Verdict in Trump’s New York fraud trial delayed until early to mid-February Judge Arthur Engoron had aimed to deliver verdict on potential $370m fine in Trump Organization case by end of January. We all know the result as it was decided before the trial began, illegally as usual. The Witch Hunt continues. These clowns have caused over half the population to realize there is no justice in the U.S. The Courts are mostly political machines now, usually to hurt Conservatives while letting Leftists do as they please with the minimum of penalties.
‘The New York judge Arthur Engoron had initially said he would aim to deliver a verdict on the potential $370m fine by 31 January. “I will do my best” to meet the deadline, he said on 11 January after the trial’s closing arguments – Guardian
New York State Attorney Kevin Wallace, representing the Attorney General’s office, informed the presiding judge that they are not currently aware of any perjury plea deal in progress. This revelation follows a report by the New York Times suggesting that Allen Weisselberg, the former CFO of the Trump Organization, is in negotiations with the Manhattan District Attorney’s office for a plea deal that would entail admitting to perjury in the ongoing fraud case.
Um you can’t use anything from another trial as evidence. This “trial” is absurd. The judge is a farce. You need a spreadsheet to keep track of all the grounds for appeal and conflicts of interest- James
Both cases involve former President Donald Trump, accused by the New York Attorney General of fraud in a civil case that could potentially dismantle his real estate empire. Simultaneously, the Manhattan District Attorney has charged him with 37 counts related to mishandling business documents in a criminal case. With Trump as a defendant in both cases, the recent development regarding Weisselberg’s potential perjury plea deal has raised questions about the credibility of the proceedings.
How The Left is covering it: Judge Arthur Engoron, who is set to deliver a verdict in Donald Trump‘s civil fraud trial, has ordered attorneys in the case to give him details about possible perjury by former Trump Organization Chief Financial Officer Allen Weisselberg. See fast clip below

In response to the report, New York Supreme Court Justice Arthur Engoron requested input from both parties involved. He expressed a keen interest in understanding whether Weisselberg is changing his testimony and if he is admitting to lying under oath during the trial. Furthermore, Justice Engoron sought guidance on how to address this matter, including the timing of a final decision.

Attorney Kevin Wallace, representing the New York Attorney General’s office, asserted that their fraud case team is not aware of any ongoing plea deal. However, he acknowledged the possibility of other attorneys within the office being cross-designated to the Manhattan District Attorney’s office. Wallace urged the judge to expedite the issuance of a final judgment, emphasizing that waiting for the resolution of perjury allegations is unnecessary, given Weisselberg’s already questionable credibility.
Wallace argued that Weisselberg’s testimony had been contradicted by others and deemed not credible, making any further delay in the proceedings unwarranted. He asserted that negotiations over a potential plea agreement could extend indefinitely, causing unnecessary delays.

In response, defense attorneys addressed the issue of perjury disclosure. Alina Habba, representing Weisselberg in the civil case, stated that she is not involved in the criminal proceedings. She argued that no further action is required and that matters outside the official record, such as media reports, should not influence the court’s perception of Weisselberg’s credibility.
Habba emphasized Weisselberg’s entitlement to a presumption of innocence and deemed it improper for the judge to presume guilt based on anonymous sources’ claims in a news article. She highlighted the need for the court to rely solely on the evidence presented during the trial.
Additionally, defense attorney Cliff Robert, representing Trump Organization executives Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, criticized the judge for considering “rumors” and labeled the court’s request for comments on speculative media accounts as unprecedented and inappropriate. Robert argued that, after years of investigation and a thorough trial, the court should only consider evidence presented during the proceedings.

He also questioned the court’s legal authority to take judicial notice of news articles, suggesting that the judge’s interest in speculative stories could compromise his impartiality. Robert pointed out the case of the state’s witness, Michael Cohen, who had previously admitted to lying before a federal judge but was not held in falsus in uno, challenging the consistency of the court’s approach to perjury issues.
As the Trump Organization fraud case unfolds, the courtroom drama surrounding potential perjury negotiations and the judge’s response adds complexity to an already high-profile legal battle. The resolution of these issues will undoubtedly shape the trajectory of the proceedings and impact the credibility of key witnesses. We know the cases will go on as long as the Deep State wants. This is all to interfere with the election and cause President Trump the maximum amount of trouble and income loss in lawyer fees before November. Every dollar he has to spend on these cases, is a dollar he cannot spend up against the far-superior bank roll of Biden and the Deep State machine, which are determined to destroy the man, and American freedom in the process.
