NYC Judge Caught On Camera Bragging About What He’s Going To Do To Trump

The judge in charge of overseeing the New York real estate trial involving former President Donald Trump previously expressed confidence in possessing a “tool” to address juries that, in his subjective assessment, render results that he deems unreasonable.

A video that is currently being circulated depicts New York District Judge Arthur Engoron expressing to a college audience that throughout his tenure as a judge, he has repeatedly observed juries arriving at verdicts that he himself finds perplexing.

“I’ve had situations where I’m like, oh my… heaven’s sake, how could they have thought that? Well, I have a tool that I can deal with that. It’s called… judgment notwithstanding the verdict. I can say there is no possible way that a reasonable jury would have reached that conclusion.” Engoron asserted that it is highly improbable for a rational jury to have arrived at such a judgment. He further emphasized his authority to dismiss the determinations made by a jury at his discretion.

Engoron acknowledged “I’m an impartial referee, but it’s hard to factor out my own emotions.”

When a party requests Engoron to dismiss a case on the grounds of its similarity to another case, he raised an objection based on sartorial considerations. “What if the defendant was wearing a red sweater instead of a blue sweater?”

Judge Engoron faced criticism on the initial day of President Trump’s real estate appeal hearing due to his overt display for television cameras and nonchalant gesture towards the courtroom audience.

This behavior has been interpreted by some as indicative of his preconceived notion on the ultimate verdict.

The ex-president and his legal counsel are currently engaged in a court battle to challenge a ruling made by Engoron, which determined that the assessed value of Mar-a-Lago is merely $18 million. This valuation is deemed equivalent to neighboring properties that are significantly smaller in size.

In his address to the press on Monday, President Trump strongly criticized Judge Engoron and New York Attorney General Letitia James for their persistent pursuit of legal actions against him, characterizing it as a “witch hunt.”

This ongoing investigation originated with a case initiated by a Democratic prosecutor in Manhattan and has since expanded to encompass five cases across various federal and state jurisdictions.

In unison, President Trump and his legal representatives assert that the Democratic party is strategically utilizing the country’s judicial systems as a means to impede his potential reacquisition of the presidency in the upcoming year.

Post-indictment surveys conducted subsequent to each of President Trump’s previous legal proceedings indicate a significant increase in his popularity among Republican primary voters.

The presidential campaign has received financial support from its supporters, who have demonstrated their commitment by contributing funds.

This financial backing has enabled the campaign to effectively navigate political challenges posed by President Biden and to deride its Republican adversaries. According to recent surveys, the leading candidate from the Republican Party is projected to outperform Joe Biden in the upcoming general election.


On Tuesday, President Trump railed against Engoron and NY AG Letitia James, who brought the charges against him:

“Now that it has been agreed in Court that Mar-a-Lago is WORTH 50 to 100 times the Value the Racist & Incompetent Attorney General of New York State, Letitia “Peekaboo” James, ascribed to it (18 Million Dollars), & likewise other assets that were valued crazily low by this “Monster” that has allowed Violent Crime in New York to reach EPIDEMIC levels, and dangerous illegal migrants to roam free all over our State, we hope the Judge will TERMINATE his first ruling of fraud in that he was given false and ridiculous information by the Trump Deranged Lunatic, A.G. James. In actuality, I am WORTH FAR MORE than the numbers put down on the Financial Statements, not less. In addition, there is a far reaching and professionally drawn Disclaimer Clause boldly stated on the FIRST PAGE OF THE DOCUMENT. This entire case should be thrown out and dismissed. The A.G. should be reprimanded and sanctioned for bringing this case with its FAKE LOW VALUES, in order to make me look bad. Election Interference!” Trump posted on Truth Social.

Trump went on:

“The rarely used Executive Law that the N.Y.A.G. is proceeding under is VERY UNFAIR, and being used against me for that reason. NY Executive Law 63 (12) does not require a victim, traditional elements of fraud are eliminated (the only such law!), the law allows a politically elected partisan prosecutor to convince a politically elected judge, who may be friends, to destroy even a Political Opponent. This law may not be Constitutional and is not FAIR, and that is why terrible A.G. James chose it to use against me!!!”

Trump ended by blasting the leftist judge:

“Judge Engoron has been given false and grossly misleading information about my Net Worth by a lying and incompetent Attorney General, such as Mar-a-Lago being worth $18,000,000 when in fact the number would be much closer to 1.5 Billion Dollars, like other properties, including two that were recently sold for numbers many times those that were listed in the Financial Statements. The N.Y.S. Attorney General, therefore, committed FRAUD for Political and Election Interference reasons. This case should therefore be dismissed!”
