A status report on former President Donald Trump’s ongoing civil fraud trial in New York has been released. Trump declared he is “confident” he will be cleared of all charges in a statement sent by his office.
Letitia James, the attorney general of New York, filed the complaint, which claims that Trump and his family have a history of dishonest business practices. The lawsuit aims to punish Trump billions of dollars and prevent him from conducting business in New York.
In addition to denying any misconduct, Trump has referred to the case as a “witch hunt.” Additionally, he has charged James with having political motivations.
October 2023 is when the trial is supposed to start.
As to Trump’s statement, he is “looking forward to the trial” and “confident that the truth will come out.” In addition, he stated that he is “not worried” about how the matter turns out.
It is anticipated that political analysts and legal experts will be keenly following the trial. It may have an impact on Trump’s future political career and is seen as a test of his legal weaknesses.
After a no-show from his former lawyer, Michael Cohen, at Tuesday’s proceedings, President Trump attended again on Wednesday and had this to say on Truth Social: “The New York State A.G., Letitia James, who sued me on a Statute NEVER USED BEFORE for such a case, had a bad day in the RIGGED trial going on in Lower Manhattan.”
