Trump: Trial Is ‘Political Warfare,’ Defends Business Record In Heated Testimony
There are only two ways we can view Trump’s fraud trial in New York. Either the prosecution is not aware that banks perform their own risk assessment prior to giving loans, OR we can pretend that banks do not perform their own risk assessment and that is actually the job of elected officials. Otherwise, nothing the prosecution does will make sense to you. So pick one.
Well, there is however a third option to view this trial. That it is politically motivated and is a witch hunt. But that is definitely not the case here so just forget about that one.
"Legal scholars are saying this is the most unfair witch hunt they've ever seen," Trump said during his testimony, according to The Gazette.
Trump did not hold back criticism on Monday as he testified during a heated day in court to defend allegations that he inflated his net worth by billions for better loans.
Trump got into several intense back-and-forths with the totally fair and impartial judge, Arthur Engoron, who complained throughout the testimony about answers he claimed were too vague, as well as some political speeches.
Trump also attacked the prosecution’s case and said he was the victim of a political prosecution. But we know that is definitely not true.
“This is political warfare, as you would call it. Or political law-fare, another name. I got a lot of names for it,” Trump said before entering the courthouse. “Usually it takes place in third-world countries and banana republics. Nobody has ever seen that to this extent, we’ve never seen it here.”
I would like to hear the other names Trump has for it.
At one point, Engoron threatened to dismiss Trump and “draw every negative inference” that he could.
“No. I'm not here to hear what he has to say. I'm here to hear him answer questions. Sit down.” Engoron said.
Engoron then loses his mind.
“We got another speech. I beseech you to control him if you can. If you can’t, I will. I will excuse him and draw every negative inference that I can.”
Basically, Trump did not get the memo to follow the same script Engoron had come up with in his head.
Addressing Engoron directly at one point during his testimony, Trump said, "It's a terrible thing you've done. You knew nothing about me."
Engoron previously ruled partly in favor of James and found there was "persistent and repeated" fraud in his business dealings.
“Mr. Trump has repeatedly and consistently misrepresented and inflated the value of his assets and before he takes the stand I’m certain that he will engage in name-calling, taunts, and race-baiting, calling this a witch hunt,” James said.
The trial is expected to assess more narrow claims, as well as determine penalties.
Yes, they have already found him guilty before trial. You know, because it's guilty until proven innocent these days.
"You believed this political hack back there," Trump added, pointing to James.
Prosecutors pressed Trump on the changing valuation of Trump Tower from $327 million to $116.8 million, which came after Forbes had reported he had inflated his net worth, according to CNN.
“There’s a disclaimer clause where you don’t have to get sued by the attorney general of New York,” Trump said, according to CNN.
Well, I guess that disclaimer only holds up in every court except this one.
Do government officials not know how the real world works? Since when have city officials been concerned with protecting incompetent banks? This case is a political clown show, nothing more, nothing less.
Based on the Judge's comments, would you say that the odds of Trump’s appeal being successful have increased significantly?
