Trump Gags on His Own Bile: Challenges Judge’s Order to Shut Up with New Attack on NY AG Letitia James


Donald Trump was ordered to zip his lip yesterday by Judge Arthur Engoron in court.

I knew he wouldn’t last a day. He just attempted to violate his court ordered gag by attacking NY Attorney General Letitia James on his Truth Social.

He still doesn’t understand why there is no jury in this trial. He must, but he’s pushing the lie for his illiterate followers. The reason there’s no jury: his lawyer didn’t ask for one. It’s that simple.

“Just arrived at the Witch Hunt Trial taking place in the very badly failing (so sadly!) State of New York, where people and companies are fleeing by the thousands. Corrupt Attorney General, Letitia James, is a big reason for this. Statute 63(12) is meant to be used for Consumer Fraud. It has never been used before on a “case” such as this, especially since I did absolutely nothing wrong. I borrowed money, paid it back, in full, and got sued, years later, with a trial RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF MY CAMPAIGN. I am not even entitled, under any circumstances, to a JURY. This Witch Hunt cannot be allowed to continue. It is Election Interference and the start of Communism right here in America!”

How long before the judge puts him in the slammer for 30 days?
