Michael Cohen Just Blew Up Bragg’s Case Against Trump

by  Matt Margolis

Alvin Bragg’s case against Trump has been in trouble as witness after witness for the prosecution seems to undermine it. Michael Cohen’s testimony proved to be no different.

Bragg’s team really needed a win here after weeks of testimony for the prosecution that proved devastating for its case. Keith Davidson, Stormy Daniels’ lawyer, argued during his testimony that the $130,000 transaction with Daniels should not be considered “hush money” but rather a valid “consideration” payment.

Hope Hicks’ testimony delivered another blow to the prosecution’s case when she testified that Trump’s nondisclosure agreement with Daniels aimed to shield his family from potentially damaging media exposure rather than to sway the outcome of the election.

And then Stormy Daniels’ testimony was expertly unraveled by the defense team, which pointed out how she’s repeatedly changed her story depending on what was the most useful and profitable narrative for her at any given time.

The prosecution’s case then came down to the testimony of Michael Cohen. Cohen not only admitted to recording Trump without his knowledge or consent, but he said the recordings showed that Trump was actually just following his advice.

“The most important thing about the audiotape is that there was an audiotape. For most lawyers, watching… listening to this tape is, is really an appalling moment. The very idea that an attorney would tape a client without their knowledge or consent just shatters every aspect of professional conduct, but the tape really doesn’t offer much,” George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley told Fox Business host Larry Kudlow on Monday.
