Trump appealing narrow gag order imposed on him in federal election interference case
Former President Donald Trump’s lawyers say they are appealing a narrow gag order imposed on him in his federal 2020 election interference case
Trump's lawyers said in court papers that they will challenge an order from U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan that bars Trump from making statements targeting prosecutors, potential witnesses and court staff.
Special counsel Jack Smith's team sought the order against the Republican 2024 presidential front-runner over a litany of verbal attacks from him on likely witnesses and others. Prosecutors say the attacks were designed to undermine the public's confidence in the judicial process and taint the jury pool.
Trump vowed Monday to appeal the ruling, calling it unconstitutional.
