'Ridiculous and Unconstitutional': Trump gag order temporarily lifted

Former President Donald Trump blasted a gag order against him in his New York fraud case after an appeals court stayed the order.

Trump took to Truth Social to speak out against the gag order as "unconstitutional."

The decision

"Judge David Friedman of New York’s intermediate appeals court issued a stay on the gag order while a longer appeals process continues," the Post Millennial wrote.

"The gag order prevented Trump from speaking out against Allison Greenfield, the law clerk of Judge Arthur Engoron who is presiding over the non jury trial case," it continued.

The background

"Engoron later fined Trump $15,000 for violating the gag order and expanded it to include his lawyers after they questioned clerk Allison Greenfield’s prominent role on the bench, where she sits alongside the judge, exchanging notes and advising him during testimony. Friedman’s ruling allows the lawyers to again comment about court staff, as well," the Associated Press reported.

"At an emergency hearing Thursday, Friedman questioned Engoron’s authority to police what Trump says outside the courtroom," it noted.

Trump's response

"Judge Arthur Engoron has just been overturned (stayed!) by the New York State Appellate Division (Appeals Court), for the 4th TIME (on the same case!)," Trump wrote.

"His Ridiculous and Unconstitutional Gag Order, not allowing me to defend myself against him and his politically biased and out of control, Trump Hating Clerk, who is sinking him and his Court to new levels of LOW, is a disgrace. They are defending the Worst and Least Respected Attorney General in the United States, Letitia James, who is a Worldwide disgrace, as is her illegal Witch Hunt against me," he added.

Trump has faced both gag orders and ongoing trials in multiple cases in recent months.

He continues to battle cases in Florida, Washington and Georgia in addition to his current New York fraud case targeting his business that could include fines of up to $250 million.

The legal issues have not led to problems with his campaign yet, however, as Trump continues to hold a large lead over his fellow GOP candidates.
