Former President Donald Trump accused New York Attorney General Letitia James of knowing the decision in his fraud trial ahead of time.
In a Sunday morning rant on his Truth Social platform, Trump pointed out that New York Supreme Court Justice Arthur Engoron is expected to rule on his case in the coming days. Trump faces accusations of manipulating property values for financial gain.
“I DID NOTHING WRONG!!! NO JURY ALLOWED, Great Financial Statements (which were very conservative, the opposite of the charge!), No Victims, No Fraud, No Crimes, Happy Banks and Insurance Companies, only success and profits,” Trump wrote, repeating earlier claims about the case.
“And a corrupt N.Y.S. Attorney General,” he continued, “who sat comfortably and confidently in Court with her shoes off, arms folded, a Starbucks Coffee, and a BIG smile on her face… JUST LIKE SHE KNOWS EXACTLY WHAT THE DECISION WILL BE!”
Trump called closing arguments by the state “pathetic.”
“NO WITNESSES AND NO EVIDENCE AGAINST ME!” he exclaimed. “The Judge is being badly influenced, and the Gag Order must come off! REMEMBER,THIS JUDGE RULED AGAINST ME BEFORE THE TRIAL EVEN STARTED, AND HE KNEW NOTHING ABOUT THE CASE. The public is angry over this HOAX. This trial is RIGGED!”
