    Former President Donald Trump issued a fiery response to the Justice Department’s request for a gag order

    On Monday, Trump’s legal team filed a 25-page response to the DOJ’s request.

    “The prosecution would silence President Trump, amid a political campaign where his right to criticize the government is at its zenith, all to avoid a public rebuke of this prosecution. However, ‘above all else, the First Amendment means that government has no power to restrict expression because of its message, its ideas, its subject matter, or its content,’” the brief states.

    The document adds, “The prosecution may not like President Trump’s entirely valid criticisms, but neither it nor this Court are the filter for what the public may hear.”

    The brief disputes claims by prosecutors that Trump’s history of fiery comments about political opponents threatens legal proceedings. Special counsel Jack Smith’s team is aiming to restrict the former president’s ability to comment on the case, claiming his famously fiery and antagonistic rhetoric could affect jurors’ perceptions.

    Read Trump’s full response below:

    “The defendant knows that when he publicly attacks individuals and institutions, he inspires others to perpetrate threats and harassment against his targets,” prosecutors previously claimed.

    1. The Communists have done this in other countries they’ve conquered! Don’t think IT CAN’T HAPPEN HERE!
      It can, and it is!
      They’re using LawFare and a corrupt DOJ to cripple and maybe jail the installed Infiltrator’s competitor! More dastardly, since Trump IS WAY AHEAD in polling!
      Big Picture: THIS IS WRONG!
      What is the solution? The Leftists are firmly ensconced in our government! They’re attacking our candidate in unscrupulous ways! They can’t win an election, so they’ve stooped to the tried and true Communist weapon…a weaponized legal system.
      Patriots had better realize HOW FAR GONE AMERICA is, and formulate a plan…a defense to save Freedom on planet Earth!
      Stop believing, “It Can’t Happen Here!”
      It’s happening…you’re living it!
