Trump: ‘My Civil Rights Have Been Violated’

Far-left Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Arthur Engoron ruled earlier this week that former President Donald Trump had committed fraud without even holding a trial — and the former president is now firing back at the “DERANGED” judge for his “radical attack.”

In a lengthy statement responding to the ruling, Trump blasted Engoron for “doing the bidding” of “corrupt” prosecutor Letitia James.

“The widespread, radical attack against me, my family, and my supporters has now devolved to new, un-American depths, at the hands of a DERANGED New York State Judge, doing the bidding of completely biased and corrupt ‘Prosecutor,’ Letitia James, who ran for office based on a ‘GET TRUMP’ platform, before even knowing anything about me,” Trump wrote in a statement issued after the ruling.

Engoron claimed in his ruling that Trump had committed fraud via inflating the value of his properties, despite the fact that a trial was never held and Trump was never given the opportunity to defend himself or call any witnesses. The ruling was a “summary judgement,” which included the judge making the shocking claim that the true value of Mar-a-Lago was only estimated at around $18 million.

The New York Post easily debunked that claim in an article about the ruling, writing: “He cited a basic Palm Beach Assessor valuation that ranged from $18 million to $28 million between 2011 and 2021, failing to take into consideration the fair market value. This valuation is a far cry from Trump’s 1985 purchase price of $10 million, a meager $8 million less than what the judge declared it was worth today.”

“To put it in perspective, a 2-acre wooded lot at 1980 S. Ocean Blvd., just 5 minutes from Mar-a-Lago, is currently listed for an eye-popping $150 million. Mar-a-Lago, situated at 1100 S. Ocean Blvd., dwarfs this lot tenfold and operates as a commercial business with around 500 members as part of the golf club,” the outlet added.

The New York Post also spoke with a “prominent” real estate broker in the area, who responded with a statement that read: “If that property were on the market today, I would list it at around $300 million, minimum… at least.”

Responding to the judge’s shocking conclusions, Trump argued that it was “a refutation of my status as the leading Candidate for President of the United States, including with a substantial lead over Joe Biden.”

He also noted that this decision is just the latest evidence that the left will “stop at nothing in trying to prevent me, and the American people, from winning the 2024 Presidential Election.”

Trump then pointed out that this type of political prosecution should not exist in the United States, no matter which political party the victim belongs to — arguing that “Corrupt and Highly Political Prosecutors and Judges are getting more and more desperate and dangerous” as he continues to perform strongly in the polls.

“The New York State Attorney General went before a Highly Politicized Democrat Judge, who refused allowing the case to go to the Commercial Division, where it belonged, to simply rule, despite all of the evidence on the contrary, that I committed fraud, which is both ridiculous and untrue,” he added. “As an example, this Democrat Operative valued Mar-a-Lago, the most spectacular and valuable property in Palm Beach, Florida, to be worth as low as $18 Million, when in actuality, it could be worth almost 100 times that amount. He hated everything about me at a level that I have never seen before.”

Trump concluded that his “Civil Rights have been violated” and called on an Appellate Court, “whether Federal or State,” to reverse “this horrible, un-American decision.”
