(FixThisNation.com) – On Saturday, former President Donald Trump stated that the judge in the New York civil fraud trial was a “puppet” for the state’s attorney general.
In a post on Truth Social, Trump argued that Judge Arthur Engoron who is presiding over his case is the “most overturned” Judge in New York and that he was the “total puppet” of Letitia James, the New York Attorney General. Trump proceeded to argue that James was the “most corrupt” attorney general and that in her state violent crimes were going extremely wild.
Trump also argued that James is the one to have committed fraud by undervaluing his properties in an attempt to make him “look bad.” The former President also slammed Engoron for having made a decision in the fraud case before the start of the trial.
This latest attack from Trump comes after a limited gag order was lifted by an appellate judge temporarily. The gag order blocked both Trump and his legal team from making any comments about the court staff. Trump’s recent motion for a mistrial in this case was rejected. In that motion, Trump had argued that Engoron and his principal law clerk had been biased against him which had “tainted” the case.
On Saturday the former President pointed out that even prior to the start of the trial there had been corruption from the judge and the prosecution. He added that Engoron was extremely partisan and had done exactly as the Attorney General had told him to do.
