Former Prosecutor: New York Judge Demonstrates Sternness by Imposing Gag Order on Trump.

In a significant move, former President Donald Trump has been hit with a gag order by Manhattan Judge Juan Merchan ahead of his upcoming criminal hush-money trial next month. The order was imposed in response to a motion by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, who is seeking to prevent Trump from publicly discussing jurors and witnesses involved in the investigation.

This isn’t the first time that Trump has faced a gag order from a judge. In fact, he had previously received a similar order during his New York civil fraud trial after attacking the judge’s principal clerk. Despite this, the latest gag order was issued on the same day that Trump criticized the judge and his daughter on Truth Social, despite the D.A.’s motion being filed weeks earlier. However, Judge Merchan reprimanded Trump’s lawyers for their allegations of prosecutorial misconduct and scheduled the trial for April 15.

Legal experts believe that Judge Merchan is taking this matter seriously and is prepared to enforce the gag order if Trump violates it, especially once a jury is in place for the trial. In fact, former U.S. Attorney Harry Litman commended Judge Merchan on Twitter for being focused on ensuring that voter deception is prosecuted fairly and impartially. He also praised the judge for his readiness to enforce the gag order if necessary.

Overall, this development marks an important milestone in President Trump’s ongoing legal battles in New York City and beyond. It remains to be seen how he will respond to this latest setback and whether he will respect Judge Merchan’s orders or continue to make inflammatory statements about those involved in the investigation.
