Ivanka said she hasn’t worked in NYC in failed appeal attempt

  • The former first daughter’s motion was rejected and she is scheduled to testify on Wednesday in Manhattan
  • Donald Trump and his legal team have been at loggerheads with the judge of his fraud trial
  • Engoron was frustrated by Trump’s responses to his questioning, asking for him to be controlled by his entourage as ‘this is not a political rally’

The weekend New York Times / Siena poll shows Trump opening up a lead over Biden in key swing states that will decide the winner next year – with a stunning 10-point lead in Nevada and a 6-point lead in Georgia.

The results have some Democratic strategists saying Biden must decide whether it is wise for him to continue his path to be the party’s likely nominee.

Donald Trump concluded his bombshell fraud trial testimony on Monday with a parting shot at New York’s attorney general and by calling the case a ‘witch hunt’ overseen by a ‘hostile judge’.

The former president repeated criticisms he made earlier in the day and accused Attorney General Letitia James of spending her time watching his trial while people are being ‘murdered on the streets of New York’.

The 77-year-old went further and demanded a jury trial and said the case should be thrown out ‘immediately’ as he walked out of the courtroom.

Former President Donald Trump plans to use the federal government to exact revenge on his enemies – from average Americans protesting his actions to former officials who have turned on him.

The Washington Post reported Monday that if Trump is reelected next year, his associates are already drawing up plans for him to invoke the Insurrection Act on his first day in office that would allow him to deploy the military against civil demonstrations.

The largest single-day protest in U.S. history was the Women’s March, which occurred the day after Trump was sworn-in in 2017.

The publisher of Mark Meadows’ White House memoir is suing Donald Trump‘s former chief of staff for allegedly publicly contradicting the main theme of his own book: That the 2020 election was stolen.

It comes after Meadows reportedly told the special counsel investigating Trump that he had warned the former president against making claims of fraud, and that neither he nor his boss really believed the election had been stolen.

All Seasons Publishing (ASP) launched a lawsuit at Sarasota County Court, Florida, on Friday.

New York AG Letitia James took the steps of a Manhattan courthouse to castigate former President Donald Trump after he went after her inside and outside the courtroom in his fraud case.

‘He rambled, he hurled insults, but we expected that,’ she said, amid hecklers outside the courtroom where Trump’s ability to business in New York is on the line as he faces up to $250 million in penalties.

James repeated her own claim that Trump ‘falsely inflated his assets to basically enrich himself’ to engage in ‘fraud.’
