On Wednesday, ex-President Trump took to social media to express his dissatisfaction with the judge handling his New York civil fraud case. He vehemently protested the judge’s actions and even went so far as to implore him not to involve his children in the matter.
According to him, there is ample evidence to warrant the dismissal of the case.
On Truth Social, Trump criticized the trial initiated by New York State A.G. Letitia James and Judge Arthur Engoron, whom he accused of being biased against him and developers. He referred to Michael Cohen, his former personal lawyer, as the “star witness” and a “sleazebag lawyer” who, according to Trump, admitted to lying on the stand last week.
He added that based solely on that fact, the Fake Case should be dismissed.
According to his recent post, the ex-president asserted that the financial statements of his businesses were undervalued, which contradicts some of the evidence presented in the trial. Moreover, he restated the defense’s position that the statements included a “disclaimer clause” and that the banks were completely paid.

Trump directed his anger towards the judge, Engoron, and claimed himself to be the only victim. He demanded that his children be left alone and stated that the judge was a disgrace to the legal profession.
Amid the ongoing civil trial initiated by New York Attorney General Letitia James against Trump’s businesses and his two eldest sons, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, the former president made comments regarding the matter. The lawsuit alleges that for years, the Trump family falsely inflated and deflated the value of Trump Organization assets to receive lower taxes and better insurance coverage. This case has been ongoing for some time now, and the Trumps have been summoned to testify in court.
According to recent reports, Donald Trump Jr. is scheduled to testify in court on Wednesday as part of an ongoing fraud case in New York. Similarly, his brother Eric Trump is expected to testify on Thursday. This pivotal moment in the trial has been highly anticipated and will likely shed more light on the allegations at hand.
Having the two sons testify could prove to be crucial in gaining a deeper understanding of the company’s internal workings and whether or not they were involved in the purported fraud. It’s worth noting that both sons hold the position of executive vice president within the company.
It has been reported that Ivanka Trump, daughter of former President Donald Trump, is anticipated to provide testimony in her father’s ongoing fraud trial in New York. Initially named as a defendant in the legal proceedings, Ivanka was later dismissed from the case by a New York appeals court in June, citing that the statute of limitations had expired. Despite this, she is still expected to testify in the case.
On Monday, the trial will have the former president’s official testimony. According to The Hill, the trial related to civil fraud will feature the former president’s testimony.
In an effort to defend himself against accusations of violating a limited gag order, Donald Trump took the witness stand last week. The former president had made comments to reporters that the judge had deemed inappropriate. As a result, he was fined twice for these violations. Despite his attempts to explain his actions, the judge still found him guilty and imposed the fines.
