NextImg:‘They Will Not Get Away With It’: Trump Attorney Unloads After Stunning New York Fraud Verdict

 Former President Donald Trump’s attorney Alina Habba slammed Judge Arthur Engoron and New York Attorney General Letitia James on Friday, following a stunning judgement against Trump in a controversial civil fraud case brought by James.

Engoron ordered Trump to pay more than $350 million, barred him from doing business in New York for three years, and fined his sons, Don Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, more than $4 million each.

“I think the biggest message I can give the American people tonight is that he’s not going to get away with it,” Habba said of Engoron on Fox News. “Letitia James is not going to get away with it; the Biden administration is not going to get away with it.”

Now that the trial was over and she felt “free to speak,” Habba made it clear that the legal team will “come at them,” “come hard,” and “will literally fight until the truth comes out.”

“They will not get away with it,” the attorney continued. “President Trump has done nothing wrong. All he has done is win a campaign, and that is scaring them because they know when he goes back in November 2024. He is going to clean house, and that is truly the problem. It’s not about Mar-a-Lago’s worth.”

Trump was accused by James of making misleading financial statements to banks to secure better terms on loans. The defense team stood by the evaluations and highlighted that all the loans were repaid and there were no victims of the supposed financial fraud.

Habba has some harsh words for James, whom she said was in the courtroom “with her shoes off” and sipping Starbucks.

“Miss James had her shoes off in court,” Habba said. “She had a Starbucks coffee in her hand, she wasn’t doing work, she wasn’t sitting at the council table, she was in the back with her shoes off and a coffee.”


“At the end of the day, we’re sitting there looking at this, going, ‘This is the state of our country.’ AGs are so comfortable in court that they know that they don’t even have to do the job, they don’t have to do the work, they’re going to let their people do it, they’re going to sit there and they’re going to win,” the attorney continued.

Habba added that the verdict will be appealed. “We will win in the appellate division,” she said. “I have zero concerns about that.”
