Jack Smith moves for gag order on Trump

Bugsy McGurk



Rebuild With Biden!
Smith has shown lots of patience with Trump's conduct.
Trump is up to his old tricks, he will never change his M.O. in my estimation.

Smith further cited Trump’s posting on Aug. 4, the day after his federal court arraignment, when he wrote: “IF YOU GO AFTER ME, I’M COMING AFTER YOU!”

“The government seeks a narrow, well-defined restriction that is targeted at extrajudicial statements that present a serious and substantial danger of materially prejudicing this case,” Smith wrote, adding that he would also like Chutkan to monitor Trump’s attempts to poll the District of Columbia because such a survey could actually be designed to sway public opinion in favor of Trump ahead of a trial.

“The defendant’s past conduct, including conduct that has taken place after and as a direct result of the indictment in this case, amply demonstrates the need for this order,” Smith wrote. “As illustrated by the examples discussed above, the defendant’s statements reasonably could have a material impact on the impartiality of the jury pool while simultaneously influencing witness testimony.”
