Biden’s Department of Justice Asks Court To Limit What Trump Can Say

Aug 7, 2023 | Political News

In a move that raises startling questions about speech limitations, the Justice Department has asked US District Court Judge Tanya Chutkan to implement a protective order in the case against former President Donald Trump. The request came on the heels of Trump’s strong-worded post on the Truth Social platform and seeks to cage his public comments concerning the pending legal issues.

The prosecution team is advocating for this protective order citing the necessity to ensure Trump and his legal unit are unable to disseminate case-related information in the public sphere. The legal team, in response, had asked for an extension of time to parley the matter but the request was quickly denied by Judge Chutkan who maintained Monday’s deadline.
