Judge Arthur Engoron warned former President Donald Trump yesterday in court in New York. “Could it be a little quieter?” said Engoron. “Above all, keep the volume down if it is intended to influence testimony.”
A judge ordered the crowd to be silent because Donald Trump spoke loudly during testimony against him, he writes Watchman. The witness’s lawyer had already asked to “stop commenting.”
Real estate value
Trump appeared in court yesterday for the second day in a row due to a civil case filed against him in New York. The former president is in danger of losing his real estate empire. That’s because he “provided clearly fraudulent reviews,” a judge previously ruled.
Reporter Eric Muthan then explained that this was a sore point for the former president.
Hearings are held behind closed doors. According to an Associated Press reporter, he was visibly upset by the testimony about the appraisals of his Wall Street office building.
A months long process
About a dozen witnesses, including former Trump accountants, have already been heard in the case. The process is expected to continue until the end of December.
Trump was absent from the hearings in the case against him last week. He also left court on Tuesday to testify in another criminal case against him.
