U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan is overseeing the 2020 election obstruction case against former president Donald Trump.
Last week Judge Chutkan issued a warning that there are limits on what the former president and others can say publicly about evidence in the investigation.
The case against the former president is primarily focused on his pressure on state officials to overturn election results in Joe Biden’s election win.
Trump’s defense argues that the order would impede his First Amendment right.
What would happen if Trump were to go against this and speak out?
Former president Donald Trump announced on his social media app, Truth Social, that he will be skipping the Republican debate.
Trump posted, “Many people are asking whether or not I will be doing the DEBATES? ALL AMERICANS have been clamoring for a President of extremely High Intelligence. As everyone is aware, my Poll numbers, over a ‘wonderful’ field of Republican candidates, are extraordinary. In fact, I am leading the runner-up, whoever that may now be, by more than 50 Points. Reagan didn’t do it, and neither did others. People know my Record, one of the BEST EVER, so why would I Debate? I’M YOUR MAN. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”
Right now the former president is leading the polls by 62%, but will skipping the debate help or hurt him?
