...but the footprints are Djt's

His moral failings are well-known. The key witnesses in most white-collar crime prosecutions Ocelot II May 20 #1
Yes Johnny2X2X May 20 #2
No, he isn't. He's been very effective. The prosecutors know exactly what and who Ocelot II May 20 #5
He has been a total disaster for the prosecution Johnny2X2X May 20 #9
That does not seem to be the consensus of most legal experts. Ocelot II May 20 #10
A lot of litigators would argue that the prosecution should have brought this up and dealt with it on direct onenote May 20 #24
Even seasoned prosecutors are not watching the trials. Hardly anybody is. jimfields33 May 20 #52
lol Torchlight May 20 #64

I think the average juror there EndlessWire May 20 #79
The prosecutors have all the receipts. usedtobedemgurl May 21 #93
You know what? I think the biggest danger here is that any MAGAts on the jury will decline Scrivener7 May 20 #89
Good point. Irish_Dem May 20 #90
Cohen must be The Bopper May 20 #85

Other witnesses testified for days too. Irish_Dem May 20 #43
Who are the ther witnesses? We've had three people take the stand in the entire trial: jimfields33 May 20 #53

Holy cow. It's a shame it is not on tv. jimfields33 May 20 #66
The jury has been very attentive and taking notes. Irish_Dem May 20 #69

Typically a good defense strategy Johonny May 20 #12
Blanche is not an experienced defense attorney. LiberalFighter May 20 #17
