I speak to Democrats of all ages and the one thing I hear repeatedly is that the way Donald Trump has been allowed to make a mockery of the criminal justice system has lowered their confidence in the system.  That is both alarming and dangerous for our Republic.

And now we are seeing another glaring example as Trump appears to be “directing” his MAGA GOP allies to stand outside the courthouse to say things Trump is s not permitted to by way of Judge Merchan’s March 26, 2024, court order.  As Merchan wrote in that order, Trump was barred from “making or directing others to make public statements” about trial witnesses and jurors. That order was expanded a week later to include attacks on the judge’s family after Trump repeatedly smear the judge’s daughter with lies.

This was not about curtailing Trump’s ability to speak because the Judge was personally upset with the attacks on his daughter. The sole reason for the gag order was Trump’s remarks were “a threat to the integrity of the judicial proceedings.” As the judge noted, Trump’s barbs against witnesses, jurors etc., “interfere with the fair administration of justice and constitutes a direct attack on the Rule of Law itself.”
