Trump’s ‘surrogates’ target witnesses and the judge’s daughter. Could their actions put him in jail?

R/I ~ AA

One after the other, in press conferences steps outside a Manhattan courthouse, Donald Trump’s allies have repeated familiar attacks against the daughter of the judge presiding over the criminal case against the former president.

They fired off similar attacks about star witness Michael Cohen, who was testifying in a courtroom 15 floors above them.

Prosecutors are moments away from closing their case, and the judge is eager for the trial to keep moving along without any further interruptions.

But an avalanche of recent attacks seemingly directed by Mr Trump to his lackeys – which include the country’s highest-ranking Republican – could be grounds for severe sanctions against him.

protective order blocks Mr Trump from “making or directing others to make public statements” about trial witnesses and potential witnesses, jurors and prospective jurors, attorneys, court staff and their families.
