    ACLU backs Trump in fight against DC judge’s gag order – By Chris Pandolfo (Fox News) / Oct 26, 2023

    Special counsel Jack Smith’s legal team has argued to reinstate a partial gag order on former President Donald Trump

    The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) on Wednesday said it will file an amicus brief arguing the limited gag order imposed on former President Donald Trump in his Washington, D.C., election interference case is unconstitutional.

    On the same day, federal prosecutors asked U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan to reinstate the currently paused gag order, stating the order is necessary to prevent Trump from targeting witnesses.

    Trump “has a demonstrated history of using inflammatory language to target certain individuals in a way that ‘pose[s] a significant and immediate risk’” that witnesses will be intimidated, Special Counsel Jack Smith’s team argued in court papers filed Wednesday.
