Statement on Filing Regarding Unconstitutional Gag Order

November 17, 2023

The Gag Order appoints an unelected federal judge to censor what the leading candidate for President of the United States may say to all Americans, just weeks before the Iowa caucuses. No court has ever upheld a gag order on core political speech at the height of a campaign. Just yesterday, the New York Appellate Division stayed a similar gag order against President Trump’s core political speech. The unconstitutional Gag Order in the DC case should be speedily reversed.
