Letitia James’ new warning to Donald Trump

After another day in former President Donald Trump’s $250 million civil fraud trial, New York Attorney General Letitia James Trump is warning that “the Donald Trump show is over.”

While speaking to the press outside In the courtroom on Wednesday, James addressed the former president’s comments as she warned him that she would not be bullied. Although it is unclear exactly which comments James is referring to, as Trump has spoken negatively about her both online and to reporters in a New York courtroom this week, James claims that the comments made were baseless and “nothing more than a political stunt.” .

“Trump’s comments were offensive, baseless, and devoid of any facts or evidence. “What they were were comments that unfortunately incited violence, comments that I would describe as race-baiting, comments that unfortunately appealed to the deepest levels of our humanity,” James said.

“This case was filed simply because it was a case where individuals were involved in blatant fraudulent practices and I will not stand by and allow anyone to undermine the law and ultimately I will not be bullied and that is Mr. Trump no more.” “Here. The Donald Trump show is over. This was nothing more than a political stunt,” James added.

Although Trump is known for frequently relying on his Truth Social account to discredit accusations and accusations against him, James is determined to push back against the former president’s constant statements.

James’ comments came after Trump was issued a gag order by Judge Engoron on Tuesday that said the former president was not allowed to comment on Engoron’s court staff – after Trump attacked an employee at Truth Social.

In a now-deleted post on Truth Social, Trump shared a photo of attorney Allison Greenfield with Democratic Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer. The former president argued that this was grounds for dismissal of the case and suggested without evidence that Greenfield and Schumer had a romantic relationship.

“Personal attacks on members of my court staff are unacceptable and inappropriate, and I will not tolerate it,” Engoron said. “Consider this statement a hoax order prohibiting anyone involved from posting, emailing, or speaking publicly about my employees.”

While the civil fraud trial continues to largely determine the size of the penalty, it could result in Trump being barred from doing business in New York, having his property removed from his control or being forced to pay a fine totaling hundreds of millions of dollars According to Lisa Rubin, an attorney and MSNBC legal analyst, suggested that Trump would continue to be “a bully” despite the lockdown order.

In one Series of posts on XOn Twitter, formerly Twitter, Rubin said: “He may now be subject to a gag order regarding judicial staff, but in his opinion that may not be a major obstacle. After all, Trump may not need Truth Social if he can try to intimidate judicial staff.” All participants in the trial face to face and without saying a word in the courtroom?

“Despite the confidentiality requirement – which, again, is limited only to the judge’s staff – Trump is back on Truth Social this morning with a post aimed at New York Attorney General Tish James and filled with words from a legal Trump bingo card.” said Rubin.

Newsweek has reached out to legal experts for additional comment.
