in actual hellworld news, lol trump is gonna hate this https://abcnews.go.com/US/special-counsel-seeks-narrowly-tailored-gag-order-trump/story?id=103197976

quote:

Special counsel seeks 'narrowly tailored' gag order against Trump

Special counsel Jack Smith and his team have requested a federal judge in Washington, D.C., impose a "narrowly tailored" order restricting former President Donald Trump from making public statements that they argue could "present a serious and substantial danger of prejudicing" his 2020 federal election interference case.

In an extraordinary filing released Friday, Smith's office accused Trump of engaging in a sweeping campaign of "disinformation" and harassment intended to intimidate witnesses, prosecutors and others involved in the prosecution he is facing.

"Like his previous public disinformation campaign regarding the 2020 presidential election, the defendant's recent extrajudicial statements are intended to undermine public confidence in an institution -- the judicial system -- and to undermine confidence in and intimidate individuals -- the Court, the jury pool, witnesses, and prosecutors," the filing says.

i mean, yeah, that gag order was probably necessary like yesterday but that's his whole shtick

Yeah that's also why they adopted hawaiian shirts and tiki torches and the ok hand symbol and the frog from a childish webcomic.

There was an essay from a late 80s/early 90s nazi that, paraphrased, instructed the next generation of fascists to "Don't loving run around with swastika tats on your face and iron crosses on your jackets. Blend in. Go to college. Get a job as a county clerk, or a dentist, or a building inspector. The way we will win is by infiltrating estabishments and diluting our outward identifying characteristics such that we can't be identified and shunned." the adoption of 'based' (if you will notice, a lot of right wing memery is stolen from AAVE. a LOT) is a direct descendant of that strategy. Because shitlibs are more scared about an occasional false positive than a thousand false negatives.

even though they were Republican they didnt realize theyd have to finish the job by continued lawfare - just keep indicting him, figure out something! - and that the rules werent going to save them against someone who allegedly literally burned the evidence around the back of his office

good job, they earned their fate here.
