“Lawyers for Donald Trump have asked a New York district judge to terminate a partial gag order placed on the former president now that his hush money trial is over. … ‘Now that the trial is concluded, the concerns articulated by the government and the court do not justify continued restrictions on the First Amendment rights of President Trump — who remains the leading candidate [sic] in the 2024 presidential election — and the American people,’ Trump’s attorneys said.” (06/05/24)
