Former President Trump has been fined $10,000 for violating a gag order in his civil fraud trial in New York. Trump was sworn in as a witness to respond to allegations that he violated the gag order by commenting about a court secretary. During his testimony, Trump confirmed making comments about Judge Arthur Engoron being a “very partisan judge” and suggested the judge’s clerk was biased against him. The gag order was initially imposed after Trump’s social media account targeted the clerk with personal information. Trump was fined an additional $5,000 for keeping the post on his campaign website. The judge found Trump not credible and rejected objections to the fine from his attorneys.
