A significant ally of Donald Trump has filed a complaint on Tuesday against a Washington, DC, district judge who made an appearance on CNN last week and made disparaging remarks about the former president.
The Chief Judge of the DC Circuit Court of Appeals, Sri Srinivasan, received Davis’ complaint.
Back then, Trump had posted things claiming Judge Merchan was “totally compromised” and had “acute Trump derangement syndrome.”. Additionally, he voiced his displeasure with Loren Merchan for spreading false information about her online behavior.
According to Davis, “it is not reasonable for someone to read President Trump’s posts and conclude that he made any kind of threat.”.
For instance, President Trump refrained from disclosing the judge’s and his adult daughter’s residential addresses.
Additionally, President Trump did not support unlawful demonstrations in front of their residences. Apart from his appearance on CNN, Walton, a judge based in Washington, DC, has called Trump a “charlatan,” asserting that “power is his only concern” and raising doubts about his ability to concede defeat.
He went on, “Judge Walton’s blatant infraction taints four distinct juror pools, which is extremely prejudicial to President Trump.”.
Judge Merchan renewed the gag order he had previously placed on Trump on Monday, preventing him from disparaging the court staff, prosecutors, witnesses, etc. as well as the judge’s relatives.

As per the US Geological Survey, a significant earthquake measuring 7.4 on the Richter scale occurred near the eastern coast of Taiwan on Wednesday, triggering tsunami alerts for both the region and southern Japan.

The epicenter of the earthquake is roughly 18 kilometers (11 miles) south of Hualien. CNN personnel in Taipei was among those who felt the tremors throughout the island.

Taiwan’s Defense Ministry reported that there have been initial reports of damage, including houses in Hualien County that are tilted.

As aftershocks struck the island, schools and businesses ceased operations and military personnel were sent to assist with disaster relief.

A tsunami warning was issued by Taiwan’s Central Weather Administration after the earthquake. Due to the possibility of a tsunami striking the island’s northern coastal region, a CWA alert urged locals to seek higher ground.

A tsunami alert was also issued by the Japan Meteorological Agency for the Okinawa and Miyakojima islands, warning of waves as high as three meters, or almost ten feet, high. According to the agency, Okinawa was hit by a 30-centimeter (nearly 1-foot) wave.

According to a Central Weather Administration spokesman, this earthquake is the strongest to strike Taiwan in fifteen years. 2,400 people were killed and 10,000 injured when a 7.7 magnitude earthquake struck in 1999, 150 kilometers (93 miles) south of Taipei.

Taiwan is situated on the Pacific Ring of Fire, an area that encircles the Pacific Ocean and generates intense volcanic and seismic activity extending from Indonesia to Chile.

Earthquakes frequently jolt the island. In 2018, an earthquake with a magnitude of 6.2-2 occurred close to Hualien, leaving at least 17 dead and over 300 injured.

Near Taroko Gorge, a well-liked tourist destination, lies Hualien County, which has a population of roughly 300,000.
