Legal analyst says Fani should face a gag order

Precise News

Fox News legal editor Kerri Kupec Urbahn joined “The Faulkner Focus” Monday to discuss how former President Trump is experiencing a double standard when it comes to gag orders and why Fulton County, Georgia District Attorney Fani Willis should be issued a gag order similar to Trump’s.
Co-defendants in Trump’s election interference case are reportedly considering asking for a gag order against Willis.
LAWYER WHO EXPOSED FANI WILLIS RELATIONSHIP SAYS NO WAY TRUMP CASE GOES FORWARD BEFORE ELECTION KERRI KUPEC URBAHN: So let’s talk first about what the purpose of gag orders are in the first place.
It’s to prevent harm to the case or the people involved in the case that otherwise could not be undone.
And we’ve seen these gag orders slapped again and again after one person and one person only.
And if I’m a potential juror in Fulton County, how would I not be intimidated by the district attorney, a very powerful law enforcement officer, making all of these comments?
And let’s not forget in the civil fraud trial and that situation in New York, the ACLU, who was no friend of Donald Trump, suggested that gag orders against him are election interference.
Democratic strategist Karen Finney warned Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis to rein herself in and stop doing media interviews ahead of the court hearing Thursday in the Georgia election interference case against former President Trump.

NEUTRAL

On “The Faulkner Focus” on Monday, Fox News legal editor Kerri Kupec Urbahn talked about how former President Trump is subject to a double standard when it comes to gag orders and why Fulton County, Georgia District Attorney Fani Willis ought to receive a gag order akin to Trump’s. It has been reported that co-defendants in Trump’s election meddling case are thinking of requesting a gag order against Willis.

The lawyer who revealed the relationship between Fanani and Trump says that the Trump case will not proceed before the election.

KERRI KUPEC URBAHN: Alright, first let’s discuss why gag orders are issued in the first place. It is done to stop harm that would otherwise be irreversible from being done to the case or the parties involved. Furthermore, we’ve witnessed these gag orders being applied repeatedly to one individual at a time. Furthermore, he goes by Donald Trump. However, I wonder how the harm that they claim Trump is causing by tweeting about political bias is any different or worse than, for example, the district attorney in Georgia discussing the case in public and declaring, “God is on my side,” or New York Attorney General Letitia James drooling over Trump’s properties on Twitter and live-tweeting all those events. Since I have a confession to make. If I were a businessperson in New York, I would be extremely concerned that she would treat me similarly and apply the law against me in a way that has never been done before. It makes no difference that I’m not Trump. Since she’s already done it once, why wouldn’t she do it again? Additionally, if I were a prospective juror in Fulton County, how could I not be terrified by the district attorney’s intimidating demeanor as a highly influential member of the law enforcement community? How could I not be anxious to avoid siding with her in the event that I was selected for the jury?

[..].

Once again, it’s only been used in one way and against one person. Remember that the ACLU, who was not a fan of Donald Trump, claimed that orders to keep quiet about him were an attempt to sabotage the election in the civil fraud trial and that circumstance in New York? It’s the ACLU speaking, not President Trump. And so, once more, I fail to see how the acts of these two law enforcement officials could not intimidate the average person, whether they are business owners in New York or residents of Fulton County.

Ahead of the court hearing on Thursday in the Georgia election meddling case against former President Trump, Democratic strategist Karen Finney advised Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis to exercise restraint and cease speaking with the media.

When the former Clinton campaign adviser appeared on CNN on Thursday morning, she cautioned, “I think Fani Willis has already made herself a character in this saga.”.

For discussing the case in public and defending her previous romantic relationship with former prosecutor Nathan Wade, Willis has come under fire.

Finney chastised the woman on CNN, saying, “She has to bring it down and stay focused on doing the job of prosecuting this case.”. “I wish she would just prosecute the case and be very serious in court and stop doing interviews. Nothing fancy or flamboyant. The details only, ma’am. ****.
