Former President Donald Trump’s attorney recently fumed at New York Attorney General Letitia James and Judge Arthur Engoron against his various foes via Media Ite.
It has been noted that Alina Habba spoke to reporters during the break in Trump’s court testimony for his alleged civil business fraud. The proceeding has been a contentious affair since Trump used his testimony to go after Engoron again, the judge warned the former president’s legal team he’d kick Trump off the witness stand if they couldn’t rein him in, and there was an intense moment when Engoron shut down Habba for protesting his instruction that Trump stick to answering questions.
In her remarks, Habba went off on James’ prebuttal to Trump’s court appearance, then turned her attention to Engoron.
“I was told to sit down today. I was yelled at, and I’ve had a judge who is unhinged slamming a table. Let me be very clear, I don’t tolerate that in my life, and I am not going to tolerate it here. And you know what? You shouldn’t either. Because not every American citizen gets to have a camera and a microphone, and what I’m seeing is such a demise of the American judicial system and democracy.”
After several complaints about James and the case against her client, Habba took questions from the press, and she was asked about Engoron’s warning that he will “draw every negative inference that I can” if Trump doesn’t get under control.
Habba’s answer: “The judge doesn’t like when President Trump explains what actually happened because it’s not good for his narrative.”
“This is a judge who clearly has an issue if you’ve seen his behavior with me, you’ve seen his behavior with the president today. He has a clear issue with facts that are not good for the case because he already predetermined [the outcome]… So right now, we are sitting here doing a whole dance and the only thing they want are facts that are bad for Trump. That’s why is silencing him. That’s why he’s telling him short answers and why he’s clearly enraged, his face is red. He came in hot and he doesn’t know how to handle him.”
