Donald Trump's Hush Money Trial Resumes with Key Testimonies Expected

The criminal trial of former President Donald Trump has entered its third week, with prosecutors expected to present more key witnesses, including Trump's former attorney Michael Cohen, to build their case on the alleged hush money payments to adult film star Stormy Daniels. Trump has pleaded not guilty to 34 felony counts of falsifying business records related to the payments, which prosecutors argue were made to influence the 2016 presidential election. The trial is expected to last around six weeks, with Judge Juan Merchan yet to rule on whether Trump violated a partial gag order that bans him from speaking about individuals involved in the trial.

Trump Hush Money Trial: Closing Arguments Delivered, Jury Deliberations Begin

Closing arguments have been delivered in the hush money trial of former President Donald Trump. The prosecution argued that Trump engaged in a conspiracy to cover up potentially damaging information during the 2016 presidential campaign, while the defense attacked the credibility of key witness Michael Cohen, Trump's former attorney. The jury is expected to begin deliberations and could reach a verdict as early as Tuesday. The case revolves around allegations that Trump and his allies made hush money payments to a porn actress and a Playboy model to silence them about affairs they claim to have had with Trump. The charges against Trump stem from the recording and reporting of these payments as legal expenses, which prosecutors allege was a fraudulent scheme. The defense maintains Trump was unaware of the details of the payments and that Cohen acted independently. The trial has garnered significant public attention and is the first of four criminal prosecutions against Trump to reach court.
