HERE WE GO AGAIN: Alvin Bragg wants gag order on Trump before trial

Another prosecutor wants to shut Trump up during an election year and this time it’s hack New York City District Attorney Alvin Bragg.

Trump’s hush-money trial is set to begin next month and Bragg wants Trump gagged before it begins:

Prosecutors in Donald Trump’s New York hush-money criminal case asked a judge Monday to impose a gag order on the former president ahead of next month’s trial, citing a “long history of making public and inflammatory remarks” about people involved in his legal cases.

The Manhattan district attorney’s office asked for what it called a “narrowly tailored” gag order that would bar Trump from making or directing others to make public statements about potential witnesses and jurors, as well as statements meant to interfere with or harass the court’s staff, prosecution team or their families.

“Self-regulation is not a viable alternative, as defendant’s recent history makes plain,” prosecutors wrote in court papers. Trump, they said, “has a longstanding and perhaps singular history” of using social media, campaign speeches and other public statements to “attack individuals that he considers to be adversaries.”

The requested gag order would not ban Trump from commenting about the Manhattan district attorney, Alvin Bragg.

Bragg jumped the shark with his indictment but I guarantee you whoever the judge is will grant Bragg’s gag order and Trump will have to challenge that as he defends himself over bogus charges.
