Opening statements and first witness mark the start of Trump trial in “hush money” case

In New York, jurors saw the opening statements in former President Donald Trump’s criminal trial, where he faces 34 felony counts related to covering up a hush money payment before the 2016 election. The prosecution alleges the payment was part of a scheme to influence the election, while Trump’s defense argues the charges are based on weak evidence. The trial includes witnesses like David Pecker, who testified about burying negative stories about Trump. The defense focused on the role of Michael Cohen in the payment and questioned the credibility of witnesses like Stormy Daniels. The trial is not televised due to New York law.
