Former President and 2024 presidential candidate Donald Trump is having to sit through days and days of courtroom battles in his former home state of New York over allegations that he inflated the values of his real estate properties, allegations that he flatly denies.
As could be expected, the former president has not been enthused with the suit and his need to fight it off instead of traveling the nation and campaigning before the primary begins, and so he has gone on the warpath against the Judge in the case, Judge Arthur Engoron, and the New York Attorney General behind the suit, NY AG Letitia James.
Recently, Trump exploded on that Democrat duo in a post on Truth Social, tearing into their claims about his real estate properties, their use of Michael Cohen as a witness despite his poor reputation and what he’s actually told them, and what he thinks the value of his properties, particularly Mar-a-Lago, is.
Beginning, Trump said, “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.”
He continued, “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!”
In another post about Judge Engoron, Trump said, “We won against Engoron in the Appeals Court, knocking out a big part of the case, but he then refused to accept their decision. He just said “NO.” He is often overturned, one of the most, and couldn’t care less. I don’t believe we even one a single motion during this entire excursion into the wilderness of CRAZY. The State won 100% of their motions, including the fastest trial date for such a case in memory, “with no extensions for anything.” I’m being “railroaded” at a level never seen before.”
He continued, “When Cohen admitted the whole case was a lie, he didn’t care. Think of it, we had a Perry Mason moment with their Star Witness and the judge acted like nothing had happened, and then started screaming at us. He then put a RIDICULOUS GAG ORDER ON ME, which we will appeal. He fines me at levels never seen before. The A.G.’s people are thrilled, but can’t believe it is happening. Engoron is crazy, totally unhinged, and dangerous – Our Judicial System has gone to HELL.”
