The Donald Trump fraud case in New York is bringing out the crazies.
A woman was arrested as the court, reportedly a court employee, for approaching Trump.
Local reports stated that she was yelling out to Trump when authorities escorted her out of the courtroom and took her into custody.
What Was She Thinking?
Now, to be clear, nobody ever appeared to be in any danger, and the motive of the woman was not known s this point.
Office of Court Administration spokesman Lucian Chalfen said the woman, who has since been identified as Jenny Hannigan, disrupted the proceedings “by standing up and walking towards the front of the courtroom yelling out to Mr. Trump.”
He later added, “None of the parties were ever in any danger.”
Police also stated that after removing her from the court, when they actually took her into custody, she started to scream, “Help me! Save me!”
Trump was apparently completely unaware of the situation until after he came out of the courtroom. When asked for a comment on the arrest, he stated, “Who got arrested? We didn’t know anything about it.”
Trump managed to get himself into trouble during the trial again when Doug Larson, a real estate appraiser, was testifying.
At one point, one of the prosecutors stated, “Can the defendant please stop commenting during the witness’ testimony?”
Trump had reportedly been loudly reacting to comments made by Larson while he was on the stand.
After Larson was done testifying, Trump's lawyer Chris Kise jumped up, stating, “He perjured himself yesterday, in my opinion.”
Kevin Wallace, a lawyer in New York Attorney General Letitia James’ office, fired back, “This is a performance for the press sitting behind us, and not a real legal issue.” Counsel for the Attorney General Colleen Kelly Faherty added, “This is witness intimidation!”
Judge Engoron then ordered Larson to retake the stand, siding with prosecutors, stating, “I don’t see an inconsistency” in Larson’s testimony.
That is just how things are going to go for Trump in this case, as I believe he has virtually no shot of winning this case in Engoron’s courtroom and will need to lean into his appeal for any relief.
