‘Not Allowed To Respond’: Turley Blasts Gag Order, Says Witness ‘Campaigning’ Against Trump

George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley blasted New York judge Juan Merchan on Tuesday over an expanded gag order against former President Donald Trump.

Merchan imposed the expanded order Monday after the former President criticized the judge and his daughter in multiple posts on Truth Social. Turley said the gag order was preventing the former president from responding to attacks against him in the media, noting that Michael Cohen, a key witness for the prosecution, has attacked Trump in media appearances.

“This is a really controversial order and I think it’s wrong,” Turley told “Fox and Friends” co-host Brian Kilmeade. “You know, you’ve got Michael Cohen, who is going on the air every night attacking Trump, basically campaigning against him. He is not allowed to respond. Now, I would prefer that Trump leave these attacks or issues raised with the judge’s family to his counsel, I think that’s always the better approach.”
