Trump Hit With Major Setback

A New York court has dismissed former President Trump’s attempt to overturn his gag order related to his recent hush money case conviction.


This represents yet another setback for Trump’s legal team, which has been striving to remove the gag order that prevents him from discussing witnesses, prosecutors, court personnel, jurors, and their families.

Recent Developments

On Tuesday, the New York Court of Appeals rejected Trump’s appeal, citing that it lacked a substantial constitutional issue. This decision is detailed in the court’s recently published list.

Current Situation

Trump has been outspoken against the gag order, and his lawyers have made multiple unsuccessful attempts to have it rescinded. After Trump was convicted on 34 felony counts in the New York case, his attorneys contended that the gag order was no longer necessary. However, the Manhattan District Attorney’s office argued that maintaining the order was crucial to prevent threats to the trial’s fairness and to safeguard the integrity of the judicial process.

Upcoming Events

Trump’s sentencing hearing is scheduled for July 11, just four days prior to the start of the Republican National Convention.
