Trump Says He Will No Longer Testify Again In Civil Fraud Trial

Trump will not testify in NYFormer President Donald Trump has said that he will no longer testify on Monday in his civil trial as previously planned, reflecting his growing frustration with the New York case.

The 2024 Republican candidate was scheduled to testify Monday for a second time in the trial, as the defense’s last major witness before the case wraps up. But in multiple, all-caps Sunday posts on his social media platform Truth Social, Trump reversed the decision and said that he will no longer take the witness stand.

The trial stems from a lawsuit filed last year by New York Attorney General Letitia James, which accuses Trump, his company, and his top executives of misleading banks and insurers by inflating his wealth on financial statements. James is seeking more than $300 million in penalties, and to prohibit Trump and other defendants from doing business in New York.

In the Truth Social posts, Trump repeated his claims, without evidence, that the accusations against him are baseless and a product of election interference by President Joe Biden’s campaign. He has denied any wrongdoing, accusing Judge Arthur Engoron of being “highly partisan & out of control” and James of being “racist.”
