Judge Chutkan Scoffs at Trump’s Lawyers: Trump Doesn’t Have “Unfettered First Amendment Rights”

On Monday, Judge Tanya Chutkan imposed a gag order on President Trump amidst a contentious election season.

The motion to gag was filed last month by Special Counsel Jack Smith, citing a “sustained campaign of prejudicial public statements regarding witnesses, the Court, the District and prosecutors” made by Trump since September 15th.

During Monday’s hearing, John Lauro – Trump’s lawyer – argued that such an order would prevent the president from campaigning and engaging in dialogue about important issues.

As per this ruling, Trump will be prohibited from speaking out against Special Counsel Jack Smith or any other court witnesses.

Judge Chutkan responded to Trump’s lawyers with a solemn expression before informing them that Trump does not possess unlimited First Amendment Rights.

“Chutkan laughed after Trump’s lawyer John Lauro argued that the current conditions are working, saying she disagreed before she went through some of Trump’s statements one by one. Chutakn said Trump “doesn’t” have unfettered First Amendment rights, and that there’s “no question” that the court is entitled to draw restrictions to ensure the fair administration of justice.” NBC News reported.

“You keep talking about censorship like the defendant has unfettered First Amendment rights. He doesn’t,” Judge Chutkan said, according to the AP. “We’re not talking about censorship here. We’re talking restrictions to ensure there is a fair administration of justice on this case.”

The trial date is scheduled for March 4, 2024.

  3. I think we need to start electing gorillas..after Whoopi and Maxine waters then this Chutkan judge the gorillas are certainly better looking let alone a hell of a lot smarter and more polite

  4. That statement should be grounds for disbarment everyone in America has that right it is in the Constitution we understand she cant stand Trump but we do have the right to free speech what a Idiot

  5. I can’t wait to see the look on her criminal face when she finds out the Jag officers come to take her to Gitmo!

  6. Everyone has free speech Judge Chutkan. It is understood that free speech doesn’t include a detailed plan to murder someone. However, since when is it not free speech to call someone “a thug”? If the shoe fits, wear it!!! This is ELECTION INTERFERENCE. Maybe we should restrict Chutkan from calling President Trump “a criminal”.

  7. All Trump is doing is revealing what a bunch of biased Lefty TDS sufferers Smith, Bragg and Willis are, and the FACT that they’re colluding with Sniffy’s DOJ to shut him up and keep him off the ballot, which is ILLEGAL. If this ‘judge’ doesn’t agree with Trump, that’s HER problem…the 1A was created JUST FOR speech some may not agree with!
