Special Counsel Jack Smith’s request for a gag order against former President Donald Trump in the classified documents case has been rejected.

On Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon issued an an order that found Smith’s prosecutors failed to properly confer with Trump’s lawyers before filing the motion which violated court rules. Cannon said prosecutors did not give Trump’s team “sufficient time” to review their motion, which was filed Friday evening on Memorial Day weekend.

“Because the filing of the Special Counsel’s motion did not adhere to these basic requirements, it is due to be denied without prejudice,” the judge said. 

On Friday evening, Smith’s team reportedly filed a motion to Cannon, who is presiding over the classified documents case, requesting that she prohibit Trump from making statements that “pose a significant, imminent, and foreseeable danger to law enforcement agents participating in the investigation and prosecution of this case.”

Trump’s attorneys responded Tuesday calling Smith’s request “an extraordinary, unprecedented and unconstitutional censorship application” that “unjustly targets President Trump’s campaign speech while he is the leading candidate for the presidency.” 

In the filing, Trump’s attorneys asked the Florida federal judge to sanction and fine prosecutors from special counsel Jack Smith’s office.

Trump is facing federal charges for allegedly keeping classified documents at his Mar-a-Lago estate after he left the White House in 2021, and then obstructing the government’s efforts to retrieve them. FBI agents seized 33 boxes of documents in the raid.
