Federal court upholds key aspects of Judge Chutkan’s gag order against Donald Trump

A federal appeals court has upheld key parts of a federal judge's gag order restricting Donald Trump's speech in connection with his ongoing prosecution by a special counsel on January 6 election interference charges.

In response, former President Donald Trump's legal team released the following statement:

“We believe that several aspects of Mr. Trump's public statements pose a serious and imminent threat to the fair and orderly adjudication of his ongoing criminal proceedings, and that a nondisclosure order restraining his speech is warranted. However, the district court's order is far-reaching; it speaks more protected speech than is necessary.As such, we affirm in part and reverse in part the district court's order. Specifically, this order is affirmed to the extent that all parties and their attorneys are prohibited from ordering or directing others to disclose known or reasonably foreseeable witnesses. , statements regarding the investigation or possible participation in this criminal proceeding,” the Trump campaign said.
