Former President Donald Trump's New York fraud case in which he was found liable on Tuesday involved all Democrats, according to a new report.
The political emphasis has become a concern as the ruling occurred without holding an opportunity for the defense to respond.

"Arthur Engoron, an elected civil Justice of the New York County Supreme Court, issued a rare summary judgment that concluded that New York Attorney General Letitia James proved her case before the defense mounted its own," Breitbart News reported.
"He went further, sanctioning Trump’s attorneys and fining them $7500 each for filing repeated motions to dismiss that Judge Engoron decided were frivolous, disregarding the expert opinion of a former judge, filed with the court," it added.
"We are in a more dangerous place with this than I think we have been in at any time since our nation's founding."

"We are in a more dangerous place with this than I think we have been in at any time since our nation's founding," Trump attorney Jesse Binnall said.
"A New York judge says President Trump is liable for fraud. But Trump attorney @jbinnall says that same judge is a political activist and a 'Get Trump' judge. There was no fraud on Trump's part. Nevertheless, this judge engaged in judicial fiat to try to harm someone whom he disagreed with politically," Real America's Voice reported.

"The ruling came in response to the lawsuit by New York Attorney General Letitia James, who is seeking $250 million in damages, a ban on the Trumps from serving as officers of a business in New York and to stop the company from engaging in business transactions for five years," CNN reported.
"A trial is expected to begin next week on the amount of damages owed, and the full breadth of Engoron’s ruling – or how it will play out – remains unclear," it continued.
Trump's attorneys are expected to appeal the case, with no timeline in place for the future plans in the case.
The former president also faces additional legal cases in Florida, Washington and Georgia as he seeks a comeback bid for president next year.
The legal battles have not stopped his popularity in recent polls as he continues to hold a wide lead over fellow GOP candidates.
