Donald Trump will not be sitting at the defense table while his boys and daughter testify in the New York fraud case.
Trump, however, did have a message for his arch-nemesis Judge Engoron.
With Trump Jr. slated to testify first, Trump left a warning for the judge on Truth Social.
Leave Them Alone
With Engoron not actually being the one to call the Trumps to the stand, this would appear to be a warning to Engoron to not give the Trump children a hard time on the stand.
Trump posted a lengthy warning to the judge on Truth Social, stating, "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.
"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.”
Both Trump boys have the title of Executive Vice President, so it is no surprise that they are being called during this trial. Ivanka was also an Executive Vice President at the time of the financial statements in question, so it was a given that she would be testifying as well.
I believe Trump is more worried about them getting implicated in the case somehow, as James has made it quite clear she would like to take down the entire family.
Trump has to be careful, however. While I don’t think that statement he made would necessarily be considered a threat, you just do not know if some whacko will decide to go after Engoron, and if that happens, we all know James will point the finger at Trump.
As I have stated before in this matter, Trump just needs to keep his cool, accept the fact that he will probably lose this case before Engoron, and concentrate on winning the case at the appellate or Supreme Court level.
