Trump appeals reinstated gag order in DC federal election case

Former President Donald Trump’s legal team has filed an appeal to remove the partial gag order imposed on him by a federal judge in his Washington, D.C., 2020 election interference case.

“No court in American history has imposed a gag order on a criminal defendant who is actively campaigning for public office — let alone the leading candidate for President of the United States,” Trump’s attorneys wrote in the filing.

“The Gag Order violates the First Amendment rights of President Trump and over 100 million Americans who listen to him,” they added.
