Michael Cohen To Be Cross-Examined By Trump’s Lawyers In Hush-Money Trial – Live

Michael Cohen testimony continues as star witness in Trump’s hush-money caseGood morning. Michael Cohen, once one of Donald Trump’s most loyal lieutenants and enforcers, will return to the stand this morning to be cross-examined by the former president’s lawyers in his historic criminal trial.

Cohen, the star witness in the case against Trump, testified earlier this week that his former boss instructed him just weeks before the 2016 presidential election to bury Stormy Daniels’s account of an alleged sexual liaison, demanding that he “just take care of it”. Cohen is core to the case against Trump, because prosecutors allege that the former president cast reimbursement for a $130,000 hush-money payment to Daniels as legal expenses for Cohen, constituting falsification of business records.

The entire case is likely to succeed or fail on whether jurors believe Cohen’s account, or the defense claims that he is an “admitted liar” motivated by publicity and attention.
