On Friday, Special Counsel Jack Smith filed a motion with a federal judge in order to have a gag order placed on leading Republican presidential candidate and 45th President Donald Trump in his case into the former president’s conduct following 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,” the filing says, per Politico.
