Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) just slapped Judge Arthur Engoron with a judicial complaint over his “inappropriate bias and judicial intemperance” in the case against former President Trump.
Stefanik accused the judge of “bias” and “bizarre behavior” in the courtroom on Friday in a letter to the New York State Commission on Judicial Conduct. Something that Trump and others have also accused him of.
“I just filed an official judicial complaint against Judge Arthur Engoron for his inappropriate bias and judicial intemperance in New York’s disgraceful lawsuit against President Donald J. Trump and the Trump Organization,” Stefanik wrote on X.
“Americans are sick and tired of the blatant corruption by radical Leftist judges in NY. All New Yorkers must speak out against the dangerous weaponized lawfare against President Trump,” she added and then listed the lengthy complaint in its entirety.

“I write today to express my serious concerns about the inappropriate bias and judicial intemperance shown by Judge Arthur F. Engoron in New York’s lawsuit against President Donald J. Trump and the Trump Organization,” Stefanik charged in her letter.
“This judge’s bizarre behavior has no place in our judicial system, where Judge Engoron is not honoring the defendant’s rights to due process and a fair trial,” the letter added.
“These serious concerns are exacerbated by the fact that the defendant is the leading candidate for President of the United States, and it appears the judicial system is being politicized to affect the outcome of the campaign,” Stefanik stated.
Trump and his three adult children have been paraded and dragged through the mud for a non-jury trial that follows the judge already deciding that the former president is guilty of fraudulently overstating the worth of his real estate holdings. The proceedings are to decide how badly he will be dinged for it.
Stefanik hammered the leftist judge for valuing Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida “between $18 and 27.6 million.” A number that many, including real estate experts, contend is ridiculously low.
“This is yet another example why Judge Engoron demonstrated bad judgment by keeping this case, instead of sending it to the expert judges in the Commercial Division where it belongs,” she railed. “Judge Engoron’s bizarre and biased behavior is making New York’s judicial system a laughingstock.”
“Trump allies have accused Engoron of acting with bias from the beginning of the trial when cameras caught him smiling when they were allowed into the courtroom in those initial moments,” Fox News reported.
Stefanik’s letter cited a number of incidents in the court as well as a limited gag order Engoron imposed on Trump and his lawyers.

“Judge Engoron has gone on to gag and fine President Trump for merely criticizing Judge Engoron’s law clerk, which is core political speech protected by the First Amendment,” Stefanik contended in her letter. “If anyone in America must have the constitutional right to speak out against the judge, his staff, the witnesses, or the process, it’s a defendant going through a process he believes is politicized and weaponized against him.”
“All Americans, including political opponents, must receive due process and equal protection under our U.S. and New York Constitutions,” Stefanik wrote.
“Judge Engoron’s disdain for President Trump and his politics are evident, and the Commission must take corrective action to restore a just process and protect our constitutional rights. Judge Engoron must recuse from this case,” she insisted.
Right to confront your accusers? First amendment? Judge Engoron is so corrupt and unethical that he virtually guarantees a reversal of whatever decision comes out of this kangaroo court. pic.twitter.com/FwUAT4AhlS

When asked for comment on Stefanik’s letter and the behavior of Engoron, Commission Administrator Robert H. Tembeckjian remarked, “All matters before the Commission on Judicial Conduct are confidential according to law, unless and until a judge is found to have committed ethical misconduct, and a decision to that effect is issued.”
“The New York attorney general’s office has requested $250 million in financial penalties and a ban on Trump and executives doing business in the state. The state rested its case Wednesday, and Trump’s legal team is expected to begin its case in chief Monday,” The Hill reported.
