Judge in Trump trial to consider gag order before Stormy Daniels’ former lawyer testifies encore

The hush money trial against Donald Trump resumed in a Manhattan courtroom, where prosecutors argue for criminal contempt due to violating a gag order by making comments about his former lawyer, Michael Cohen. Trump also complained about the Democratic composition of the jury, leading to a contempt ruling by State Judge Juan Merchan. Trump’s attorney defended his online comments as responses to political attacks. Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s office is seeking sanctions for violating the gag order. The trial involves payments made to Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal to keep quiet about affairs with Trump in 2006. Cohen handled the payments, which were falsely recorded in Trump’s company as legal expenses. Further details are expected in the trial, including testimony from key witnesses like attorney Keith Davidson.
