Trump Signed Documents Acknowledging Conditions of Release, Includes ‘Tampering, Retaliation, or Intimidation’

August 08, 2023

Former President Donald Trump signed documents agreeing to his conditions of release last week which include "tampering, retaliation, or intimidation." The document, signed by the former president on August 3, warns Trump not to "intimidate or attempt to intimidate" any witness, juror, informant, or officer of the court. The document similarly warns against "tampering" or "retaliation" involving other persons in the case. On his social media platform, the former president has called Special Counsel Jack Smith "deranged" and vowed retaliation against anyone who "comes after" him. Trump argued on Monday that the protective order would violate his First Amendment rights.
