In a recent unconstitutional move, Judge Anil Singh denied President Trump’s request to halt the collection of $454 million until his appeals go through.

To stop enforcement, Trump must post a bond of the full amount of the penalty accrued in the judgment of his bogus civil fraud.

This is election interference, plain and simple.

Certain bureaucrats don’t like Trump, so they’re going out of their way to cause him financial troubles in hopes that it derails his campaign.

Trump supporters rightly called this out as crooked as soon as they saw the ruling.

Others simply wished President Trump well as he continues to fight on.

Some were curious about who benefits directly from this.

Whether the case gets reversed or not, New York is looking more dire by the minute.

The folks at AP News had more on the ruling:

In all, the Republican presidential front-runner and his co-defendants owe more than $465 million to the state. They have until March 25 to secure a stay, a legal mechanism pausing collection while he appeals, or they’ll be forced to pay the monetary penalty or risk having some of their assets seized.

“The exorbitant and punitive amount of the judgment coupled with an unlawful and unconstitutional blanket prohibition on lending transactions would make it impossible to secure and post a complete bond,” Trump lawyers Clifford Robert, Alina Habba and Michael Farina wrote in their request.

James’ office opposed Trump’s plan, saying his lawyers have all but conceded he has “insufficient liquid assets to satisfy the judgment.”

“These are precisely the circumstances for which a full bond or deposit is necessary,” Senior Assistant Solicitor General Dennis Fan wrote, saying Trump’s offer would leave James’ office and the state “with substantial shortfalls” if the verdict is upheld.

“A prevailing plaintiff is entitled to have her award secured, and defendants have never demonstrated that Mr. Trump’s liquid assets could satisfy the full amount of the judgment,” Fan wrote.

James, a Democrat, has said that she will seek to seize some of Trump’s assets if he’s unable to pay the judgment.
