Trump said that sleazyballs, lowlifes, and grifters can speak out


Former President Trump complained Wednesday about the gag order limiting him from attacking witnesses, jurors and court staff in his New York hush money case, calling it unfair that others could speak out while he could not.
There is no evidence the Biden White House has had any involvement in Trump’s legal cases.
The gag order in the hush money case bars Trump from hurling insults at witnesses, jurors, prosecutors, court staff and the judge’s family.
It doesn’t bar him from attacking Judge Juan Merchan or Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg (D), both of whom Trump goes after daily.
Merchan has fined Trump for 10 separate violations of the gag order, totaling $10,000, and this week he warned further violations could warrant incarceration.
Trump told reporters he would be willing to go to jail for violating the gag order.
“This judge has given me a gag order and said you’ll go to jail if you violate it,” he told reporters Monday.
“And frankly, you know what, our Constitution is much more important than jail.


On Wednesday, the ex-president expressed his displeasure over the gag order that prevented him from disparaging the jurors, witnesses, and court personnel in his New York hush money case. He claimed it was unfair that some people were able to speak up while he was unable to.

“It is a very unpleasant sensation to have your fundamental right to free speech, which is so important to our nation, so unjustly taken away from you, particularly when all of the sleazebags, lowlifes, and grifters that you disagree with are free to say anything they want,” Trump wrote on Truth Social.

He continued, saying the gag order was a part of a “sophisticated hit job” coming out of the White House. “It is hard to sit back and listen to lies and false statements be made against you knowing that if you respond, even in the most modest fashion, you are told by a Corrupt and Highly Conflicted Judge that you will be PUT IN PRISON, maybe for a long period of time,” he said.

There is no proof that the Biden White House has been involved in any way with Trump’s legal actions.

In the hush money case, Trump is prohibited from insulting juries, witnesses, prosecutors, court employees, and the judge’s family due to the gag order. Despite Trump’s daily attacks on Judge Juan Merchan and Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg (D), it doesn’t stop him from doing so.

As the presumed Republican nominee for president in November, Trump has criticized the limitations, claiming they infringe on his First Amendment rights to fight back against political attacks.

Merchan fined Trump $10,000 for breaking the gag order ten times in a row, and this week he issued a warning that breaking the order again might result in jail time. Regarding the gag order violation, Trump informed reporters that he would be prepared to serve time in jail.

“This judge has placed a gag order on me and threatened to put me in jail if I break it,” he said to reporters on Monday. “And to be completely honest, jail is not nearly as important as our Constitution. It’s not even near. It’s a sacrifice I’d make any day. “.
