Allison Greenfield, the top clerk for New York Justice Arthur Engoron, is accused of violating judicial rules by making excessive political donations.
A complaint was filed against Greenfield, detailing her significant political activity and donations to Democrat candidates and causes.
The complaint alleges that Greenfield exceeded the annual donation limit set for court officials. (Trending: Meet The Ultra Rich Megadonors Behind Democrats)
Trump's lawyer Christopher Kise talks back to Judge Engoron.
"Ask your law clerk first," Kise said, in reference to law clerk Allison Greenfield, former Democrat candidate for Senate.

“My name is Brock Fredin and I operate the Twitter account @JudicialProtest,” Fredin wrote. “I write with respect to the blatantly unethical and partisan conduct of Your Honor’s Principal Law Clerk Allison Greenfield, the Court’s ‘Gag Order’ issued today concerning President Trump’s retweeting of my tweet about Ms. Greenfield and Senator Chuck Schumer taken at a Chelsea Reform Democrat Club brunch and the overly apparent appearance of impropriety in the above-referenced matter with respect to Ms. Greenfield’s repeated partisan political and Democrat activities while employed as a law clerk.”
“Given that President Trump’s post at-issue today was a re-tweet of my original tweet on the @JudicialProtest account, the Court’s order directing President Trump to remove it is a direct attack on my First Amendment rights (as well as President Trump’s), particularly since the Court asserted on the record that my tweet was a ‘personal attack’ on Ms. Greenfield rather than a post exposing and criticizing the misconduct of a public official.”
“I am consequently an interested party and submit this letter as such. To be clear, though, this letter and its contents are not a ‘personal attack’ on Ms. Greenfield. Rather, this letter contains receipts and raises serious ethical violations as to her political speech and activities involving the Democrat Party while employed as your law clerk that undoubtedly create an appearance of impropriety in People v. Trump et al.”
Greenfield is the person responsible for Engoron's GAG ORDER against Mr. Trump!

The judge in the case has not notified counsel for Trump about the complaint, and it remains to be seen what consequences, if any, Greenfield will face.
The judge has defended Greenfield and instead accused a Trump lawyer of misogyny for raising questions about her.
“Justice Arthur Engoron is taking Christopher M. Kise, a lawyer for Mr. Trump, to task for disparaging his law clerk, Allison Greenfield. The judge says he thinks it may be a problem of misogyny and asks Kise not to mention his court staff again,” the New York Times’s Jonah Bromwich wrote.
