New York City Supreme Court Judge Arthur Engoron, the judge recently applauded by previous President Donald J. Trump for apparently tossing out what Trump called “eighty percent” of the case against him, has actually issued a gag order versus Trump after the 45th President blasted Engoron’s law clerk in public remarks to the press and on social networks.
According to CNBC, Engoron told the Trump legal team on the 2nd day of the continuous scams trial, “Consider this declaration a gag order on all parties with regard to publishing or publicly speaking about any member of my staff.”

Politico legal press reporter Erica Orden reported that Engoron included,
“Individual attacks on members of my court staff are inappropriate, unsuitable and I will not endure them in any circumstances,” he continued “Failure to abide by this order will lead to serious sanctions.”
The Judge disagreed in particular with a post by Trump to Fact Social that was crucial of Engoron’s primary law clerk Ashley Greenfield, sharing a picture of her with Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY).
He composed in a now-deleted post, “Schumer’s girlfriend, Alison R. Greenfield, is running this case versus me. How disgraceful! This case ought to be dismissed instantly,” according to Law and Criminal activity.
Outside the courthouse, Trump called attention to the post, telling the collected press reporters that the connection in between Schumer and Greenfield proved the trial to be a”
witch hunt.””You saw what was just put out about Schumer and the principal clerk. That is disgraceful,” he informed the press, adding that the trial is “rigged” and “fraudulent.”

CNBC reported that the Trump campaign later on sent out an e-mail slamming Engoron at length as a “Far-Left Democrat,” sharing a list of news outlets reporting on the Judge’s comprehensive Democrat connections and political bias. Trump added that New York Attorney General Letitia James whom he has greatly slammed for her blatantly political prosecution of his family “must most likely be dismissed also.”
In a Tuesday early morning post to Fact Social, he composed,
“Now that it has actually been agreed in Court that Mar-a-Lago deserves 50 to 100 times the Worth the Racist & Incompetent Attorney General Of The United States of New York City State, Letitia “Peekaboo” James, credited it (18 Million Dollars), & similarly other possessions that were valued crazily low by this “Monster” that has actually permitted Violent Criminal activity in New York to reach upsurge levels, and unsafe illegal migrants to stroll complimentary all over our State, we hope the Judge will end his first judgment of fraud because he was given incorrect and outrageous info by the Trump Deranged Lunatic, A.G. James. In truth, I deserve FAR MORE than the numbers put down on the Financial Statements, not less. In addition, there is a far reaching and professionally drawn Disclaimer Provision boldly specified on the FIRST PAGE OF THE FILE. This entire case must be thrown away and dismissed. The A.G. should be reprimanded and approved for bringing this case with its FAKE LOW WORTHS, in order to make me look bad. Election Disturbance!”
Dealing with Engoron directly, he included a subsequent post, “Judge Engoron has been given false and grossly deceptive info about my Net Worth by a lying and incompetent Attorney General, such as Mar-a-Lago being worth $18,000,000 when in fact the number would be much closer to 1.5 Billion Dollars, like other homes, including two that were just recently cost numbers lot of times those that were noted in the Financial Statements. The N.Y.S. Attorney general of the United States, therefore, dedicated FRAUD for Political and Election Disturbance reasons. This case ought to for that reason be dismissed!”
As previously reported by Trending Politics, Trump informed reporters Monday, “The violent criminal offense that’s being devoted in our city and our state is disgraceful, and we’re going to be here for months. With a judge that already made up his mind, it’s absurd. He’s a Democrat judge, he’s an operative, and it’s outrageous.”
As of this writing, Sen. Schumer has made no public remark concerning his relationship, if any, with Allison Greenfield.
