( – A new CNN report has shown that additional security was given to Tanya Chutkan, the U.S. District Court Judge that will be presiding over the latest federal criminal case filed against former President Donald Trump relating to his attempts to overturn the 2020 presidential election.

Increased security has been placed in the courtroom where the case is going to be heard, as well as around Washington, D.C.

Federal prosecutors have so far requested that Chutkan grant them a “protective order” that would block Trump and his legal team from sharing any of the evidence that they will be given access to during the discovery process in this case. However, Trump and his team have an entirely different request as they have asked for Chutkan to recuse herself from the case.

In a post on Truth Social, Trump argued that there was no way for him to have a fair trial when Chutkan was presiding over his case. Trump was indicted on four counts relating to his attempts to remain in the White House after the 2020 presidential election.

To prove the need for the “protective order” prosecutors have used Trump’s social media account as evidence. In one of his posts, he specifically stated that he would be going after anyone who went after him. This is why prosecutors have argued that Trump could potentially threaten the witnesses in this case.

Trump’s legal team is asking for fewer restrictions, arguing that the ones prosecutors have requested would be too restrictive of Trump’s First Amendment rights.
