(TheLastPatriotNews.com) – In a pointed defense of his client, Alina Habba, the attorney for former President Donald Trump, blasted New York Attorney General Letitia James, remarking about her lack of intelligence during a Newsmax interview earlier in the week.
Habba’s comment was a direct response to the civil fraud lawsuit initiated by James, a Democrat, against Trump. The suit accuses him and his sons, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, of inflating their company’s asset values to secure favorable insurance rates and loans. James is seeking a substantial $250 million in penalties and is striving to prohibit Trump from engaging in business within New York.
Habba, undeterred in her defense, asserted, “She’s just not that bright. I’m sorry, I have to say it. I’ve seen their case, I’ve seen their lawyers. They don’t know what they’re talking about.” This claim was made amidst ongoing legal proceedings where Judge Arthur Engoron has already determined that fraud occurred, with the trial persisting to ascertain the resulting damages.
Contrary to the allegations, Habba maintains that Trump’s conduct was lawful and comparable to standard loan acquisition practices. She challenged the notion that there was anything improper about a bank valuing an asset based on the loan amount rather than its actual worth, suggesting that this is a common occurrence when securing loans.
Habba expressed her frustration with the case, likening it to a circus and insinuating that the absurdity of the situation was beyond expression on television. She underscored the insanity of the allegations and implied that anyone rational would perceive the lawsuit as utterly baseless.
From the inception of the legal battle, Trump has consistently denounced both Judge Engoron and Attorney General James for a politically driven vendetta against him. During a testimonial that lasted approximately three and a half hours, Trump rebuked the judge and the attorney general while affirming his financial stature.
Trump stated his net worth to be billions above the figures in the financial statements, and he accused a state attorney of attempting to undermine and harm him as part of a series of political motives.
