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

A gag order has been imposed by New York Judge Juan Merchan on former President Donald Trump before his Manhattan criminal hush-money trial next month. The order was issued in response to a motion by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, who sought to prevent Trump from publicly discussing jurors and witnesses involved in the investigation.

Trump has faced a gag order from a judge before, during his New York civil fraud trial. In that case, the previous judge imposed a similar order after Trump attacked the judge’s principal clerk. This 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.

Legal experts believe that Judge Merchan is prepared to enforce the gag order if Trump violates it, especially once a jury is in place for the trial. Former U.S. Attorney Harry Litman commented on Twitter that Judge Merchan is very focused on the upcoming trial of voter deception and has imposed a significant gag order on Trump. Litman praised the judge for being ready to enforce the order if Trump disregards it, especially once a jury is selected.
