The prosecution rests

Unread post by def_con5 »

Unbelievable, Bragg presented no evidence Trump falsified business records.
Here is what the book keeper said on cross.
I classified the payments to Mr. Cohen as legal expenses. We paid Mr. Cohen to negotiate an NDA with Daniels' attorney. That's legal work. Furthermore, he stated he never discussed or consulted with Trump regarding the ledger entries.

Defense will move for a directed verdict. It will be denied. Then defense will begin its case.

I wonder if the case was brought simply to keep him from campaigning or was it a hail mary that the Trump team may have made an unforced error and pushed a conviction???

Or just get Stormy on the stand to talk about the encounter. Hoping the salacious would turn off his voters???

The defense has announced Costello is their final witness (today, cross, redirect, and closing arguments). Should go to the jury by the end of the week.

Mostly I think they were trying to break him. The left believe he has an extremely fragile ego. That's why the testimony was so salacious and vulgar. They did the grab em by the pussy thing 3 times.

The first choice, it's the only reason, to keep him busy...

Or they were dumb enough to hang their hats on Cohen thinking Merchan could guide the trial. He's certainly tried.
