According to the Counsel for Trump, Cohen Completely Collapsed While Testifying in the Hush Money Case

After Michael Cohen “completely collapsed” on the stand the previous week, an attorney for former President Trump claimed on Sunday that his defense team no longer needs to question his testimony. This comes after Cohen collapsed on the witness.

Cohen, who had previously worked as a fixer and attorney for Trump, testified in the hush money trial of the former president last week. During the course of the trial, Cohen was repeatedly questioned by Trump’s defense team during the cross-examination phase.

During an appearance on “Fox News Sunday,” attorney Will Scharf stated, “I believe that Michael Cohen has just completely collapsed on the stand under withering cross-examination by President Trump’s trial team.” Therefore, at this point in time, I do not believe that there is any further need to call into question the credibility of Michael Cohen since I believe that he does not have any credibility.

In the hush money case, in which Trump is accused of committing 34 felony counts of falsifying company records, it was generally anticipated that Cohen would perform the role of the prosecution’s star witness. Reimbursements that were given to Cohen for a payment that he made to adult film actress Stormy Daniels prior to the election in 2016 in order to keep quiet about an alleged affair are at the focus of the claims.

In response to the allegations, the former president has entered a plea of not guilty and has denied having any affair.

Shannon Bream, the anchor of “Fox News Sunday,” posed a question to Scharf regarding the possibility of Robert Costello, a former legal adviser to Michael Cohen, testifying in the case. In an interview with Fox News the previous week, Costello expressed his belief that he ought to be asked to testify, and he also asserted that the legal team representing Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg was not interested in the exculpatory facts that he offered.

It was Scharf’s contention that the testimony of Costello would be the ultimate blow against Cohen’s credibility.

According to him, “I believe that based on Costello’s public statements and also his testimony before Congress, he would absolutely undermine any remaining credibility of Michael Cohen and, as a result, key components of the prosecution’s case.”

Scharf, who is also running for the position of attorney general in Missouri and is a Republican, stated that the prosecution has “abjectly failed to prove their case” against the former president up to this point.

According to what he said, “I believe that any fair jury that reviews the record would immediately and unanimously vote to acquit in terms of whether witnesses will be called, including President Trump.” The defense team is going to have to give some consideration to that matter once the prosecution has had some time to rest or relax. On the other hand, as of right now, it appears to me that this will be a directed verdict or, at the at least, an outright acquittal. This is only due to the fact that the prosecution has completely failed to show anything, even something that is remotely related to the crime.
