In an unexpected announcement, former President Donald Trump said he would not be retaking the stand on Monday, Dec. 11, in his own defense in the $250 million civil fraud trial against him and his company in New York. Trump had already taken the stand last month. But as the trial nears its end, Trump was expected to be one of the last witnesses called by the defense before it rests its case in the civil fraud trial.

According to a post on the former president’s social media platform, Truth Social, that is no longer the case.

“I have already testified to everything and have nothing more to say other than this is a complete and total election interference (Biden campaign!) witch hunt, that will do nothing but keep businesses out of New York, I will not be testifying on Monday. MAGA!” Trump wrote.

New York Attorney General Letitia James alleges Trump and his colleagues committed fraud by inflating the organization’s value and falsifying financial statements.

“Whether or not he testifies again tomorrow, we have already proven that he committed years of financial fraud and unjustly enriched himself,” James said. “No matter how much he tries to distract from reality, the facts don’t lie.”

Trump has denied any wrongdoing. In response to Trump’s last-minute reversal, the attorney general said her team has already proven their case. The trial, which was set to resume on Monday, Dec. 11, is now scheduled to resume on Tuesday, Dec. 12.
