New York Judge Grants DA Alvin Bragg’s Request for a Gag Order against Trump

Radical New York Judge Juan Merchan has just sided with Alvin Bragg by approving the Democrat Manhattan district attorney’s request to impose a gag order on President Donald Trump.

Bragg, who is funded by radical billionaire George Soros, demanded Trump be silenced with a gag order in the “hush-money” payments case.

Merchan issued the order against the 2024 GOP presumptive presidential nominee on Tuesday.

The judge, who has a history of donating to Democrats – including President Joe Biden -, pointed to Trump’s so-called “prior extrajudicial statements.”

He argues that Trump’s statements establish “a sufficient risk to the administration of justice.”

Merchan ordered that Trump cannot make or direct others to make public statements about witnesses concerning their potential participation, or about counsel in the case — other than Bragg — or about court staff, DA staff, or family members of staff.

The Democrat judge also ordered that Trump cannot make or direct others to make public statements about any prospective juror or chosen juror.

Merchan said in his decision that Trump has made statements in the past during other trials.

He was likely referring to the months-long non-jury civil “fraud” trial stemming from the get-Trump case brought by New York’s career Democrat Attorney General Letitia James.

In his ruling, Merchan writes:

“Indeed, his statements were threatening, inflammatory, denigrating, and the targets of his statements ranged from local and federal officials, court and court state prosecutors and staff assigned to the cases, and private individuals including grand jurors performing their civic duty.

“The consequences of those statements included not only fear on the part of the individual targeted but also the assignment of increased security resources to investigate threats and protect the individuals and family members thereof.”

Merchan announced on Monday that the trial will begin on April 15.

Bragg indicted Trump on 34 counts of falsifying business records in the first degree.

Trump pleaded not guilty to all charges.

Bragg alleged that Trump “repeatedly and fraudulently falsified New York business records to conceal criminal conduct that hid damaging information from the voting public during the 2016 presidential election.”

The charges are related to alleged hush-money payments made during the 2016 presidential campaign.

In 2019, federal prosecutors in the Southern District of New York opted not to charge Trump related to the alleged payments made to adult film actress Stormy Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal.

The Federal Election Commission (FEC) also tossed its investigation into the matter in 2021.
