Giuliani to Newsmax: Gag Order Lawsuit ‘Un-American’

Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani told Newsmax on Monday the new federal lawsuit seeking a permanent gag order against him is “un-American.”

Giuliani joined “Rob Schmitt Tonight” to talk about the second lawsuit brought against him by Ruby Freeman and Shaye Moss, days after they won a $148 million defamation lawsuit against him.

“That sounds kind of un-American, doesn’t it? That’s prior restraint,” Giuliani said.

The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., on Monday, seeks to “permanently bar” Giuliani from “persisting in his defamatory campaign against the plaintiffs.”

“Are they actually gonna put a gag on me when I walk around?” Giuliani said. “There’s no relationship, to my learning in law school, about the First Amendment, the right of free speech. Even the idea that when you’re a public person, these people were public officials, you have a certain range in which you can have opinion and discussion.”
