(FeaturedNews.com) – On Friday, Judge Juan Merchan, who is handling former President Donald Trump’s hush money case, clarified that former President Donald Trump was allowed to testify during the trial. This was in correction to what Trump had stated a day earlier when he had argued that the gag order was blocking him from giving his testimony. 

Merchan opened up the proceedings on Friday by arguing that it had come to his attention that there was potentially a misunderstanding regarding the gag order and whether or not Trump is able to testify. He added that this was something that needed to be cleared up. 

Merchan noted that Trump completely had the right to testify or not testify. This statement was made before the jury was brought into the room. He pointed out that the gag order was not blocking Trump from testifying and that it was only applicable to remarks he made while outside the court. 

The remarks from the judge had come after Thursday when Trump had told the press after the proceedings adjourned that he was not allowed to testify as he was under a gag order. Trump had stated that while looking at his attorney Todd Blanche. 

Trump had added that the judge, in this case, was completely “conflicted” that the gag order against him was completely unconstitutional and that nobody had had that before and it was unfair. 

Trump had been blocked from making any public remarks about witnesses and jurors in this case.
