Michael Cohen to continue testimony at Trump hush-money trial

Good morning. Michael Cohen, once one of Donald Trump’s most loyal lieutenants and enforcers, is expected to take the stand this morning for a second day after testifying that the former president demanded that he bury an adult film star’s account of an alleged sexual liaison weeks before the election.

Cohen’s hush-money payment to Stormy Daniels is at the heart of the historic trial in Manhattan criminal court. Prosecutors charge that Cohen wired $130,000 to Daniels’s then attorney just 12 days before the presidential election to keep quiet about her alleged sexual encounter with Trump. Trump is charged with 34 felony counts of falsifying business records in connection with the payments and had pleaded not guilty.
