On Tuesday, Judge Juan Merchan will issue an order prohibiting Trump from publicly revealing any details about the Stormy Daniels “hush payment” case.
Trump will make a video appearance in a New York court, where Judge Merchan is expected to personally deliver the gag order to the former president.
Earlier this month, the judge issued a gag order on President Trump, preventing him from posting anything about the Stormy Daniels “hush payment” case on his social media accounts.
The judge also prohibited Trump from accessing any evidence in the Stormy Daniels case unless his attorneys are present.
Trump got hit with 34 criminal charges in March, including allegations of falsifying business records and conspiracy.
He was also taken into custody before his arraignment, following an indictment by a Manhattan grand jury on junk charges connected to the “hush payments” made to porn star Stormy Daniels and Playboy centerfold Karen McDougal.
Juan Merchan, a left-leaning New York Supreme Court judge who has previously made donations to Joe Biden, warned Trump of a potential gag order back in April.
Now on Tuesday, the same judge will order Trump not to publicly disclose any details about the Stormy Daniels case.
As reported by Reuters:
Donald Trump will appear in a New York courtroom by video on Tuesday, where a judge is expected to make clear to him that he cannot publicly disclose certain evidence in the criminal case against him over hush money paid to a porn star.
Justice Juan Merchan in Manhattan state court agreed to let the former U.S. president appear remotely, avoiding a repeat of the heavy security required on April 4 when Trump was arraigned and pleaded not guilty in person.
Prosecutors and Trump’s lawyers will appear in Merchan’s courtroom.
The restrictions on Trump concern grand jury minutes, witness statements, and other materials that prosecutors are required to turn over to the defense to prepare for trial.
