Former President Donald Trump has demanded that District Court Judge Tanya Chutkan be removed from his federal indictment case after she ruled against him. The judge had issued a protective order limiting what discovery evidence Trump and his legal team can share publicly, citing Trump’s prolific use of social media and previous public statements about witnesses and others involved in legal matters. Trump responded with a post on Truth Social, threatening to go after those pursuing him and claiming he cannot get a fair trial with the current judge. The protective order aims to prevent improper dissemination of discovery materials and protect the case’s integrity. Trump’s attorneys have used the First Amendment as a defense, arguing his statements on election fraud were political speech, but the indictment accuses him of unlawfully trying to change election results in his favor.
Donovan was born and raised in the deep south of South Central Georgia, roughly two hours from the Georgia-Florida line. His father was a guitar player, farmer, and eventually blue color worker for GM. His mother suffered from Scleroderma starting a few years after he was born, so she became a home maker. Growing up as an only child, Donovan’s interest included music (though he really never learned to play anything) and anything dealing with technology, but specifically computers.
He has spent his entire life involved with computer technology either as a hobby or as a career. In his middle to late teens, he ran a BBS (electronic bulletin board system – the precursor to the modern day Internet). He learned about networking computer systems, building computers, and communication technologies as part of his career.
Later in life, he fulfilled his dream of running his own ISP (Internet Service Provider) when he was hired first as the Network Manager and eventually the General Manager of the Telecommunications Department for the City of Tifton, known as CityNet.
Today he runs his own IT business and has been podcasting in some form or fashion since 2011.
