A New York judge barred Donald Trump from posting evidence from his criminal case on social media, restricting the former president’s ability to make public statements about charges alleging he directed hush-money payments to an adult film actress.

State Supreme Court Justice Juan Merchan on Monday also restricted Trump from publicly disclosing details about witnesses or other evidence that Manhattan prosecutors have collected against him. The order comes as Trump is trying to get the case transfered to federal court.
