Readers Write: Equality for Trump’s lawyers

“Trump’s pattern of attacking family members of presiding jurists and attorneys assigned to his cases serves no legitimate purpose” Judge Juan M. Merchan wrote as he expanded the gag order on Trump’s hush money criminal case.

The judge continued: “It merely injects fear in those assigned or called to participate in the proceedings that not only they but their family members are ‘fair game’ for Defendant’s vitriol.”

The most vicious Trump supporters follow up on such threats made, even to the point of issuing life-threatening messages. Besides those who testify against Trump, imagine the fear it could instill in the minds of prospective jurors.

“Trump’s lawyers fought the gag order and expansion citing constitutional concerns about restricting Trump’s speech further while he’s campaigning for president and fighting criminal charges.” How would these lawyers feel if it were their lives that were threatened?

What if some supporters of Biden took the same approach as the vicious Trump supporters and decided to threaten those who support Trump, such as his lawyers, who have come up with these supposedly legalistic maneuvers?

Experiencing what others have gone through or are going through, namely the threats, might give these lawyers pause to follow Trump’s orders, and to realize that money ain’t everything. Perhaps in law school, these lawyers never took a course in DEMOCRACY. “GOD save these lawyers!”
