Written by on November 16, 2023

Former US president, Donald Trump is asking for a mistrial in his civil fraud case alleging the judge who will decide the case is biased against him.Trumps attorneys filed a motion Wednesday, November 15, saying the evidence of apparent and actual bias is tangible and overwhelming. The motion cites Judge Arthur Engoron and his law clerk, who has been the subject of multiple complaints from Trumps attorneys and the former president himself, resulting in a gag order from the judge.Trumps attorneys argue the judge has unfairly ruled against Trump, made comments during the trial they allege show bias and has exceeded his discretion is working with his clerk, who has donated to organizations they allege are supporting New York Attorney General Letitia James and others that oppose Trump in excess of contribution limits.In this case the evidence of apparent and actual bias is tangible and overwhelming. Such evidence, coupled with an unprecedented departure from standard judicial procedure, has tainted these proceedings and a mistrial is warranted, Trumps lawyers wrote in the motion. Engoron signaled that he will deny the motion, initially advising Trumps attorney that he shouldnt file it but then saying he could file it in writing. Judge Engoron has defended his communications with his law clerk saying he has an unfettered right to discuss legal issues with her and noted that when campaigning, which his clerk was at one point, there are different limits to political donations.Engorons gag order prohibits Trump and his attorneys from making any statements about court staff and specifically about communications he has with his law clerk. Trump has been fined twice for violating the gag order. A spokesperson for the attorney generals office said;Once again, Donald Trump is trying to dismiss the truth and the facts, but the numbers and evidence dont lie. Donald Trump is now being held accountable for the years of fraud he committed and the incredible ways he lied to enrich himself and his family. He can keep trying to distract from his fraud, but the truth always comes out. The post Donald Trump files for a mistrial in the NY civil fraud case, saying judge is biased appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
