On Monday at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, lawyers for Donald Trump and prosecutors from the special counsel‘s office will argue over whether a narrow gag order imposed and then temporarily lifted on the former president, is warranted in the run up to his Jan. 6 election subversion trial.

For weeks, the former president and prosecutors have parried back and forth over the gag order in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia where Judge Tanya Chutkan presides over Trump’s four-count indictment for allegedly conspiring to overturn the results of the 2020 election.

Chutkan set the narrow order less than a month ago, agreeing with prosecutors that Trump should be barred from attacking potential witnesses in the case, as well as from making direct attacks on court staff and prosecutors, but that was roughly it.
