Washington, D.C. — House GOP Chairwoman Elise Stefanik released the following statement after a New York appellate court lifted the unconstitutional “gag order” on President Trump.


“I am pleased to see that after my ethics complaint to the New York Commission on Judicial Conduct against Manhattan Judge Arthur Engoron, an appellate court has lifted the unconstitutional gag order against President Trump. We must fight to protect all defendants’ First Amendment and due-process rights. This is so much bigger than President Trump. If Democrats can do this to a billionaire, former President, and leading presidential candidate, just imagine what they can do to the rest of us. That’s why I filed my ethics complaint against Judge Engoron, and I will continue to fight for all New Yorkers.”
