Some better reporting on the J6 coup protection order, cause American sources are...bad.

"Your client's defence is supposed to happen in this courtroom, not on the internet," Chutkan told Trump's lawyers.

The judge said that the more anyone makes "inflammatory" statements about the case, the greater her urgency will be to move the case more quickly to trial to prevent the contamination of the jury pool. She noted that "arguably ambiguous statements" could be construed as intimidation or harassment of potential witnesses.

"I will take whatever measures are necessary to safeguard the integrity of the case," she said.

Maybe need to go North for better, less confusing, less loaded and biased info.?

It is true the rantings of the defendant are ambiguous…but the more the defendant rants with a protection order hanging over his head, the more the judge will assume the bad interpretation…and consequences.

The Order is pointed and plain. CBSNBCABC see how it’s done?!

Michael Cohen: “Donald Trump speaks in code” I think the definition of arguably ambiguous statement is, classic mob boss talk.

everything else.

This is why Reagan killing the Fairness Doctrine in 1987 was so utterly disastrous. It allowed the profit motive to get in the way of the news, which like healthcare, dental care secondary and postsecondary education, prisons, policing, firefighting and public health should NEVER be polluted by the profit motive, because it is in direct conflict with the interests of the people.
