Former President Donald Trump continues to target Judge Arthur Engoron. 

Trump is using his Truth Social account to do so. Over the past few days, Trump has published several posts targeting not only Engoron but members of Engoron's family, Engoron's clerk, New York Attorney General Letitia James (D), and others.

James is the one who has brought this civil fraud case against Trump, alleging that the former president illegally overvalued his assets on financial documents.

Trump has maintained his innocence, and he has alleged that James, Engoron, and the others have targeted him in order to interfere with his presidential campaign.

Trump's latest target: Engoron's wife

For months now, Trump has been targeting Engoron, Engoron's clerk, and James. But, this week, Trump has started to go after Engoron's wife.

On Wednesday, Trump wrote:

Judge Engoron’s Trump Hating wife, together with his very disturbed and angry law clerk, have taken over control of the New York State Witch Hunt Trial aimed at me, my family, and the Republican Party. This is such an embarrassment to all within the New York State Judicial System, as murder and violent crime rage like never before!

Later in the day, Trump retweeted reporting from Laura Loomer claiming that, in one way or another, Engoron's whole family is involved in the targeting of Trump.

The former president, after adding his own captions, retweeted X messages that Loomer claims are from an X account that belongs to Engoron's wife. Here is one example.

The messages generally state that Trump is headed to prison, and they include fabricated images showing Trump in prison attire.

Engoron's wife responds

Engoron's wife, through a spokesperson, has claimed that the social media posts cited by Loomer and Trump do not belong to her.

The spokesperson said, "Justice Engoron’s wife has sent no social media posts regarding the former president. They are not hers."

Trump, however, is not buying it.

In one of his latest messages, he wrote:

Judge Engoron’s Wife deleted her account yesterday, because what she said, in any other Court in the Nation, would call for an immediate Mistrial with sanctions against the Judge and the Attorney General. We demand to see her account before it was deleted, and all other Family Members likewise. Judge Engoron is a Trump Hater and Puppet for Letitia James, all wrapped up in one!

In the meantime, the appellate court has reimposed the gag order that Engoron had imposed on Trump. It does not appear, though, that the gag order prevents Trump from speaking about Engoron or his wife.
