Benjamin B. Klubes was quoted on July 23, 2018 in a Washington Times article, “Trump gag order sought by attorneys for ex-Senate staffer James Wolfe,” which discussed the filing by Buckley Sandler for a gag order on the president. The article stated, “Comments by President Trump have robbed James Wolfe of a fair trial, attorneys for the former Senate staffer said in court filings late Monday. Mr. Wolfe’s attorneys have requested a federal judge in Washington, D.C. impose a gag order on the president, barring him from talking about the case in the future. They say it is imperative to stop Mr. Trump from talking about the case because in comments last month he accused Mr. Wolfe of leaking classified documents, a crime for which he has not been charged.”

Klubes noted, “The President, having proclaimed Mr. Wolfe to be guilty, compounded the prejudice by suggesting that he was guilty of leaking classified information, a far more serious crime that he is not facing. There is no reason to believe that absent an order from this Court, President Trump will refrain from again opining on Mr. Wolfe’s guilt as this case proceeds.”
