Elise Stefanik Goes for the Jugular With Ethics Complaint Against Unhinged Trump Fraud Trial Judge Engoran

Loading

by Discern Reporter

Rep. Elise Stefanik, a Republican from New York, has filed a complaint against a New York judge overseeing the civil fraud trial involving former President Trump. In the complaint, Stefanik accuses Judge Arthur Engoron of displaying “inappropriate bias and judicial intemperance” towards Trump and calls for his resignation.

Stefanik argues that Engoron has shown a “clear judicial bias” against Trump and has violated several rules in the state’s judicial conduct code. She asserts that the judge’s behavior is unacceptable and undermines the defendant’s rights to due process and a fair trial, particularly considering Trump’s status as the front-runner in the 2024 GOP presidential primary.

The complaint echoes arguments made by Trump’s legal team throughout the case, including the claim that there were no victims of Trump’s business dealings and that Engoron unfairly prejudged the case. Prior to the trial, Engoron ruled that Trump, the Trump Organization, and several executives were liable for fraud. This decision jeopardized Trump’s business licenses and iconic properties, although a New York appeals court has temporarily halted the cancellation of the licenses until it hears Trump’s case.

Throughout the ongoing seven-week trial, Engoron has emerged as an unexpected adversary of Trump. Trump himself expressed his belief that the judge would rule against him, citing a history of unfavorable decisions. Engoron repeatedly objected to Trump’s lengthy and digressive responses to questions, urging his attorney to keep him on track and reminding Trump that the trial was not a political rally.

The relationship between Trump and Engoron further deteriorated after the judge issued a limited gag order preventing parties involved in the trial from discussing his principal law clerk. Trump and his team have accused the clerk of bias and referred to her as “Trump-hating.” Stefanik’s complaint addresses the clerk in detail, highlighting her alleged political donations to Democratic causes and criticizing the gag order as an infringement on the defendant’s constitutional rights.

This scumbag judge needs to be removed from the bench and disbarred asap.

Letitia James Trying to Nail Trump for ‘Losses No One Ever Suffered,’ Former Fed Prosecutor Says

This bogus case gets more comical by the minute.

Letitia James, she from da hood !!
She has no idea who her father is. It
could be one of several dozen hoodrats

Her father is actually an old leader of the Black Panthers. He was, and still is, a ranking member of the Black Power movement

Her father is communism and her mother is fascism.

I guess mobs could amass at his home, block the street, chant all day and all night and threaten violence against him and his family. It’s been established by the left that that is OK.

The left thinks it’s pretty funny to trample Constitutional rights, due process and common sense to try and keep this embarrassing excuse for a *President in office. Cheating, fraud, propaganda and fascist muscle is all made necessary by the Democrat’s massive failures and the threat to our national security they have created.

Trump is not on trial; the Constitution, the republic and our nation is.

This judge needs to be totally removed from the Bench

11/30/23 – NY court denies Trump claims that trial judge’s wife posts anti-Trump rhetoric on social media

New York court officials have knocked down Donald Trump’s angry social media claims that the wife of Judge Arthur Engoron, who’s presiding over his civil fraud trial, has been posting anti-Trump rhetoric on X.

Engoron’s wife does not have an X – formerly Twitter – account, according to a spokesperson for the state court system.

“Justice Engoron’s wife has sent no social media posts regarding the former president. They are not hers,” state Office of Court Administration spokesperson Al Baker said in a statement to CNN.

Trump has reposted multiple claims from a far-right activist that accused Engoron’s wife of writing negative stories about the former president. He has also posted his own comments on Truth Social accusing her, including one that said: “Another from Judge Engoron’s Wife, who is almost out of control as he is. How low can you get?”

The account referenced has since been taken down.

Trump has doubled down on his demands for a mistrial…


The evidence being a bogus Twitter/X account with conspicuous anti-Trump posts, which were reposted by a Trump troll, and then disappeared…

The court needs to double down on that sort of bullshit. Trump is pitting propaganda against reality, with the intention of neutralizing the legal process that threatens him. He’s personally targeting court officials and their family members, claiming he has a right to defend himself.

