Judge Arthur Engoron of the far-left faction summoned former President Trump to the stand after he made disparaging remarks in violation of a gag order. For this, he fined the ex-president $10,000.

New York Attorney General Letitia James is seeking a penalty amounting to $250 million for alleged fraud, while also pursuing a ban on Trump and his sons from engaging in business operations within New York State.

During a mid-morning recess, Trump publicly denounced Michael Cohen as a “discredited witness” and derided Judge Engoron as “partisan”.

“He’s a felon, convicted felon for lying, went to jail for lying, and this is their only witness,” Trump said to reporters. “When you think about it, it’s pretty amazing.”

Trump defended his net worth and his empire’s assets.

“The financial statements that we use were very conservative,” the former president added. “In addition to that, we have a disclaimer, which is go out and do your own due diligence, don’t necessarily believe what you read. In fact, don’t believe what you read, and here are the financials. You can look at them, and you can do whatever you want with it, but do not do anything in terms of considering them without analysis or due diligence.”

“Our country has become a laughing stock all over the world,” Trump told the press.


“I stated the last time that any future violations would be severely punished. Why should there not be severe sanctions for this blatant, dangerous disobeying of a court order?” Engoron said according to NBC News.

Trump’s attorney informed the judge that he had posed a query regarding Trump’s comments and that Trump had responded by indicating his remarks were in reference to Michael Cohen.

“Language sometimes is not clear, but this is clear to me,” he said, adding he’d take the matter “under advisement.” – according to NBC News.

Judge Engoron placed President Trump on the witness stand and questioned him regarding his statements to reporters. Inquiring if these remarks were directed at Cohen, Trump provided a confirmation of “Yes”.

Despite this response, the judge imposed a fine of $10,000 on Trump for his remarks.

“First of all, my principal law clerk is very close to me…”You and I can see each other and we are close but not as close, and there’s a barrier between us so wouldn’t that be at best somewhat ambiguous as to whom you were referring?” Judge Engoron said.

The judge warned Trump: “Don’t do it again or it’ll be worse.”

Last Friday Engoron fined President Trump $5000 for ‘violating’ his gag order.
