    Appeals Court Slams Trump: Gag Order Decision Leaves Everyone Stunned!

    The New York Court of Appeals announced on Tuesday that it would not hear former President Donald Trump’s appeal of the gag order in the hush money case, for which he was found guilty last month.

    The top court in the state said the appeal was not valid because there was “no substantial constitutional question directly involved.”

    That means Trump is still under the gag order that was put in place by state judge Juan Merchan. The order says Trump can’t attack witnesses, prosecutors, jurors, court workers, and their families, as well as the families of the judge and Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, according to NBC News.

    Trump said the order raised “constitutional questions of the highest order.”

    Trump’s lawyers said the order limits his “core political speech on matters of central importance at the height of his presidential campaign, where he is the leading candidate, and thus it violates the fundamental right of every American voter to hear” his thoughts “on matters of enormous public importance.” His lawyers said it was “constitutionally important” for him to be able to talk about two important witnesses in the case: his former lawyer Michael Cohen and adult film star Stormy Daniels.
