The courtroom artist who drew a rendition of Ivanka Trump during her Wednesday testimony at her father’s fraud trial in New York is being accused of being a left-wing activist.
The Associated Press reported she said she was not close to the kinds of financial disclosure documents that are at the heart of the case.
James has accused Trump and his company of inflating the value of its assets to secure favorable loans from banks.
Trump has denied the claims and has pointed out that any money his company borrowed was paid back in full with interest.
The controversial trial is viewed by many as an attempt to weaponize the legal system against the former president.
Ivanka Trump’s testimony apparently offered no real insight into the Trump Organization's business practices.
But her appearance in court might have exposed the bias of the court’s sketch artist, people on social media are alleging.
One X user juxtaposed an image of Ivanka Trump alongside her sketch and asked, “Where do they get these ‘courtroom artists?’”

Another X user shared the courtroom sketch and commented, “Ivanka is much prettier than the artist rendition. It was obviously a disgusting, democrat supporting court sketch artist. I'm sure Hillary would have been made to look like Marilyn Monroe at her very best.”
Yet another social media user shared the sketch and commented, “BREAKING: Courtroom sketch artist hates Ivanka Trump.”
The person concluded, “This sketch artist should be charged with a crime!”

The New York Post identified the sketch artist as a woman named Jane Rosenberg, who was on assignment for Reuters.
“Make me look sexy,” he reportedly joked.
