Trump Fined $10,000 for Violating Gag Order Again

Former President Trump has been fined $10,000 for violating a gag order that prevented him from speaking about those overseeing his civil fraud trial in New York.

In an unexpected twist, Trump was sworn in as a witness to respond to allegations he violated the gag order against him in his fraud case by commenting about a court secretary.

Trump slowly ascended the stand, straightening his blue jacket when sitting down. He took an oath to tell the truth and turned his attention toward the judge.

Judge Arthur Engoron asked whether Trump made the reported comment that he is a “very partisan judge with a person who is very partisan sitting alongside him, perhaps even more partisan than he is.” Trump nodded, responding “yes.”

“To whom were you referring?” Engoron asked.

“You and Cohen,” Trump replied.

“Are you sure that you didn’t mean the person on the other side, my principal law clerk?” Engoron asked.

“Yes I’m sure,” Trump said.

The former president, when prompted, additionally commented that he believes the judge’s clerk is “very biased against us” and explained that he took down the previous Truth Social post that sparked the gag order.

The gag order was originally imposed after Trump’s Truth Social account derided the clerk as Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer’s (D-N.Y.) “girlfriend” and included personally identifying information about her. Engoron ordered Trump to take down the post, and it was removed from Truth Social.

However, the post remained on Trump’s campaign website for an additional 17 days. When Engoron was informed of that, he imposed a $5,000 fine on Trump for violating the order.

Trump said on the stand that he believes “one of the political groups, or PACS” left it up.

“But I didn’t know they were gonna do that,” Trump said.

Through his short testimony, Trump maintained a glum face. When he trailed back to his seat, he looked at the floor.

Once Trump was seated, Engoron issued his order to fine Trump $10,000 “on the liberal side.”

“As the trier of fact, I find that the witness is not credible,” Engoron said.

Trump attorney Chris Kise objected to the order, suggesting the judge “presupposed some ill motive” on Trump’s behalf.

Kise and Trump’s other attorneys also claimed that the closeness of Engoron’s clerk to him has essentially made her a “second judge” in the case. The attorneys previously raised issue with Engoron and his clerk’s whispered sidebars, which sometimes include eye-rolling or sighs of exasperation.

Engoron rejected their objections and their assertions about his clerk’s role in his decision-making.

“I make the final decisions,” Engoron said.

    It’s a damn shame we have Judges and lawyers in this country, who do not understand the ramifications of an illegal Gag order, against a former Potus, and now a Standing Citizen who has tossed his hat in for Potus election in 2024. It’s pure election interference, and political persecution, to stifle an opponent, and financially degrade them in public view. Smear campaigns with ties to Big Corp, THE DOJ, and the likes of fraudulent influencers such as, Hillary Clinton , Nancy Pelosi, Barrack Obama and the Mainstream Media should be held accountable by the public. Our FBI has no concern to capture these people, and hold their feet to the fire. Only a well maintained Militia will ever stop the Treason , and humiliations of millions of Americans. Its plain to see our own armed forces is involved, especially while they do this in clear View. Our entirety of Government is in complete Chaos against humanity.These are facts I tell you. WYKYK.

    Pretty Bad Truth Press into comment extraction too. Fk U Truth Press. I know how to uninstall you just like TIK TOK, Fake book Meta, CF, FOX, CNN, AND MAIN STREAM MEDIA LOSERS. SPIT REAL TRUTH and it upsets their reptilian skin features.

  • Sam says:

    This “judge” is a walking invitation to an appeal. His “closeness” with the clerk is grounds for an ethics review. His conduct is clear evidence of bias. A verdict he renders against Trump will be over turned on appeal.
