Judge in hush money case expands disgraced former president’s limited gag order

Source: ABC News

“The judge in Donald Trump’s criminal hush money case has expanded his limited gag order on the former president to cover the family members of the judge and the district attorney, following a request by prosecutors. The limited gag order now covers the family members of District Attorney Alvin Bragg and Judge Juan Merchan, after Trump targeted Merchan’s daughter repeatedly on social media over her work with a group involved in Democratic politics. Last week, Judge Merchan issued a limited gag order prohibiting Trump from making comments about potential witnesses in the case, as well as jurors, lawyers, court staff, and their families. The order permitted Trump to continue making public comments about both Merchan and Bragg.” (04/02/24)
