Trump held in contempt after violating gag order in hush money trial

NEW YORK — Former president Donald Trump was held in contempt of court Tuesday for repeatedly violating a gag order, and the judge overseeing his ongoing criminal trial warned him that he could go to jail if he keeps breaking the court’s rules.

“Defendant is hereby warned that the Court will not tolerate continued violations of its lawful orders and that if necessary and appropriate under the circumstances, it will impose an incarceratory punishment,” New York Supreme Court Justice Juan Merchan wrote in an eight-page ruling finding Trump violated the order on nine occasions.
