Rep. Elise Stefanik criticized a New York judge’s gag order on former President Donald Trump, calling it unconstitutional and illegal.
The judge prohibited Trump’s legal team from discussing confidential communications with staff and threatened serious sanctions for any violations.
Stefanik accused the judge of being a “Far Left Judge” working on behalf of Democrats and raised concerns about the judge’s biased law clerk. (Trending: Is It Time For Joe Biden To Drop Out Of 2024?)

She argued that Democrats are establishing a dangerous pattern of silencing defendants and called on Republicans to fight back against the weaponization of government.
“It’s unconstitutional and illegal to put a GAG order on President Trump and his legal team. The Far Left Judge’s clerk is a major Democrat donor and operative who has apparently donated more than the yearly limit for a New York Judge’s staff member,” Stefanik said.
“It is illegal and un-American for the Leftist Judge in NY to order that President Trump and his legal team can’t raise issues about the Judge’s biased law clerk — especially when it is very obvious that she is playing an integral role in this case.”
“This is a dangerous pattern by Democrats across the country to try to muzzle any defendant — let alone the leading Presidential candidate who is leading in all the polls against corrupt Joe Biden.”
“Republicans must join together to fight back against the unprecedented and illegal weaponization of Government against President Trump. I will do everything in my power as the Republican House Conference Chair to stop this madness,” she concluded.
