President Trump on Tuesday revealed a disclaimer clause in a financial statement online that Judge Engoron refused to listen to in court.
As he sat through another day in court for civil fraud allegations, he brought out a disclaimer clause to prove his innocence.
According to the New York Post, this disclaimer clause found on financial statements proves that President Trump is not liable for any mistakes or inaccuracies on the forms because the clause states that recipients of the statement should do their own accounting.
However, the moment President Trump pulled out the piece of paper, Judge Engoron immediately refused it.
ABC News reported that Engoron said, “No, no, no, we are not going to hear about the disclaimer clause.” Engoron explained his reasoning, The New York Post reported, when he stated that it does “not insulate defendants from liability” and that it will “put the onus for accuracy squarely on defendants’ shoulders.”
Outraged at the disregard for the rules of the judicial system of New York, President Trump shares a copy of the rejected disclaimer on Truth Social.
Accompanying the disclaimer, President Trump wrote, “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.”
The disclaimer warns that “considerable judgment” needs to be used and that the amounts that are written on the statement do not represent the actual amounts.
As shared by CBS News, President Trump mentioned this in his testimony, saying, “The numbers of my net worth are substantially more than the number you have in the financial statement. Therefore, you have no case.”
On Truth Social, President Trump called out the injustice, writing, “This is just part of it! 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!”
