New York Attorney General Stands Firm against Trump in $250M Civil Fraud Suit
New York Attorney General Letitia James has refused to back down in the face of personal attacks and intimidation from former President Donald Trump during the ongoing $250 million civil fraud suit against him. Trump, appearing outside the courthouse, criticized the trial as “rigged” and claimed that the presiding judge, Arthur Engoron, was biased due to his affiliation with the Democratic Party.
In response to Trump’s comments, James denounced his personal attacks on her as offensive and baseless race-baiting comments that only serve to incite violence. She stressed that the case was brought forth to address a pattern and practice of fraud and reiterated that she won’t allow anyone, including Trump, to undermine the rule of law.
Despite the mounting criticism, Trump continued to target Judge Engoron, accusing him of being a Democrat and suggesting that he already had a predetermined outcome in mind. In response, Engoron decided to impose a partial gag order on Trump after he insulted one of the judge’s law clerks in a social media post.
Meanwhile, Letitia James is seeking $250 million in penalties and aiming to remove Trump and his sons from any managerial roles within the Trump Organization. The suit took a significant turn last week when Engoron ruled that Trump and his sons had lied about the value of their properties, resulting in revoked business licenses.
However, Trump has not gone down without a fight. He filed an appeal against Engoron’s ruling, signaling his determination to contest the charges against him. The trial will continue despite the appeal, opening up the possibility of further revelations and legal developments.
This civil fraud suit represents just one of the legal battles Trump currently faces. The former president is also confronting federal charges for his alleged attempts to overturn the 2020 election and mishandling of classified documents. In addition, he is facing racketeering charges in Georgia for his efforts to overturn election results in that state.
As the trial unfolds and Trump’s legal woes intensify, the outcome of these various cases could have a significant impact on his political future and potential aspirations. The Liberty Conservative will continue to monitor these developments closely, providing our readers with the latest updates on this ongoing saga.
