Cannon also held a hearing on special counsel Jack Smith’s request to modify the conditions of Trump’s release to bar him from making any further pointed criticism of the FBI agents who worked on his case. While not technically a gag order, Smith’s request, if granted, would function similarly, with the additional danger for Trump that a violation could result in him being sent to jail, as opposed to a fine.

But the hearing did not go well for the prosecutors. Cannon sounded skeptical that they could draw a direct line between Trump’s social media posts and the dangerous, threatening conduct of some of his supporters. She has yet to rule on the issue.

Separately, the judge overseeing Trump’s New York case loosened the restrictions of his gag order in that case (more on that below).
