Former President Donald Trump was slapped with a fresh gag order in his Manhattan hush-money case.

Judge Juan Merchan, who is overseeing the case, issued the gag order on the former president. According to Breitbart News, the order, which came from the New York State Supreme Court for New York County, bars the former president from speaking publicly about witnesses and counsel involved in the case.

The order also bars the former president from making public comments about the court’s staff and district attorney. Family members of both court staff and Bragg’s staff are also off-limit for the former president. Trump is also not allowed to speak publicly about any prospective juror or any juror related to the trial.

The former president is, however, allowed to mention Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg in public statements.

Judge Merchan’s order comes after the former president directly criticized him in a Truth Social, pointing out that Merchant’s daughter indirectly works for Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA).

“Judge Juan Merchan, a very distinguished looking man, is nevertheless a true and certified Trump Hater who suffers from a very serious case of Trump Derangement Syndrome,” Trump wrote in the post. “In other words, he hates me! His daughter is a senior executive at a Super Liberal Democrat firm that works for Adam “Shifty” Schiff, the Democrat National Committee, (Dem)Senate Majority PAC, and even Crooked Joe Biden.”

Former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy on Monday raised concern over Merchan’s handling of the trial. McCarthy, in an interview on America’s Newsroom, said he believes Trump will likely get convicted.

“It’s a terrible case but it is going to go forward,” McCarthy told Hemmer. “I think there is a high probability Trump could get convicted because what has happened here is Alvin Bragg has taken one transaction, which years ago, if you brought it at all, should have been a misdemeanor falsification of business records in which there are no victims, nobody got harmed by this, the state wasn’t deprived of any tax revenue. He has carved it up into 34 acts he labeled as felonies that could put Trump behind bars for over a… century.”