This is the guy you’d return to the White House?

It’s fortunate there’s that court order requiring Twitter to provide so much account and messaging data. I’m sure everyone wants to get to the bottom of this.

It’s no more ridiculous than saying “Oh, that IS Engoron’s wife”, just because Twitter posts were made using her name.

Twitter is crawling with bot accounts and spoofed identities. The technical guardrails are very low, and the resources and skills of foreign intelligence services are behind many social media disinformation operations.

I won’t even go into the absurdity of thinking someone like Laura Loomer is “an investigative journalist.” Even Marjorie Taylor Greene has identified her as “a documented liar”.

It’s hilarious how the media is saying “oh that’s not Engoron’s wife, because he said so!”

If it wasn’t her own account, she couldn’t have deleted it. She wouldn’t have had the login password or access.

Even Marjorie Taylor Greene publicly identified Laura Loomer as ‘Unstable And A Documented Liar’.

Loomer’s response:

“I know a lot of people don’t like me, but that’s their problem, not mine…I have proven my loyalty to President Trump countless times over, and even if other people try to malign me and undermine President Trump’s wishes, I will continue to be a ride-or-die Trump supporter.”

Cultist to the core.

She is as much a scumbag as her perverted Maoist judge husband.

12/01/23 – Federal judge rejects Trump’s immunity claims in 2020 election interference case

WASHINGTON — Donald Trump is not immune from prosecution in his election interference case in Washington, a federal judge ruled Friday, knocking down the Republican’s bid to derail the case charging him with plotting to overturn the 2020 presidential election.

U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan’s decision amounts to a sharp rejection to challenges the Trump defense team had raised to the four-count indictment in advance of a trial expected to center on the Republican’s multi-pronged efforts to undo the election won by Democrat Joe Biden.

Though the judge turned aside Trump’s expansive view of presidential power, the order might not be the final say in the legal fight. Lawyers for Trump, who has denied any wrongdoing, are expected to quickly appeal to fight what they say an unsettled legal question.

Of course they’re appealing. They’ll appeal everything appealable to delay judgement as long as possible. Tens of millions are being thrown at the court system, but contributions are covering it.

In her ruling, Chutkan said the office of the president “does not confer a lifelong ‘get-out-of-jail-free’ pass.”

“Former Presidents enjoy no special conditions on their federal criminal liability,” Chutkan wrote. “Defendant may be subject to federal investigation, indictment, prosecution, conviction, and punishment for any criminal acts undertaken while in office.”

Why does that even need to be said?

Chutkan also rejected Trump’s claims that the indictment violates the former president’s free speech rights. Lawyers for Trump had argued that he was within his First Amendment rights to challenge the outcome of the election and to allege that it had been tainted by fraud, and they accused prosecutors of attempting to criminalize political speech and political advocacy.

But Chutkan said “it is well established that the First Amendment does not protect speech that is used as an instrument of a crime.”

“Defendant is not being prosecuted simply for making false statements … but rather for knowingly making false statements in furtherance of a criminal conspiracy and obstructing the electoral process,” she wrote.

An attorney for Trump declined to comment Friday evening.

Her ruling comes the same day the federal appeals court in Washington ruled that lawsuits brought by Democratic lawmakers and police officers who have accused Trump of inciting the U.S. Capitol riot on Jan. 6, 2021, can move forward…

Of course they are appealing, because this is nothing but political theater with the one and only intention of knocking Trump out of the Presidential campaign before he can mop the floor with Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden… again.

The law, due process and the Constitution mean nothing to these Democrats.


If thats Dawn Marie she is one uuuuuuugly woman.

Trump is pitting propaganda against reality, with the intention of neutralizing the legal process that threatens him.

On the contrary, it is the leftists who try to suppress Trump’s 1st Amendment rights while THEY leak every lie they can conceive. This abuse of our justice system is an embarrassment before the entire world. Democrats have lowered us to the level of Nazis and the Soviet Union.
