According to prosecutors, this is a concerted legal strategy by Trump to intimidate judges who are not giving him an extension to delay the trial.

Trump is accused of violating a gag order which had forbidden him from attacking judges’ families.

Trump is facing 91 criminal charges on four indictments,             which relates to his attempt to overthrow the 2020 election and more than three dozen other charges over his hoarding of classified documents in Florida.  These are not all Trump had recently posted a bond of $175 million in a New York appeals court. The bond had related to a case where the former president had directed deputies to change the value of his properties. The charges are believed to have left him short of money for his campaign. According to the Huffington Post, Biden in March had $155 million in campaign to Trump’s $42 million. The president also recently brought in former presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton to campaign for him at a recent event on March 28 which netted $26 million: a campaign record.
