Trump’s Lawyer Vows Retaliation Following Shocking Fraud Decision

( – Alina Habba, one of the more prominent members of former president Donald Trump’s legal team, had fighting words following the verdict handed down by Judge Arthur Engoron in the civil fraud case filed by New York Attorney General Letitia James against the former chief executive.

“They will not get away with it,” Habba said, referring to Judge Engoron, AG James, and President Joe Biden, calling the decision a “manifest injustice” and a “politically fueled witch hunt” against the former commander-in-chief.

“We will come at them, we will come hard,” Habba said of the following steps the Trump legal team will take in response to Engoron’s decision.

Judge Engoron ordered Trump to cough up penalties close to $355 million over fraud charges the former president had already been found guilty of in September last year. He also ordered Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump to fork out more than $4 million each in penalties. The decision also bars all three from holding any sort of leadership or decision-making positions at any of the family’s businesses in New York for a period of three years. In addition, both Trump and the Trump Organization have also been banned from taking out a loan from any bank or financial institution registered in the state of New York for a three-year period.

Trump, aided by his sons, was accused by AG James of fraudulently submitting overinflated values for a number of their real estate properties over the period of several years, ostensibly in an effort to secure more favorable terms when dealing with banks and other financial institutions.

Despite the decision, Habba maintains that her client did not commit any wrongdoing.

“President Trump has done nothing wrong,” she said, claiming that the whole case was about Trump’s political enemies being “scared” that Trump would “clean house” once he “goes back [to the White House] in November 2024.” Habba also maintained that she has “zero concerns” about Trump’s appeal of Engoron’s decision.

“We will win in the appellate division,” Habba said.
