Trump Is Tempting Fate on Gag Orders

Aaron Blake: “It’s difficult to think of a more combustible mixture than Donald Trump and a gag order. Even with Trump’s freedom on the line, that combination is smoldering again.”

“After violating gag orders on at least two and arguably three previous occasions — and after a judge this week employed a novel tactic to get him to stop — Trump is flouting his latest one. He’s doing so in a way that reinforces just how much latitude he’s been given, and just how untenable that latitude might be as his various cases proceed.”

“The faceoff is one with increasingly profound implications not just for Trump but for a country whose judicial system is tasked with holding him legally accountable but is taking a beating as judges try to figure out what to do.”

NPR: Threats towards judges in Trump-related cases have hit unprecedented levels.
