Trump found guilty of violating gag order in “hush money” trial and faces repercussions. Here’s the fine he has to pay.

The judge presiding over former President Donald Trump’s New York trial found him in contempt of court for violating a gag order by making posts targeting key witnesses on social media. Judge Juan Merchan fined Trump $9,000 for nine violations and warned of potential jail time for future infractions. Merchan’s gag order prohibited Trump from commenting on witnesses, jurors, court staff, and his family members. Prosecutors argued for the contempt charge, citing multiple violations. Trump’s lawyer claimed he was responding to political attacks, but the judge criticized his lack of credibility. Trump faces charges related to a payment to Stormy Daniels and protests the gag order as unconstitutional.
