A three-judge panel on the DC Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday released an opinion largely upholding the gag order imposed on fat former President Trump by Judge Tanya Chutkan in the post-2020 election coup attempt, apparently only allowing a limited exception for Trump to bitch about Justice Department special counsel Jack Smith on Truth Social and at his stupid rallies.
“The Order is affirmed to the extent it prohibits all parties and their counsel from making or directing others to make public statements about known or reasonably foreseeable witnesses concerning their potential participation in the investigation or in this criminal proceeding. The Order is also affirmed to the extent it prohibits all parties and their counsel from making or directing others to make public statements about – counsel in the case other than the Special Counsel, members of the court’s staff and counsel’s staffs, or the family members of any counsel or staff member – if those statements are made with the intent to materially interfere with, or to cause others to materially interfere with, counsel’s or staff’s work in this criminal case, or with the knowledge that such interference is highly likely to result. We vacate the Order to the extent it covers speech beyond those specified categories,” they wrote. Not really a “win” for the fat bastard.
