“His presidential candidacy does not give him carte blanche to vilify public servants who are simply doing their jobs,” explained Judge Tanya Chutkan when she issued her ruling.
Trump is no longer allowed to harass or threaten certain people, due to the restrictions imposed on him this morning, including Special Counsel Jack Smith’s staff, court personnel and numerous witnesses:
“Mr. Trump is a criminal defendant. He is facing four felony charges. He is under the supervision of the criminal justice system and he must follow his conditions of release.”
“Politics stops at this courtroom door.”
