Former President Trump's attorney, Alina Habba, shared her grievances with the judge and Attorney General Letitia James after Trump's testimony today in his New York City fraud trial.

ALINA HABBA, TRUMP LEGAL TEAM: The judge has predetermined that my client committed fraud before we even walked into this courtroom. "I'm not here to hear what he has to say." Then was what rang true, loud, and could not have been more honest coming fro the judge who has already predetermined that my client committed fraud before we even walked into this courtroom.

"I'm not to hear what he has to say." Then why exactly am I being paid as an attorney? And why exactly are taxpayer dollars being used in this courtroom? The answer is very clear. Because Miss [New York Attorney General Letitia] James wants to stand right here like she did this morning and call my client a liar, call the company fraudulent, and make a name for herself.

She said this morning that the numbers don't lie and they won't lie in this case. Well, Miss James, I have a message for you. The numbers didn't lie when you ran for governor, and that's why you dropped out. And the numbers don't lie when President Trump runs for office in 2024, and those numbers are loud and clear.

This country is falling apart and if we don't stop corruption in courtrooms where attorneys are gagged, where attorneys are not allowed to say what they need to say to protect their clients' interests. It doesn't matter what your politics are, everyone has a right in this country to get up and put a defense. I don't care who you are, you have a right to hire a lawyer who can put objections on the record. You have a right to hire a lawyer who can stand up and say something when they see something wrong.

But I was told to sit down today. I was yelled at and I've had a judge who is unhinged slamming a table. Let me be very clear, I don't tolerate that in my life, I'm not going to tolerate it here. And you know what, you shouldn't either. Because not every American citizen gets a camera and a microphone, and what I'm seeing is such a demise of the American judicial system and democracy.

Miss James came out this morning and said that she knew Mr. Trump -- and always calls him Mr. Trump, it kills her he was the president, but the 45th president of this country, one of the best presidents we have had, has built a great company. It's worth a ton more than that statement of financial condition, and she doesn't know how to get out of it, because her politics won't allow her. She calls him a bully. She says he's going to bring out racial slurs, he's going to say things today and taunt her.

Well, Miss James, you taunted him. Before you came into office, before you saw one record, one statement of financial condition, you taunted him. You said his administration was "too male and too pale." Those are her words.

She said that she and Michael Cohen were going to be his "biggest nightmare." Well, I have some news for you, Miss James. Michael Cohen folded, lied, and crumbled. Your star witness, along with all the DAs and corrupt AGs need to pay attention to what happens when you let us take the stand. When you let my client speak the truth.

And the judge can tell me to sit down and he can try and shorten my client's testimony but it is loud and clear they've got nothing, they've got nothing but their politics. She's got nothing but her Soros backing, which we discovered recently, and I am sick and tired of seeing it.

Pay attention, America. Pay attention. Because when you are in court one of these days and you don't have a lawyer that has a microphone and you don't have a lawyer that can go on TV and you've got judges gagging them, what are you going to do?

We need to fix this country and stop what is happening in this courtroom. President Trump is worth a lot more and before she rushed to judgment she should have thought about attacking somebody with over 50 years of real estate expertise who changed single-handedly the skyline of New York City. She picked the wrong person.
