Alina Habba, a lawyer for former President Donald Trump, criticized Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Arthur Engoron, accusing him of bias and unprofessional behavior during Trump’s testimony.
She also attacked New York Attorney General Letitia James, claiming the case is politically motivated.
Alina Habba told reporters that Engoron “has already predetermined that my client committed fraud before we even walked into this courtroom.” (Trending: Is It Time For Joe Biden To Drop Out Of 2024?)
“The BIGGEST waste of New York’s tax dollars ever.”

“‘I’m not here to hear what he has to say,’” she quoted Engoron as saying.
“Then why exactly am I being paid as an attorney, and why exactly are taxpayer dollars being used in this courtroom?” she said to reporters.
“The answer is very clear: because Miss James wants to stand right here like she did this morning and call my client a liar, call the company fraudulent and make a name for herself,” Habba added from the courthouse steps.

Habba highlighted alleged corruption in the courtroom and criticized the state’s case against Trump, stating that their star witness, Michael Cohen, lacked credibility.
Additionally, she emphasized Trump’s real estate expertise and suggested that James underestimated him. (Trending: CNN Poll Is Bad News For Biden)
Trump’s attorney continued, “She [James] said this morning that the numbers don’t lie and they won’t lie in this case. Well, Miss James, I have a message for you: The numbers didn’t lie when you ran for governor, and that’s why you dropped out, and the numbers don’t lie when President Trump runs for office in 2024, and those numbers are loud and clear.”
Habba called out Engoron and his staff for their “corruption in courtrooms where attorneys are gagged, where attorneys are not allowed to say what they need to say to protect their clients.”
“Everyone has a right in this country to get up and put a defense. I don’t care who you are. You have a right to hire a lawyer who can put objections on the record. You have a right to hire a lawyer who can stand up and say something when they see something wrong, but I was told to sit down today, I was yelled at and I’ve had a judge who was unhinged slamming a table. Let me be very clear: I don’t tolerate that in my life. I’m not going to tolerate it here.”
