US federal appeals court opens hearing into Trump gag order

Washington, Nov 20 (UNI) The US Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit began a hearing on Monday into former US President Trump’s challenge against a gag order in his criminal case regarding his alleged attempt to overturn the 2020 election.
US District Judge Tanya Chutkan, who is overseeing the case, issued the gag order last month after the government had shown that Trump’s public attacks on individuals, including those related to the case, had led to them being threatened and harassed.
Judge Patricia Millet, one of the three judges on the panel hearing the appeal, sharply challenged the merit of the Trump team’s proposed legal test of “clear and present danger” as a basis for a gag order instead.
