Trump’s Former Fixer Testifies in Manhattan Court and Senators Slam Manhattan Courtroom Atmosphere in Trump Hush Money Trial

Trump's Former Fixer Testifies in Manhattan Court and Senators Slam Manhattan Courtroom Atmosphere in Trump Hush Money Trial

Donald Trump’s former fixer testified in Manhattan court on Monday, telling the judges that Trump knew about a plan to hide the return of money meant to silence porn star Stormy Daniels before the 2016 election.

Michael Cohen was the main witness for the prosecution. He told the jury that he borrowed money from his home equity to pay Daniels’ lawyer $130,000 because he believed Trump, who was running for president at the time, would repay him.

After leaving Monday’s hearings in former President Trump’s hush money trial, Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-Ala.) said the Manhattan courtroom was “the most depressing thing I’ve ever been in.”

In his attack, Tuberville said that Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg (D) “acts like it’s his Super Bowl” every time he walks into court.

“First of all, I’m disappointed in the courtroom. I’m hearing, ‘Mr. Trump, Mr. Trump.’ He is ‘former President Trump,’” Tuberville said to the media outside the courtroom.

“Give him some respect. I mean, that’s what that place is in there. It is no respect. Here is what I’m seeing, too. It is depressing. That courtroom is depressing. This is New York City. The icon of our country. And we got a courtroom that is the most depressing thing I’ve ever been in.”

Tuberville went to the trial with Sen. JD Vance (R-Ohio) and Rep. Nicole Malliotakis (R-N.Y.). He said he was there more as a friend of Trump than as a fan of his a cause.

The comments were made as Michael Cohen, Trump’s former personal lawyer and fixer, was about to give evidence that everyone was looking forward to. Cohen has been called the prosecution’s star witness in the hush money case. There are allegations that Trump lied about 34 business records relating to a $130,000 hush money payment that Cohen made to a porn star in order to keep her quiet about an alleged affair with the 2016 presidential candidate.

Recently, Cohen and Trump have become hostile towards each other. This makes Cohen’s statement, which is the second time he has testified in a Trump case, very unstable.

Trump can’t say anything bad about witnesses, lawyers, court staff, or the judge’s family because he has a gag order. But that doesn’t apply to his friends in Congress.

On Monday, Tuberville spoke to the press and attacked Cohen, calling him a “convicted felon.” He also said that the charges against Trump were the fault of Democrats.

Vance also attacked the judge, the district attorney, and the judge’s daughter, who he called a political adviser who “is making millions of dollars running against Donald Trump and raising money for Donald Trump’s political opponents.” He said this before Tuberville spoke.

Cohen has already been to jail for a number of federal crimes, including campaign finance violations related to the hush money deals he made with women who said they had s*x with Trump. He got three years in prison in August 2019, but he didn’t finish it.

Cohen’s deep devotion to Trump faded when the president at the time pulled away. With books called “Disloyal” and “Revenge” and a podcast called “Mea Culpa,” the former fixer is now a vocal Trump critic.
