Special Counsel Asks Judge to Impose Gag Order on Trump, Citing New FBI Threat

Special counsel Jack Smith’s office again requested a federal judge impose a gag order on former President Donald Trump in his classified records case, citing new evidence of an alleged threat targeting an FBI agent. In a court filing submitted on June 21, Mr. Smith urged U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon to rule in his favor, referring to a recent incident where a Trump supporter allegedly threatened an FBI agent. The motion emphasized the need to protect law enforcement agents involved in the case and highlighted the seriousness of the threat made. Trump’s legal team has opposed the gag order, arguing it infringes on his First Amendment rights and timing is suspect as he is a leading candidate for the 2024 election. The judge has not yet ruled on the latest request for a gag order.
