Trump’s Criminal Trial In New York


Donald Trump had a dismal day in court yesterday; the judge presiding over his criminal trial in New York City told a defense lawyer that he was “losing all credibility,” and a key witness described what prosecutors called a conspiracy to influence the 2016 presidential election.

The witness, David Pecker, the longtime publisher of The National Enquirer, detailed a crucial 2015 meeting with Trump and Michael Cohen, Trump’s former lawyer and fixer, during which, prosecutors claimed, they hatched a plot to conceal sex scandals looming over Trump’s campaign.

Pecker’s testimony followed a bruising hearing for Trump and his legal team. In the hearing, the prosecution urged the judge to hold Trump in contempt for repeated attacks on witnesses and jurors that they said had violated a gag order. The judge did not issue an immediate ruling.
