There are multiple reports from the mainstream media stating that the Manhattan judge who will proceed over Trump’s first court appearance will issue a tyrannical order.
According to the Daily Mail, the judge will take an “unprecedented step” to silence the current Republican presidential primary candidate front runner. The gag order could prevent the former president from campaigning and undercut his ability to fundraise.
“The Trump legal team now thinks that the Manhattan judge will take the unprecedented step of silencing the presidential frontrunner with an unconstitutional gag order tomorrow,” the source told the Daily Mail. “The Trump legal team is considering adding a First Amendment lawyer to the effort to combat this and will fight it all the way.”
“President Trump stands for transparency and our American Constitution, and any attempt to prevent him, the leading candidate for President, from exercising his First Amendment right is a tyrannical, third-world country move which further proves that this is nothing more than a political witch-hunt utilizing a weaponized justice system,” Trump campaign spokesman Steven Cheung said. “All Americans should be concerned about their rights being violated and any attempt to obstruct President Trump’s right to use his voice in order to speak truth to power should never be tolerated. The whole targeted crusade is a complete political farce by the Manhattan DA meant to manipulate and interfere with an election against President Trump and his supporters.”
If a gag order is imposed, as reports claim, Trump could face an additional 30 days in jail and a $1,000 fine.

The President’s legal team has announced that they will immediately file a motion to dismiss once they have a look at the indictment.
“We will take the indictment. We will dissect it,” Trump’s attorney Joe Tacopina told CNN on Sunday morning. “The team will look at every, every potential issue that we will be able to challenge, and we will challenge. And of course, I very much anticipate a motion to dismiss coming because there’s no law that fits this.”
