Former NY prosecutor on Trump hush money trial: 'He's going to have to sit there' [View all]

Former Manhattan Assistant District Attorney Catherine Christian said she will be closely monitoring former President Trump’s behavior in his first criminal trial, scheduled for Monday.

Christian noted that unlike his previous civil trials, Trump will “have to sit there” and hear the things he may not want to.

“I will be watching for Donald Trump’s behavior,” Christian said Saturday on “NBC News NOW” “Unlike the civil case of E. Jean Carroll, where he got up and walked out the courtroom because he didn’t like what he was hearing, he can’t do that in a criminal trial. No one can do that.”

“None of the prosecutors, the defense attorneys or Donald Trump,” she continued. “He’s going to have to sit there. He will only be able to leave when there’s a break.”

Don't like the word "flounce". When you weigh around 375 lbs, "flouncing" is not on the menu. Plodding or blustering, ok jaxexpat Apr 2024 #24
