Judge Places Gag Order on Trump After He Posts Attack on Law Clerk During Civil Fraud Trial

HeadlineOct 04, 2023

Here in New York, the judge overseeing Donald Trump’s civil fraud trial imposed a gag order on the former president Tuesday, after Trump posted a photo of the judge’s law clerk with Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, falsely claiming she was Schumer’s “girlfriend.” Trump also wrote that the case against him should be dismissed. Judge Arthur Engoron barred Trump from posting, sending emails or making public remarks about members of the judge’s staff.

Meanwhile, in Georgia, Fulton County prosecutors have reportedly reached plea deals with at least half of the “fake electors” for their cooperation in the wide-ranging racketeering case around Trump’s efforts to overturn the result of the 2020 election.
