Fox Information authorized editor Kerri Kupec Urbahn joined “The Faulkner Focus” Monday to debate how former President Trump is experiencing a double customary in relation to gag orders and why Fulton County, Georgia District Lawyer Fani Willis needs to be issued a gag order just like Trump’s. Co-defendants in Trump’s election interference case are reportedly contemplating asking for a gag order towards Willis.


KERRI KUPEC URBAHN: So let’s discuss first about what the aim of gag orders are within the first place. It is to stop hurt to the case or the folks concerned within the case that in any other case couldn’t be undone. And we have seen these gag orders slapped time and again after one particular person and one particular person solely. And his title is Donald Trump. However my query is how is the hurt that they are saying Trump is inflicting by tweeting about political bias is any completely different or worse than, say, the district lawyer in Georgia speaking publicly in regards to the case, saying issues like, ‘God is on my facet,’ or Letitia James, the lawyer basic in New York salivating over properties that Trump owns on Twitter, live-tweeting all these occasions. As a result of let me inform you one thing. If I am a enterprise particular person in New York, I would be very nervous that she would do the identical to me and apply the legislation in a method that is by no means been utilized earlier than towards me. Would not matter that I am not Trump. She’s completed it as soon as, would not she do it once more? And if I am a possible juror in Fulton County, how would I not be intimidated by the district lawyer, a really highly effective legislation enforcement officer, making all of those feedback? Would I not be nervous to not probably facet along with her if I am on that jury?



It is once more solely been utilized towards one particular person, a technique. And let’s not overlook within the civil fraud trial and that state of affairs in New York, the ACLU, who was no good friend of Donald Trump, advised that gag orders towards him are election interference. That is the ACLU speaking, not Donald Trump. And so, once more, in the event you’re simply the common particular person whether or not you are dwelling in Fulton County otherwise you personal a enterprise in New York, I do not see how you aren’t intimidated by the actions of each of those legislation enforcement officers. 

Democratic strategist Karen Finney warned Fulton County District Lawyer Fani Willis to rein herself in and cease doing media interviews forward of the court docket listening to Thursday within the Georgia election interference case towards former President Trump.

“Fani Willis, I believe, has already made herself a personality on this saga,” the previous Clinton marketing campaign adviser warned throughout an look on CNN Thursday morning.

Willis has been criticized for talking publicly to the media in regards to the case and defending her previous romantic relationship with former prosecutor Nathan Wade.

“She’s acquired to convey it down and keep targeted on doing the job of prosecuting this case,” Finney scolded on CNN. “I want she would cease doing interviews and actually concentrate on – simply prosecute the case and be very critical within the courtroom. No aptitude, nothing fancy. Simply the info, ma’am.”
