Former President Donald Trump and his lawyers filed a memo supporting a mistrial in New York Attorney General Letitia James’ (D) civil fraud case, arguing that Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Arthur Engoron demonstrated his bias for all to see as he told the court nine days ago: “We are not here to hear what [Trump] have to say.”

A memorandum of law filed on behalf of Trump, his eldest sons Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, and the Trump Organization, among others, said: “Evidence of apparent and actual bias.” […] coupled with an unprecedented departure from standard judicial procedure has “tainted that process,” warranting a mistrial.
