The defense and the Prosecutor’s Office in the case against donald trump for irregular payment to the porn actress Stormy Daniels They concluded their final arguments this Tuesday after an 11-hour day, thus The case is now in the hands of the jury.which from this Wednesday will deliberate behind closed doors.

Some final arguments during which the former US president, accused of falsifying documents to camouflage a bribe to silence the porn actress and thus protect her run for the House in 2016, she said she felt, literally, “BORED!”.

This was what he himself stated during one of the breaks in the Prosecutor’s arguments, which Trump took advantage of to go to his social network, Truth Social, to make public – and in capital letters – his boredom in the Manhattan Criminal Court, in that message of a single word.

The judge decided extend the day four hours more than normal to try to conclude the final arguments of the defense and prosecutors on the same day and in the Manhattan Criminal Court room yawns were heard and seen after 11 hours of arguments.

This Wednesday, the jury will receive instructions from Judge Juan Merchan and The verdict must be unanimously agreed, something that could take several days. If a consensus is not reached, the judge will be forced to declare a mistrial.

False documents to buy the silence of a porn actress

The last to speak was precisely the Prosecutor’s Officewho stressed that the Republican magnate is surrounded by irrefutable evidence that He forged documents to silence Stormy Daniels and protect his run for the Presidency.

Lawyer Joshua Steinglass, in his last attempt to make an impression on the jury before his 12 members decide if he is “guilty” or “not guilty,” he painted Trump as the center of this criminal trial, the first to a former president in history from the USA.

Thus, he pointed out that his former lawyer and right-hand man, Michael Cohenwho made the payment to the actress, “he was more of a ‘finder’ for the accused than his lawyer“A ‘boots in the mud’ guy who could harass people and threaten them with lawsuits,” Steinglass noted.

The felony charges against Trump stem from payments to Cohen to reimburse as a legal expense the lawyer’s payment to porn star Stormy Daniels. The payment was made a few days before the 2016 election and, according to prosecutors, if the story of infidelity in 2006 had come to light, it could have cost Trump his election victory.

Cohen testified from the stand in this trial that once Trump was seated in the Oval Office of the White House, he refunded the money. “The accused did not actually pay a lawyer, but a porn star channeling money through a lawyer,” Steinglass said.

Trump’s defense, for its part, had described Cohen as a compulsive liar whose only goal is to destroy Trump. Steinglass tried to dismantle that theory by pointing out that whoever was his right-hand man never said that his former boss had a relationship with Daniels and that if his true objective was to harm the politician he would have given another statement.

In addition, Steinglass made a chronological review of the statements of the 22 witnesses and 300 pieces of evidence seen during the criminal trial, doing a detailed review of the calls, messages and emails before the elections about the case of payments to Daniels between members of Trump’s leadership.

The “irrefutable evidence”, according to Steinglass, are notes from Allen Weisselberg, then the Trump Organization’s chief financial officer, about how Cohen would be paid for the money he spent to buy Daniels’ silence. “The law is the law and it applies to everyone equally. There is no special rule for this defendant,” he stated at the end of his arguments.
