BREAKING: Federal judge DENIES gag order for Trump and chastises Jack Smith in the process…

A federal judge just denied a gag order request for Trump by Biden hack special counsel Jack Smith in the classified documents case taking place in Florida. And then she chastised Smith for not reaching out to Trump’s attorneys over the matter.

The gag order request came after Trump echoed the news that FBI agents were told they could assassinate him during the search of Mar-a-Lago.

Here’s more from The Hill:

Judge Aileen Cannon chastised special counsel Jack Smith’s team Tuesday after she said they failed to meaningfully reach out to former President Trump’s attorneys on a motion to limit his speech in the classified documents case after Trump claimed law enforcement had the power to assassinate him.

She likewise denied a motion from Trump’s legal team seeking to censure prosecutors over the matter.

Trump’s lawyers fired back Tuesday, after Smith asked the judge to put a stop to his false claims that FBI agents had a green light to assassinate him during their search for documents at the former president’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.

A late Friday filing from the Justice Department pointed to what they deemed “several intentionally false and inflammatory statements” that violate existing limitations placed on Trump as part of his conditions of pretrial release.

Prosecutors — who like Trump’s team are required to confer with the other party before filing motions in the case — did not do so until 5:30 p.m. ahead of Memorial Day weekend.

“The Court finds the Special Counsel’s pro forma ‘conferral’ to be wholly lacking in substance and professional courtesy,” Cannon wrote.

I’m glad the judge denied Smith’s demand for another gag order. I don’t believe for a second that it had anything to do with Trump’s statement either. He’ll use anything as a pretext to help Biden win, especially if it means shutting Trump up.
