Donald Trump Forces Judge to Issue Gag Order Over Now-Deleted Post


Donald Trump was hit with a gag on order in his civil trial after making a personal attack against a court clerk.

Trump’s Trial

The former president faces a $250 million civil fraud trial in New York following a long-term investigation by New York Attorney General Letitia James.  This case stems from James’ lawsuit accusing the former president, his sons Eric and Donald Trump Jr. and the Trump Organization of filing fraudulent financial statements that inflated the value of several properties and assets by billions of dollars for financial perks.  

Judge’s Ruling

Last week, Judge Arthur Engoron ruled that the information was sufficient and said Trump’s behavior constituted fraud.  

Trump’s Response To Legal Problems

Trump has denied any wrongdoing and has repeatedly insisted he is innocent of all crimes he is accused of. He has gone as far as to suggest his recent legal troubles are part of a political witch hunt.  Speaking on social media, he has also launched attacks on political figures, attorneys and judges.

In another attack that has since been deleted, Trump took to Truth Social to criticize Engoron’s clerk, attorney Allison Greenfield.  The former president shared a photo of Greenfield where she appeared with Democratic Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer.  Trump insisted this was grounds for the case to be dismissed and, without evidence, suggested the two were romantically involved.  

“How Disgraceful”, Trump said of Greenfield In The Deleted Post

“Schumer’s girlfriend, Alison R. Greenfield, is running this case against me. How disgraceful! This case should be dismissed immediately, “Trump wrote on Tuesday as the trial was ongoing.  

Judge’s Response to Truth Social Post

Judge Engoron followed up by issuing a gag order for both Trump and his legal team. This order bars them from publicly discussing members of his staff.  He also warned that a violation of this order would result in “swift and meaningful sanctions”. However, the judge did not explain what these sanctions would be.  

What The Judge Said

“This morning one of the defendants posted to his social media account a disparaging, untrue and personally identifying post about a member of my staff,” Engoron said. “Personal attacks on members of my court staff are unacceptable and inappropriate, and I won’t tolerate it,”  “Consider this statement a gag order forbidding all parties from posting emailing or speaking publicly about any of my staff.”  

Judge’s Warning

Engoron also said he had previously warned Trump “off the record” on Monday about making such comments.   After Trump made the post, Engoron ordered him to delete the post and it was quickly removed from Trump’s Truth Social Page.

During his ongoing legal difficulties, Trump has regularly taken to social media to vent and criticize attorneys, political figures and judges.  

Ongoing Truth Social Posts

Trump has continued to defend himself on social media and continued to attack Letitia James, as she is not considered a member of the judge’s staff.  The judge found that Trump had also inflated the value of his Mar-a-Lago club in Florida by at least 2,300%. Trump’s latest Truth Social Posts have argued against this and he has insisted the estate is worth over a billion dollars.  

“Judge Engoron given misleading information,” Says Trump

Judge Engoron has been given false and grossly misleading information about my Net Worth by a lying and incompetent Attorney General, “Trump wrote on Truth Social on day 2 of his civil trial “Such as Mar-a-Lago being worth $18,000,000 when in fact the number would be much closer to 1.5 Billion Dollars, like other properties, including two that were recently sold for numbers many times those that were listed in the Financial Statements,”  

“The Case Should Be Dismissed,” Trump Says

“The N.Y.S. Attorney General, therefore, committed FRAUD for Political and Election Interference reasons. This case should therefore be dismissed!”  

Letitia James’ Lawsuit

In another post attacking James, Trump took issue with the civil suit she filed, under Executive Law Section 63 (12).  

“It’s So Unfair,” Trump Complained on Truth Social

“It is so unfair that I am being tried under Section 63 (12), which is unconstitutionally being used to punish me because I am substantially leading Crooked Joe Bide in the polls,” Trump posted.

“It is a Consumer Protection Statute, and not meant, at all, for election interference purposes, which is what this is all about. “Under this Section of the law, I am not even entitled to a jury (there is no checking of a box alternative). This was done by Radical Left Marxists design, and is not the America we know. Make America Great Again.”
