The fraud case in New York City against former President Trump continues to be a circus and now Judge Arthur Engoron is demanding that former First Daughter Ivanka Trump testify.
During the case we’ve seen a woman arrested for approaching the former President, a ridiculous assessment of Mar-a-Largo, a gag order resulting in a $10,000 fine, and now Engoron wants to drag in Ivanaka.
In June of 2023, a New York appellate court dismissed a portion of Letitia James’ suit against the former president that targeted Ivanka.
From ABC News:
The New York Appellate Division’s First Department on Tuesday dismissed the claims against Ivanka Trump, ruling that the statute of limitations in her case had expired because she was no longer part of the Trump Organization by 2016.
“The allegations against defendant Ivanka Trump do not support any claims that accrued after February 6, 2016. Thus, all claims against her should have been dismissed as untimely,” the decision said.
New York Supreme Court Judge Arthur Engoron decided Friday that her dismissal from the case doesn’t absolve her of taking the stand after being subpoenaed by the attorney general’s office. Her testimony won’t be scheduled before Nov. 1, to give her lawyers time to appeal, the trial judge ruled.
The former President was furious and wrote a long post on his social media platform Truth Social.
“My daughter, Ivanka, was released from this Fake Letitia James case by the Court of Appeals, but this Trump Hating, Unhinged Judge, who ruled me guilty before this Witch Hunt Trial even started, couldn’t care less about the fact that he was overturned,” Trump wrote. “I also won on Appeal on Statute of Limitations, but he refuses to accept their decision. I truly believe he is CRAZY, but certainly, at a minimum, CRAZED in his hatred of me. This case should have never started, but now must be dismissed. Financial Statements were LOW, NOT HIGH, had a 100% Disclaimer Clause, Banks were fully paid, “on time, on schedule,” with never even a minor default, there was NO VICTIM, EXCEPT ME. Any other Judge in the Country would have thrown this case out on day one. He’s an out of control “Nut Job,” who fined me $10,000 over a ridiculous Gag Order so that the publicity for the day would take over from the fact that Racist James and the Judge’s Star Witness admitted LYING TO CONGRESS on the stand – CASE OVER!”
