Appeals court upholds but narrows Donald Trump gag order in election interference case

Trump gag order largely upheldDonald Trump will be prohibited from making public statements about witness participation in his federal election interference case after an appeals court largely upheld a gag order against him on Friday.

The gag order from U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan applied to Trump, his lawyers, and prosecutors in the criminal case, which is slated for trial in March. Trump argued the order violated his First Amendment free speech rights.

The original gag order restrained Trump, his lawyers, and the prosecution from making public statements that targeted parties, lawyers, court and legal staff, and any reasonably foreseeable witness or the substance of their testimony.

The D.C. appeals court gave Trump some additional leeway by allowing him and his lawyers to publicly target special counsel Jack Smith. However, it said Trump, his lawyers, and the prosecution won't be allowed to make public statements about witness participation in the case.
