“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”
Jack Smith, the special counsel going after Trump, has asked a judge to issue a gag order, preventing Trump from talking about him, the judge, witnesses and pretty much anyone else involved.
It’s the latest example of the left reminding us that they have privileges that others don’t possess.

Jack Smith seeks gag order on Trump
Special counsel Jack Smith is asking a judge to issue a gag order against Donald Trump, prohibiting him from attacking prosecutors, the judge or potential witnesses who may testify in his federal criminal trial stemming from his effort to subvert the 2020 election.
“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,” prosecutors wrote, adding that Trump’s past salvos had already resulted in harassment of potential witnesses.
On Friday afternoon, U.S. District Court Judge Tanya Chutkan unsealed filings revealing the government’s week-old request, arguing that Trump is undermining the fairness of the proceedings through “disparaging and inflammatory attacks” on prosecutors, witnesses and the judge in the case…
Trump lashed out on his social media network Truth Social soon after news of the request broke, writing: “So, I’m campaigning for President against an incompetent person who has WEAPONIZED the DOJ & FBI to go after his Political Opponent, & I am not allowed to COMMENT? They Leak, Lie, & Sue, & they won’t allow me to SPEAK?”
I don’t blame Trump for lashing out. Everyone is sick and tired of this. Mark Levin appears to agree.
ENOUGH OF THIS BULLSH*T FROM THIS FACIST PROSECUTOR. IT'S JACKAS* SMITH WHO IS THREATENING THE PEOPLE OF THIS COUNTRY. THIS IS THE UNITED STATES, NOT SOME THIRD WORLD HELLHOLE JACKAS* SMITH IS USED TO OPERATING IN.https://t.co/WBqCbzYww2
