Judge Arthur Engoron of the New York County Supreme Court ordered former President Donald Trump to testify on Wednesday regarding an alleged violation of a gag order that cost the 45th president $10,000.

When Trump mentioned a “very partisan judge with a person who is very partisan sitting alongside him, perhaps even much more partisan than he is,” Engoron asked who he was referring to, as CNBC reported.

It was reported that Engoron suspected he was referring to Clerk Allison Greenfield. Engoron is presiding over the non-jury civil case that New York Attorney General Letitia James has brought against Trump and his two eldest sons.

Trump claimed he was referring to both Engoron and his former lawyer, Michael Cohen, who is testifying against him in the case.

“Are you sure that you didn’t mean the person on the other side, my principal law clerk?” Engoron asked, the Hill reported.

“Yes, I’m sure,” the 45th president responded. However, Engoron did not believe Trump and fined him $10,000 after he returned to his seat, noting that the punishment was “on the liberal side.”

This comes after Engoron fined Trump $5,000 on Friday for breaking his gag order.

“Make no mistake: future violations, whether intentional or unintentional, will subject the violator to far more severe sanctions,” Engoron said in a court filing at the time, as per the Associated Press (AP).

“(These) may include, but are not limited to, steeper financial penalties, holding Donald Trump in contempt of court, and possibly imprisoning him pursuant to New York Judiciary Law,” the judge wrote.

Following social media criticism from Trump, who has referred to Engoron as a “Democrat operative” who ought to be “disbarred,” Engoron placed a gag order on Greenfield on October 3, according to the AP.

According to Breitbart News, Democratic candidate James filed a $250 million lawsuit against the front-runner Republican presidential candidate, claiming he and his sons “engaged in numerous acts of fraud and misrepresentation” by overvaluing at least 23 commercial properties for at least ten years.
