Former American president Donald Trump made a shocking legal move ahead of his children testifying in the massive civil fraud lawsuit filed against the Trump Organization.
New York Attorney General Letitia James alleges that the Trump Organizaton, under the direction of Trump and his adult children, inflated financial assets including golf courses and hotels to defraud insurance companies and obtain favorable loans from banks as they built their real estate empire.
Judge Arthur Engoron, who has already fined Trump $15,000 for twice violating a gag order against criticizing his subordinates, drew Trump’s ire on Truth Social.
“This Rigged Trial, brought by the Racist New York State A.G. Letitia James before Trump and developer Hating Judge, Arthur Engoron, which should have never been brought in that the so-called STAR WITNESS, SleazeBag Lawyer (for many people) Michael Cohen, admitted last week on the stand that he LIED, and also that your favorite President, Donald J. Trump, or anyone from the Trump Organization, NEVER TOLD HIM TO INFLATE VALUES ON FINANCIAL STATEMENTS, the opposite of what he told the A.G. in order to get this HOAX started,” Trump wrote in his unique style.
“Therefore, on that fact alone, this Fake Case should be dismissed. Additionally, however, the Financial Statements Values are Conservative (LOW!), Mar-a-Lago is worth MUCH MORE than $18,000,000, there is a 100% Disclaimer Clause on the 1st page of the Statements, the Banks and Insurance Companies were paid in full, no defaults, they all made money, and there is no Victim (except me!).
“Leave my children alone, Engoron. You are a disgrace to the legal profession,” he added.
Trump’s lawyers didn’t immediately return a request for comment. Trump, like all Americans, is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
