Stormy Daniels Expected To Testify In Trump Trial Today

The Associated Press reports:

An attorney for Stormy Daniels says the porn actor is expected to appear as a witness in Donald Trump’s hush money trial on Tuesday. Clark Brewster tells The Associated Press that Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, is “likely” to be called as a witness in the trial on Tuesday.

The jury on Monday heard from two witnesses, including a former Trump Organization controller who provided a mechanical but vital recitation of how the company reimbursed payments that were allegedly meant to suppress embarrassing stories from surfacing and then logged them as legal expenses in a manner that Manhattan prosecutors say broke the law.

NBC News reports:

Trump took to his social media site this morning to rip Judge Merchan after learning who will testify today, but within minutes he deleted the post.

“I have just recently been told who the witness is today,” Trump wrote. “This is unprecedented, no time for lawyers to prepare. No Judge has ever run a trial in such a biased and partisan way.”

Trump again called Merchan “crooked & highly conflicted” in all capital letters and claimed the judge was taking away his First Amendment rights.
