Donald Trump is one of the most important political figures of the day and, arguably, the most important Republican in national politics. But many in the media have taken the historic step of censoring him. For that reason, one of our goals is to publish information about Trump that is otherwise difficult-to-find.
Attorneys for former President Trump filed an appeal Thursday to the gag order in his federal election interference case that prevents him from disparaging witnesses. Judge Tanya Chutkan reinstated the gag order Monday.

|Statement on President Trump Filing Emergency Motion to Stay Gag Order|
|"No court in American history has imposed a gag order to silence any political candidate—until now. The district court’s unconstitutional Gag Order prevents President Trump—the leading candidate for President of the United States—from engaging in core political speech, which is entitled to the highest level of protection under the First Amendment. |
The Biden Administration chose to indict President Trump in the middle of campaign season in a politically motivated attempt to derail his candidacy, and the First Amendment allows President Trump to speak out against this unconstitutional tyranny. Worst of all, the gag order violates the civil rights of over 100 million Americans who follow President Trump and have a First Amendment right to receive and listen to his speech. The voters of America have a fundamental right to hear the uncensored voice of the leading candidate for the highest office in the land.
Today, President Trump has filed an emergency motion to halt the gag order in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. The Court of Appeals should immediately stay the unconstitutional Gag Order, and speedily reverse it." - Steven Cheung, spokesperson
