Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) spoke with Fox News ahead of President Joe Biden’s Wednesday national address, slamming the President for his “lack of leadership” in his first 100 days. She expects he will demonstrate more “virtue signaling,” according to Fox.

LISTEN: Sen. Blackburn: McCabe is ‘beginning to do a little shaking in his boots…fearful of perjuring himself.’

“He virtue signals, and the Democratic Party virtue signals, through these executive orders,” Blackburn said.

Some of these executive orders have undone the work of former President Trump. The Tennessee Senator said she sees these orders as “threats.”

“They know their policies are so unpopular with the American people they would not stand up to scrutiny trying to go through the legislative process because it’s not what people want,” Blackburn said. “They know there is an incredible amount of buyer’s remorse among the American people.” 

Because of all the virtue signaling, Blackburn said Biden has a “lack of leadership.”

“You know someone is calling the shots, and it does not appear to be him,” she said.

BREAKING: Trump ordered to pay over $350M, barred from operating his business in NY in civil fraud case ruling

Published

Former President Donald Trump and his business empire faced a significant setback as a New York judge ruled against them in a civil fraud case brought by New York Attorney General Letitia James. The 92-page ruling, handed down by Judge Arthur Engoron, barred Trump from operating his business in New York for three years and imposed over $350 million in damages.

The case, which unfolded over months of trial proceedings, stemmed from allegations that Trump inflated his assets and engaged in fraudulent practices. Engoron’s ruling cited a litany of charges, including persistent fraud, falsifying records, issuing false financial statements, and conspiracy to commit fraud.

Moreover, the judge imposed restrictions on key figures within the Trump Organization, including Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, barring them from serving in certain corporate roles in New York for a specified period.

Engoron’s scathing assessment of Trump’s testimony during the trial further undermined the former president’s credibility. The judge criticized Trump for evasive responses and irrelevant digressions, highlighting the detrimental effect on his credibility.

In response to the ruling, Trump’s attorney, Christopher Kise, lambasted the court’s decision, alleging political bias and a disregard for established legal principles. Kise argued that the evidence presented during the trial failed to support the allegations of fraud and emphasized Trump’s substantial net worth.

Kise’s assertions were echoed by Alina Habba, another attorney representing Trump, who denounced the verdict as a “manifest injustice” resulting from a politically motivated witch hunt.

Throughout the proceedings, Trump consistently dismissed the trial as politically motivated, accusing both Engoron and James of partisan bias. His legal team also criticized the absence of a jury in the trial, questioning the fairness of the proceedings.

Attorney General Letitia James, who spearheaded the lawsuit against Trump and his organization, portrayed the ruling as a victory for accountability and transparency in business practices. The lawsuit alleged fraudulent conduct and sought substantial financial penalties, a portion of which would contribute to the state treasury.

The fallout from the case extends beyond Trump and his business interests, with implications for the broader business community and the rule of law. The contentious nature of the trial and its outcome underscored deep divisions and raised questions about the integrity of the legal system.

Trump vows to appeal the decision.
