Rep. Elise Stefanik adds to ethics complaint against judge in Trump civil fraud case after mistrial denied [View all]

Rep. Elise Stefanik, a member of House GOP leadership, has filed new documents to her judicial ethics complaint from last week against the judge overseeing former President Donald Trump's civil fraud trial in New York.

In a letter Friday, the New York lawmaker added to her complaint by attaching the mistrial motion filed by Trump's attorneys accusing Judge Arthur Engoron of bias. The judge dismissed the mistrial bid on Friday afternoon.

The 30-page motion filed by Trump on Wednesday was “wrongly denied” by Engoron, Stefanik said in Friday's letter. Her original complaint accused the judge of exhibiting “clear judicial bias” against the former president, and called on him to recuse himself.

The complaint argued that Engoron had illegally infringed on Trump’s protected political speech and that he violated political contribution rules by making donations to Democrats as recently as 2018.
