BREAKING: Radical Anti-Trump Judge Engoron Denies Trump’s Request to Delay Enforcement of Penalties in NYC Fraud Case as Letitia James Threatens to Seize Trump’s Properties

They’re stealing Trump’s business and fortune.

Judge Engoron on Thursday denied Trump’s request to delay enforcement of the $355 million in penalties as New York Attorney General Letitia James threatens to seize Trump’s buildings.

Engoron last Friday ordered Trump to pay more than a $355 million fine and barred Trump “from serving as an officer or director of any New York corporation or other legal entity in New York for a period of three years.”

Engoron claimed Trump and each of the defendants “participated in aiding and abetting the conspiracy to commit insurance fraud by their individual acts in falsifying business records and valuations, causing materially fraudulent SFCs to be intentionally submitted to insurance companies.”

Eric Trump and Don Jr. were ordered to pay $4,013,024 each.

Trump’s attorney Robert Clifford requested a 30-day delay to allow for an “orderly post-judgment process.”

“To deprive Defendants of the opportunity to submit a proposed counter-judgment would be contrary to fundamental fairness and due process,” Robert Clifford argued to the Court on Wednesday.

Clifford argued that Letitia James denied Trump due process.

“The Attorney General has not filed any motion on notice, nor moved to settle the proposed Judgment,” Clifford Robert said Wednesday’s filing. “Her unseemly rush to memorialize a ‘judgment’ violates all accepted practice in New York state court.”

After ruling against Trump every step of the way, Engoron denied the request. Of course he did.

“You have failed to explain, much less justify, any basis for a stay,” Engoron wrote in an email on Thursday, according to ABC News. “I am confident that the Appellate Division will protect your appellate rights.

Excerpt from ABC News:

The judge in former President Donald Trump’s civil fraud case has rejected a request from the defense to delay the enforcement of the penalties in the case.

The defendants had asked Judge Arthur Engoron to delay the enforcement of the penalties by 30 days to allow for an “orderly post-judgment process.”

“You have failed to explain, much less justify, any basis for a stay,” Engoron wrote in an email posted Thursday to the court docket. “I am confident that the Appellate Division will protect your appellate rights.

Trump last week was ordered to pay a $354.8 million fine plus interest and was barred from leading any New York company for three years. His sons Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump were also fined $4 million apiece and barred for two years.

The defense’s request for a delay in the penalties stemmed from a dispute about the case’s judgment order, the court document that, at the end of a trial, starts the clock for the penalties in a case. Lawyers for New York Attorney General Letitia James submitted a draft judgment on Tuesday, prompting criticism from Trump’s defense lawyer Clifford Robert.
