Trump Lawyer Alina Habba on New York Fraud Verdict: Brace for Impact

Credit: BBC

Buckle up, folks! Trump’s attorney, Alina Habba, isn’t exactly popping the champagne in anticipation of the outcome of the New York civil fraud trial against the former president. In fact, she’s already eyeing the nearest exit, with expectations of an unfavorable decision looming on the horizon.

In a candid interview with Newsmax, Habba didn’t mince words. “If I could file the appeal now, I would,” she declared, her tone a mix of frustration and resignation. “There’s no surprises coming here.”

And that’s not all. Brace yourselves for the aftermath, because Habba promises to make some noise. “I’ll be loud and booming right after the decision,” she quipped. “I don’t have high hopes.”

The legal showdown began when New York Attorney General Letitia James (D) threw down the gauntlet in 2022, accusing Trump of cooking the books to snag tax breaks and insurance perks for the Trump Organization’s myriad assets. James argues it’s the smoking gun of fraud, but Trump ain’t budging, sticking to his guns and denying any wrongdoing.

The courtroom drama stretched on for two months, featuring a star-studded cast of characters including Trump’s former lawyer, top brass from the organization, his adult offspring, and the man himself. With Judge Arthur Engoron already dropping the bombshell that Trump committed fraud in his real estate empire, the stage is set for the final act.

According to insiders, Engoron is slated to deliver his verdict this Friday, and it’s not looking like a walk in the park for Trump. On top of a jaw-dropping $370 million financial smackdown, James is gunning to bar Trump from the Big Apple’s real estate scene for good measure.

But wait, there’s more! Trump’s squad, led by Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.), has been crying foul, accusing Engoron of playing politics and James of bending the rules. Stefanik even took things up a notch, filing complaints against the dynamic duo.

Habba, who’s been wading through the murky waters of New York’s legal landscape, doesn’t pull any punches. “The corruption runs deep,” she declared, sounding more like a seasoned detective than a lawyer. “The Trump derangement syndrome, quite frankly, runs even deeper. They can’t see straight. They can’t apply law to fact.”

As the courtroom saga hurtles towards its climax, one thing’s for sure: It’s gonna be one heck of a ride. So fasten your seatbelts, folks, and hold on tight—we’re in for a wild legal rollercoaster.
