United States News, United States Headlines

The judge in Donald Trump’s civil business fraud trial barred attorneys in the case Friday from commenting on “confidential communications” between him and his staff, after the former president’s attorneys renewed claims that a clerk is poisoning the proceedings.

The former president and current Republican 2024 front-runner is due to testify Monday in the case, which threatens the real estate empire that launched him into the public eye and, eventually, politics. “There should be no doubt at this point that politics is now permeating our courts,” the spokesperson, Erica Knight, wrote in a statement.

Separately on Friday, a federal appeals court temporarily lifted a gag order on Trump in his 2020 election interference case in Washington.
