Donald Trump has unleashed a social media attack on Mark Milley, suggesting he should have been put to death for treason.
Special counsel Jack Smith’s office argued Friday that Donald Trump’s recent attacks on Gen. Mark Milley and one of their own newly appointed prosecutors bolster their case to put a gag order on the former president ahead of his trial in Washington, D.C.
In a 22-page filing, senior assistant special counsel Molly Gaston said prosecutors rejected Trump’s claims that their proposed gag order was an attempt to silence him on the campaign trail.
Rather, she said, it was an effort to prevent him from trying to make “use of his candidacy as a cover for making prejudicial public statements about this case.”
Prosecutors say that Trump’s attacks are a form of witness intimidation and a way to taint the jury pool ahead of his highly anticipated trial
The judge has warned Trump to refrain from “inflammatory” comments about the case and suggested she could expedite his trial if they continue.
Earlier this week, Chutkan denied Trump’s bid to remove her from the case.
