A woman’s attempt to approach Donald Trump during his civil fraud trial led to her swift removal from the courtroom by officers and subsequent charges of contempt of court, according to officials.
During one of Donald Trump’s numerous ongoing trials, an unidentified woman appealed to the former president in a desperate plea for assistance, though the cause of her outburst remains unknown.
“Help me! Save me!” the woman yelled as officers escorted her to the first floor, cuffing her amid her cries for help, a courthouse source revealed.
The woman, whose identity remains undisclosed but was confirmed to be a court employee by a state courts spokesman, found herself in the back of a police car following the incident.
“Who got arrested? We didn’t know anything about it. You know who should be arrested? The attorney general for what she’s doing,” Trump said when queried about the incident before his departure from the courthouse. He appeared unaware of the particulars of the incident.
Trump’s appearance in court on Wednesday marked the second consecutive day of the $250 million civil fraud trial against him. Although not mandated to attend, the former commander in chief chose to make an appearance in the lower Manhattan courtroom for several days of the ongoing trial, now advancing into its third week.
Accompanying the former president in this legal quagmire are his sons, Eric and Don Jr., alongside the Trump Organization, all entangled in allegations of a decades-spanning scheme. Attorney General Letitia James accuses them of a grandiose exaggeration of Trump’s net worth, allegedly inflating figures by as much as $3.6 billion annually.
