(GoRealNewsNow.com) – Further proving that a biased justice system will always be rotten, former President Donald Trump made a resolute claim insisting that he was eager to take the stand in his civil fraud trial in New York. However, he cited the restrictive gag order imposed by Judge Arthur Engoron as the reason why he ultimately couldn’t do so.
In a fiery statement posted on his Truth Social platform, Trump asserted, “I wanted to testify on Monday, despite the fact that I already testified successfully, answering all questions having to do with the Fake, No Victims, No Jury lawsuit, thrown at me by the Corrupt Racist A.G., Letitia James, and presided over by a Trump-hating judge who suffers from a massive case of Trump Derangement Syndrome, and is a puppet for the CROOKED A.G.”
Trump went on to express his frustration with the gag order, claiming that it “totally took away my constitutional right to defend myself” and declared that his legal team is in the process of appealing this decision.
He emphasized, “How would you like to be a witness and not be allowed free and honest speech? THE TRIAL IS RIGGED. I DID NOTHING WRONG!!!”
Interestingly, on Sunday, Trump had announced that he wouldn’t testify, citing the strength of the evidence in his case.
Trump’s attorney, Chris Kise, weighed in on the matter, blaming the limited gag order for Trump’s decision not to testify. Kise stated, “There is really nothing more to say to a Judge who has imposed an unconstitutional gag order and thus far appears to have ignored President Trump’s testimony and that of everyone else involved in the complex financial transactions at issue in the case.”
Meanwhile, Judge Engoron revealed on Tuesday that he would permit Letitia James, the State Attorney, to call two witnesses during the state’s rebuttal after Trump’s defense team concludes its case.
Kise argued that the government had withheld these witnesses, while State Attorney Kevin Wallace clarified that the rebuttal witnesses, namely former Trump Organization executive Kevin Sneddon and Cornell professor Eric Lewis, would solely discuss arguments made in court.
Kise, however, contended that they would be “filling a hole” left by the defense team’s lack of evidence.
Engoron, despite the debate, ultimately saw “no reason not to allow these two purported experts to testify.” Trump’s legal team even hinted at the possibility of presenting an additional witness after the state’s rebuttal.
