Trump Lashes Out at New York Attorney General, Calls Fraud Case a 'Witch Hunt.' Judge Threatens to Remove Trump

  • 7 months ago
Donald Trump accused New York Attorney General Letitia James of pursuing a "political witch hunt" in the New York civil fraud case against him and his business. In the former president's testimony, he clashed with Judge Arthur Engoron, accusing the judge of bias. Judge Engoron threatened to remove Trump from testifying at one point for not answering questions directly. Trump admitted to some errors in financial statements for properties like Trump Tower but denied intentionally misleading valuations while staunchly defending the value of other assets like Mar-a-Lago. The case centers on whether Trump inflated his net worth and property values to fraudulently obtain loans and economic benefits. A ruling against Trump could bar him from conducting business in New York.
