Freedom of Speech is Non-Negotiable!


Trump GAG Order Continued By Leftist D.C. Court of Appeals

The request by Trump to have the appeal of the gag order in the 2020 Election case reheard has actually been rejected by the Appeals Court.

The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals on Tuesday denied previous President Donald Trump’s request for the complete court to evaluate the appeal of his gag order, setting the stage for an appeal to the Supreme Court.

On December 18, Trump requested the full D.C. Circuit to evaluate his appeal against a gag order provided by District Judge Tanya Chutkan, who supervises of his election disturbance case in Washington, D.C. However, his demand was rejected in a short order on Tuesday.

In December, a group of three judges on the appeals court confirmed the gag order, making a couple of little adjustments. They got rid of the restriction preventing Trump from speaking about unique counsel Jack Smith but limited his ability to discuss witnesses to just consist of statements about their possible involvement in the examination or criminal case. Judge Patricia Millett, who was designated by Obama, discussed in her viewpoint on December 18 that Trump’s consistent pattern of speech and its immediate real-world effects pose a significant and immediate threat to the appropriate functioning of the criminal trial process in this case.

There is still the alternative for Trump to appeal the gag order imposed by Chutkan to the Supreme Court.

Chutkan initially enforced the gag order in October. As narrowed by the D.C. Circuit, the order avoids Trump from making public statements targeting “( 1) counsel in the event aside from the Special Counsel, (2) members of the court’s personnel and counsel’s staffs, or (3) the relative of any counsel or staff member– if those statements are made with the intent to materially hinder, or to trigger others to materially hinder, counsel’s or staff’s operate in this criminal case, or with the understanding that such disturbance is highly likely to result.”

The legal proceedings relating to Trump’s 2020 election conflict are briefly suspended, based on an order by Judge Chutkan, until the appeal of his demand to dismiss the case due to presidential resistance is dealt with. Earlier, on December 1st, Chutkan rejected Trump’s argument of governmental resistance as a basis for dismissing the case.

The President did not quickly react to a question seeking his thoughts.
