Former President Donald Trump, never one to hold back his opinions, is going on the attack against Judge Arthur Engoron and New York Attorney General Letitia James, who are involved in the civil trial against his business. The trial, which is set to begin on Monday and could drag on for months, has the potential to cause some serious headaches for the former real estate mogul.
Trump is accusing Judge Engoron of misrepresenting the value of his assets and is calling for his resignation. He also has some choice words for Attorney General James, claiming that she is guilty of “purposeful and criminal Election Interference.” In a typical Trumpian fashion, he took to his newly-created social media platform, Truth Social, to air his grievances.
The trial, which will be presided over by Judge Engoron, will determine whether Trump should be held responsible for manipulating the value of his properties and assets to gain financial advantages. If he is found guilty, it could have far-reaching consequences for his finances and his ability to do business in the Big Apple.

Despite his ongoing legal battles, Trump is showing no signs of slowing down. In fact, the GOP front-runner for the 2024 presidential race has announced his intention to attend the court proceedings on Monday. And true to form, he took the opportunity to launch a scathing attack on Judge Engoron and Attorney General James.
In response to his claims, the Trump campaign has been quick to point out that Letitia James has received campaign donations from none other than George Soros, a billionaire liberal donor and a favorite target for Republicans. They suggest that “getting Trump” was the motivation behind her campaign for attorney general.
Unimpressed by Trump’s allegations, Attorney General James remains confident in her case. She cited Judge Engoron’s previous ruling, where he accused Trump of living in a “fantasy world” and inflating his net worth in order to “cheat the system.” She firmly believes that the rule of law must apply equally to everyone, regardless of their wealth or power.
As this high-stakes trial gets underway, it’s clear that tensions are running high and emotions are flaring. Strap yourselves in, folks – it’s going to be a bumpy ride.
