NEW: Tonight, concerned that Trump's escalating rhetoric..the Special Counsel's office is asking [View all]





NEW: Tonight, concerned that Trump’s escalating rhetoric about the standard instructions attached to the MAL search warrant will result in violence against law enforcement, the Special Counsel’s office is asking not for a gag order, but to modify Trump’s conditions of release. 1/







That matters because when Trump was first indicted, his bond — which he signed —
made clear that his continued release was conditioned on his compliance with certain terms. 2/









For example, Trump’s order not only prohibits him from violating any federal, state or local law while on release
but also precludes his speaking to any fact witnesses on a list shared with his lawyers
about the facts of the case, except through their respective lawyers.

But perhaps most importantly, if Judge Cannon denies this motion,
it is immediately appealable to the 11th Circuit under federal statute, which provides in relevant part:

Prosecutors Seek To Bar Trump In Classified Files Case From Statements Endangering Law Enforcement
The request follows a false claim by Trump earlier this week that the FBI agents who searched his home in August 2022 were “authorized to shoot me.”
