On Monday, Democratic New York Attorney General Letitia James was caught on camera smirking as Donald Trump Jr. took the stand in his father’s civil trial.
Former President Trump has made several appearances in court defending the Trump Organization in the last several weeks, as James has sought to revoke its New York business license and leveled fraud charges against the former president and his two adult sons, who were named co-defendants in the case.
Just before Trump Jr. gave his testimony, however, a camera caught a glimpse of James looking a bit gleeful. James has been vocally opposed to Trump and repeatedly campaigned on promises to prosecute the former president. She has since claimed that the charges against Trump are not politically motivated.
“Mrs. James wanted a headline. She campaigned on this, remember, before she was even the attorney general. That’s how she got the attorney general role. She campaigned on Trump, so she had to follow through, and she should really dismiss this case, it’s making her look bad, frankly, and the city needs her attention elsewhere,” Habba said.
Trump’s fight between James and Engoron has had intense consequences to the point that Engoron slapped a gag order against the former president after he publicly lashed out against the court.
Trump’s civil trial is in addition to the four trials he will face next year, between federal charges against him brought by special counsel Jack Smith regarding his actions leading up to Jan. 6 and his handling of classified documents, the New York case involving Trump’s 2016 hush money payments to Stormy Daniels and the Georgia case involving efforts to reverse the 2020 results.
