Jeffrey Toobin, a legal analyst, highlighted on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360” that former President Donald Trump’s recent social media activity potentially breaches the gag order in his ongoing hush money criminal case.

The gag order, which aims to prevent influencing jurors and other parties involved in the case, was specifically expanded to curb Trump’s public commentary after he targeted the daughter of the New York judge overseeing his trial.

Trump’s contentious post relayed accusations from Fox News host Jesse Watters, claiming, “They are catching undercover Liberal Activists lying to the Judge in order to get on the Trump Jury.”

Toobin pointed out that not only is the claim likely false, but it also represents a clear attempt to intimidate jurors, thus violating the conditions of the gag order. He emphasized the severity of Trump’s actions, noting that criminal defendants, particularly those under a gag order, do not have the liberty to engage in such conduct.

The former president, who faces 34 criminal counts related to falsifying business records, has challenged the gag order, arguing it infringes on his free speech rights despite his presidential campaign and defense efforts.

Despite this, the prosecutors have requested a $3,000 fine against Trump for other social media posts that purportedly attack witnesses, highlighting ongoing concerns about his adherence to court restrictions.

With the trial set to continue, the judge has scheduled a hearing to address these issues further, indicating the potential legal ramifications of Trump’s actions on the integrity of the court proceedings.

The trial’s outcome and adherence to judicial protocol are of critical importance, given the historic nature of this case involving a former president.
