Court reinstates Trump gag order in election subversion case

  • Trump restraining order reinstated.
  • Controversial reactions and charges.
  • Ongoing legal battles.

In his subversion case for the 2020 presidential election, former President Donald Trump has had a limited restraining order reinstated by a federal judge.

It restricts his ability to criticize court personnel, prosecutors, or potential witnesses in the time leading up to his trial.

Controversial Reaction

On Sunday, Judge Tanya Chutkan reinstated the order that she had provisionally suspended earlier this month to allow his attorneys to file an appeal.

The judge was labeled “Trump-hating” by Mr. Trump an hour after the news broke.

He wrote in a post on his Truth Social media account that the restraining order “will disadvantage me in the eyes of my political and prosecutorial adversaries.”

Charges and Not-Guilty Plea

Earlier this year, charges were filed against the Republican frontrunner for president in 2024 on suspicion that he attempted to revoke his 2020 election loss to Democrat Joe Biden.

This indictment alleges conspiracy to defraud the US, obstruction of justice, and citizen rights violations.

“Invest in your future with Webull UK – get started with free shares.”

On all counts, he has entered a not-guilty plea; his trial is scheduled for March.

Special Counsel’s Concerns

The investigation is being led by special counsel Jack Smith, who initially requested a restraining order against Mr. Trump on the grounds that his candid remarks could “prejudice” trial participants, such as jurors and court personnel.

The former president called Mr. Smith a “deranged lunatic” and “thug” among other insults.

Immediate information regarding the reason why Judge Chutkan reinstated the order was non-existent.

Ongoing Legal Battles

His attorneys had contended that the prohibition order infringed upon his freedom of expression.

Mr. Trump’s legal team also asked Judge Chutkan to recuse herself, alleging that her earlier comments implied prejudice against him.

In September, she refused to quit because Mr. Trump’s attorneys had failed to submit proof.

A ban order also applies to the former president in a separate ongoing civil fraud trial in New York.

The judge in that case fined Mr. Trump $5,000 (£4,100) and $10,000 for violating the order.
