Federal Appeals Upholds Judge Chutkan Gag Order in January 6 Case Against Trump

The DC Circuit Court of Appeals largely upheld but narrowed Judge Tanya Chutkan’s gag order against President Trump in the alleged election interference case of Jack Smith on Friday.

“We agree with the district court that some aspects of Mr. Trump’s public statements pose a significant and imminent threat to the fair and orderly adjudication of the ongoing criminal proceeding, warranting a speech-constraining protective order,” the DC appeals court ruled, according to NBC News. “The district court’s order, however, sweeps in more protected speech than is necessary. For that reason, we affirm the district court’s order in part and vacate it in part.”

Trump’s attorneys have been challenging the gag order imposed by Judge Chutkan since its issuance last month. The injunction barred Trump from disparaging Jack Smith or his prosecutors, any personnel of the court, or related witnesses.

However, the appellate court upheld most of the provisions except for that which prohibited criticism of Smith. The ruling clarified that Trump does not possess an unrestricted right to speak in public.

“The record shows that Mr. Trump has repeatedly attacked those involved in this case through threatening public statements, as well as messaging daggered at likely witnesses and their testimony,” the ruling said, according to NBC News. “The unique megaphone a defendant wields, amplified by social media, ramps up the risk of public and press reactions and attention capable of altering or swaying witnesses’ participation in the trial or the content of their testimony. The risk is particularly significant that public statements about certain witnesses’ involvement in the case may intimidate other potential witnesses from providing testimony, encourage them to alter their testimony, or dissuade them from cooperating with investigators.”

Judge Patricia Millett, an Obama appointee wrote: “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.”

Excerpt from NBC News:

A federal appeals court in Washington, D.C., on Friday upheld but narrowed the gag order that had been imposed on former President Donald Trump in his election interference case prohibiting him from making critical comments about potential witnesses and prosecutors.

The new version of the gag order bars Trump and his lawyers from making “public statements about known or reasonably foreseeable witnesses concerning their potential participation in the investigation or in this criminal proceeding.”

It also upheld the section of the order prohibiting Trump and his lawyers from making public statements about lawyers in the case, court staff, special counsel staff or their family members. The one exception is special counsel Jack Smith. The appeals court found the order “should not have restricted speech about the Special Counsel himself.”

Trump responded:

“An Appeals Court has just largely upheld the Gag Order against me in the ridiculous J6 Case, where the Unselect January 6th Committee deleted and destroyed almost all Documents and Evidence, saying that I can be barred from talking and, in effect, telling the truth. In other words, people can speak violently and viciously against me, or attack me in any form, but I am not allowed to respond, in kind. What is becoming of our First Amendment, what is becoming of our Country? We will appeal this decision!” Trump said on Truth Social.

  1. I make over thirty k a month working part-time. I kept hearing from other people telling me how much money they could make online, so I decided to find out. Well, it was all true and it completely changed my life.

    This Is Where I Started………. W­w­w.M­o­n­e­y­P­a­y­1.c­o­m

  2. Pete says:

    I actually believe this gag order HELPS Trump? So often his mouth is what gets him in trouble.

    • BrotherEarl says:

      Trump never spoke specifically about the case or so called evidence. He was speaking about the corruption in the DC justice system. Trump doesnt need to be silenced because he has only openly exposed how the democrats are committing election interference and fraud.

  3. Carolinadog says:

    Just another confirmation of the majority view that every federal agency within the confines of the District of Columbia is rife with corruption. The whole place should be fenced off and declared a toxic waste dump.

  4. Don says:

    The DC appeals court is just as corrupt as Chutkan.

  5. Lawrence M says:

    Carolinadog and Don; ABSOLUTELY CORRECT! I said in another article which applies here concisely; the fact of the matter is plain for all to see! The criminality from the top down is rampant and out of control! We have justices and so called politicians who are in the back pockets of some of the most evil criminals to have ever existed on planet earth, exponentially worse than what was going on during the Roaring Twenties during the 20th Century with the Mob! All of that Elliot Ness taking down the Bootleggers and Racketeers was a cake walk compared to this filthy evil slime that has infested our US Government! I think we are near the END, because if not there would have to be a reinstatement of the Gallows by now! Where is the JUSTICE?

  6. Lawrence M says:

    If all of this isn’t election interference and a dictatorship in progress then I must be hallucinating and I’m Roger Rabbit!

  7. Dexter Wilson says:

    President Trump is going to have a lot of fun disbarring quite of few of these judges who do not follow the Constitution.

  8. Dexter Wilson says:

    President Trump is going to have a lot of fun disbarring quite of few of these judges who do not follow the Constitution and when did I say this before and even so, can’t hurt to repeat it because when do people go back to these comments to look at them again.

    You know people could care less about your prostitution business. It would be nice if you kept your porno business to yourself.

  10. Richard says:

    I really find the courts in Arizona, Colorado, and throughout the US how corrupt they are. These judges are not blind as they like to use the symbol, but are democrats wearing a judge’s robe. We have not seen this type of Corruption, in my 80 years. It’s amazing since Obama, this country has been separated between the sexes, the color, ideology of communism vs patriotism. Obama was hell-bent on destroying this country with his puppet master Soros and he is doing a great job working the masses’. With the fraudulent election in 2020 by Obama’s people and the help of the globalists (communists) they have been working feverishly to kill the masses, and destroy the remaining masses..

  11. Lawrence M says:

    Dexter Wilson; Amen and Amen.

  12. Lawrence M says:

    Richard; you are quite right! And I have studied the situation enough to realize that Obama is serving Satan and demonic forces have been unleashed like never before in America, thus all of this madness, mayhem and flat-out criminality! America looks like an abomination now (Obamanation)!

  13. Excellent work, Mike. I greatly commend your effort because I currently generate more than $38,000 each month from just one simple web business! Even with just $29,000, you may start developing a reliable online income and these are just the most basic internet operations occupations.

  14. Lawrence M says:

    Brother Earl; I unequivocally agree with what you have pointed out here! And I say even for the uninitiated it is quite easy to see the wanton corruption on all levels in the DC Swamp! They used to call it “playing the game” in politics, but now, the whole of it is just a “huge game;” the “tentacles of diabolical corruption” have taken hold of our Nation’s Heart to destroy it! Too many have kicked the can down the road too long, and many more now join into the feeding frenzy; the money laundering alone is an abomination! If all of this were happening a few or more generations back; the gallows would be operating daily! They would have put it all out of commission long before it got this far!

  15. Lawrence M says:

    It’s becoming more apparent that those in positions of authority are all bought and paid for! There isn’t enough will and outright determination to fix this decrepit falling apart nation; most likely it’s all too little too late!
