The Democrat Party can’t beat Donald Trump’s record, so they are unleashing an unprecedented lawfare campaign to try and destroy him personally and politically.

Slowly, the disgusting truth about these sham court proceedings is finally coming to light.

Now Alina Habba just exposed the secret meeting the judge had that should end this trial.

Did Judge Engoron violate ethics rules?

Former President Donald Trump’s legal spokeswoman Alina Habba realized she may have found the silver bullet.

“Well what do we have here,” Habba recently wrote on social media.

Habba shared an NBC New York article entitled “High-profile New York lawyer says he tried to advise judge in Trump civil fraud case.”

The article details a TV interview attorney Adam Leitman Bailey gave the very day Democrat Judge Arthur Engoron fined Donald Trump $464 million in Democrat Attorney General Letitia James’ politically motivated civil fraud lawsuit.

Bailey detailed how he spoke with Judge Engoron about the case in the hallway of the New York Courthouse without Trump’s lawyers present.

“I actually had the ability to speak to him three weeks ago,” Bailey told NBC New York on February 16. 

“I saw him in the corner [at the courthouse] and I told my client, ‘I need to go.’ And I walked over and we started talking . . . I wanted him to know what I think and why . . . I really want him to get it right,” Bailey stated.

“He had a lot of questions, you know, about certain cases. We went over it,” Bailey added.

But there is a major problem with this.

The New York State Rules of Judicial Conduct are clear on the matter.

They state, “A judge shall not initiate, permit, or consider ex parte communications, or consider other communications made to the judge outside the presence of the parties or their lawyers.” 

“Ex-parte” means a conversation about a case without the attorneys who are a party to that matter present.

Judge Engoron claims he did nothing wrong

A statement from New York State’s Office of Court Administration Al Baker claimed Engoron did nothing wrong.

“No ex parte conversation concerning this matter occurred between Justice Engoron and Mr. Bailey or any other person. The decision Justice Engoron issued February 16 was his alone, was deeply considered, and was wholly uninfluenced by this individual,” the statement read.

But someone is lying.

In a subsequent interview, Bailey reiterated that the two specifically discussed the Trump case.

“We didn’t even mention the word Donald Trump,” Bailey said in a follow-up interview with NBC New York.

“Well, obviously we weren’t talking about the Mets,” Bailey emphasized.

Judge Engoron’s conduct throughout this case has been replete with anti-Trump bias.

Engoron clearly decided Trump was a fraud because before the case even started he began siding with James at every turn.

Experts argue Judge Engoron crossed the line

Trump attorney Christopher Kise pointed out there was no gray area here.

Judge Engoron’s conduct was a clear ethical violation.

“The code doesn’t provide an exception for ‘well, this was a small conversation’ or ‘well, it didn’t really impact me’ or ‘well, this wasn’t something that I, the judge, found significant,” Kise told reporters.

“No. The code is very clear,” Kise concluded.

And former U.S. Attorney Brett Tolman agreed.

“Under ethics rules both the attorney and, importantly, the judge were out of line. I can’t imagine an ethical judge permitting another lawyer to engage them on the merits of such a case. The rules exist to protect the defendant from secret ‘experts’ influencing a judge,” Tolman added.

Of course, nothing about this case was on the level from the get-go.

James weaponized New York’s civil fraud statute to bring an unprecedented case where there are no victims for the sole purpose of punishing Trump for winning the 2016 election and for daring to run again in 2024.

Judge Engoron is clearly along for the ride.
