Trump described special prosecutor Jack Smith, whom he was accused of trying to nullify the results of the 2020 elections held before the January 6, 2021, Congressional raid, as a “rogue prosecutor” and “deranged man” in his speech at the rally in New Hampshire.
Prosecutors requested a confidentiality order on the case on August 4 to prevent Trump from sharing the evidence with the public, which they believe is aimed at influencing public perception rather than due process.
Donald Trump’s legal team argued that the request would violate the right to freedom of expression, which is guaranteed by the 1st Amendment to the US Constitution, while Trump said he would continue to talk about the case and “won’t take away his right to freedom of speech”.
