(FixThisNation.com) – On Tuesday former President Trump blasted New York Attorney General Letitia James (D) for sitting in the courtroom across from his legal team in the New York civil fraud trial “smirking all day.”
In a post on Truth Social, Trump’s social media platform, he argued that James whom he referred to as “Racist” was spending every day in Court “smirking.” He added that this was a case with a “Trump Hating” Attorney General who was attempting to get damages worth millions of dollars when no bank had lost any money in these deals. He added that James’ position on this was clear from the way she sat in her seat each morning.
Trump has repeatedly stated regarding the civil trial in the past that it was politically motivated against him. Still, his legal team has an uphill battle in order to prove their case. Before the trial started Judge Arthur Engoron had already ruled that the Trump Organization and its executives were liable for fraud.
However, a New York appeals court ruled that the decision to have Trump’s business licenses stripped was paused as the court determined that the civil trial would first need to end before they move forward with such a move.
Trump’s civil trial is not connected in any way to the other four criminal indictments that he is facing. Two of them, a state and a federal one, indictments are focused on Trump’s attempts to overturn the 2020 presidential election. Another case in New York deals with a hush money payment made by Trump ahead of the 2016 presidential election, while the final case dealt with Trump’s alleged mishandling of classified documents.
