When former President Donald Trump took the witness stand on Monday to defend himself in a civil fraud case Democratic Attorney General Letitia James brought against his businesses, things got rowdy once more in Manhattan Superior Judge Arthur Engoron’s courtroom.
Legal analyst Lisa Rubin took to the X platform to post a small segment of the proceeding when Engoron vented to Trump’s defense attorney, Chris Kise, about the leading 2024 GOP presidential contender’s responses while on the stand.
“Mr. Kise, can you control your client? This is not a political rally … Maybe you should have a talk with him right now,” Rubin quoted Engoron as saying.
That prompted Kise to respond that it would be better to let the “former and future chief executive of the United States” answer.
