Donald Trump said he would “gladly” go to jail to protect his freedom of speech – but it seems far from crossing the red line set by a New York judge.

Trump is subject to limited silence in the so-called “secret money” criminal case in New York, which prevents him from talking about people involved in the case, including witnesses, jurors, and the prosecutor, in addition to the judge.

The letters are scathing and personal, directed at presiding judge Juan Merchan, Judge Arthur Engoron of the civil fraud case against Trump and his companies, as well as federal Judge Lewis Kaplan, who presided over a civil defamation lawsuit against Trump — but did not attack witnesses or other court personnel.

“If this partisan hack wants to put me in the ‘clink’ for speaking the public and obvious TRUTH, I will happily become a modern-day Nelson Mandela – that would be my GREATEST HONOR,” Trump wrote in his message.

 Prepare for the election: Find out who’s running for president and compare their positions on key issues in our Voter’s Guide. “Imagine being so self-centered to the point of comparing myself to Jesus Christ and Nelson Mandela in space a bit more.

“Over a week: 4,444, that’s Donald Trump for you,” Harris said in a statement.

Those messages came hours before a Saturday night fundraiser in which Trump’s campaign hopes to pocket nearly $50 million at a  Palm Beach rally at the home of hedge fund guru John Paulson.
