Democratic Party leaders have pursued Trump ever since he memorably descended an escalator and declared his candidacy for president. They despise him and everyone else who strays from the globalist tractor beam that Marxist powers have ensnared the United States in and puts America and Americans first.
However, they have had very few triumphs against him, with the exception of getting him banned from social media, which is a massive victory, but he circumvented that by creating his own Twitter-like firm.
In April of this year, a New York judge held Donald Trump in contempt and fined him $10,000 a day for refusing to turn over records to investigators pursuing a broad financial fraud probe on behalf of Letitia James, the New York attorney general.
Justice Arthur Engoron of the New York Supreme Court ruled, “Mr. Trump, I know you take your business seriously, and I take mine seriously, I hereby hold you in civil contempt and fine you $10,000 a day.”
Alina Habba, Trump’s attorney at the time, stated that they will file an appeal.
“We respectfully disagree with the court’s decision today. All of the documents, as I explained, responsive to the subpoena, were already produced to the attorney general month’s ago,” Habba stated.
As a result of Trump’s failure to comply with a court-ordered deadline for producing subpoenaed records by March 31, James filed a motion for contempt, alleging she had no documents to produce.
Andrew Amer, an attorney for James’ office at the time, stated, “The March 31 deadline came and went and we received zero documents. Is Mr. Trump thumbing his nose at this court’s order?”

Alina Habba, an attorney for Trump, said she oversaw the search for the documents, including visiting Mar-a-Lago to interview Trump about them.
“There is simply nothing more for him to provide. It was already provided. So your honor, how is President Trump in contempt?” Habba questioned.
Engoron seemed to think that explanation raised further questions about Trump’s reaction to the subpoena, asking Habba why she had not previously documented the Mar-a-Lago interview.
“I feel like there’s an 800-pound gorilla in the room, and that is, why don’t we have an affidavit from him?” Engoron questioned, adding, “There is a difference between saying something and saying something under oath.” CONTINUE READING…
