Judge Bans Trump From Doing Business In NY For 3 Years, Fines Him $354M

Former president and current GOP primary frontrunner Donald Trump has been ordered to pay more than $354 million in the blatantly politicized civil fraud trial against him in New York City, and has also been barred from doing business in New York for three years.

According to the Friday 92-page ruling from the clearly biased anti-Trump judge, Arthur Engoron, the former president will be fined $354 million, banned from conducting business in New York for three years and banned from serving as an officer or director at any New York corporation or legal entity for three years.

Engoron also barred Trump and the Trump Organization from applying for loans from any financial institution registered with the New York Department of Financial Services for three years.

These bans were also extended to apply to Trump’s two adult sons, Eric Trump and Donald Trump Jr., who Engoron also fined $4 million each for what the far-left judge claimed as “personal profits from the fraud.”

Former Trump Organization Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Allen Weisselberg was also fined $1 million.

Trump’s attorney Alina Habba has already vowed to appeal the ruling.

“They will not get away with it,” Habba said during an appearance on Fox News. “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.”

“We will win in the appellate division,” she added. “I have zero concerns about that.”

This verdict was the result of a trial where Trump was not even allowed to defend himself.

Engoron ruled in a summary judgment before the trial even began that Trump committed fraud, without even hearing any defense from Trump and his lawyers. He then held this trial to determine a punishment for the former president, where Trump was barely allowed to defend himself once again. Despite testimony from Trump’s creditors who confirmed that they were not defrauded in any way and their partnership with Trump was extremely beneficial to their businesses, Engoron decided that his feelings outweighed the facts.

The ruling is very likely to be overturned at some point because of the judge’s clear bias, which was apparent long before the verdict. At the start of the trial, the Democrat judge was seen smirking and laughing for the media in the courtroom.

“Just smiling and laughing as they turn our country into a third world banana republic,” commentator Greg Price wrote in a post on X.

Engoron also falsely claimed that Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort property — the only property in Palm Beach, Florida, that faces the waterfront on both the ocean and the waterway — was worth only $18 million. The Democrat judge’s claim came despite the fact that nearby land a fraction of the size of Mar-a-Lago was being sold for hundreds of millions of dollars, and those properties didn’t include a massive beachfront mansion like Mar-a-Lago. Trump previously valued the property at between $426 million and $612 million.

Additional evidence of clear bias in this case was uncovered last year, where Engoron’s top clerk Allison Greenfield was found to have violated Section 100.5 of the Judicial Conduct code by donating thousands of dollars to Democrat politicians. The law prohibits judicial employees from donating in excess of the $500 per calendar year limit to politicians.

Greenfield was also discovered to be a close friend of Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), which critics say further proves her bias.
