LEGAL/NEW YORK/SOCIAL MEDIA: “The New York state judge presiding over the criminal hush money case against Donald Trump issued an order Monday restricting the former president from posting about some evidence in the case on social media.

Judge Juan Merchan largely sided with Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg by limiting what Trump can publicly disclose about new evidence from the prosecution before the case goes to trial…

Prosecutors had argued they needed ‘safeguards that will protect the integrity of the materials,’ saying the ‘risk’ that Trump would use them ‘inappropriately is substantial.’”
