Judge Issues Restraining Order Against Trump Campaign Voter Intimidation

Written by SK Ashby

A federal judge has issued a restraining order against the Trump campaign and his longtime adviser Roger Stone ordering them to cancel their plans to harass voters.

U.S. District Judge James Gwin did not specify exactly what will or will not be allowed but said the order would likely be generic and prohibit both Democrats and Republicans from any harassment of people entering and leaving polling places.

"It wouldn't be any attempt to particularly identify as somebody being a Trump supporter or not," Gwin said.

While the judge's order will not be explicitly directed at one group, it's obvious that only one campaign has talked about sending teams of people to monitor polling precints.

Judge Gwin's order is a response to a lawsuit filed by Democratic party officials against the state GOP.
