Trump’s Legal Team Shakes Up Imminent New York Fraud Trial



Clear Facts:

  • Former President Trump’s lawyers challenge the upcoming New York fraud trial against him, accusing the presiding judge, Arthur Engoron, of bias and overreach.
  • Justice David Friedman temporarily halts the trial, pending a decision by the appellate court set for the week of Sept. 25.
  • Attorney General Letitia James alleges Trump inflated his assets’ value by billions, while Trump denies any wrongdoing, asserting banks profited from their association with him.

Former President Donald J. Trump, once again, takes on the legal battleground. This time, it’s New York’s Attorney General’s fraud lawsuit against Trump that’s making headlines. But just when we thought the trial was set to proceed, Trump’s lawyers put forward a curveball, challenging the very legitimacy of the judge presiding over the case.

Judge Arthur Engoron, already having some friction with Trump’s team, was all set to lead the non-jury trial beginning Oct. 2. However, Trump’s legal maestros are crying foul, accusing Engoron of overstepping his authority, particularly by dismissing their plea for a three-week delay in the trial’s commencement.

Their discontent runs deep, alluding to previous unfavorable rulings against Trump by Engoron, which in one instance cost Trump a whopping $110,000. It seems Trump’s disdain for Engoron is mutual, with the former President previously condemning him as “vicious, biased, and mean.”

Stepping into this legal tug of war, Justice David Friedman has issued an interim stay, putting the trial on hold until the appellate court renders its verdict by the week of Sept. 25.

As Attorney General Letitia James builds her case, claiming Trump inflated the value of his assets, like skyscrapers and golf courses, by a jaw-dropping $3.6 billion, Trump vehemently defends his position. Brushing off the lawsuit’s allegations, Trump highlighted that the banks involved in the transactions in question were “fully paid” and even turned a profit from their dealings with him.

While Trump may not personally testify if the trial moves forward, recordings of his depositions might take center stage. As the countdown begins for the appellate court’s decision, it remains to be seen if the trial will proceed as planned or if the saga will take yet another unexpected turn.

    I think the whole episode is nothing but another witch hunt. They are trying to keep the news about Trump no matter what just to keep the publics eye off of the corrupt Biden regime and the election fraud .

    She touted while running for office that her main goal would be to ‘get’ DJT. Pitiful if that is her only goal in life to be famous.

    This is another of trumps delay delay tactics. I believe he is guilty and he knows it. This is a man who has his supporters pay billions in legal fees for him. This is the same stuff he has been doing for years if you have done some homework on the man’s past business practices

      Mr. Trump is entitled to a fair and IMPARTIAL court decision whether you like it or not, just like every American citizen.
      Notice you said nothing about the current administration, his son, his brother and himself.

      If you want to look at delay tactics, check out how long it’s taking the alphabet agencies to comply with court orders for documentation. Nothing to see there?? And, as Janet B said, what about the FJB “administration”? I’m happy to see there is not a single biased bone in your body. MAGA!!!!!

    The Democrats main goal is to prevent # 45 from running for President. They will come up with every excuse,
    true or false/fake, made-up or otherwise, with an attempt to drain Trump’s money, until they dream Trump will
    crawl. However, WE THE PEOPLE are not blind or stupid !!!! We have seen the corruption, abuse of power, the greed
    for money, in all the career politicians’ dealings with China, and other countries. Do you think we are that
    clueless no matter how the media complicitly covers for the guilty here? Big mistake !!!!!
    May God let the Truth come out, and let HIS candidate win as answer to the peoples’ prayers.
    PEACE be with you.
