2024 ELECTION/LEGAL: “Former President Donald Trump has ramped up his rhetoric and vowed to keep speaking out in opposition to his criminal indictments as he campaigns for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination…

Trump has targeted judges, prosecutors and potential witnesses in posts railing against his four active criminal cases, prompting some legal experts to predict that a gag order may be in Trump’s future.

But even if that doesn’t happen, his aggressive criticism could incentivize judges to bring his cases to trial more quickly. That would be a blow to Trump, who has argued that his trials should be postponed until after the November 2024 presidential election.”
