Trump says 'corrupt' Judge Engoron should be 'looked into'

Donald Trump demanded investigations of the judge overseeing his New York fraud trial as well as New York AG Letitia James as he accused President Biden of running before reversing himself and saying he wasn't capable of doing so.

Trump, who is leading in the polls and has called for 'retribution', teed off on the judge and top prosecutor after a New York appeals court threw him a life line and slashed his $454 million court judgment in the case to $175 million – an amount he said he would pay.

His demand for probes came while Trump summoned 2016 nemesis Robert Mueller and railed against ' Russia , Russia, Russia' and blamed President Biden for the October 7 attack in Israel , which 'he should never have allowed to happen.'

'I respect the Appellate Division for substantially reducing that ridiculous amount of money that was put up by a corrupt judge named Engoron,' Trump said at 40 Wall Street, one of the properties James mentioned as being ripe for potential seizure if Trump didn't pay the judgment during an appeal of his fraud verdict .
