Trump Pays NY Bond

Former President Donald Trump paid a $175 million bond to the state of New York to prevent the seizure of his assets in relation to several civil cases against him. The former president won a court battle to reduce the original bond payment of nearly a half billion dollars to a smaller amount while his legal team appealed the original rulings.

The decision came after a court ruling last week that reduced the bond amount from $450 million to $175 million.

Last week the former president said that he “greatly respect[ed]” the court’s decision and thanked it for its timely ruling.

The former president pledged to pay the amount despite disagreeing with the defamation and fraud cases decided against him.

Trump took to social media over the weekend, criticizing some of the major figures in the civil cases.

Trump wrote that he posted the bond with the “sadly failing and very troubled State of New York, based on a Corrupt Judge and Attorney General who used a Statute that was never used for this before, where no Jury was allowed, my financial statements were conservative and had a 100% perfect caution/non-reliance clause, there were no victims (except me!), there was no crime or damage, there was only success and HAPPY BANKS.”

“The case was a fabricated ELECTION INTERFERENCE con job, so bad for New York, where businesses are fleeing & violent crime is flourishing. The Crooked Judge, to suit his narrative, valued Mar-a-Lago, in Palm Beach, Florida, at $18,000,000, when it is worth 50 to 100 times that amount,” Trump wrote.

The former president’s said that Judge Arthur Engoron ruled that he was “guilty before he ever saw the case” and argued that the judge should be disbarred. The former president wrote that New York Attorney General Tish James (D) should be impeached.

The former president said that the money he put forward for the bond could not be used for his campaign and cited President Joe Biden, “Just what Crooked Joe wanted. WITCH HUNT!”
