Special counsel Jack Smith has called on the judge presiding over his Jan. 6-related case against former President Donald Trump to implement a gag order on Trump for visiting a gun store in South Carolina.
In a filing on Friday, Smith implored U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan to gag Trump after the former president posted a video of him holding a custom Glock at a South Carolina gun store.
Smith argued, "The defendant either purchased a gun in violation of the law and his conditions of release or seeks to benefit from his supporters' mistaken belief that he did so."
The special counsel further argued, "In sum, the Court may enter an order in this case restricting the parties' extrajudicial statements if the statements present a 'substantial likelihood of material prejudice' as long as the Court's order is narrowly tailored to the objections of preventing comments that are likely to influence the actual outcome of trial or are likely to prejudice the venire."
Smith is desperate to silence Trump, as his ability to communicate with Americans is his greatest asset and one that has kept him above water.
If Smith wants to beat Trump, or at least gain a serious advantage, he needs him gagged by any means necessary.
