Trump to test the limits of the First Amendment at high-stakes hearing over gag order constitutionality
CNN Former President Donald Trump will test the limits of his free speech rights Monday when he argues to a Washington, DC, appeals court that a gag order placed on him in his federal election subversion criminal case is not constitutionally sound.
The high-stakes hearing before the US DC Circuit Court of Appeals will represent Trumps latest bid to undo the gag order issued by a federal judge last month, an effort he says is necessary to defend himself outside the courtroom as he campaigns for a second term in the White House.
The gag order from District Judge Tanya Chutkan restricts Trumps ability to publicly target court personnel, potential witnesses, special counsel Jack Smith and his staff. Prosecutors argue such attacks could endanger some people close to the case.
Get the USSC to overrule its decision and allow you to shout Fire! In a theater. To me, thats where were heading.
He wants to be free to do that himself, and to throw anyone else who does it into a gulag.
Blah, blah, blah so fucking what.
The courts rule in Trump's favor, what implications would that have on other cases(non-Trump cases) where a gag order is required? Would the courts be barred from enforcing gag orders against, say, a gangster that is trying to intimidate witnesses because it's a violation of the gangster's first amendment rights?
Courts have said so repeatedly. Grow the fuck up Donny.
