Trump's Hush Money Trial Gag Order Left In Place By New York's Highest Court

E-mail Print PDF

Trump gag order upheldNew York state’s highest court declined to take up an appeal regarding former President Donald Trump’s hush money trial gag order, leaving it in place for now.

Judge Juan Merchan handed down the gag order earlier this year to prevent Trump from attacking witnesses, attorneys and others involved in his criminal trial, actions that could amount to an effort to influence the proceedings.

A jury of 12 Manhattanites found the former president guilty on all 34 counts of falsifying business records in the first degree on May 30.

Trump is expected to appear for a sentencing hearing July 11 — just a few days before he is expected to accept the Republican Party’s presidential nomination at the Republican National Convention.

He could potentially be imprisoned or put on probation.
