Turley Says Trump Gag Order Unconstitutional

Law professor and Fox News contributor Jonathan Turley recently found a PERFECT platform to tell America about the temporary freeze on the gag order issued in President Donald Trump's D.C. election interference case.

Fox News' The Ingraham Angle.

Turley didn't waste much time getting to his opinion.

He started by saying straight up that he views the gag order as unconstitutional.

Fox News host Laura Ingraham said "Let’s start with the D.C. Circuit. Does this temporary freeze signal that there is likelihood of success on the merits with the Trump legal team’s First Amendment claims for lifting that gag order?"

Turley had his answer ready to go:

"Well, Laura, it’s hard to say because we have to wait to see how the panel reacts in its review, particularly the oral argument," he began.

"They are essentially freezing any action here. They could have left it to continue, to continue while they reviewed it. But, they decided, perhaps in an abundance of caution, to order this stoppage until they can give it a full review. The reason I think this could be quite significant is I think that the order is unconstitutional. I said that when it was first issued," Turley noted.

"It’s a very odd concept of an order because the court here insisted on having this trial before the election sort of shoe-horned it in before Super Tuesday," Turley added. He went on:

Everyone in this election is going to be talking about these cases, except one person under this gag order. And that is Donald Trump. He can’t criticize the prosecutors. He can’t criticize witnesses. And Special Counsel Jack Smith just asked for this order to be expanded in an equally unconstitutional way. That has drawn the criticism, even of the ACLU, which is a staunch critic of Donald Trump, but the ACLU has said look, this is flagrantly unconstitutional.

What do you think about what Turley had to say?
