On Thursday, an appeals court voted to reinstate the gage order against Trump in the ongoing New York business fraud trial.

Judge Arthur Engoron imposed the gag order in October after Trump repeatedly targeted the judge and his staff in a series of online attacks, most closely focusing on his principal law clerk. (RELATED: Judge Issues Gag Order Following Trump’s Truth Social Posts)

The judge issued the gag order barring Trump and any party in the case from posting or speaking publicly about members of his staff after Trump released personally identifying information about his principal clerk

The trial judge, without naming Trump, addressed the court on the matter, saying “one of the defendants” posted a “disparaging, untrue and personally-identifying post” about his staff, and though the judge ordered it deleted, it had been emailed out to “millions of other recipients.”

“Personal attacks on members of my court staff are not appropriate and I will not tolerate it under any circumstance,” Engoron said.

Trump and his lawyers claim the clerk acts as a “co-judge” in the case and have criticized her for passing notes and whispering with the judge during the trial. 

The Hill reports that an appeals panel denied Trump’s request to lift the order hampering his attacks on the clerk. Trump’s counsel argued in their request to eliminate the gag order that Judge Arthur Engoron’s enforcement of it “casts serious doubt” on his ability to serve as an “impartial finder of fact” overseeing Trump’s case.

  1. The only ‘surprise’ is that the ‘judge’ hasn’t extended that gag order to any/all DJT supporters. Oh wait, they are now seizing all electronic communications from those supporters so perhaps that is their next step.

  2. Anyone who believes Judge Arthur Engoron is impartial is obviously not paying attention. This judge is just enjoying having his name and face plastered all over the news and internet. He is about as impartial as Biden, Obama or Pelosi.

  3. So what? This judge is as biased as they come. This so called trial is a joke. Trump will prevail as he always does & will win the presidency in less than one year putting the Biden crime family out on their rumps. They should be in jail.

  4. god created his globalists and all his globalist puppets to create hell on earth for all good people and god and his globalists and all his globalist puppets know they have no chance in hell of winning a fair election; soros, biden crime family, zelensky crime family, clinton crime family, demonrat criminal party, rino criminal party, criminal media, altar boy raping demonrat priests and all gods CRIMINAL organizations; doj, fbi, cdc, irs, usps, atf, ss, cia, hud, fema, fisa, tsa, fcc, fda, un, nato etc .
