Judge Merchan will hold a Contempt of Court hearing on April 23rd over the gag order. Prosecutors have requested a fine of $3,000 over the tweets Trump did recently; specifically, $1,000 per tweet for 3 tweets. Defense has to file papers on it. So, that's next week.

Next week, on the 22nd, Monday, comes the bail bond hearing. Then, on the 23rd, Tuesday, the Contempt hearing. Courtroom is dark on Wednesday, and after that, on the 25th, Thursday, the USSC hears arguments on the Immunity issue.

Trump requested to have the 25th off to attend that hearing, and also May XX, to attend Barron's high school graduation. Both requests were denied. At least Barron will get his special day all to himself and Melania, without the Trump circus. Sad, but true.
