Trump files emergency request asking appeals court to suspend gag order

Former President Donald Trump on Thursday evening filed an emergency request asking a federal appeals court to suspend a federal judges’s gag order limiting what he can say about his Jan. 6 criminal case.

In a filing to the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, Trump’s lawyers argued that U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan’s order was unconstitutional and infringed on his ability to speak as a presidential candidate in the 2024 race. 

“No court in American history has imposed a gag order on a criminal defendant who is actively campaigning for public office — let alone the leading candidate for president of the United States,”  the appeal argued.
