Former President Donald Trump arrived in New York City on Monday where he entered the Supreme Court located in Manhattan for the first day of the trial concerning claims that he inflated his net worth by a total of billions of dollars in order to receive better loans. This, again, is an attempt by the radical left to politicize the legal system and use it as a weapon against the main opponent President Joe Biden will likely have to deal with in the 2024 general election. Leftists are terrified of Trump and want him removed from the playing field, believing that any other candidate is too weak to defeat the octogenarian in his bid for a second term in the White House.
As the former president arrived at the courthouse, he spoke with the press saying the trial was “a continuation of the single greatest witch hunt of all time.” The accusations against him state that he inflated his net worth by $2 billion in specific years, and as a result, was able to receive better loans. New York Attorney General Letitia James wants to punish Trump by slapping him with a $250 million fine.
“There is no crime,” Trump remarked before he went in the chamber. “The crime is against me.”
According to the latest report from the Daily Wire, “Alina Habba, a lawyer for Trump, also spoke before the trial began, saying that Trump was facing the charges because he is leading in the polls. Trump has consistently held a large lead in the Republican presidential primary and has gained a lead on President Joe Biden as well.”
“What we are witnessing is election interference of somebody who is leading in the polls the more they hit him. So keep hitting him, because he’s going to keep fighting,” Habba commented. James also took an opportunity to talk with reporters on Monday, accusing Trump of participating in fraud.
“Today we will prove our other claims,” she confidently stated. “My message is simple: No matter how powerful you are, no matter how much money you think you may have, no one is above the law. And it is my responsibility and my duty and my job to enforce it.”
Just last week, Judge Arthur Engoron, who is a known Democrat, ruled that the former president is liable for “persistent fraud” after the New York State Attorney General’s Office claimed that Trump had prepared, certified, and submitted false and misleading financial statements to various lenders. And I’m sure Engoron is being 100 percent objective and partial in presiding over this case. Eye roll here.
“As part of that ruling, Trump and his sons, Donald Jr. and Eric, could lose control over their New York properties. James sued them under a law requiring a judge to decide the outcome rather than a jury, meaning that Engoron will decide if Trump needs to pay the $250 million, according to the New York Times,” the Daily Wire said.
Ahead of his appearance in court on Monday, Trump took to Truth social and posted a video and text message to his followers speaking against the charges leveled against him.
“I’m going to Court tomorrow morning to fight for my name and reputation against a corrupt and racist Attorney General, Letitia James, who campaigned on ‘getting Trump,’ and a Trump Hating Judge who is unfair, unhinged, and vicious in his PURSUIT of me,” Trump said in the post. “He values Mar-a-Lago, in Palm Beach, Florida, at 18 Million Dollars, when it is worth 50 to 100 times that amount. His valuations are FRAUDULENT in pursuit of Election Interference, and worse. THIS WHOLE CASE IS A SHAM!!! See you in Court – Monday morning.”
