Prosecutors continue to delve into Trump hush money trial as third week of testimony begins

Prosecutors in Donald Trump’s hush money trial are delving deeper into his inner circle, with Hope Hicks, a former White House official and close aide, testifying about efforts to prevent damaging stories during the 2016 campaign. The trial, now in its third week, is leading up to testimony from Michael Cohen, Trump’s former lawyer, who is expected to undergo tough questioning. Trump faces 34 felony counts related to falsifying business records for payments made to silence stories. His lawyers are attempting to challenge the prosecution’s case, claiming the payments were to avoid extortion rather than for political reasons. The trial is one of four Trump prosecutions and may be the only one before the election.
