Up to this point, Trump has had every reason to believe he was being railroaded in this trial… and he has said so openly.
So long as that continued, he had no reason to change his opinion of the proceedings or of the judge himself. One of Trump’s objections was the fact that the court had not responded to the appellate court’s Statute of Limitations rulings which found (significantly) in Trump’s favor.
As a result, because so much of the case brought against him relied on events that took place prior to 2014, Trump believes the case against him is now very much diminished.
This video is Trump briefly expanding on the implications of that ruling, and asking his lawyer to expand a little more.
AG James, for once, did NOT stop to preen before the cameras. She took no questions after court was adjourned.
No explanation was given for why she suddenly had nothing to say. Perhaps our readers can think of a few.
And if you’re wondering why we called him the ‘grinning judge’… after seeing him mug for the camera in this clip, we were prepared for him to be everything Trump accused him of being.
Wow. This video from inside the courtroom speaks volumes. Watch NY AG Leticia James stare at Trump. She looks like an obsessive creep. Then watch the Judge smile for his moment in the sun. These people are deranged, Marxist tyrants. pic.twitter.com/s11O9kshEP
