No Gag Order For Trump In Florida Case, Trump Can Question FBI Use Of Deadly Force Plan

U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon, who is presiding over the phony classified documents case, issued an order denying corrupt Democrat prosecutor Jack Smith's request for a gag order against former President Donald Trump. Judge Cannon denied the Democrat

prosecutors’ request ruling they didn’t give Mr. Trump’s lawyers adequate time to discuss the matter before it was filed Friday evening.

Prosecutors said in court papers late Friday that Trump’s “false” suggestion that federal agents “were complicit in a plot to assassinate him” exposes law enforcement officers “to the risk of threats, violence, and harassment.” They had urged the judge to bar Trump from making any comments that “pose a significant, imminent, and foreseeable danger to law enforcement agents” participating in the case, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported.


Defense attorneys in a court filing late Monday called prosecutors’ proposed restriction on Trump’s speech “unconstitutional” and noted that the identities of law enforcement officers in the case are subject to a protective order preventing their public release. Defense attorneys said they asked Smith’s team on Friday if the two sides could meet on Monday to give the defense time to discuss the request with Trump before prosecutors filed it, but the Democrat prosecutors refused President Trump’s attorneys that accommodation.

The judge further warned prosecutors that failing to comply with court requirements in the future may lead to sanctions. She denied the request without prejudice, meaning prosecutors could file it again.

The Democrat prosecutor’s demand for a gag order came in the wake of revelations – unsealed by Judge Cannon – that the FBI had prepared an elaborate “use of deadly force” plan prior to raiding former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate. The documents unsealed revealed shocking new details about the FBI’s plans to use deadly force and even engage the former president and his security detail in a gunfight if they resisted the Democrats’ operation to seize the documents Mr. Trump retained at his Florida estate.

The document is just one of many court filings recently ordered unsealed by Judge Aileen Cannon, who is presiding over the matter in southern Florida.


In their demand for a gag order the Democrat prosecutors characterized Mr. Trump’s statements regarding the FBI’s use of force plan as “false” and that they “pose a significant, imminent, and foreseeable danger to law enforcement agents” participating in the case.

However, as we noted in our article, “Deep State Trump Assassination Plot Exposed?” the elaborate use of deadly force plan was anything but routine for a search for and collection of disputed documents. The FBI raiding party included a medic. Their operations orders included directions to a nearby trauma center.

And while the FBI has taken great umbrage at anyone even asking the question “Why the elaborate use of deadly force plan?” the FBI’s record of giving honest answers when questioned about its policies is spotty at best.

Here’s the bottom line: Attorney General Merrick Garland approved the FBI raid of Mar-a-Lago. And the contingent instructions stated if any resistance was offered the FBI were to use deadly force against the former President of the United States.

There are good reporters and former federal law enforcement officials who are in the know who have tried to explain that the use of deadly force plan in the Mar-a-Lago raid documents was “routine” and that the whole thing was worked out on an amicable basis between the FBI and the Secret Service.

We are not buying it, because once unleashed, one can only assume that the FBI would proceed according to its plan for the Mar-a-Lago raid and the past practices of federal law enforcement, which has been to use deadly force at the first sign of resistance.

We commend Judge Cannon for refusing the Democrat prosecutors’ demand for a gag order against former President Trump. When questioned about the Mar-a-Lago raid’s use of deadly force plan the FBI and Democrat prosecutor Jack Smith have given answers that are disingenuous at best. President Trump should be free to speak about this outrage and the media should continue to ask the question “Why” deadly force was ever contemplated in a routine visit to collect disputed documents from Mar-a-Lago.

Judge Cannon is the only qualified judge hearing any of the charges against Trump. The rest are frauds. As for the contention that Trump would endanger any federal law enforcment officers, that's just a procedural argument representing a bunch of crybabies. It's interesting that the prosecution would refuse to meet with the defense on the one day they are able to attend such a meeting due to the Memorial Day break in NYC. That tells us a lot.
