A three-judge panel in the District of Columbia Appeals Court heard arguments today regarding the gag order imposed on former President Donald Trump in relation to his 2020 election subversion case. The hearing concluded with Trump's lawyer engaging in a debate with Judge Patricia Millett over the balance between the former president's free speech rights and the necessity of the order to safeguard witnesses, prosecutors, and court personnel from potential intimidation.
The limited gag order, initially issued by the judge overseeing Trump's 2020 election subversion case, was temporarily suspended pending the three-judge panel's deliberations. . .
