Judge Arthur Engoron, who has been overseeing the civil fraud case brought by New York against 2024 GOP frontrunner Donald Trump, has been revealed to have published shirtless photos of himself into his school’s newsletter, which he edits and publishes.
The photos were published in the 51st and 63rd editions of the newsletter, wedged between stories from graduates of The Wheatley School in Old Westbury and fan mail from readers. The photos were first made public by X account Marco Polo, which describes itself as "the opposition research group for the people."
In the 51st edition of The Wheatley School Alumni Association Newsletter, published on October 2, 2020, Engoron included a shirtless photo of himself titled "BonusTorsophoto" in what appears to be a locker room.
The 63rd edition of the newsletter, published on October 7, 2021, features a before and after comparison of his October 2020 photo, as well as one taken in August of 2021.
The 51st edition of the newsletter also features a section from Engoron, who graduated from the high school in 1967, posting articles related to the early days of the civil fraud case, when Eric Trump was ordered by Engoron to testify in response to a subpoena.
Engoron founded the alumni association in 2007, with the first newsletter being launched in June of 2016. Other newsletters feature Engoron posing with fellow graduates of the school, and all feature a fan mail section with graduates gushing over his work on the newsletter.
Engoron is the sole decision maker in the case against Trump, which does not have a jury. The case was brought by New York Attorney General Letitia James. James alleges that Trump swindled banks by overvaluing his properties in order to obtain loans for additional ventures, and then paying back those loans in full, with interest.
During Monday’s hearing, in which Trump testified on his own behalf, Engoron was said to have yelled at Trump attorney Alina Habba, and slammed a table.
Habba said in a press conference outside the courtroom, "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."
Habba said that Engoron "has already predetermined" that Trump "committed fraud before we even walked into this courtroom."
"This judge decided this case and liability before we walked up those stairs. I didn’t have a shot. So right now we’re sitting here doing a whole dance and the only thing they want are facts that are bad for Trump."
"That’s why he’s silencing him. That’s why he’s telling him short answers, and that’s why he’s clearly enraged. His face is red. He came in hot, and he doesn’t know how to handle him."
