Prosecutors accuse Trump of intimidating witnesses in hush-money trial

New York prosecutors has accused Donald Trump of trying to intimidate potential witnesses in his upcoming hush-money trial by criticizing family members involved in the case.

Prosecutors filed a court motion urging Justice Juan Merchan to extend his existing gag order to include Trump’s remarks about family members, citing a recent social media post where Trump targeted Merchan’s daughter.

In the post, Trump referred to Merchan’s daughter as a “Rabid Trump Hater” and called for Merchan to be removed from the case, prompting concerns about instigating fear and harm to loved ones of those involved.

Merchan’s daughter runs a digital marketing agency that works with Democratic candidates and non-profits, leading Trump’s lawyers to argue a conflict of interest and attempt to remove Merchan from the case.

Trump’s defense maintains that his posts did not violate the gag order and were not intended to interfere with the trial or cause harm.
