Trumped-Up Charges

'VERY, VERY UNFAIR TRIAL': Tense Exchanges as Trump Takes the Stand in New York [DETAILS]

posted by Hannity Staff - 11.06.23

Former President and 2024 GOP frontrunner Donald Trump is testifying in New York City today in a civil trial stemming from an NYAG lawsuit. Trump has mixed it up several times with New York Judge Arthur Engoron.

From Fox News:

Kevin Wallace, a lawyer in the New York Attorney General’s Office, began questioning the former president during his unprecedented time on the stand—specifically about his statements of financial condition.

Trump said the statements were “not really documents the banks paid much attention to,” and Wallace asked how he knew that. The former president said he has been dealing with banks for “50 years and they look at the deals.”

“We’ll explain it as this trial goes along—crazy trial,” Trump said.

Engoron, though, said Wallace was being “patient,” but wanted the questioning to move along faster.

“Please just answer the questions—no speeches,” Engoron said.

Trump’s defense attorney Chris Kise interjected, saying the questions are open-ended and required lengthy answers.

Wallace went on to show Trump his 2014 statement of financial condition. Wallace read a portion that said Trump was responsible for preparing that statement.

“What they wanted was as much information as we could give them so that they could do their statements,” Trump said, adding that he was responsible for giving preparers the necessary information.

When asked what he was personally responsible for, Trump said: “It was so long ago, but well beyond the statute of limitations for anyone else, but not me because I’m sure the judge will rule against me.”

Engoron fired back at Kise, asking if Trump’s comment was a “necessary part of the narrative?”

Kise says the judge should allow the former president of the United States “a little latitude.”

Engoron went on to ask Trump to “answer the question.”

“You can attack me as much as you want, but please answer the question,” Engoron said.

Trump unloaded on TRUTH Social before the trial, saying “Getting ready to head to the Downtown Lower Manhattan Courthouse to testify in one of the many cases that were instigated and brought by my POLITICAL OPPONENT, Crooked Joe Biden, through agencies and surrogates, for purposes of ELECTION INTERFERENCE. This is the first time this method of cheating in an election has been so blatantly used in the USA as a POLITICAL WEAPON! Mostly done in Third World Countries. Got a really Biased, Nasty, Club controlled, but often overturned, Judge, a Racist, Evil, and Corrupt Attorney General, BUT A CASE THAT, ACCORDING TO ALMOST ALL LEGAL SCHOLARS, HAS ZERO MERIT. A dark day for our Country. WITCH HUNT!”
