Special Counsel Jack Smith filed a gag order request against the former president, claiming Trump’s response to his Chief of Staff Mark Meadows’ plea agreement amounts to witness intimidation. Smith, in his gag order request to U.S. District Court Judge Tanya Chutkan, argued that Trump’s alleged threats pose a grave threat to the very notion of a fair trial based on the facts and the law.

Chutkan, who is the presiding Judge over Trump’s January 6 trial, ruled in favor of Smith on Sunday. The Judge’s ruling prompted a fiery response from the former president on his Truth Social account. Trump described the gag order as “illegal and unconstitutional.” Trump maintained that the order, which violates his “First Amendment Right of Free Speech, will not stand.

“I have just learned that the very Biased, Trump-Hating Judge in D.C., who should have RECUSED herself due to her blatant and open loathing of your favorite President, ME, has reimposed a GAG ORDER which will put me at a disadvantage against my prosecutorial and political opponents,” Trump wrote on Truth Social. “This order, according to many legal scholars, is unthinkable! It illegally and unconstitutionally takes away my First Amendment Right of Free Speech, in the middle of my campaign for president, where I am leading against BOTH Parties in the Polls. Few can believe this is happening, but I will appeal. How can they tell the leading candidate that he, and only he, is seriously restricted from campaigning in a free and open manner? It will not stand!”

The gag order was first placed on Trump earlier this year. However, Chutkan —who was appointed by President Barack Obama— in 2014 temporarily lifted the gag order as she considered Trump’s request to keep it on hold while he challenged the order in a higher court.
