Before leaving the bench, Justice Merson reiterated That he signed the order to show cause for the prosecution's latest request to hold Trump in contempt for four new violations. This comes after prosecutors filed a lawsuit and argued in court that Trump violated the gag order four more times in the past few days.

A hearing will be held next Wednesday at 2:15 p.m. ET, he said.

Assistant District Attorney Chris Conroy addressed the additional violations in court Thursday morning, attributing another proposed order to the judge, which Merchan signed.

At a hearing Tuesday morning, prosecutors had already cited 10 social media posts asking Mercen to hold Trump in contempt for violating the gag order. They also want to remove the posts. Merchan has yet to rule on these violations.

Trump is holding two campaign events next Wednesday. He must remain in court for the gag-order hearing until the judge signs a waiver to excuse him.
