Jimmy Kimmel mocks Eric Trump’s claim of being a “construction guy.”

The legal team of Donald Trump has asked special counsel Jack Smith to limit the length of submissions to a federal judge in the case involving government interference in the 2020 election and the events of January 6.

In a two-page filing sent to Judge Tanya Chutkan on Saturday, Mr Trump’s defence team asked that the judge prohibit Mr Smith’s prosecution team from exceeding the 45-page limit in an “oversized” filing that responds to Mr Trump’s attempt to have the case thrown out.

The court of appeals at the federal level has temporarily removed the restriction on Mr. Trump from speaking publicly in regards to the case.

The ruling from the US Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit was released on Friday, pausing the limited gag order in order to give judges additional time to consider Mr Trump’s request for a longer delay on the limitations placed on his speech during his appeals process.

The court stated that the pause should not be interpreted as a decision on the validity of Mr. Trump’s request.


On Monday, Trump will testify in a civil fraud trial.

Donald Trump is set to take the stand in his $250m civil fraud trial in New York on Monday.

According to CNN, the ex-president’s testimony will likely wrap up on Monday, but it may carry over to Wednesday due to the court being closed on Tuesday for election day.

The outcome of the trial could have significant implications for the future of Donald Trump’s business operations in New York. Letitia James, the state’s Attorney General, is pursuing restitution and an injunction to prevent the former president from conducting business in the state.

On Wednesday, Ivanka Trump, his daughter, will be giving testimony.

The legal team of Trump expresses dissatisfaction with the lengthy filings from special counsel Jack Smith.

In late October, Mr. Trump submitted four requests to dismiss the federal lawsuit against him based on statutory and constitutional reasons.

Initially, Mr. Smith requested that Judge Chutkan grant permission for the prosecution to go beyond the 45-page restriction when submitting their response to Mr. Trump’s motions.

However, the former president’s team argues that it is not needed and suggests that Mr. Smith submit four distinct responses to the motions to dismiss in order to prevent any confusion regarding the application of arguments in each party’s brief.

Trump criticizes DeSantis with latest verbal attack: ‘Injured bird plummeting from the sky’

Donald Trump went after Florida Governor Ron DeSantis in their shared home state with a new insult, calling him “a wounded falling bird from the skies”.

Both Donald Trump and Ron DeSantis were present at the Florida Freedom Summit, held at the Gaylord Palms Resort in Kissimmee near Orlando on Saturday. Other potential candidates for the 2024 presidential election, including Chris Christie, Asa Hutchinson, Tim Scott, and Vivek Ramaswamy, also attended the event. Ramaswamy, who was once a biotech entrepreneur but now advocates against “woke” culture, was among the attendees.

The potential candidate most commonly viewed as the sole option besides Trump with the potential to challenge the previous president, former Governor of South Carolina and UN Ambassador for Trump, Nikki Haley, was not present.

Following their individual submissions to be included in the 2024 Florida primary ballot, the contenders spoke to the assembled crowd of Republican supporters.

Despite his increasing legal troubles, Mr. Trump is still expected to secure the Republican nomination and received the most attention at the event.

According to Mr. Trump, his associates advised him not to attack the Florida Governor, who was once an ally but is now considered an enemy. They reminded him that the governor is a Republican, to which he responded that party affiliation did not matter to him. Despite this advice, he proceeded to attack the governor aggressively, causing him to falter and struggle like a wounded bird falling from the sky.

Trump has already begun to accuse his potential rivals in the 2024 election of engaging in fraudulent behavior.

Even though there is still over three months until the 2024 Iowa caucus begins, ex-President Donald Trump is already making claims of his political opponents cheating.

On Tuesday evening, a video was shared on the Instagram page of the leading Republican candidate, where Mr. Trump stated, “It’s no secret that the opposing side cheats, but we will not allow that to occur.”

On January 15th, he urged Iowa caucus attendees to take any necessary actions to help “make America great again.”

“If you take action, we will achieve victory. We will achieve a significant victory, and that is the necessary course of action,” stated the ex-president.

Donald Trump is well known for making false claims about election fraud.

Why were Trump’s lawyers accused of being misogynistic?

Judge Arthur Engoron scolded Trump’s lawyer Christopher Kise for bringing up the judge’s chief clerk, who was the target of negative remarks from Mr. Trump. These comments led to a gag order, which Mr. Trump violated twice.

The judge issued a warning, stating, “Please refrain from mentioning my staff in the future. Any additional mention of them will result in a gag order that includes attorneys.”

Judge Engoron implied that there may be a discriminatory attitude towards women that motivates the negative remarks towards his female clerk, but Mr. Trump’s lawyers firmly refuted this claim.

The judge presiding over a trial for fraud has broadened the scope of a restriction on public statements to now include attorneys representing Donald Trump.

On November 3rd, Judge Arthur Engoron issued an order, which came one day after he rebuked Mr. Trump’s lawyers for publicly criticizing the judge’s main law clerk for providing guidance during the trial.

The court issued a restriction on speech this month, prohibiting any individuals from making statements about the court’s staff, following the former president’s spread of untrue and insulting comments about her both inside and outside the courtroom, as well as on his Truth Social platform.

Following lengthy statements from both Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, who were questioned as part of the ongoing investigation by the New York Attorney General’s office, lead attorney Christopher Kise expressed frustration on Friday with the perceived bias of the clerk, as well as allegations from a right-wing news site, and the presence of what he views as two opposing parties on the bench.

Jenna Ellis, the lawyer, says Giuliani should be concerned.

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis brought the case, which includes four criminal indictments against former President Trump. It is a complex case that involves multiple attempts to overturn the 2020 election results in Georgia.

Ms. Ellis admitted to assisting in the making of false statements and writings, a serious crime that can result in up to five years of imprisonment. However, she received a sentence of five years of probation under the First Offender Act.

After exhibiting three years of positive conduct, this situation could potentially be resolved and she would not have a criminal record.

Important to note for prosecutors, Ms Ellis has agreed to assist with the continuation of the case. This could potentially make her a key witness against other defendants, such as the ex-president and Mr Giuliani.

The 2024 election trials pose the question: What exactly constitutes an insurrection?

Section 3 of the 14th Amendment includes a rule from the Civil War period that prohibits an individual from serving in office if they participated in an uprising or revolt after being sworn in. However, it does not explicitly define what constitutes an insurrection or the actions that would count as engagement in one.

Trump is requesting that the appeals court allow him to challenge witnesses in the January 6th case.

The legal team representing ex-president Donald Trump has requested that the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit revoke a district court ruling that prohibits him from making negative statements about witnesses and individuals involved in the ongoing case against him for election interference and conspiracy in Washington.

According to the legal documents submitted to the appeals court on Thursday, Mr. Trump’s lawyers claim that the restraining order issued by Judge Tanya Chutkan on October 16th was unwarranted and violated his freedom of speech as he is currently the front-runner for the US presidency.

When Judge Chutkan issued the order, she recognized that Mr. Trump was a candidate and stated that her order would not prevent him from criticizing the government or the Justice Department, or from making statements about his prosecution being politically driven.

However, she stated that she would forbid anyone connected to the lawsuit from “targeting” individuals working in the court system, prosecuting attorneys, or their loved ones.

She also forbade any comments regarding witnesses or potential witnesses, including their testimony. She mentioned that the former president’s past behavior and the likelihood of those targeted by him facing threats and harassment played a significant role in her choice to implement the order.
