Trump's lawyers did not cross-examine him after lawyers for the attorney general’s office finished their questioning. At that point Trump could have said anything and read whatever was on that piece of paper. The Post surmises it's Trump's much touted "worthless clause" which tells lenders and others not to believe what Trump says.
(NY Post)Donald Trump randomly pulled a piece of paper out of his suit jacket during testimony in Manhattan court Monday — claiming it would completely clear his name in the $250 million civil fraud case against him and asking to show it to the judge.
The former president, 77, was apparently requesting to show both the judge and a prosecutor a disclaimer clause from a financial statement that New York Attorney General Letitia James has accused him of lying on in her lawsuit.
As he testified at trial in the suit, Trump held the document up and asked if the judge would “like to have it.”
Later, the real estate tycoon said: “I would love to read this, Your Honor, if I could?”
“Not at this point, not at this point,” replied Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Arthur Engoron — who is deciding the non-jury case that threatens Trump’s New York real estate empire.
