A New York appeals court has reinstated a gag order against former President Donald Trump, preventing him from making comments about court staff while his civil fraud trial is ongoing.

The order was initially imposed by state Supreme Court Judge Arthur Engoron, who also fined Trump for violating the gag order.

Trump and his attorneys are banned from discussing court staff, but Trump can still criticize Engoron and state Attorney General Letitia James. (Trending: Bombshell Email Uncovered Between Joe Biden And Hunter)

“I intend to enforce the gag orders rigorously and vigorously and I want to make sure counsel informs their clients of the fact that the stay was vacated,” Engoron said..

“It’s a tragic day for the rule of law, but we are aware,” Trump attorney Chris Kise said to Engoron.

“It is what it is,” Engoron responded.

Kise later said it is “hard to imagine a more unfair process and hard to believe this is happening in America,” saying that Trump “may not even comment on why he thinks he cannot get a fair trial.”

“Judge Engoron and Letitia James should be impeached and removed from office for fraudulently reducing my Asset Values, by many times, in order to hurt and demean me,” Trump posted.

“It is a political Witch Hunt, and a great embarrassment to New York State. REMOVE THEM AND DISMISS THIS RIDICULOUS, NO VICTIM, NO JURY, CASE!”

“The Constitution does not permit Justice Engoron to curtail [Trump’s] speech simply because people may react to things that President Trump says,” Trump’s attorneys wrote.

The gag order was sought to protect staff from threats and harassment, with court officials citing credible threats and daily harassment due to Trump’s comments.
