Former President Donald Trump accused the wife of the judge in charge of the civil fraud case against him of being linked to a social media account that has broadcast anti-Trump messages.
The former president used the Truth Social platform to expose some of the publications that Dawn Engoron, wife of Arthur Engoron, allegedly made through an account identified as “@dm_sminxs” on X (previously known as Twitter).
In some of the examples that Trump shared, you can see how @dm_sminxs commented on the trial against the former president and mocked him with fictional illustrations showing the former president as the Wicked Witch of the West from “The Wizard of Oz” and in orange jumpsuits typically worn by prisoners.
“At what point do High Court officials step in, and end this witch hunt? Judge Engoron is making fools of the New York State judicial system!” Trump said with obvious indignation.
The former president also insisted that the trial against him should never have been allowed.
Dawn Engoron denies the accusation
The wife of Judge Arthur Engoron denied that she had any connection with the @dm_sminxs account, which currently remains deactivated.
“The Twitter account with the handel [sic] @dm_sminxs does not belong to me. I do not have a Twitter account. I have never posted any anti Trump messages,” she said in an email that was shared by The Hill.
New York court reinstates gag order against Trump
This Thursday, a New York state appeals court decided to reinstate the gag order issued by Arthur Engoron.
The court did not explain the decision to once again muzzle the former president with the order preventing Trump or his lawyers from commenting on the staff working for the judge in charge of the case.
