Judge to Consider Fines for Trump Violating Gag Order

A hearing is scheduled today to determine whether former President Donald Trump will be fined for breaching a gag order. The order prohibits him from discussing witnesses or jurors in the hush money case. Prosecutors claim that Trump repeatedly violated the order by posting on social media about his former lawyer, Michael Cohen, as well as the jury in his case. They request a $1,000 fine per violation, accompanied by a reminder that future violations could result in additional fines or up to thirty days of incarceration. Trump has expressed frustration at being unable to respond to Cohen’s posts.
