The Eighth Amendment of the Constitution bans. That amendment says “excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.” Why hasn’t New York Judge Arthur Engoron been sanctioned?

The massive reduction in the unprecedented half a billion dollar judgment against President Trump (the first of that size against an individual) for  a non-existent crime is empirical evidence of how wrong this relentless prosecution Trump is. There are ninety two baseless, invented cases brought by Democrat DAs across the country.  The outrageous is normal.

The reduction was a win but it should not move toward normalizing outrageous bonds in a total warping of the law. It’s still naked tyranny and yet people didn’t seem to care because it was Trump or Giuliani or some other political opponent. So yes,  it’s a win. The whole thing stinks. But it’s a win.

HUGE TRUMP WIN: Judge REDUCES BOND OVER 60%, Gives Another 10 Days, Soros-Backed Racist Letitia James Crushed

Lawrence Kudlow writes:

A New York appeals court on Monday agreed to hold off collection of President Trump’s $454 million civil fraud judgment — if he puts up $175 million within 10 days.

If he does, it will stop the clock on collection and prevent the state from seizing the presumptive Republican presidential nominee’s assets while he appeals.

The development came just before Attorney General Letitia James was expected to initiate efforts to collect the judgment.

Messages seeking comment were sent to General James’ office and to Mr. Trump’s lawyers.

The GOP front-runner’s lawyers had pleaded for a state appeals court to halt collection, claiming it was “a practical impossibility” to get an underwriter to sign off on a bond for such a large sum.

The ruling was issued by the state’s intermediate appeals court, the Appellate Division of the state’s trial court, where Mr. Trump is fighting to overturn a judge’s February 16 finding that he lied about his wealth as he grew the real estate empire that launched him to stardom and the presidency.

The $465 Million Trump Judgment and the Eighth Amendment

A clear violation of the Excessive Fines Clause.

By: Techno Fog, March 25

How Donald Trump’s Volcanic Clash With Judge Engoron Unfolded

In light of the record $465 million judgment issued by New York Judge Arthur Engoron against President Trump and the Trump Organization, we present an important question: whether that judgment violates the Excessive Fines Clause of the Eighth Amendment….

Trump’s 8th Amendment Option

Excessive fines are unconstitutional.

This is all part of President Biden’s weaponized lawfare attack against Mr. Trump in order to stop him from becoming President again.

The Biden White House has orchestrated a massive lawfare campaign that aims to put Mr. Trump in jail for over 700 years, and take away all his cash, and his businesses.

Let me say iconic businesses, in New York, Florida, Scotland, and elsewhere. Mr. Trump remade the skyline of New York City. He rebuilt the Wolman skating rink, and on and on.

And here comes the New York State attorney general, Letitia James, running a scam that respected constitutional law professor Jonathan Turley calls “selective prosecution” and “mob justice.”

Take a listen to Ms. James running against Mr. Trump in her 2018 election: “No one is above the law, including this illegitimate president, so I look forward to going into the office of the AG every day, suing him, defending your rights, and then going home.”

Fox News legal expert Gregg Jarrett says, though, that Mr. Trump could file a petition in federal court regarding the 8th amendment. The Federal court would have to act quickly to issue a stay. But it may be Mr. Trump’s best strategy.

The 8th amendment says: “Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.”

And of course the $464 million penalty is supposed to bear some relation to harm done but there was never any harm done, because there were no victims and all the lenders to the Trump business empire made tons of profits.

So I believe as a non-lawyer that Alan Dershowitz and Gregg Jarrett are both correct in advising Mr. Trump to go for an 8th amendment constitutional appeal.

That would be a fitting end to this soviet-style New York sham lawfare battle against Mr. Trump who by the way is leading in all the swing state polls on the way to a potential victory in November despite what the Democratic crazies are trying to do to him.
