Judge Bars Trump From Speaking About Evidence in Case Against Him



A decision that has just been waiting in the wings – President Trump is now barred from speaking publicly in the frivolous case Manhattan D.A. Alvin Bragg has presented. Now, Trump can be held in contempt, notwithstanding the fact that he is prevented from defending himself in the purely political indictment now proceeding in court.

As the lead candidate in a current election, this is the kind of tactic that would make other totalitarian governments proud. When the top candidate is muzzled, what hope does the layman have against that kind of persecution?

Our first amendment has been under attack since Covid reared its unseemly head, but this ‘gag order’ is a new low for the country, which was founded on the rights of the people over government, yet the injustice delved out upon anyone who disagrees with the Swamp has become increasingly contrived, as was demonstrated by the recent guilty verdict heaved on the heads of Proud Boys for ‘seditious conspiracy’ – a charge that has rarely seen a courtroom since the Civil War.

Just the News: A New York state judge has barred former President Donald Trump from posting about some evidence on social media pertaining to an ongoing prosecution from Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg.

Bragg is pursuing charges against Trump in connection with a 2016 payment his then-personal attorney, Michael Cohen, made to Stormy Daniels. Trump has pleaded not guilty.

Judge Juan Merchan on Monday issued an order that prevents Trump from posting “any materials and information provided by the People to the Defense in accordance with their discovery obligations” and asserts that said materials “shall be used solely for the purposes of preparing a defense in this matter,” NBC News reported.

Merchan further barred anyone with access to the evidence from giving the materials to third parties without the court’s consent. Trump himself may only review some materials in the presence of his attorneys.

Bragg had previously sought such an order from the judge, pointing to Trump’s history of attacking witnesses and investigators, which the DA said could compromise their safety.

Trump, Bragg’s team wrote, “has a longstanding and perhaps singular history of attacking witnesses, investigators, prosecutors, trial jurors, grand jurors, judges, and others involved in legal proceedings against him.”

Trump’s team had argued that such an order would violate his First Amendment rights.

This is a developing story.
