Trump fraud trial in NYC live updates: AG James declares ‘the Trump show is over,’ says she ‘will not be bullied’

October 5, 2023 in News by RBN Staff




New York Attorney General Letitia James said “the Trump show is over” as the fraud trial against him resumed Wednesday afternoon in NYC, with the former president conspicuously absent following a lunch break.

Donald Trump was slated to return to Mar-a-Lago after attending the first three days of the trial that began Monday, Oct. 2, where he took every opportunity to blast James, the case, the judge and even the judge’s clerk, prompting a partial gag order. Trump is not required to appear in court.

Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Arthur Engoron will decide Trump’s fate in the non-jury trial, which is scheduled to run until the end of December.

The $250 million fraud lawsuit brought by NY AG James accuses Trump, sons Eric and Don Jr., and the Trump Organization of a decades-long scheme, over-inflating the values of his many properties.

The former commander-in-chief has claimed that the charges against him amount to election interference in the 2024 presidential race.

Trump, Don Jr., and daughter Ivanka Trump are all on the witness list.
