Judge Says Putting Donald Trump Into Jail Would Be The Last Thing He would Want To Do



Donald Trump’s hush money trial is set to resume Monday in Manhattan Criminal Court, where the prosecution will continue presenting its historic case against the former president.

Ahead of testimonies, Judge Juan Merchan informed Trump that he had found him in contempt of court for a 10th time for violating the gag order.

“The last thing that I want to do is to put you in jail,” Merchan said.

Last week, the court heard testimony from Hope Hicks, Trump’s former longtime aide and press secretary for his 2016 campaign who testified about behind-the-scenes efforts to bury negative stories about his alleged extramarital affairs in the wake of the infamous “Access Hollywood” tape.

Trump is facing 34 felony counts of falsifying business records to conceal a $130,000 hush money payment to Daniels, who is among the witnesses expected to testify in the weeks-long trial.
