federal judge, limiting what he can say about special counsel Jack Smiths federal prosecution into his alleged attempt to subvert in the 2020 presidential election. The order issued Monday, October 16 restricts Trumps ability to publicly target court personnel, potential witnesses, or the special counsel and his staff. The order did not impose restrictions on disparaging comments about Washington, DC, where the jury will take place or certain comments about the Justice Department at large, both of which the government requested.Following the two federal indictments against the former president, Trump has lashed out against prosecutors, potential witnesses and the judge overseeing the election subversion case in Washington. Prosecutors with special counsel Jack Smiths office say these comments are enough to warrant a narrow restriction on Trumps speech around the case.This is not about whether I like the language Mr. Trump uses, Judge Tanya Chutkan said. This is about language that presents a danger to the administration of justice. His presidential candidacy does not give him carte blanche to vilify public servants who are simply doing their jobs, the judge added.Chutkan noted that any violation of her orders could result in sanctions.Trump will appeal Chutkans order, he said in a post on his social media website Truth Social.WILL APPEAL THE GAG ORDER RULING. WITCH HUNT! he wrote. Judge Chutkan, often the target of Trumps attacks, warned the former president that comments he or his attorneys make could threaten the case.Mr. Trump is a criminal defendant. He is facing four felony charges. He is under the supervision of the criminal justice system and he must follow his conditions of release, Chutkan said Monday during the hearing. He does not have the right to say and do exactly what he pleases. Do you agree with that? she asked Trump attorney John Lauro, who responded: 100%.In social media posts, Trump has attacked Chutkan as a biased, Trump Hating Judge and called Smith deranged and a thug as well as attacked individual members of his team.When you start to use a word like thug to describe a prosecutor doing their job, that wouldnt be allowed by any other criminal defendant, Chutkan said.  Just because the defendant is running a political campaign does not allow him to do whatever he wants.She added: If the message Mr. Trump wants to express is my prosecution is politically motivated, he can do so without using highly charged language. The post He does not have the right to say and do exactly what he pleases, Judge issues gag order on Trump appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
