Trump posts document online that he wasn't allowed to read in court

Former President Donald Trump posted a document on social media that he was not allowed to read during his New York trial.

Trump shared the information in a post on his Truth Social network on Thursday with a lengthy introduction.

The explanation

"This is the Paper that I wanted to submit that the Judge refused to take, because he doesn’t want anybody to know about the Disclaimer Clause at the beginning of each Financial Statement. This is just part of it!" Trump wrote.

"That case is a disgrace to the Legal and Judicial System of New York. Hopefully the Appellate Courts will stop this travesty of Justice that everybody is watching and fully understanding!" he added.

The details

"The former president included a photo of the disclaimer clause in his post, which says: 'Users of this financial statement should recognize that they might reach different conclusions about the financial condition of Donald J. Trump,'" the New York Post reported.

"Trump stunned the courtroom Monday when he tried to read a piece of paper he pulled out of his suit jacket while on the stand and asked the judge if he would 'like to have it,'" it continued.

The background

"New York Attorney General Letitia James has brought the suit against President Trump accusing him of conspiring with his business partners to inflate the value of real estate assets in order to obtain generous financial positions with banks," Trending Politics reported.

"Attorneys for the president have pushed back vociferously, arguing that a judge’s redetermination of Mar-a-Lago being valued at $18 million is an egregious calculation when compared to the values of surrounding properties that are just a fraction of the size," it noted.

Justice Arthur Engoron has been the focus of much attention during the trial, including posing for cameras and his harsh attitude toward both Trump and his lawyer.

The latest moves come as Trump continues to lead GOP contenders in the 2024 Republican primary that could result in a rematch against President Joe Biden.

If so, the legal battles will certainly be used by the Biden administration in political attacks with Trump fighting multiple legal cases during his comeback effort.
